I was all thrilled at discovering a Thai grocery store on my way back from the gym two days back and since i had a Thai cook book from the library with me, i had to try atleast one recipe before returning it. Its actually walking distance from my apartment, but since it was windy and cold i decided to hop on to a bus. It was just two stops away, but i went into day dreaming mode and missed my stop. OK didn't panic because i was sure the next stop wasn't too far, but it was and i ended up pretty far away from the destination, one that i had never been to. Had to walk to another bus stop, wait for a good 15 minutes for a bus and after all that chakkar, i said goodbye to Thai cooking. Picked up some prawns from Sainsbury's and decided to try out one of Shab's recipes. The king prawns and drumsticks in a thick coconut gravy seemed apt for the weather and i wasn't disappointed. Didn't have any drumsticks and so went ahead with just the prawn curry. It was delicious and soothing, not to mention spicy, on a cold day like yesterday. ThanksShab, for the tasty recipe. I followed her recipe to the dot. Do check it out here.
I stumbled upon Mowielicious quite a while back and keep visiting it just for the amazing pictures. However, since i had an abundance of pear leftover (this is before the pear loaf btw) I decided to give a shot at the Pear Clafoutis which is pretty much easy if you have all the ingredients. It was a late night expedition and lighting wasn't good and i was pissed off about something and so only took one picture, that too on the kitchen top, which obviously hasn't come out well. Don't judge this one by the pic, because it really really tasted good...warm especially. Do give it a shot sometime. Recipe followed to the dot and can be found here.
