An Italian cook once said, "Every risotto is only one risotto." By that he meant that risotto is never the same twice.
When it comes to curries, echoing the Italian's words, "every curry is only one curry."
This is my approach to curry-making and it depends on what is available in the kitchen.

A good Nasi Lemak is about getting the rice right along with a good sambal, fried anchovies (ikan bilis), roasted peanuts and sliced cucumbers.
I have blogged various posts on this and you can check them out here.
Of course this dish can be made more special for parties with additional dishes. For this particular party, I opted for fried chicken and dry seafood curry.
I love Hindi films. Surprising, eh?
I grew up as a kid singing Chal, Chal Mere Saathi oh Mere Haathi from the film Haathi Mere Saathi (Elephant my friend).
In those days, when you like a movie, you watch it many times. You pay 60 cents for the ticket and you laugh and cry again.
In recent years, I discovered The Three Idiots. My wife was sceptical about watching a Hindi film but she fell for the Idiot very quickly. It must be around 5-6 screenings now and each time, we laugh and cry again. It is an entertaining and powerful movie, poking fun at our education systems. Rated highly in Rotten Tomatoes...
