Get The Funk 'n' Spices In Here!

After eating out and partaking of rather too many Pinot Grigios last night, I shall be staying in ce soir and cooking the (in some quarters legendary) DavyH prawn curry - spices, onion, garlic, ginger and fresh tomatoes all cooked down nice and slow before the smooth coconut cream is added and the masala paste-marinated prawns and chopped coriander tumble in finally.
I find this track works well with the stirring.

Booker T & The MGs - 'Melting Pot' (1971)

(another great slice of hot soul-funk from this).
[The curry in the picture is a posh BBC Food Magazine type curry, not mine. I hadn't cooked mine yet when I wrote the words - I have now, and it was nice, but it didn't have tastefully arranged limes in soft focus in the foreground. And the prawns were peeled. Just thought you should know]


  1. Now, the DavyH prawn curry is something I can heartily recommend. Served best with an Ibizan sunset, close friends, a seemingly endless supply of San Miguels and groovy tunes filling the warm night air. Perfect.

  2. Ah well, you know. We do what we can.

  3. I'm on a diet. I hate you.
    P.S. not really ;-). Haven't seen you on 'Teenage kicks' for a while. Don't be a stranger! take care.

  4. Now you've got me wondering what a diet in South Korea involves eating (or not eating, come to that).

    Rest assured, have been regularly stopping by TK - but In A Silent Way ;)
