The American Caliban
Visited Laxmi today. Got good stuff: hot curry powder, garam masala powder, tamarind concentrate, very fresh poppy seeds, tea masala, chana dal.

Came home and made a lamb curry with tomato, the garam masala, some tamarind, a glorp of plain yogurt. Put it on brown basmati.

Oh dear GOD that was good.

OH GOD IT WAS SO GOOD.

I have a mental picture of you sobbing in relief over your plate.

I tried to read your post out loud to Craig. God I hope it was easier to make than it was to pronounce. It's a hell of a feeling to feel like your in 4th grade again, reading in front of the whole class.

Wow, that sounds good. Care to share the recipe? Where is Laxmi?

I just kind of faked it. Basically 1 lb of meat, 8 oz tomato sauce, a tomato, about 4 tablespoons of the garam masala powder, and about 1 teaspoon of the tamarind stuff. Laxmi is in Tustin on El Camino Real in the "old town" part of town.
