    Egg Curry

    Tonight I finally made the one meal my mum always talked about when recounting her childhood: egg curry. A hearty and economical dish, this was something my Burmese grandmother would make to feed a large family with little money to spare. This recipe for burmese egg curry is another one adapted from the wonderful Burma - Rivers of Flavor book. 

    The eggs are first hard-boiled, then fried in peanut oil and a little turmeric for a couple of minutes, until they blister and turn golden. Slice the eggs in half lengthwise after removing from the pan. I used 7 eggs.

    Drain some of the oil. Fry a handful of minced shallots and 3 tsp grated garlic for a minute or two on medium heat, then add 3-4 finely diced tomatoes. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often. 

    Turn up the heat, add 3 tsp of fish sauce, half a tsp salt, and a couple tsp red chile powder. Throw in some green chiles, seeded and sliced lengthwise, and add the eggs face-down in the pan. After 3-4 minutes it will begin to sizzle. Serve over rice and enjoy!

    Zdzisław Beksiński

    "A famous Polish painter  specializing in the field of utopian art, Beksiński executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a ‘Baroque’ or a ‘Gothic’ manner. His creations are mainly two periods, the first period of the works are generally considered to contain expressionistic color, with a strong style of “utopian realism” architecture surreal, like a doomsday scenario worries. The second period more abstract style, with the main features of formalism.”

    Beksiński was murdered in 2005.

    "Let’s say that I am, through my actions, doomed, and that I will go to hell. Even if I am going to hell, that still doesn’t mean the Earth is 6,000 years old. The facts just don’t reconcile.”

    I sure wouldn’t cross him.

    "I’ve had to run from war twice. Both times I left good jobs behind, and it was very painful. The second time was the worst. I thought I’d escaped a hopeless situation, and then it happened again. You can feel when war is coming to your town. Traffic picks up. People’s faces begin to look very worried. Nobody cares for each other. If someone talks to you, you can tell that they want the conversation to end as soon as possible. The second time I had to run, I thought: ‘This time I have to get as far away as possible.’ So I came all the way to Kinshasa."
    "Were you worried the war would reach Kinshasa?"
    "No. Because the wars have all been about Kinshasa. So if the war reaches Kinshasa, the war is over."

    Because there will be new…
