Elementary School Lunch: 02/06 - naan jokes

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

Whenever we have naan with our lunch, the kids like to make naan jokes. Puns and wordplay are popular in Japan, humor-wise, especially with children, and the word naan (more specifically, nan), which translates to "what" makes this an easy target. So, while listening to my kids try to make the funniest puns, I enjoyed my heaping bowl of keema curry, salad, naan, and dessert of blueberry tofu cheesecake.

The curry comprised ground pork, garbanzo beans, onions, carrots, and green peppers. It was pretty awesome, and you should be jealous. The salad was primarily radish, but there were also some crunchy greens and cucumbers in there, and it was dressed in veggie dressing that tasted more like sesame than anything else. The dessert cup was a two-layer treat: tofu cheesecake on the bottom, and a layer of blueberry jelly on the top. It had been frozen, so it had this great, almost sorbet-like consistency to it.

Curry days are always good in my book, so I don't have much else to say here. Actually, I'm interested in learning how to make keema curry, and going by this recipe on BBC's GoodFood, it looks very easy to prepare.
