Now, this is really weird for me. I have suddenly, in the last week, been adding curry powder to my food.
Why is it weird? Let’s start with Indian food overload in my first 6 months in New York. Apparently, at that time, Indian food was all the rage (there was this strip of Indian restaurants on E. 6th St., and all of my friends wanted to go to dinner there) I OD’d on Indian food (much as I did on Polish food on 2nd Ave. about a year later, for the same reason) I just got so I didn’t want to know anything about India (I mean, I did come here 20 years after the 60’s, and, thankfully, I had gotten over Indian-stuff, madras, and paisley mania)
I have studiously avoided anything Indian (in fact, once, when someone said a necklace I had created looked Indian-inspired, I gave it away within 24 hours– if I hadn’t been able to find someone I knew who might like it, I was prepared to give it to a homeless person!)
I do like Thai curry, but that is a whole ‘nother animal.
So, what is up with this sudden taste and desire to add it to my food? I must research the ingredients in curry powder. Meanwhile, curry goes in everything.
