…and of culinary skills, at least in my case. Lately I have been craving for certain tastes–hot and spicy last Wednesday, hot and sour Thursday (paksiw na ampalaya to be specific), tomato-y sour Friday, and curry last night. Really weird for a sweet tooth like me. Hope this is not just hormonal, as my doctor has been telling me for the longest time to shift my food preference from sweet to bitter. Hot and spicy and sour aren’t ideal either but there’s a shift, in the wrong direction though nonetheless away from diabetes-inducing saccharine.
None of my cravings were satisfied except last Wednesday when I had vegetable curry–bean sprouts, native cabbage, and tofu–at Dona Juanita in Kapitolyo, Pasig. It was so good (plus the place was quaint) that I wanted to have another curry dish last night. So this is what I have come up with today, another version of vegetable curry (thanks to Teacher Pio) . I still have to perfect though the blend of spices. “It smells good.” That’s all my household members could say, ha ha! But I so love the cauliflower in “secret curry sauce”. YUMMY!
