My parents lived in Singapore for four years before I was born and my introduction to "curry" was made with chinese curry powder with a sharing garnish dish with compartments for chopped cucumber, fresh tomato, raw onion, cashew nuts, sultanas and pineapple. Very strange.

 

Oh yes, nuts as well.

They shouldn't be in there either.

 

Fruit & Nuts? Fine in a chocolate bar or a cereal promoted by "hard-man" Ross Kemp, but not in a curry. (Or other main course dishes either)

Nuts are fine in food. You can't beat a good Satay.

Ground into a paste is fine.

 

Actual chunks of nuts: no thanks.

 

Are they like tomatoes not being fruit for the purpose of this exercise then? :) I do like a sprinkling on my Thai sesame noodles though (which jsut so happens to be my lunch today).

Tomatoes are only a fruit as a technicality.

 

Nobody really sees them as a fruit, do they?

They're not in fruit salads, they don't do tomato jellies etc etc.

Just had a conversation with DBP about anchovies. I like them, and he quite clearly doesn't. I don't mind olives either, but he hates them........it all relates back to a bad experience he had with them in Majorca as a child...

 

My bestest pizza would be :

 

Anchovies, Olives, Cappers and peppers.

 

OMG.......!!!

Rhubarb is a vegetable.

We used to grow it in the garden when we were kids, pull a piece up, wash it and eat it with little bag of sugar, we never got poisoned

 

Same here & I'm alive a liveo. My father used to burn the stuff as it grew like weeds, but every year it was back, double the size again.

Love the stuff!
