Chicken and onion curry

Saveur Magazine has a recipe for a chicken and onion curry from January 27, 2010. It took a little more than an hour to cook, but the results were very much worth it - delicious, and worth repeating. We had the meal with rice, kale, and a daikon raita from food.com that I kind of liked but which was not a big hit with the rest of the table. The current meal planning regime here uses a Google calendar and a question at the end of every meal: do you want this again, and how many weeks before we have it again? »

“Learn this one weird trick” “Grocery stores hate him” Really though it’s pretty simple. Lucky’s had a sale on kale for 99 cents, so I bought one bunch. The clerk rang it up at $2.49, and when I asked, they said it was organic. I figured I had pulled it from the wrong bin, whatever. Get home, cook the kale (it’s delicious; recipe below). Check the twist tie to check my mistake, and find out that the kale wasn’t actually organic, and that I was overcharged. »

Ingredients: oil for frying garlic 1 bag kale corn - frozen, if you must, but fresh would be better green onions - chopped soy sauce Method: »
