Vindaloo against violence

I heard a great interview on Radio National yesterday with Mia Northrop, the organiser of Vindaloo against violence. This coming Wednesday (24th Feb) she wants people to get together at their local Indian restaurant (or if you don't have one then make a curry) to show support for your local Indian community. Fantastic idea and an oh so Melbourne way of dealing with a problem (and I mean that in a good way). We'll definitely be partaking but as we don't have a conveniently located restaurant nearby we'll be eating homemade curry- I just have to decide what kind to make. It doesn't have to be vindaloo, just make sure you register on the site (it takes about 5 seconds) so they know how many people are getting involved and then make sure you eat your curry. Such hardship!
Great recipes on the SBS food safari website or or have a look at the BBC website where they have a Madhur Jaffrey recipe for duck vindaloo.

What a wonderful idea! I will be travelling that week but I would have loved to have done this. I'm having Indian this weekend though so perhaps we could start it early? :)
