You may remember me blithering about this movie the other week.......we inflicted it upon Cousin Phil the other night, and he passed out with joy!
I love this movie!
If you are remotely PC, in any way, do not watch it!
It's a bit of a Russ Meyer meets Quentin Tarantino with a punch in the head from Robert Rodrigues kind of violent lesbian drug pimping church fest.
You have been warned!
These girls are NZ icons, and deservedly so.
They're yodelling queer twins from a farm, and they're fabulous!
Freakin' fab story, freakin' fab acting by Marianne!
And last night we watched this!
Wonderful music, and gorgeous to look at.
The plot got a little bit obtuse, but we did enjoy it.
We don't watch nearly enough movies, probably because we are glued to Antiques Roadshow so much!
OMG, I stupidly didn't mention yesterday that my safety pants were courtesy of darling Vix !!!
And now, the recipe for
(to serve 4-6, or in our case,3.)
4 fresh red chillies
4 garlic cloves
2 stalks lemongrass, white part only, sliced thin (I just use 2 teaspoons lemongrass froma jar if I don't have any fresh or in the freezer)
2 inches ginger or galangal, peeled and chopped
1 red onion, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons chopped coriander root/stalk or ground coriander (coriander =cilantro)
Mix in food processor or blender, or pound in a mortar/pestle
4 tablespoons oil (I use bran or peanut)
5 baby corn cobs, split lengthwise
A pepper (aka capsicum), any colour, sliced
Handful green beans, topped/tailed/ halved
Handful fresh button mushrooms, halved (I prefer quartered)
A small head of broccoli, cut into florets
OR ANY VEGES YOU HAPPEN TO HAVE! (the point of jungle curry is that you make do with whatever is at hand; last time I used carrot and cabbage instead of broccoli and pepper)
1 block firm tofu, cut into chunks
1 1/2 vege stock
1 tablesppons dark soy sauce
4 kaffir lime leaves, sliced thin
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped fresh coraiander (aka cilantro)
3-4 red chillies, sliced
Cooked rice or noodles!
Heat oil in wok, add curry paste, cook until fragrant.
Add veges, coat with curry paste, cook a little
Add stock, soy sauce, lime leaves, sugar
Cook until veges are tender.
Remember, if it doesn't burn twice, it wasn't as nice!!
