Yup. Now I fancy a curry.

Tanya: Make this one, and see what you think!

Cappy: Replace with aubergine, as mentioned in the little preamble. Or if you don't like that either (I don't much), try adding a different colour pepper. Red would be nice, but perhaps green would add an appropriate little counterpoint to the sweetness of the yellow.

Damn you. I too have a huge craving for a curry suddenly. And it's got chickpeas...a definate YES for me (I love me some chickpeas!).

yeah!!! I am making the prawn dish tonight, it got bumped back after my hubby spotted Cynnie's Cuban Arroz con Pollo recipe sitting next to the prawn printout. More imperial culinary terms I see... Aubergine= eggplant for the Americans out there. This time I guessed the right answer, and used google for verification. I like curry, too. Don't know if the hubby will go for it, but who cares.

I am going to take you up on that. I love courgettes. And aubergines. Hmmm. I wonder... should I use both veggies then?

We don't use the work courgettes much here in Canada (like at all)....I guess they are what we call zuchinni or summer squash over here. Courgettes sounds so much more sophisticated......

Karen: Chickpeas are great, aren't they?

Milla: Prego. Hai provato la ricetta? Se si, come e' andata?

Camie: Hope you tried Red's prawn dish; it's one of my favourites, I must say. I hadn't though about adding US conversions until I saw your comment on Red's, so I figured I'd add them in when I do mine!

Tanya: Both veggies?! Oh my god, that's ... insane! You never know what might happen. Did ya do it, didja, didja?

_z.: I'm good at making a few dishes that I've practised over and over. Beyond that, not so great. I get flustered too easily when I have to do more than three things at once! I've only eaten a proper paella once, and it was before I really got into prawns and peeling the shells off them, so I'm sure I'll appreciate it a whole lot more next time I have it.

Mr A: Zucchini, yes, as you hopefully saw when you checked out the recipe. Courgette sounds quite cultured, though, doesn't it?

E' andata BENISSIMO!! Anche per me che non so cucinare, I mean in general, I can't really cook, questa ricetta e' facile e non costa una cicca! I can tell you it will go down well even with my family in Italy...they will be so surprised at my culinary skills that they will fall off their chairs while holding their forks.

Excellent! E' proprio facile, eh? I can cook some stuff, but I have five or six dishes that I do really well (if I do say so myself!), and this is one of them.
