Purposefully Hot

I need contrast in my life. Everything is supposed to be relative, but how hot does spicy get?

This is a diced beef curried stew pasta...
Auzzie thingy.

Cut ~8 cloves of garlic with the back of a knife.
Insert into pot
drizzle over the garlic some olive oil. Preferably from a virgins olives.

Open VLC, begin rock and roll. Hawaii Five O by Book him Danno is selected.

Shake that groove thing into a glass.
Groove consists of 1 teaspoon each of:
Ground Ginger
Cardamon, ground
Garam (Masala)
Turmeric, in powder form
Nutmeg, as a dried paste
Flakes of Chillies, so small they may have been made in a mortar and pestle.

Paprika, smoked nor ground.
Keen as mustard
Cajun, also nor ground.

Now the garlic should be changing colour

Toss the spices from the glass into the pot with the boiling oil and coloured garlic.

Stir thoughtfully enjoy the aromas and Enya.

500g of diced cow meat should be placed on top of the aromatic mix. Stir the meat until all its sides are seared and covered in flavor.

Add to this then a jar of pasta sauce with red wine. You could add you own wine, but I don't like to drink alone.Make certain there is enough fluid to cover the meat by adding water.

set to medium heat and stir through.

Add to this a bunch of veggies if required. All meals should have veggies.

Then moving on.

I made pasta as per the instructions on the pasta pack, this was the side dish, or the under dish as it were.

Seems the meal went down a treat, although company always makes food taste better.
