Mackerel & Potatoes in Kerala Fish Masala
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
with W and DJ
Tonight’s dish was made with a packaged curry paste. Despite the Indian appellation – Kerala being a state on the southwestern tip of India – the product is of Sri Lankan manufacture Sri Lanka is located nearby off the southeastern tip. The curry turned out much better than previous attempts with other products (see most recently 3.348 Mackerel & Steak Fries in Whitened Red Curry); it was still hot but not deadly, perhaps because it was meant to be more Indian than Sri Lankan. By the way, I don’t know why I keep making these Sri Lankan curries with mackerel and potatoes.
