on fire

A couple of months back, I tried Mascot's curry paste. That particular time the spice level was medium.

This time, I tried "very spicy".

I sauteed some onion, added the water and mixed in the paste.

In another pan, I sauteed carrots, zucchini, red bell pepper, eringi. After the zucchini was cooked through, I added a rinsed can of corn and cooked just to heat through.

The spiciness of this curry is HOT! The heat starts at the back of your throat, working its way to your lips, making your nose run.

Even Satoshi noticed the difference in the spice level.

While this made for a great dinner on the nippy evenings we've been having, I think this level is too hot, and will probably go back to "medium" (though Satoshi says he likes the very spicy over the medium).

Sounds yummy! I like spicy hot too, but I think working with medium, then adding spice to your taste might work out better.

I usually just get/order hot for Japanese curry cause I know I can handle it but this sounds a bit different... The corn sounds like a great idea!

Yum, that looks delicious!

K and S said...

Either that or make two different batches Rick :)

This curry is more Indian than Japanese Dennis, Satoshi loves corn in it :)

Thanks Jalna :)

Take care everyone!

Looks ono! Could you mix some medium paste with some spicy paste to get a good heat level in between the two?

K and S said...

Thanks Laura, hope you are well :)

I may just do that Jenster :)

Take care you two.

It looks delicious--although I am wimpy and I would need the medium one! ;-)

I have to be careful these days in how much spicy heat in our food. Feel the burn....you got that right. But I ain't talking about the mouth!

K and S said...

Rowena, I totally understand :)

Take care.
