Not much for Indian food but then again around here all you can get is Curry and the smell of curry literally makes me sick to my stomach. Maybe if i could find NON curry Indian food i would like it. My Fav would have to be Thai.

Have you thanked a US Solider today?If not you should.

I can commensurate with that. Problem is most of that stuff you likely smell is americanized yellow curry. I grew up smelling that occasionally and actually thought until deep into college that curry was a spice itself until I learned better. Then on a whim (it's amazing what we'll do for a pretty girl) I took a Thai cooking class and learned that not only was curry not a spice itself but a combination of spices and that there were MANY types of curries, thai, indian, indonesian, malaysian, etc. I simply love thai curries like a thai green curry infused with coconut milk with seafood, or a red penang-style curry with beef (which I first tried in.....Penang!)

I also then learned that the yellow crap powder sold in spice bottles by the big food companies like Lawry's and such is by no means real indian curry. Once I tried the REAL stuff I started to really like indian food.

Smile WOW what great recipes!!

We make a very simple Chili Con Queso. It is good as a dip, as a topping for vegetables, meat or any way you can think of using it.

1-small onion (I like to us white onions) diced, placed in a microwave safe dish with butter and diced up garlic . Saute until onion is partially cooked, stirring often.

1 large can tomatoes mashed up or diced small or if I use tomatoes I put up I use a quart jar or 2 pint jars, add a large pinch of baking soda and mix well.

Add to the above items 1 small box of Mexican velveta cut up in pieces and a couple of handfuls of grated cheddar or longhorn cheese (the cheese I use the most has yellow and white cheese mixed together). (Sorry, I don't measure...I add based on how thick I want the queso to be ). Microwave until the cheese is melted, stirring often.

Have a great day, adimeatatime

Oh ya i know i like the Thai curry's(which are more like hot sauces than what we think of as a curry). There is an Indian Couple that own a local motel(not trying to stereotype so please dont take it that way) I cant even walk in the Door because what ever they cook for themselves the Smell just instantly makes me sick, i assumed it was Indian Curry, Maybe It is the Yellow Americanized Curry dunno all i know is it Stinks and the Smell stays their ALL THE TIME!

Rumakie(spelling?)

This is one of my Fav Appetizers, I do believe it is Japanese in origin but i have had it i Japanese,Chinese,and Korean restaurants.

Making it at home is Simple and Easy.

You will need:

1 Lb Bacon(Whatever your favorite brand is i would avoid Maple Flavored bacon though.)

1 lb Liver (Normally Chicken livers are used, but if you cant find them Beef and Pork Liver will also work but requires cutting)

1 Large Onion(again what ever is your favorite type onion i have even used Red Onions)

1 box toothpicks

Grease or Lard(again preference thing Any cooking oil or grease will work)


Use a Sauce pan and Fill it half way with grease(a Deep fryer works AWESOME if you have one) Get the grease good and hot (medium-high heat)

Peal your onion, and cut it into petals(should look like a little boat) Put either 1 chicken liver or one cube of beef or pork liver on the onion and Wrap it in bacon Then push tooth pick all the way through to hold it all together.

Deep fry until completely done, the bacon should be a dark brown but not burnt and should be crunchy.

Serve with either Sweet and Sour sauce or Spicy Asian Mustard.

YUMMY!
