Curry Videos / Allen Diwan step by step chicken biryani
« on: December 16, 2010, 07:34 PM »
Allen Diwan is an expert in Indian cooking. Diwan has been cooking since he was 14, but for the past six months, he has been training in London with Atul Kochhar, the first Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin star. He has opened a number of Indian restaurants in Budapest, including Diwan Tandoori, Kama Sutra and Kasmir. Allen regularly gives cooking classes in which he introduces the public to the world of Indian spices and shares the secrets of the Indian kitchen.

There's 15 videos in this series.... :)

Just as the title says.....I've got my brother coming to Chrissy dinner and he's a fairly new convert to vegetarianism (he does still eat fish though). Can anyone recommend (or preferably provide ;D ) a good recipe alternative to Turkey/Goose please.

Any help will be very much appreciated :)

Talk About Anything Other Than Curry / GARLIC WARNING!!

For years Doctors and scientists have told us
that some foods are good for us, only to be told
later that they are bad for us, and again they tell us
that some foods are bad for us, and all the time
they've been good for us, and there doesn't seem
to be much proof either way to suggest what is
good or bad, until now that is.
Garlic is definitely BAD for us.

As some of you know, we have been battling with the council to get Residence Order Allowance for the past 2 years....well this morning we received a letter from the solicitors telling us that we had won and that the ROA would be backdated to the time our little boy came to live with us in 1999. :D GERRIN!!!!!!! ;D

Glasgow restaurant promises a hot date as it puts chocolate curry on the menu

It is the ultimate hot date: a Glasgow Indian restaurant has put a chocolate curry on the menu.

The dish combines two of the most powerful aphrodisiacs known to man - or woman - curry and chocolate.

Restaurant boss Johnnie Ginda has launched the dish in the run-up to Valentine's Day, but it will remain a firm fixture on the all-year menu.

'If you want your date to be really hot you will not fail with this dish,' he said.

The Nakodari is a medium hot king prawn curry that comes complete with a chocolate and strawberry naan bread and costs ?16.95. An accompanying strawberry pakora is also available at ?4.95.

Mr Ginda, 38, has launched the dishes at his new Nakodar Grill in Glasgow's Dennistoun district.

The Nakodari is named after Mr Ginda's home village in the Punjab area of India where it was perfected by his late grandfather and passed down through the generations.

'Only three people now know of this family recipe - myself, my father Bajen and head chef Minto Singh, and he has it in his contract not to reveal its secrets," said Mr Ginda, whose family has been in Scotland for 35 years.

'We believe we are the first restaurant in Britain that offers chocolate curry. We use dark chocolate with 85 per cent cocoa and it cooks up pretty brown but tastes absolutely delicious. Anybody on a hot date will feel the benefits immediately!

'There are two very distinct flavours - chocolate and the curry - and it tastes brilliant,' Mr Ginda said.

The chocolate is combined with ground coriander seeds, garlic, chilli, ginger and other spices.

Chocolate, the 'food of the gods', contains theobromine, a stimulating alkaloid similar to caffeine. Chocolate also helps the brain produce feel-good serotonin - which is believed to put people in an aroused mood.

Dietician Alex Bow, who has travelled the world investigating the sex properties of various foods, recently placed curry as the number one love food.

'Asian mythology refers to "the carnal spices" which are present in most forms of curry,' he said.

Turmeric's main active ingredient, curcumin, even helps loss of libido.

In a study of 1,000 people, researchers from the National University of Singapore found that curcumin may protect brain cells from age-related changes.

Nutmeg also boosts male sex drive, according to research at Aligarh University in India.
