Hot and sweet chicken red curry

In this blog I have posted several chicken curry recipes already and yet here’s another one *tee hee* I can imagine some visitors eyebrows raising and uttering: ‘doesn’t she have any other recipes to share?’ The answer is no, I don’t! Ha! ha! But really, that’s partially true since I rarely cook for many weeks now, and if ever I do, they’re just same o-same o – thanks to my husband who makes that possible :P

Anyway stay tune for the rest of the recipe if you’re interested. I promise you this is very easy and anyone who likes spicy will surely like this.  I shall post the recipe soon.

Is it really sour? (LAPIS' EYE Candy)

Eye Candy, is this weekend’s LaPiS’s theme. I know I know, I am a bit late posting my entry. I wanted to do it yesterday (Sunday) but I really got caught up with all the preparation for my husband’s US trip (which was today, he’s left at 6am) that it was already late when I realized that I wasn’t able to do my La.Pi.S entry. But as they say, better late than never.
So here I am with my own interpretation of the theme.

As a child, I was not really fond of sour candies. But during my teen years when I realized that I have motion sickness and was told that sucking on sour candies help alleviate the feeling of nausea, thus sucking on them I started to. And by golly it worked for me then, and is still working until now! Thus, I now eat sour candies with gusto. I guess my palate got used to it. And this is the latest sour candy that I’m addicted to.

Every week, I buy 2 little jars of this yummy sour-sweet-and spicy tamarind candy. On the photo was imported from Thailand and kind of adjusted to European taste (which isn’t too sour and hot) I kind of like more what I usually buy in Thailand (when I was living there) which was really sour (I’m salivating just recalling the taste *lol* ) and pretty hot!! Each tamarind ball would be covered with chili flakes unlike this imported ones.

But better than not tasting my favorite tamarind candies, right?
