Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. Life got busy there for a bit, and then when it slowed down, we lost our internet for a week.
A few weeks ago, I posted about trying a chicken korma recipe that was a disappointment. My friend, Bobbie, emailed me with two chicken korma recipes that she had found online. One recipe looked especially interesting and the most like what I've gotten at Indian restaurants when I order it. Last week, I bought the ingredients to make it.
Last night, while I was cooking this Chicken Korma II dish, I had an accident. I was getting ready to puree the cashews and yogurt, but my immersible blender attachment didn't seem to be working right. Without thinking, I went to fiddle with the attachment without unplugging it. The whole thing spun in my other hand, and somehow I pushed the power button. Zwing! The next thing I knew, my left hand was covered in blood oozing from my index finger.
I'll spare you all the details, but I went to the emergency room to get stitches. I was lucky that the cut wasn't bigger. I only needed four stitches, and I didn't cut any tendons/ligaments/bones. It's doing pretty well today. I have a HUGE pile of dishes that I must tackle with some rubber gloves once I take this big bandage off later this evening.
Back to the korma... Before going to the hospital, I showed Jim what to do to finish the korma. He finished it while I was at the emergency. (My terrific friend, Sally, came and stayed with me and brought me home so that Jim could bring the boys home.) I finally got to have some late last night, and it was wonderful! I loved it! I did add some golden raisins and sliced almonds at the end, which the recipe didn't call for, but it made it even better. This one is definitely a keeper!
Come back again tomorrow. I have a bunch of cake decorating pictures to show you from the past few weeks. Thanks for stopping by!
