Christmas Dinner

An inspiration from Carnival Diet’s website, here is what a traditional Catholic Indian Christmas Dinner looks like:

Tongue Curry ~that’s right, tongue from a cow is carved up and made into a delicious mouth watering curry, all I can say is don’t knock it till you try it…

Brown Basmati Rice with boiled egg and fried onions

Potato Chops: A potato concoction that is filled with mince and fried

Fuguas: a doughy bread made on feast days

Vindaloo: A red pork curry

Sorpetal: A brown pork curry in which pork pieces are mixed with liver pieces and cut into fine little bits

Dessert usually consists of Christmas sweets, and ice cream. This year we were treated to some fine rum cake, donated by a good friend.

Goodness my mouth is watering thinking about the food…….

I've had cow tongue before when i used to live in California, Mexicans also make them and believe it or not I wasn't at all disgusted by the taste. Thanks for sharing.

Tongue actually have nicer taste & texture than regular beef, IMHO, & makes a yummy ham substitute when paired wid a likkle chutney. (Broad Eddie smile, a la "Comin' to America") Merry New Year!
