Coriander and Coconut Chutney

This is a great side dish for any Indian curry, but especially a meat dish with a tomato based sauce.

On this particular occasion, however, it was put to use rather like mayonnaise, working alongside nothing more fancy than cooked prawns.

Peel, dunk, devour. Great finger food for a night in front of the TV.

It’s just a pity that the TV happened to be showing the Swedish national heat of the horror that is the Eurovision Song Contest.

if they hadn’t have worked so darned well with this chutney, I swear I’d have stuck prawns in my ears until the caterwauling muppets on the screen were silenced.

Not wanting to waste tasty crustaceans, I opted for plan B – Green Day’s “Dookie“on my phone.

It was wonderfully bizarre – there on the screen was some demi-operatic cherub, all big bouffant and evening gown being assaulted by a wind machine, giving it 110% on the dramatic gestures scale to, as far as I was concerned, the lucid strains of “Basket Case”.

Another prawn, dear…?

      Thanks. Glad you liked it.

      Avoid all contact with Eurovision.

      Treat it like an advancing Zombie horde, i.e. only go anywhere near it if you have a high powered rifle shooting silver bullets dipped in holy water.

      Trust me, your ears will love you for it… 🙂
