The Goat Curry in William Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair” / Geitekarrien i William Thackerays “Forfengelighetens Marked”

A hot curry recipe found on theguardian.comThe goat curry in William Thackeray's Vanity Fair_post

“Give Miss Sharp some curry, my dear,” said Mr. Sedley, laughing. Rebecca had never tasted the dish before. “Do you find it as good as everything else from India?” said Mr. Sedley. “Oh, excellent!” said Rebecca, who was suffering tortures with the cayenne pepper. “Try a chili with it, Miss Sharp,” said Joseph, really interested. “A chili,” said Rebecca, gasping. “Oh yes!” She thought a chili was something cool, as its name imported, and was served with some. “How fresh and green they look,” she said, and put one into her mouth. It was hotter than the curry; flesh and blood could bear it no longer. She laid down her fork. “Water, for Heaven’s sake, water!” she cried.

Peshawari Naan / Naan fra Peshawar

A recipe for filled naan found on goodtoknow.co.uk
Peshwari naan_goodtoknow_post

This Peshawari naan recipe is simple and makes a great Indian cuisine side dish. They only take 8 min. to cook and complete any classic Indian dish. These delicious breads are traditionally stuffed with a fruit and nut mixture then baked quickly in a tandoor oven – an Indian clay oven that reaches very high temperatures.

They will cook just as well in a hot domestic oven but make sure they are placed on a preheated baking sheet so they start to puff up immediately (slow cooking will make them tough and leathery). They are best eaten warm from the oven brushed with melted butter or ghee and with a sprinkling of fresh chopped coriander if liked.

mulligatawny soup_post_thumb[2]

Originally this is an Indian soup, which the English have adopted as their own. Not only has it become an English specialty, but you can find it in Australia and New Zealand too. Occasionally one sees the soup made with mutton, but most recipes use a hen when boiling the stock.
