Graham heating up a chicken curry which along with a can of ‘Old Speckled Hen’ went down very nicely during a well earned rest on the way to Pen-y-Pass after achieving the summit of Snowdon.

    CHA!!!!! No better break than chicken curry and a great beer!!! Mmmmmmmm lol. Although I don’t know what a curry is. It sounds very good lol. Well done too you as well Graham!;o)

  • Thanks very much Stephfine

    A curry is a generic name for spicy dish usually originating from the Asia-Pacific region. They range from dishes like a Korma or masala, which is very lightly spiced, to a Vindaloo or Phaal which are extremely highly spiced and ‘hot’ curries.

    This was a chicken dopiaza, which has a lot of onions in it and is a medium curry.

    They are now a major part of British cuisine and a pint and a ruby (cockney rhyming slang : Ruby Murray = Curry) is a lot of people idea of a good night out lol

    It certainly tasted good after the hard days walking :o)

    This is a great picture Mark, it makes you want to rush out to the nearest takeaway. John.

  • Thanks John

    For a ‘ready meal’ it was very nice. I prefer a madras or vindaloo but I enjoyed the dopiaza greatly.

    The wall you can see is an old mine building, now little more than a shell.

    Sitting next to the waterfalls between the lakes, surrounded by mountains & having a drink and a meal was a great way to spend forty minutes of my life.
