Sardius Curry

my friend-i.- and I whipped this together for another friend of ours last month. I had a little fun with it at the end. ๐Ÿ™‚ Our reward for a fun photo or two: sampling the mini portion I plated.


shrimp and steam. hot in there!

shrimp, cooking gently on low-medium heat.

shrimp added

simmer time

add a 1/3 cup plain yogurt. that is NOT sour cream. don't you worry.

LIME juice. In action.

chicken thigh, cooked separately.

chicken meets curry. not your average curry.

cute rice. isn't it? oooo fancy ๐Ÿ˜‰

what do you see in the curry? chicken, shrimp, tomatoes, onions...

curry, rice, AND baked whole wheat naan.

I'm having fun with these pics...

shapely rice. the sauce stayed right where I wanted it. good sauce.

Good friends.

AH a slice of LIME... parfait.

Be sure to serve with a slice of lime. Lime makes it particularly delicious.

a little lime hat for the rice... extra splash of color and flavor.

Sardius…now, what is that?

SARDIUS is a precious stone of a deep orange-red hue. Like this curry ๐Ÿ™‚

A brief look atย  Sardius as it is referenced in the Old Testament and how it pertains to the experience of a Christian:

This is pretty neat.

From Sardius to Jasper: God’s redeemed people have their beginning in God’s redemption(signified by Sardius) and their consummation in God’s glory of life (signified by jasper). Redeemed for glory, expression of God’s uncreated, eternal life (life that has the quality of eternity)!
