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!

Seasoned French Fry Batter Recipe - (This & That)


1 cup + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 teaspoon Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (Major Secret!)


Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl well. Dip your french fry-cut potatoes in the batter. Fry until golden brown.

*Bonus Batter Recipe:

Beer Batter Recipe


Equal parts all-purpose flour & regular beer (your favorite)


Mix the all-purpose flour and beer until lumps are gone and the batter is an even consistency. Dip cut potatoes in batter and fry until done or golden brown.

Thoughts On Seasoned French Fry Batter:

These batter recipes can be used for french fries, onion rings, potato wedges, or any fried potatoes. Give Tator tots a try. You will love them! I prefer Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning because it gives the best flavor but you can use your favorite seasoning. The bonus beer batter recipe is a light batter and has a sweet taste to it. The alcohol cooks out during the frying process and allows the sugar in the beer to stand out.

More Information For You:

Learn about the first president of the United States to be served French Fried Potatoes in the White House. Food legend has it that French Fried Potatoes were invented in the late 1600s. You can discover more about the history of french fries by reading the FINDING LOVERS article called Not-so-French Fries: the History of Fried Potatoes.

Some Questions For You:

Do you like battered french-fried potatoes? Do you have a similar recipe you would like to share here? I would love to see your recipe if you have one. Did you get to read my recipe from yesterday? If you missed it, it's called Orange Chicken Recipe and it is a great Asian recipe. Take a look at it and leave a comment.

Food meme by Tasty soul food recipes on Facebook.

With one of my daughters baking fresh sourdough bread for us I have been enjoying more jam and jelly. When I go to the store I usually reach for jam or preserves to top my bread with. Jelly is my last choice and I like to pick grape jelly over any flavor. If jam is available I will purchase it first. I prefer strawberry jam but my favorite is strawberry preserves. Strawberry preserves taste the freshest to me and I love the strawberry fruit pieces in the preserves.

The most exotic homemade jelly I have had is Dandelion jelly a friend shared with me. I have never made jelly but I think it would be a great project. I have a mulberry tree in my yard and could possibly pick enough fruit from it to make jelly if I can beat the squirrels and birds to them.

So the question is, when it comes to jelly, jam, or preserves, what is your favorite flavor? Strawberry or Grape?

Keep on cooking!
