Many south Indian curries incorporate coconuts into the gravy (my mom even throws in coconut strips once in a while). I would imagine the same is true for other South Asian countries.
I can't stand coconut, not the taste, just the consistency. I made some Bruschetta last night ill post that in a bit when I get home. Living in China I can't really get the correct bread for it
curries are like the easiest things to make too, it's basically pasta but replace cream w/ coconut cream + rice w/ pasta
[QUOTE=SiMoN 23259;32497585]Correct me if i'm wrong but isnt it mainly Thai curries that use coconut? And i never would have thought of a curry in a slow cooker, I usually make a stew in ours. But you've given me an idea.[/QUOTE] yes, but like i said, this is a malaysian curry, and malaysia draws a lot of culinary influence from thailand [editline]27th September 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=JLea;32501375]curries are like the easiest things to make too, it's basically pasta but replace cream w/ coconut cream + rice w/ pasta[/QUOTE] i'd like to try a more tomato based curry, or at least i imagine that's what a lot of indian curries are based on? something simple like a bhuna i think. [editline]27th September 2011[/editline] i'm very wrong! seems yoghurt is the base, very interesting! [url]http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/chickenbhunawithpila_67271[/url]

[url]http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/chickenbhunawithpila_67271[/url][/QUOTE] A curry is about as far east as ill go really. Besides the rice that is. I shamefully stuck to western food when I was in Phucket in Thailand and Boracay in the Phillipenes. Even when I go to Hong Kong I go get a nice plump steak and here in China the only chinese food I try is home cooking from one of the girls in the office. I might take some pictures of the wierd and wonderful that i find over here and post them. Anyway here is the bruschetta that I made.. Forgive the lack of herbs people. I don't have any in my fridge and I cant ask for it in a shop I dont know how to. I added chilli for a kick instead witha bit of garlic. Tasted ok, could have been better with the right ingredients [img]http://i.imgur.com/puJdT.jpg[/img]
but china has such wonderful food! :( put me right off british attempts at it when i got home
wtf [img]http://i.imgur.com/DYHlf.jpg[/img]
[QUOTE=Autumn;32504906]but china has such wonderful food! :( put me right off british attempts at it when i got home[/QUOTE] Your right Chinese in the UK isn't Chinese. All the girls I know that go to the UK struggle to find something on those menus but yeah besides the fish head hotpots and chickens feet soups it can be ok. The girl in the office that cooks for us is the only chinese cooking i trust. I dont try anything else because i dont know what I'm ordering. I dont fully speak the language yet. I have to point at a picture menu like a tard in mcdonalds! Where abouts in China did you go to?
[QUOTE=Cuel;32505002]wtf [/QUOTE] try Cantharellus with bacon! :D
[QUOTE=Cuel;32505002]wtf [/QUOTE] Just out of curiosity why did you part your food? I dunno what you made but it looks tasty. Bacon needs more crisp on it for me though Thought i'd share this photo, would love to see some of you lot cook with it. never used it myself it looks awful but I imagine its the same as black pasta. managed to resize this photo :) [img]http://i.imgur.com/BWJZB.jpg[/img]

Sichuan is a place I want to go, I hear its amazing for food. My dad brought a bag of spice back that an old lady gave him to put on potatoes and its amazingly good. Hong Kong is my favorite city. great places to eat shame its so expensive I've only been to Xi'an and Beijing not including the outlying cities around the one I live in.

It looked interesting! Yeah its a black chicken. Not sure if there is any difference from a regular Chicken. Might buy one and see what the deal with it is.
