The crab of the other night was an afterthought and was not meant to be eaten alone. I saw this recipe and was inspired. I never combine Indian flavors with beef because. Well, you know.

And I say inspired because I didn't follow the recipe to the letter. First of all, when I am working with herbs and spices with which I am familiar? Yeah, there was no measuring involved. Also the recipe calls for curry powder. Years ago I looked at the ingredient listing on a bottle in the store -- red pepper, coriander, fenugreek, and turmeric -- and realized that I already own most of the individual components. Except the fenugreek. For that, I always substitute another "f" that sometimes appears in Indian recipes -- fennel. And since it was supposed to be Indian spices, I threw in some cardamom as well.

And has become the custom around here, everyone has their spot to watch the preparation of meals.

But the finished meal was just for me. And I have to say that it was mighty tasty.
