Today, I am posting a traditional favorite, curry conchs and dumpling. But first I must say: A pleasant good day to everyone. Long time no see. It’s been a while but, life sometimes get in the way and you have to pause for a cause. So what was my cause? I have recently started working after a long time of study and it took me a while to settle in the job and get acquainted with my new surroundings. Other than that I have had some other hiccups along the way …. first my camera died, but that was my fault really (note to self: salt water and camera do not mix lol) and now some of my laptop keys aren’t working but I can still manage.
A Delicious Curry Conchs and Dumpling
Now that I have settled somewhat it’s time to get back to posting. Yeah (exclamation mark) To start off, I bring to you today curry conchs and dumpling. This is a dish made with the river conch that is really wholesome and downright tasty. To differentiate between the river conch and the sea conch we usually call the sea conch Lambie. And that one tastes just as delicious. Doh worry ah have ah lil Lambie recipe to do too for allyuh (exclamation mark)
The texture of the conch is similar to chicken gizzard when pressure cooked and when curried, you could almost say that you’re eating curried gizzard. This combination of the curried conch with the cow tongue dumplings makes a wonderful and filling feast trini style. I sure enjoyed this and remembered to take down the recipe to share with you all. So as my first recipe after long hiatus, here’s curry conchs and dumpling. Enjoy 🙂
