While it is true that Hindus don't eat beef, not all people from India are Hindus. Off the top of my head, I know that beef dishes show up in the cuisines of Goa and Kerala. However, naan is not usually made into bread pudding either. Never claimed that I wasn't a heretic.

Now that gets the creative juices going... nicely done fusion!
Putting that one in the scrap book, bravo! very well balanced.
I don't have the energy to play anymore. it's slap it on the plate & eat around here these days.
Last night was standard fare, NY's on the grill, baked potato & salad......
Tonight was Fresh Dungeness Crab served cold, Yukon Gold potato salad, green salad, Italian bread & sugar free rocky road ice cream.
No more cooking for me this week.
Nice plating, cheflayne.
I roasted the halved aubergines (eggplant) for an hour in the oven the day before and was planning to make yet another puree. Found a recipe for an aubergine salad and made it. It's a very wellcome cold preparation on the very first hot days of the year we had yesterday and the day before.
There's first a sauce based on tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and warm water. Then a bunch of fresh herbs; mint, parsley and lemon verbena. Then some greek yoghurt and finished wit a sprinkle of spanish smoked paprika powder (pimenton).
Nicko, that dish can make any heart skip a beat, a family favourite.
BTW what a classic dish to pick , your wife must of loved it.
@ Chris : Nice eggplant dish. Have you ever made a terrine of eggplant with roasted veg ? I hope to make one soon.

ChrisB - That salad has some meat to it! Although I'm not a huge fan of egglant (I think I've never had it prepared well) it looks very good and well rounded.
Nicko - I had to look that up. That sounds like a very hearty dish. Looks great!
Ordo - Skrimps? That looks like a sweet/hot sauce. Any details?
@Chris: great eggplants.
@Nicko: i found the recipe HERE. Must be exceptional.
Thanks all for the kind words on the eggplant dish!
@Petals; I would love to see your terrine with eggplant.
@Eastshores; some people don't like eggplant because they had a bad experience before. One thing about eggplant; it has to be cooked until nicely soft. Halfcooked eggplant, which is often served, is horrible.
@Nicko; brandade de morue? As in potato puree and salted cod? A truly great classic!
Vegetarian sweet potato chili. Turned out much better than I expected it to! First time making it. YUMMY!
Was able to get some "decent" fish yesterday at the market. Made salmon, polenta cake, asparagus, a little avocado sauce.
tried to be healthy but cheated with the crispy fried rings.
Lucas and Pollo.. talk about a first course and second course for my eyeballs! Both are beautiful images.
Lagom, that is fantastic! I love the idea that others can use our (U.S.) excuse for eating tasty food as a way to eat tasty foods too! It sounds like you had a great time. I wish we had that cake at our BBQ!
Tried to make the best out of a measly portion of pre-frozen haddock I got yesterday at the market. Pan roasted tomatoes, cannellini beans, with garlic confit, bacon and rosemary.
It's a simple recipe. Just need some original Chinese sauces and ingredients my friend.
There was ( maybe still is ) a place in town, Long Life Veggie House, that had The Best eggplant in garlic sauce. I need to work on making a tasty version of that. Maybe tomorrow? Wife wasn't home for dinner, gorged myself on liver. I love it, she doesn't
