Cooking with gas
Since I came back from my fabulous Christmas holiday with my big sister in Canada, my life has been somewhat hectic and it was only this week that I started cooking again. As regular readers will know, I love cooking. It's one of the things I like to do to relax. So to have been so disorganised and unsettled as to not be cooking, well...
It's not that I haven't made anything to eat - I've been making myself porridge every morning, and sandwiches for supper. I cooked a poached egg earlier this week but it wasn't until Tuesday that I made my first proper dish - mushroom risotto, a recipe I know so well I could make it in my sleep properly.
And tonight I was inspired to make a yummy prawn curry - all from scratch (apart from the curry paste that is) and very good it was too. In fact, I was so pleased that I was inspired to cook that I decided to document it for posterity.
So I started with the chopping:
And then there was some stirring:
followed by some simmering:
And then finishing with the eating!
