Curry On Toronto

Eating on the road can sure become a treat when, rather than walking into a boring smoke-smelling hotel room, you walk into a beautiful garden with simple chicken curry cooking on an outdoor stove top...

... chicken, onions, spices, tomato paste and slow cooking.

On another stove, basmati rice cooking with jardin bay leaves along with a strainer filled with black peppers, cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon stick.

Kitchen tip: When the rice is cooked, pour it out on a tray to let the steam out and keep the rice kernels separated.

The hostess's father recalls that, when working in Pakistan in early 60's, local cooks would serve curries with all sorts of fresh vegetables as topping.

Following this tradition, chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, raisins and coconut were sprinkled on top of the simple, tasty chicken curry.

After a satisfying curry meal, a flown-in somerville kitchen dessert was served including chocolate chips cookies, coconut oatmeal cookies and our unique Mink chocolates. What a lovely way to finish a long travelling day.
