The other night , I was just home from work and gassing to Ma Beasty on MSN messenger. I was just saying to her I didnt know what to have for dinner , and I could not be bothered with too much cooking.She said try this chickpea curry recipe , its a peace of cake , dead quick etc etc

1 Onion Chopped
1 clove garlic chopped
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 small potatoes pelled and fine diced (add creamyness and thickening to sauce)
1 can chick peas
1 tsp curry powder(depending on taste)
1 tsp garam masala
Seasoning to taste

1.Sweat off onion and garlic in 2 tbls oil
2.Add curry cook for 2 minutes
3.Add tomatoe and potato dice and simmer for 20 minutes , then mash or blend
4.Add Chickpeas and garam masala and simmer for 10 more minutes

I have to say it was un expectedly revolting . Texture , flavour , wrong on so many levels .Added to which I woke up in the night with shocking stomach cramps(I was dreaming I was having a baby) followed by a dreadfull gastric incident , that had me enthroned in the lav for a good 30 minutes.
The next day I spoke to Ma Beasty and said that curry was terrible.
She said , far too gleafully for my liking
'I know !! it was really , really horrible ,Your father goes green if I mention it, I just wanted to see if you thought the same' and then laughed
This is just petty revenge for the Steamed mushroom pudding incident
(Which I wont go into as it still makes me feel sick)
One Expects better of ones parents :-(

Gorilla Bananas said...

Tomatoes and potatoes are never going to work like that. Next time give us your best spam recipe.

BEAST said...

Indeed they didnt work Mr B, the chickpeas were just the crowning glory in inedibility.
Spam and a fresh buttered (propper butter mind)roll....what more could you ask.We used to have spam rolls when we went on trips as a kid....they bring back some very happy memories :-)

Was it a boy or a girl?

This explains why you had exploding hemorrhoids.

The Old Tarf said...

Blame it on the Vindaloo. One way to get an enema.

Great way to lose weight though!

It sounds quite OK to me...if a bit lacking in meat. I wonder why it had such an explosive effect? I shall give Mu Tai a ring and see if she can explain... I will ask her to pop by your place later with something to settle your stomach...

BEAST said...

MJ have you been drinking....it was chickpeas I dont think they have a sex.

Old Tarf . Welcome . It was a hidious way to lose weight , otherwise dysentry would be a popular aid to dieting.

Mr M . I am bolting the door and hiding under the stairs , god knows what a Miss Mu concoction would do to my tortured intestines.
