I know. It’s been a while. I got busy, and all that boring stuff. But now I’m back, and happier than ever to be cooking my way around the world.

I love Pinterest. I was a late adopter, but now it is definitely a giant time-suck: a giant, day-dreaming that I can achieve craftier and cuter things, time-suck. My house does look way cuter for less, though.

I found galangal! Although, I am still hunting for the fresh stuff.

I had to click on the pin that said “14 spicy recipes from around the world.” It had all of the things I love in it: food, spice, and “the world.” I’m glad I did, because I not only stumbled across Malaysian Devil’s curry, but I also have a lot of future recipes.

Soaking the dry red peppers. This does not frighten me at all.

I love spicy foods. I also have a fondness for Malaysian food. My boyfriend and I frequented a Malaysian restaurant in Las Vegas when we wanted something tasty, savory, hearty, and not very expensive (pretty much sums up all of law school). I am always up for the challenge of trying something with a bit of kick to it. I was not at all scared by the instruction of 20-30 dried red chiles for this recipe.

The paste.

I have to say… it might have been the peppers I used (although, these were the same peppers I used when I famously burned my friend Ashley from the inside), but this was not nearly as spicy as I anticipated. I’ll probably add a few more peppers next time.

The finished product.

However, even though I could have gone spicier, I definitely still loved it. Once again, my boyfriend was licking the sauce from his fingers. Devil’s curry is not to be missed. And for those of you who are afraid of spice: don’t worry, it’s not so bad!

I always taste test everything. Because, you know, it might be poison.
