Though I like my feathery one  in different styles, maybe, a curried dish is my favorite. Have indulged in same a ‘mil and one’ times. Turned to my drumsticks and thighs as I often do. These parts are loaded with great flavors and can handle a little extra cooking compared to the white meat.

With a few chops to my skinless and bone-in drumsticks and thighs, my dark portions were ready to be immersed in:

  • curry powder
  • cumin
  • crushed all spices (pimento)
  • crushed garlic
  • Salt/black pepper to taste
  • pinch of jerk sauce
  • pinch of sugar for balance
  • splash of vinegar

Marinated and massaged drumsticks and thighs in these array of spices and ingredients. Then, brought them to room temperature and added them to a sturdy skillet with a drizzle of canola oil.

After sauteing chicken for  a few minutes:

  • onions
  • celery
  • ginger
  • fresh thyme
  • minced stock bonnet peppers

Water was added to cover chicken. This was allowed to simmer for under low to medium heat until chicken was fork tender and the right consistency in gravy was arrived at. With a few sprigs of scallion on top, my curried drumsticks and thighs were done.

Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
