TANGY CURRY with Vonnie Hughes

Now don't wrinkle your nose if you've never tried curry and have convinced yourself it's too spicy. My friend, multi published author, Vonnie Hughes is here to change your mind. The kitchen is all yours, Vonnie! This a tried and true very successful recipe for about 8 people. Enjoy! It is very tasty and is virtually mistake-proof.

  TANGY CURRY

  • 2½ lbs of cubed cheap steak (it will be simmered for ages so cheap steak is fine)


  • 2 finely chopped onions
  • 1 chopped apple
  • 2 chopped carrots
  •  2 tablespoons of ordinary flour
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • 2 tbsp. golden syrup (light treacle)(corn syrup) 
  • 1 dessertspoon mild curry powder 
  • 1 medium tin tomato soup 
  • 1 small tin pineapple pieces with juice 


 Place the steak in a large pot.

Add the onions, apple and carrots. In a bowl mix the flour, lemon juice, golden syrup, curry powder and a little of the pineapple juice. Stir this flavored thickening and add to the meat in the pot. Add the tomato soup and pineapple pieces. Cook on a very low heat for two hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. (A little extra liquid may be needed. Water is fine). Best served with rice and a tossed green salad.



 Now while you have that 2 hour wait, how about a step back in time with an intro to my latest Regency novel?
"We've all heard about convenient marriages. But Verity and Matthew's marriage is anything but convenient. It's downright frustrating and pulsating and invigorating..."

Vonnie Hughes is a multi-published author in both Regency books and contemporary suspense. She loves the intricacies of the social rules of the Regency period and the far-ranging consequences of the Napoleonic Code. And with suspense she has free rein to explore forensic matters and the strong convolutions of the human mind. Like many writers, some days she hates the whole process, but somehow she just cannot let it go. Vonnie was born in New Zealand, but she and her husband now live happily in Australia. If you visit Hamilton Gardens in New Zealand be sure to stroll through the Japanese Garden. These is a bronze plaque engraved with a haiku describing the peacefulness of that environment. The poem was written by Vonnie.
