Well... not used to cooking basmati this way, took my eye off the ball and it overcooked. My vanilla pods didn’t have any seeds so I scraped the insides and used that. Now the strange thing is the rice has a stronger aroma of vanilla than flavour. My sakay isn’t very blended because I don’t have a mini blender, still!! However, i’m so glad I only used 6 thai chillies because it is HOT.
A very different curry to what we are used to cooking but tasty and light.
I would use a tad less turmeric next time, it was a little upfront for my palate.
BTW I chucked the tomatoes in right at the end as they were sitting there, bit like the Ikea furniture when you always have a screw or three left after assembling something🤔 Did I miss a step?
Interesting man is Ernest. Doing great works. Thanks to both of you for something a little different during these Groundhog days!!

@Debbie Gorman I don't cook well under pressure - always takes me twice as long as it should 😳 - so well done Debbie 👍

@Hari Ghotra no need to apologise, it was work in progress and to be fair to you Ernest never mentioned them either😄. I am very grateful for every friday night curry club cook in and for the time and effort you put in to it . If I never feel like doing anything else during this monotonous period , friday night is THE one thing I look forward to and is sacrosanct. I even told my partner that I wouldn’t be collecting him from hospital if they discarged him yesterday 😂.

I think it all looks wonderful - yes it’s a very different style but that’s the bit I find fascinating. I totally forgot to put the tomatoes in so I’m very sorry about that - a new experience for me so a bit of a learning curve.
Thank you 🙏🏽 for your feedback and your support I really appreciate the time you give me.
