It's an incredible day in the Garden of Eden, and we're sharing an incredible feast!
We made a delicious feast for our volunteers over our handmade earthen rocket stoves in our sustainable outdoor kitchen today! (Weather permitting, @quinneaker is hosting another How to Build a Rocket Stove workshop for our members this weekend - check it out if you too would like to learn how to handcraft your own fully functional, fire burning appliance out of a few earthen materials.)
We had a beautiful Indian feast today basmati rice, chicken curry, and sautéed onions and mushrooms in tomato masala sauce with organic whole milk yogurt, garden chives, zucchini & bell pepper.
The rice turned out light, tender, and fluffy. We added some extra spices like cardamom for extra fragrance and flavor.
Curry is a classic Indian dish, and it is also the name of an herb as well as a spice combination. It is similar to a Texas chili, in the sense that it is a particular style of stewed/simmered meat and/or vegetables named after its most important spice flavor component, it is often in a tomato based sauce, and there are countless variations for preparing the "perfect" one!
The chicken curry we made today had a tomato based sauce with lots of onions and garlic, curry powder, ginger, coriander, and coconut milk, plus some spicy Eden peppers for a little heat. We also made a vegetarian version for those of us who did not want meat today.
We dolloped on some whole milk yogurt to add a cool creamy sauce to the spicy curry, and served some raw veggies on the side as a delicious garnish! It was a classic, comforting meal, and as always we made enough for everyone to eat as much as they wanted!
It's very pleasant to share a meal together at the end of a day, and having quality food helps keep spirits high and bodies healthy!
