I have been using concentrated "Turmeric with Bioprene" which is just black pepper and turmeric. The pepper increases the effectiveness and absorption.

My elbow tendonitis caused by a Levaquin reaction is almost gone after 3 damned years of dealing with it. Couldn't tell you if it was this, time, or serapeptase or a combination that cured it though.

For those that don't know. Turmeric (an ingredient in curry) is a major anti-inflammatory and possible cancer treatment.

Hold your horseradish, I'm cumin round the the mountain.

But mark my words-this recipe can't be beat. A thousand Islands couldn't replicate this taste.



Some of these jokes are getting really papadum.

and curry does not have potatoes, its just wrong for me


I have quite a few friends whose families are from India and they all put potatoes in their curry.

As a matter of fact, sometimes they are the best part.


Bombay potatoes is a fantastic dish although may be alnglo indian in origin.

Healthy and really cheap.

I'll put my recipe up later.

It's to die for, and real conversation starter to boot, it's an excellent dinner party dish. Basically you can use ant curry you wish, but there is fearsome competition for the best Bunny Chow in Durban. Reputations are quite literally made and broken on it. (Off topic ..... My apologies OP ..... I think BFFT is gonna work on your AV, if not I'll give a go tomorrow, tonight I celebrate)

I have never seen a bunny chow before bit have added it to the list of future endeavours.

I worked at a resteraunt a few years ago where we had a hollowed out Cottage loaf Filled with a rich game stew(including rabbit)

I assumed that was what bunny chow was when I say your post.

Oh man I never thought of using a cottage loaf

Bunny Chow just went ballistic and guess what's dinner this weekend ? I'll make the curry tomorrow so the flavours have plenty of time to infuse.

Great idea naanspecific, my thanks

If your looking for a very cheap and easy bread to go with your cheap and tasty curry then try this unleavened bread out. It's quick, easy and fun.

Take some plain white flour(it will depend on how many you want to make. I use around 200 grams but never measure). to this add about a teaspoon and a half of bicarbonate of soda(if you have none then baking powder or even cream of tatar will do).

Add salt and enough milk to make a rough dough, not sticky but not dry either and knead for a couple of mins. Kneading is not too important as the gluten content of plain flour is not to high, you will feel it start to spring back and it's good.

Cover in cling film and leave for about 20 mins then chop into pieces and roll it ount into thin rounds(if you don't have a rolling pin then use an empty glass bottle, you will need to use a little flour here. When rolled out you want to give them anoter 20 mins to start rising again.

Here is the important bit, While waiting you need to get a heavy cast iron pan and put it under the grill for about 20 mins. It will get really hot and maybe start smoking but do not worry, heat is the key here the hotter the better.

When the dough has sat for 20 mins and the pan is scary hot it's time to cook, it wants to ideally be about 4 inches from the heat of the grill( i use my pan upside down to get the best height for my cooker.

Pop the bread straight onto the red hot pan and back under the grill as soon as possible it should start to bubble and rise quite quickly. after about 30 secs it should have stopped rising, flip it over and cook for another 20-30 secs.

Remove and wrap in a clean towel while you cook the rest. you can have them as they are or brush with melted butter or ideally ghee.

I tried to make a vid to show how quickly they cook but it was a bit rubbish as you need both hands. It seems that the first one never rises as well but after the first couple they should blow up like a ballon, far better than the one in my vid but did not want to make a dozen breads just for the vid.

There are diffrerent ways to make but this is the cheapest I know of so gave this recipe.

An Indian curry is pretty much a spiced stew, predominantly meat and vegatables with a gravey.

A chinese curry tends to be a curry type sauce with some bits of meat, seafood and veg swimming around in it.

I have never been a big fan of chinese curry but each to there own I suppose.

Why not learn to cook then? Chinese food is cheap and easy to cook, the chinese were making it on wood fires when they lived in huts. Saying that some of them still do.

Try googleing Ken Hom, It really is not hard to chop things and then fry it

a reply to: nonspecificsee i hear that all the time that chinese cooking is cheap.buy chicken breasts its avg £5,then hit the rest of your ingreidents and it can spiral out of control,i do usually do a basic curry but that costs me like £13-£14 and thats for onions=£1,mushrooms=£1,peppers=£1 and rice=£1,packet curry sause=£2 and chillies =£1,then i have garlic,ginger and soya sauce,its not cheap when your unemployed.

Do you have any asian greengrocers near where you live, if so I suggest you check them out.

Onions are about 12-15p each, chilli's I can get a scotch bonnet for 20p, ginger is about 30p for a right chunk of root, soy sauce about 1.20 for a bottle that would last you months. Peppers in season are about 4 for a quid and rice is loads cheaper than the supermarkets about 20p per portion I would guess.

as for chicken I would avoid prepacked breasts as they are a rip off, you can usually get a whole chicken for a fiver, thats 2 breasts 2 legs, 2 thighs, 2 wings plus you can boil the carcas and get a fair bit more meat off, chuck in a dash of soy and a can of 19p sweetcorn and you have a great chicken and sweetcorn soup.

I recon I could do a proper bang on chinese with

a reply to: nonspecific unfortunately i stay in a small town and only place i,ve got is a tesco about 500 meters from me and even tho they say stuff is cheap it isn,t really,they did have diced chicken in that was quite cheap only about 2 months ago but they seem to have got rid of it for some reason but asking them why certain things have dissapeard from shop you may as well be talking to a brick wall.

That's a shame, It is far harder to get a good deal when you have limited options.

I saw this recipe for a chinese style curry sauce thats quick and easy, certainly better than £2 on a jar. you can make it in bulk and freeze it in bags to make it easier too.

I said I'd provide another recipe and this one uses the same ingredients (and a few new ones)

This one is grans Goulash.

Roughly chop up the sausages and vegetables, then roll them in a mixture of flour and sweet paprika. Fry them till they are golden brown and serve with a generous serving of gravy and bread for dipping. cumin also goes a long way.

What kind of gravy do you use?

It depends on where you are in the world
