[Comments] (3) Cooking Curry: Well, I made the Indian shrimp curry. It was ok, but not wonderful. Somehow the flavor lacked something, and I can't quite put my finger on what. One possibility may be that I didn't have curry leaves to fry in ghee. (I used butter.) Another is that I used the Schilling curry powder from the supermarket. There is an Indian spice store somewhere in town, and I'm going to go there to see if I can get better curry powder. I don't really know the difference, but it's got to be more authentic than the prepackaged Schilling stuff, right?

I served it with my favorite salad, a California salad of orange, grapefruit, avocado, red onion, and bibb lettuce with poppyseed dressing. Rachel liked it this time! I am relieved, after years and years and years of having my husbands and children refuse to eat this salad. (This salad is also good with Italian dressing.)

I have always like your salad (minus the red onions)

This sounds a lot like a salad I had at work on Friday (made especially for some vegan guests). It had grapefruit, avocado, red onions and lettuce (maybe bibb lettuce, I don't know what that is, but yummy lettuce). And a raspberry vinagrette made with MacNut Oil. I didn't eat the grapefruit or the red onion. I didn't even eat the vegan wrap I also got (someone was handing out leftovers). Friday was a very busy day.

PS: I don't understand the point of ghee.
