The weather this winter and spring has been so cold. Not the snow kind, just wet and with a very cold wind. The heating (which we have at only 20C), has barely had a day off and we have spent more on oil this year than usual.
Yesterday, we had just started to take Ruby for a walk when the heavens opened and we got pounded with a massive hail shower. We were soaked and chilled to the bone within minutes and returned home quickly. Ruby was shaking herself constantly to try and get them off her coat.
Although I am in need of a change of diet, wanting to go onto lighter food, sometimes, a hot and spicy meal is required.
Using this recipe, we made the full amount. However, we used low fat coconut milk as that was all we had. As such, it needed thickening a little plus we added a chicken stock cube. Next time, we will use just half the lime as it was also too much for us:
Yes it's been so cold hasn't it, even today while the sun is out if you aren't stood directly in it it's pretty chilly out there. I'm still in my big Winter coat for dog walks.ReplyDelete
Your curry look amazing, and I love a curry or dahl made with coconut milk too. I usually add some desiccated coconut in as well to really ramp up the taste. I do use the full fat version but I have a much smaller portion of curry in relation to rice so I don't think I'm being too naughty ;-)
I normally only use coconut milk as an addition rather than the main liquid.Delete
That recipe looks so delicious. I love the coconut/lime combination and am going to print it out to use - thank you so much.ReplyDelete
It really is cold, isn't it?
We enjoyed it. It makes enough for 4 or 5 depending on how much you eat. We both felt it needed the additional items but hold off on those until you taste test.Delete
Your curry looks delicious. The weather is so very changeable at the moment and it's turned very cold again here. XReplyDelete
We've had our heating on for more months than usual. I even put it on this week, which is unheard of!!ReplyDelete
