“This vegan Date Tamarind Tofu Curry has your sweet, spicy and tart bases covered and it is delicious on it’s own or with a side of rice or naan.
After reading that first line you might be thinking “…delicious on it’s own…” Whaaaaat? That tumble really did some damage as who eats curry on it’s own?
Some foods are just expected to be paired together like tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches or macaroni and cheese or hummus and pita chips or mangoes and chili powder or rice and curry – right?
I grew up eating rice and curry – and, in Sri Lanka, that rice sure was piled on high! But, things have a way of changing.
And…not all change is bad.
These days when I make a more “gravy” like curry like this Chickpea and Spinach Curry, I serve it with some rice or naan, but, when I make a thicker curry where the curry seems to embrace and latch onto whatever veggie or meat it surrounds, well, those times I grab a spoon and dive right in, or, serve that dry-curry on a bed of greens like I did with this Potato and Salmon Dry Curry.
With this Date Tamarind Tofu Curry, my daughter and I grabbed spoons and dove right in!
If you happen to be a fan of the Vampire Diaries, then, you will understand when I say that that Date Tamarind Paste I shared on here recently with some coconut milk went together like Bonnie and Enzo! If you are not – well, then I’ll say that this combo was simply dreamy …a little sweet, a little tart, a little spicy, a little creamy, and a whole lotta yum!
Getting back to The Vampire Diaries, my daughter got me hooked on that show and I cannot believe it has only 2 more episodes to go before it is done! As in series finale! Seeing they use to film kinda down the road from us, my daughter and I are going to join in the finale festivities on the square in downtown Covington, Georgia in a few days. But, change…it must happen…
And, speaking of change…
I have a little something to share with y’all – a whole 16 days before it actually happens…
When I started my blog in 2013, it was to be just for fun.
It was to be an online journal of sorts – with run recaps and recipes thrown in.
But…things changed…and, not all change is bad. In fact…some change can be jolly good!
This little space has morphed into a mostly recipe site these days, and, a big source of my income!
So…after much deliberating…
I will be changing my blog name and social handles from Runnin Srilankan (which so many have trouble spelling and finding) to Savory Spin, come March 16th (hence the teaser in my logo above).
The look and feel will remain mostly the same with a few color modifications…but, I figured I’d give y’all a heads up so when y’all landed on here after the 16th and saw “Savory Spin,” on the header, y’all didn’t think y’all had taken a wrong turn on the world wide interwebs!
Now, getting back to food…what’s one of your favorite food combinations?
And…are there any favorite childhood combos that you enjoy eating in a totally different way now?
