Thoughts On Shrimp Curry With Basmati Rice:

I absolutely love Indian food and this Shrimp Curry recipe is SHRIMPOLICIOUS!!! The curry flavor and other spices give it that special taste. I love making Indian food but I love to go to Indian food restaurants even more because of the atmosphere. We have a favorite Indian food place to eat at and we go there when we get a chance.

More Information For You:

Shrimp is used in many cultures around the world and has been for a very long time. To spite this particular recipe, shrimp is not a popular food in India. Fish is more popular in India for cooking. Here in America shrimp curry is very popular. Learn more about shrimp and the cultures that use it in their recipes by reading Shrimp: an ingredient in the center of a melting pot of cultures.

My Thoughts For Today:

I found another funny food meme I thought you would enjoy. I am sure this dehydrated water is not cheap. My first thought is dehydrated water is just air. So basically, this meme is trying to sell us air. Isn't that marketing for you and to emphasize that companies will try and sell anything. If anything let this meme remind you to hydrate well in the warmer months. We could all drink a little more water.

I would love to know what you think about this meme and if you have any jokes to add. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy this Shrimp Curry With Basmati Rice recipe.

Keep on cooking!

East Indian Chicken Recipe - (Indian Food)

Ingredients:

2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted (10 3/4 ounces each)
1 1/2 cans of frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted (6 ounces each)
2 teaspoons curry powder
1/4 cup butter or margarine
8 whole chicken breasts (boneless & skinless)
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup currants
Salt and pepper to your taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the soup, orange juice concentrate, and curry powder. Melt butter in a large shallow baking dish in the oven. Remove from oven, and coat chicken with melted butter. Arrange chicken in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with soup mixture. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven. Baste with the sauce, and sprinkle with almonds. Return to the oven, and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Sprinkle with currants, and continue baking for 15-20 minutes. This dish can be assembled early and baked just before serving. It is nice with wild rice and crisply cooked green vegetables.

Thoughts On East Indian Chicken:

If you've never had Indian food let this recipe be your introduction. Indian Chicken is delicious. I remember first tasting Indian food at a local Indian restaurant. It blew my mind! I had never tasted anything like it before. Maybe it was the curry. The curry spice in food was new to me. This was about 7 years ago. I actually asked myself why I had not tasted Indian food before. I was missing out. There is spicy Indian and non-spicy food with a creamy taste.

I recommend adding Basmati rice to this dish. Basmati is long and slender rice with a specific aroma you will love.

More Information For You:

East Indian Chicken originates from India. I want to share some information on curry. Curry is what gives East Indian Chicken its specific flavor and no other can compare. Curry reflects the Indian culture. It is a spice that is also very popular in American cooking culture. Curry has a very interesting history. FOOD&WINE wrote a very informative article called The Real Story of Curry that you will enjoy.

Some Questions For You:

Do you like Indian food? What is your favorite Indian dish? Do you remember the first time you tasted Indian food? Please share your experience here with other readers. Did you see yesterday's recipe? If you missed it, it's called Key West Salad Recipe and it is a delicious fruit salad that is very easy to make. Take a look at it and leave a comment.

My Thoughts For Today:

Marshmallows for the grand peeps!

Since I became a grandfather, known as "Papaw" to these sweet little ones, I have made it a ritual to bring marshmallows to my little grandchildren. I know sugar is not good for children. They do not get sugar all the time but I want them to always remember me bringing them marshmallows as a core memory. I try to find different flavors of marshmallows so they can try something new. Regular vanilla marshmallows are the best in my opinion.

I found these YUMMALLO Sour marshmallows and thought it would be fun for them to try. The flavors in this bag are strawberry, blue raspberry, and cherry. They are sugar-coated. There ya go again, Grandpa! Giving the grandbabies sugar. 

Have you seen or tried these marshmallows? I found them on the baking aisle alongside the regular marshmallows. Little children and grandchildren grow so fast. I think it's good to create as many good memories as possible for them. Food is a great way to create memories. Maybe I should try bringing them bags of carrots. That may be more healthy but I guess it is the mid-western upbringing in me.

What do you think about me bringing my grandchildren marshmallows? I don't do it very often. Let me know your thoughts.

Keep on cooking!
