FREE Suraj Westfair Madras Curry Powder – shameless pandering at its best!

What you see above is one of two packages of curry powder that were given to me. The other I’ve decimated through repeated, delightful episodes of making curry dishes. I believe this might be a brand commonly available in Canada (hence the bilingual packaging) but I’m not exactly sure. This is 400 grams, typically retailing at about $10.00 Canadian or thereabouts. At this time though, I have to clear out my pantry because I am moving.

In an attempt to encourage people to make comments/send emails I am daring you dear readers to write the most creative sob story about your need for this curry powder by Wednesday, January 16, 2008.* I will contact the winning entry for address info. Come out, come out, whereever you are! Be it Bailleul (France), Vancouver (Canada), Vienna (Austria), Bangkok (Thailand), Bangalore (India), Abington (United Kingdom), the U.S.A., or Japan! (Lovely Sitemeter‘s stats tells me that you visit from these various locales).

Also the moving motivates me to do quite a bit more eating out than normal to ensure that I get the most out of my Twin Cities culinary experience. (That and utter laziness!)
So, in the last few weeks, I’ve been to Punch Pizza, Highland Bakery and Cafe, Whitey’s Saloon, and others. Below are some pix I’ve taken recently to help me remember my Midwestern days.

Light Rail Station – ah, part of my lovely former commute!

Snow on one of the roof panels at the station.

A Minneapolis street covered with snow.

The Punch Salad, with prosciutto, pine nuts, and mixed greens with two slices of the most divine foccacia at the inimitable Punch Pizza.

The Gorgonzola Salad, with insanely good walnuts.

The Toscano Pizza (red bell peppers, sausage, basil, and I asked for 1/2 the normal serving of cheese) at Punch.

* Upon the advice of one of my friends, I moved out the timeline in the hopes of increasing the number of you who might take the bait I mean, participate!

P.S. Moving tip – Dairy Queen is very generous about letting people use their excess boxes. Just talk with one of their managers and have them set a bunch aside.

  1. That salad sounds awesome. And the pizza too, but what pizza isn’t good?

  2. This pizza is quite special because of many many things, not least of which is the fact that it’s baked at 800 Fahrenheit wood-burning oven. You’ll just have to try it!

  3. Oh PLEASE send it to Brazil!!! It’s next to IMPOSSIBLE to get my hands on curry! I need some flavor for my rice and beans, other than lime, of course! I need variation to my pantry! All I eat is popcorn! (You know this; you read my blog!) I AM SOBBING WHILE TELLING MY STORY!

  8. I wish I needed it, but I must admit that the best Madras Curry comes from the very neighborhood I live in and can be bought for US$1.99 per small sack. Thanks for the comment on my silly recipe, too.

  9. Well, I meant it. I don’t think I’ve ever made a curry with coconut milk…it’s on the to-do list :-).
