CURRY IS THE ONLY FOOD WORTH MENTIONING
P lovers - this topic is Big....and will be devoped by The P.
Sad French people are wont to say that the British cannot cook - that their culinary skills are non-existent.Why do they say this?
Answer = because we the Brits have kicked their gallic arses in wars and skirmishes -(so many times) and rescued them from the Nazis...if it werent for us (the Brits) the Frogs would all be speaking German now.The Frogs are embarrased by this and have a pop at the only thing they think they excell at...cooking. DELUSIONAL MUPPETS.
Anyway P digresses.
It's a Fact that the most marvelous food is Indian Food (which was invented by the Brits anyway, and is now our official cuisine).
Mr P has eaten at many fine restaurants and has an excellent chef at home (Italian). But it is a fact that Curry is a drug..it is not just a food. Okay - P accepts that He has had more spectacular food experiences at Italian and in English restaurants BUT P Lovers, nothing can beat the Curry.
The aroma of a Vindaloo is as captivating and hedonistic as anything this world has to offer.
What can be better than:
- popadoms and assorted pickles to start
- onion baji as first course
- prawn vindaloo
- a chapati or two
- pilau rice
- brinjal baji
Nothing can beat that. Time passes...time passes....time passes....until someone says "Mr Dear P, when did we last have a curry?" Are those imortal words ever uttered in connection with any other cuisines? Never.
What can crack the heart-strings more than a bowl of Tindaloo or Phal?
- You can stick your French food - pretentious and overpriced
- Italian is okay (and P should know - He is Italian - although the fish is very good)
- USA food = Burgers and fries....with triple sized portions. No-wonder 98% of Americans are obese.
- Chinese - okay P accepts that this is a close second to Indian
But P lovers - all Indian food is magical....the excitement in seeing that curry trolley approach the table...the dizzy, heady excitement. The build of tension as time without a curry acumulates.
The British have the greatest restaurants - the Curry Houses of Britain are one of the wonders of the world. Those who disagree are either ignorant or in denial.
Preach it P
