Cleaning and curry

It's getting into winter, the sun is low in the sky and you know what that means don't you? The citrus fruit is starting to ripen, the satsumas are showing a little orange, the lemons are decidedly less green, the tamarillo (otherwise known as tree tomato) are ripe ... but it's not that. It's the sun! It's shining on to the windows and showing up all the dirt and dust. Nothing for it then! We were out yesterday morning with a hose pipe and a long handled broom giving the windows a good old wash down. That's when we tried ignoring it .. but it was no good! We couldn't help noticing that the insides of the windows were in need of a little attention too.

All hungry work. What was needed was a quick curry. I swung in to action- egg curry al la me.

Recipe for egg curry
Select eggs and hard boil them. Chop an onion, some garlic, green chilli and tomato. Put all of them in a blender and blend till they form a paste. Heat some oil in a pan. Add curry leaves (optional), mustard and cummin seeds. They will splutter a little. Add the paste from the blender and fry till golden brown. Add water, salt, sugar bring to the boil and add the eggs. You must, of course, take the shells off the eggs. You could score the eggs lightly with a knife to help the curry juices infuse into their hearts .. but that's an optional sophistication. Add a handful of fresh coriander leaves. Delicious! We ate our curry with rice but it's equally good with chapatti.

We ate our lunch while admiring the view over the park through the clean glass of the windows. All in all a pretty successful morning!

Same here, with the windows, although it's the spring effect rather than the autumn. I really must get around to cleaning them... the egg curry sounds delish!

Yes ... the curry was enough to inspire a bit of a shower clean up later in the afternoon.

You inspired me yesterday--I took out all my screens and hosed them down and washed the windows. I think today I'll just enjoy the view.
