The Moments that Matter || #DashOutSunday

in ReggaeJAHM10 days ago


It's Easter Sunday! That means spending some quality time with family. Or going wild and crazy in the downtown area according to the government and their irrational curfews. But let's keep that negativity aside. It was also my aunt's/godmother's birthday today, so she invited us over along with a small group of people. Of course as with any family gathering in the "Caribbean" food was a number one priority.

The focus today was on Indian food. Rotis to be exact. And as a an extra we also had "Saoto" which is an Indonesian chicken soup similar to Soto Ayam, and coincidentally my favorite dish. :)


There were about 20 people but we probably had food for 50. Go figure. :)


These are the rotis, which are made with dough and rolled out, while filled with a potato mash mixture.


And then there's the potatoes and "kouseband" (long beans). Cumin is very important as an ingredient in this one.


Fried boiled eggs in curry sauce. This is delicious, trust me. It also brings me back to my early school days when sandwiches with these sliced on them were one of my favorite things to buy as a snack in the canteen.


And then last but certainly not least the masala chicken. Usually there'd be curry duck as well, but thanks to inflation that's become a bit more of a delicacy nowadays.


Add all of that together and my first portion of the day was ready. Of course there was much more after that, but I decided to not take anymore pictures and just enjoy the moments. Because in the end, the moments matter. :)


This was part of the Dash Out Sunday culture in the ReggaeJAHM Community. Special shoutout to @dmilliz for starting the trend in the community.

I feel you on the “not taking anymore pictures” . It’s been years since I had roti ,India food here is nan and curry. Fried boil 🥚 I got to try that . The ducks can stay in the pond the way I see it 😂

Haha, the curry ducks are more of a two person type dish now, not for an entire group of guests. Unless Hive goes to $100 somehow.

Naan bread is pretty much a fat roti the way I see it. But traditional Indian food definitely has more curry and other fluid dishes.

The eggs are boiled and peeled first. Then fried to get a rough baked exterior and then the curry sauce gets added for flavor. I often make it in tomato sauce as well.


Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

These pictures make my mouth water bro. It's so sad I can't teleport to where all this great food is.

Haha, from my point of view you guys have lots of great food over there as well. :) Grass always looks greener on the other side.

I’ll continue eating the “grass” over here until we are in a position to share. Lol. Cheers bro.

Lol, wouldn't mind some "grass"...... -fed A1 Wagyu steaks. xD

Looks like you all had a good time together. Family and food and the time to enjoy both is priceless.
