When we think of Valentine’s Day we tend to think of chocolate, love, and presents, yet most of us don’t know that Valentine’s Day has its roots in an ancient Roman fertility festival called Lupercalia. It was a festival celebrating early spring, fertility, the ancestors, and love. The ancient priests would sacrifice a goat and then make their way around the perimeter of the city of Rome, lightly tapping women on the way with strips of the blood-soaked goat’s skin.

A mix of spices, sauces and meals: Everything you need to know before trying curry

What is actually curry? Is it a sauce? A dish? Or maybe a mix of spices? Well, it’s all of them. Every region has its own definition or version: In India, it is arguably the essence of its gastronomy and joy. Basically, a stew made of vegetables, meat or fish cooked with a creamy sauce and paired with rice. In Europe, it is more considered a combination of various spices used to condiment or season their meals. And finally, in Southeast Asia, curry is a dish that uses coconut milk and is eaten on top of rice, although it can include fish, meat and poultry.

The enjoyment of curry in Indian culture has given it worldwide popularity and found its way into the tables of families all around. For this reason, including it on your menu is a must for food enthusiasts.

Trying some exotic rice recipes from the far East

Considering rice is so accessible and adaptable into any meal, there is no question why this grain lives rent-free in everyone’s hearts. Regardless of where you are from, you must be familiar with a rice recipe and it’s maybe your own variation from a recipe known in your region. What I am trying to say is, there is no established guaranteed rice recipe, only the decades old method of cooking the grain (but even that may change from person to person, cue: boiling the rice in broth instead of water).

Being a universal ingredient, rice can be found in thousands of recipes around the world. Today, I’ll bring you not one, not two but three ways to cook your rice in the most exotic and delightful ways.
