I managed to buy the rest of the Christmas presents yesterday, so no more stress for me (apart from the cooking planning etc.). There won't be any elaborate presents this year, just some small trinkets, and I'm not really planning to stress about anything either. Next weekend we will be travelling to Finland to spend Christmas with my mother. Before that, there will still be a hectic work week. I'm quite ready for a few days off over Christmas and happy to see family.
The rain continues today and it's chillier with heavy wind, so what could be nicer than a warming curry and curling up on the sofa.
I made a Thai style pattypan squash curry last weekend and it was very nice. I still had one pattypan squash left from late summer, early autumn, and slowly wanted to cook something with it. I added fried oat block to the curry, which is a Finnish product, like tofu but made from oats. I also used some nice red chillies, onion, garlic, coconut milk and warming spices. I also made homemade naan bread on the side.
I thought that one of the naan breads looked like a hedgehog. Don't you think so too?
I'm not going to publish the recipe here, as I've made many similar curries before. Here are some of them for inspiration.
Have a nice day!
