Dinner with International Friends: Curries & Pudding!

14 Dec

A friend from Singapore invited me and a few friends for dinner tonight. The food and the company were great. Even though I was very tired from running experiments all day I had a really good time. Since I moved to the UK I rarely get the chance to have proper homemade dinner with friends.

We had 4 different dishes served with rice. Two chicken based curries, a dhal curry, and a tomato-onion side dish. I was very surprised by the last one. Tomatoes in England taste terrible, or to be more precise, have no taste at all! This dish, however, was¬†extremely¬†tasty! My friend said that the secret is in the onions that should be cooked in really low heat for a long period of time. And here’s a pic of the food:

Lovely colours!

The dessert was a bread and butter pudding, a traditional british recipe. I’ve never heard of it before and I didn’t expect to like it as it has raisins. I rarely enjoy food with raisins as I find their texture disgusting. The pudding served with ice cream was delicious though! I might try making it at home soon. The recipe looks easy and simple. It smells great too!

Here’s a bad pic of the pudding:
