The Curry Special
Now I have to be honest I never intended on it ending this way but having got halfway through the holiday it dawned on me that there were too many different currys on the various menus for me to ignore. It just felt that leaving without trying as many as I could muster would just seem rude. So in 14 nights I managed 14 different curries which, when added to the Chicken Byriani (15) at Joe's River Cove one lunch time, the numerous Chicken Tikka Rolls for lunch in the beach shacks and the one curry breakfast in the Haathi Mahal I reckon it's not a bad effort for a first timer.
Given that we were up and out birdwatching by 7.30am several mornings I reckon I did well (or got lucky). We were very careful with hand sanitising and, as it happened, neither of us suffered with deli belli once.
My curry persuit was slightly resticted because I don't like seafood, turn my nose up at the veggie options and am not so keen on creamy (Korma style) curries.
A quick resume of what and where: - look them up and you'll see how nice they sound - you'll not find many of them on the takeaway menu but I bet you start to reach for that phone !!!
Chicken Kolhapuri - Jazz Inn
Chicken Vindaloo - Goan Village
Chicken Xacuti - Betty's Place

Nothing to call between all 14 and tbh we're going to have to go for 3 weeks now so that I can have them all again and expand to the ones I didn't fit it (speaking of which, fitting into my trousers for work was another major achievement - lol)
Birdwatching report will follow in a few days but need to focus on finding us a good deal for 2014 now.
