MAKES HOT RELISH
CURRY ADDS TO PIQUANCY OF
Chicken and Veal Are . Particularly
Adapted for This Form of Sea
soning Curried Eggs for
Luncheon or Sunday Tea.
Curry, the Cinghalese sauce or rel
ish whose making Is one of the mys
teries of the 'ori
ent, is the founda
dation, or at least
leit motif, of all
sorts of "curried
dishes, more par

means of which
the hostess or
housewife can curry favor with her
Onions, garlic, pepper, turmeric
ground cocoanut and fermented milk
are only a few of the simples which
enter into the composition of this
hot Hindoo condiment which, like
most so-called national dishes, inclu
ding our own American mincepie,
owed its original invention to some
accident, famine or emergency. It
comes in powder form.
The average table-d'hote idea of
curry is a watery chicken stew with a
litle curry-powder thrown into it at
the last moment. The real thing is
Almost any flesh food can be cur
ried to the queen's taste, but chicken
is the most popular. For this dish
procure a good-sized stewing fowl;
also. If desired, a couple of pounds of
Veal cutlet. Skin the fowl and cut
the meat in pieces. ' Slice an onion
and fry in butter, to which a table
spoonful of curry powder has been
added. Then put in the meat, pour in
some water, cover the kettle and let
simmer by the hour over a slow fire.
It may he well to reinforce the cur
ry flavor by adding another spoonful
of powder, as the boiling proceeds.
Keep it irrigated, so as not to burn
or scorch. Just before serving put on
a blanket of "thickening," made with
either flour or cornstarch.
Rice is boiled in the eastern fashion
as follows: Throw half a cupful of
rice into a large kettle two-thirds fun
of salted boiling water; leave it to
boil 20 minutes, strain through a col
ander, then steam five minutes, over
a tea kettle, until the separate ker
nels are light and dry. Rice, thus
prepared, accompanies all curries.
The curry should be placed in the
center of a large platter, with the rice
piled around it as a border. Cut nar
row stripes of sweet red Spanish pep
pers and place In crosses on the rice
as a garnish. Green peppers also can
be used to enhance the color scheme.
Serve also a dish of grated young
-cocoanut, a dish of chutney, some
Madras pickles and possibly a scoop
of guava Jelly.
Bombay duck (which is no duck at
all, but a small dried fish), is another
Hindoos tan ee hot relish, which doubt
less would be more popular with occi
dentals if it did not smell to heaven
when warmed up in the oven.
In making beef curry the round is
used, the process being the same as
with chicken, except that a not-too-
tart apple or two may be utilized for
the thickening, being stewed with the
meat after it has been boiling three
An artful luncheon or Sunday tea
dish Is made -by currying eggs. Make

ried in a way to make the most sav
