Patak's Rogan Josh Curry with Chicken & Awards

Yes, it is Patak's again. I know this is not really cooking because I just need to sautee some meat and heat them up with the cooking sauce from Patak's. I its convenient and fast so this is my to go meal when I don't really have time or energy to cook.

This time, I tried what is called "Rogan Josh". I have never tried this curry and I never heard of this before so I wanted to give it a try.

This is how it looks with chicken cubes.

I am not sure what defines Rogan Josh but on the package it says "spicy tomato and cardamon". However it was not spicy at all. I can taste spices but it was not spicy. I wish it was spicier. The taste was good. I think it was bit similar to Chicken Jalfrezi curry from Patak's. Maybe they make everything less spicy so people who can not tolerate spicy food can eat also.

If you are interested in this Patak's product, you can purchase them from Amazon.


Do you remember I talked about my parents in law finding this beautiful seashells on a beach near by during the Christmas holiday?  I have been looking for this kind of seashell ever time I go for a walk at the beach since then. The other day, I finally found one!

This one is such a great shape. There is not too much damage to it and it looks beautiful.

It might be difficult to see the size on its own so here is the picture of the seashell with my hand next to it. Isn't it pretty big?

This will be a great home and table decoration for summer. I can not wait for the summer to come!!

I think it is wonderful to live close to the nature (though I need to live close enough to the big city..) Since I grow up in Tokyo, these things such as finding a wild harp seal (this does not happens often) or finding these beautiful seashells during a walk is unbelievable experience.

Now, award time. Deepa from Hamaree Rasoi  gave me two awards! Thank you so much. Her blog is full of REAL indian cooking. They are mouth-watering. Her dishes are not like my out of jar curry. They are real and impressive. Please visit her blog for great indian recipes :-)
