After eating at Chai Pani in Asheville the other day, I now find myself smitten with East Indian food. Today I purchased three different East Indian condiments to try cooking something similar at home. At Chai Pani I had red chicken curry and Gary had Sloppy Kai (Keeme Pav) a lamb hash burger with a side of shoestring masala fries. Both dishes were wonderful. The red curry has heat which comes on slow. They serve it with a yoghurt cucumber sauce on the side which will calm the heat on the palate if need be. We both had a lime rickey to drink, a combination of raspberry, lime and soda water. We happened to go to Chai Pani because my friend Amy mentioned it was her favorite restaurant in Asheville. I've dubbed Asheville a little San Francisco complete with steep streets, lots of shops and restaurants, and trolley cars. Gary wanted to get out of town quickly; he hates cities and all the traffic. I'll have to go back without him real soon.
Just finished this mystery about strange things happening in the Applachian Blue Ridge area. Didn't know it was about that area till I started reading it. Ha. Strange happenings indeed.
Out my RV window I spotted this beautiful but strange looking dog with perfectly marked black and white feet. Apparently the dog was born blind and is also allergic to grass so the owners put socks on him when they take him for a walk. My photo isn't the greatest since the dog kept moving but I thought all four of his paws were naturally black and white till I knew about his allergy. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
