Curry Spiced Terrier

Curry Spiced Terrier

Drive-Design and Noeknit are coming over for dinner and a pub session tonight, as they have been for the last several weeks. They've been very good sports as I've been experimenting with my new super automated pressure cooker and slow cooker -- with variable results.

I think I've finally got a winner. An Indian spiced chicken that is slathered with a spicy paste then slow cooked in an otherwise dry slow cooker. Could finally end my efforts to approximate the results of Tandoori oven.

Only drawback is that the paste -- with cumin, turmeric, chili, etc. -- gets everywhere. My hands are stained yellow and Oscar, who's always underfoot when food is being handled -- got a glob dropped on him. So now he's curry stained. Luckily I dropped it on the brown and white terrier, not the black and white one. Just looks like his color is melting a bit.
