Apparently it is National Curry Week. I'm not sure what the aim is, but several people have tweeted. Anyway, let's assume that the awareness of curry in Britain is poor and needs to be raised.
This is actually our second curry of the week, but I didn't take a picture of Murali's chicken dry fry on Monday night. We had it with tomato rice, also courtesy of Murali, as his wife brought us a jar of fab tomato pickle which is apparently what single men in Bangalore live on. You stir a couple of spoonsful of this pickle into your rice and supper is prepared. Beats the hell out of a ready meal.
So: pork vindaloo, from Richard Turner's book Hog. Delicious, and much more subtle than you would expect from the amount of garlic in it. Shredded cabbage, stir-fried with mustard seeds, curry leaves, garlic, chilli and ginger. Flatbreads, seasoned with kalonji seeds. Completely delicious.
