Amerindians? Of course they have a sea food culture. The Inca in Cuzco, at several thousand of feets of altitude, eated fresh fish, thanks to the couriers that carry him fish, running hundred of kilometers from the coast in a single day.
 
Anyways. The Pacific ocean is very cold in the South American coast and as such in full of fish and all forms of sea food. So we eat almost anything that swim. In any case, our most espectacular sea food is Curanto. It is similar to the Polynesian ahu. It is a food cooked in red-hot stones, underground. It contains clams, fish, crabs and many different kind of sea food, together with potatos and many vegetables, all covered up with leaves, and cooked at the steam. It is a tradition mainly of a place of Chile called Chiloe Island:

One thing Greeks, Turks or Arabs cannot claim is Chocolate which had it origins in the south American jungles. On this computer I cannot post images of chocolate treats but for me it is food from the gods. Just imagine how many different forms chocolate takes and it all comes from the coca coca pod. I use to buy the beans and then smash them up and mix it with honey. Boy, what an energy rush that is better than coffee and you do not crash.   Just think of it anywhere from chocolate covered ants to swiss chocalate. My favorite is serranos from Greece and Turkish chocolate bars with pistachios, you cannot find the latter in the USA so I have to request it from friends in Turkey, The 007 movie Gold Finger should have been named chocolate finger. If she had been covered in chocolate instead of gold paint the actress might have lived-   
can someone post of chocolate treats for me

The Turkish and Bosnian places in Chicago are pretty good.

Restaurant Sarajevo for one is good for a lot of grilled varieties of Bosnian varaints of Med. food.

Arkadas and Ala Turka are two good Turkish places.

Andie's is a good general Mediterannean place.

And Reza's is one of the best Persian places here.

for desert, I had vanilla ice cream with blended red bean.. yummy!



12/04 - My 5th years of anniversary. I had been worked in the same company for that long.

I am a big fan of Indian Cuisine, my girlfriend and I have cooked a few dishes mostly Potatoes in a tangy yogurt sauce.  I have made all sorts of curries, they are delicious, my favorites are Chicken Korma and Chicken Masala.  Tonight for dinner I made Aloo Saag (Spinach and Potatoes) one of my favorite dishes of all time.  Here is what it looked like:
Sorry for the poor quality I took the picture with my phone.

Cahaya, what is inside the dressing in first picture? I love Thai dressing specially their sweet dressings.

King John, how do you make Aloo saag?  Cook it or fry? what else do you add? it looks delicious.

It's essentially pan fried.

Take the potatoes, wash them then quarter them.  In a pan heat 4tbsp oil put in potatoes brown on all sides.  Once browned take out the potatoes and remove all oil except for 1tbsp. 

In that 1tbsp of oil fry 1tsp cumin seeds, two green chilies (I use jalapenos or seranos or a combination of the two depending on if I'm cooking for myself or for the girlfriend and myself), two dried red chilies, one onion chopped, 4 cloves garlic and 1 inch fresh ginger peeled (crushed into a paste–I use the back of my knife after I have finely diced both) until the onions are golden brown.  

At this point put the potatoes back in a cover, cooking until the potatoes are tender when poked with a sharp knife.  stir occasionally

Put in the spinach (washed and chopped) stirring well so that all is incorporated, let cook until the excess liquid is gone and the spinach has wilted.

That's pretty much how you make Aloo Saag, I like to put a few pieces of fresh chopped tomato on top as a garnish to make it look all pretty like.  This is actually one of the first things I ever cooked for my girlfriend almost two years ago.  I did that whole thing from memory so their might be a few things missing but it looks right, I can check the recipe tomorrow and edit this post if I forgot anything.

Very good. It is better if you add some chopped basil or cilantro.
