Re: Kedgeree and Khichari vs. Congee

Originally posted by J Michael on Aug 13, 04 - 8:20 PM Just a little more on congee, as we are a multi-cultural island, all the 4 ethnic groups and a few other groups like the Sikhs and others, have their very own unique style of the humble Congee, depending on what ingredients. It is also an introd...

Kedgeree and Khichari vs. Congee

Originally posted by MEF on Aug 13, 04 - 12:25 PM I think that both the Anglo-Indian Kedgeree and the Indian Khichari differ from the Asian Congee in a fundamental way - the latter in simply 1 unit of glutinous rice with 8 units of liquid cooked for 3/4 hr. whereas the former involve many more steps...

Description of congee reminds me of kedgeree

originally posted by llizard on Aug 13, 04 - 9:12 AM Congee sounds somewhat similar to kedgeree (and all the various spellings) that is served in India. I gather that it is used for the same purpose as congee. I absolutely love it when I'm feeling just a little under the weather. Actually, I simply ...

Re: Congee - sounds bad; tastes great

Originally posted by J Michael on Aug 13, 04 - 2:05 AM A little more on congee...it can be eaten almost any time of day and particulary easy on the tummy when one is sick or feeling under the weather. Although, when one is sick, we tend to eat it as plain as ever, that means just the rice cooked wit...

Re: Congee - sounds bad; tastes great

Originally posted by llizard on Aug 11, 04 - 6:35 PM I always thought that congee sounded like the ultimate comfort food. Strangely enough, I've never had it.... I adore comfort food, or as one of the translations for a text in my French lessons said: "I adore stodgy dishes" ---------- Hmm...

Re: Congee - sounds bad; tastes great

Originally posted by CAM on Aug 11, 04 - 1:41 PM Yes, congee is delicious -- like a rice porridge, and just the thing in the morning. I think it may be much like "chicken soup" -- good for what ails you. I first tried it when I was speaking at a conference in Thailand. I was very jetlagged...

Congee - sounds bad; tastes great

Originally posted by MEF on Aug 11, 04 - 12:26 PM When I first read about the Chinese breakfast dish called congee, my first reaction was "Who needs rice gruel?". This was before I tried it. Congee is prepared with a very small amount of rice compared to the liquid (say 1:8). It is also co...

Re: So has anyone seen any good movies?

originally posted by llizard on Aug 16, 04 - 5:53 PM We recently rented "Kill Bill, vol.2". I liked "Kill Bill, vol.1" but didn't love it. However, after seeing vol. 2, I am revising my feelings about the first one and overall give the two volumes thumbs up. Also saw "Hildal...

So has anyone seen any good movies?

Originally posted by CAM on Aug 5, 04 - 7:55 PM Good films lately anyone? I was a tiny bit disappointed in "The Bourne Supremacy" -- I love spy movies and we felt like "going to the show" one evening. But this one was a bit short on plot and narrative. There was some fairly good ...

and speaking about loud unwanted interruptions...

Originally posted by llizard on Aug 3, 04 - 10:51 AM Okay. What is it about loud? Is it really that much better if the music is so loud that everyone's heart beat is being forced to readjust to the incessant drumming? I find myself growing less and less tolerant of the noise around. We just went cam...
