Hot food can be really cool.

A little disappointment...

By now we have very high expectations on the Rafi curries since they've all been absolutely delicious so far. I guess that's why this friday dinner was a bit of a disappointment.

This curry called Moghlai Masala cooked the day before smelled yummy, but it said that cream should be added when served, and so we did. We also added almonds (should have been nuts, but we didn't have any) and saffron. Maybe this kind of curry is just not our favourite, but it just tasted boring. It wasn't supposed to be hot, but we expected it to at least have a lot of mild spices in it. It really didn't. Maybe we added to much cream, but without the cream it would have been very dry and very much just chicken. We won't be ordering this one again. Though, the leftovers will make a perfect mid-week dinner I'm sure, but as a rewarding Friday dinner after a busy week at work it just didn't do it for us.

Honestly? Moghlai cuisine CAN be "boring" to those with a hot n' mighty streak.
South Indian food might be more suitable...

I don't know, maybe we just did something wrong. We usually like mild curries also, like Korma for an example. I did eat some of the leftovers from this Moghlai some days ago, and I didn't add any cream to it. Instead I had some sweet chili sauce with my rice and just ate the chicken with that. That was much better. Maybe we had too much cream the first time? We'll try with less cream but still cream next time I think.
