Curry Night

#1
I went to a pusser's curry night last night, and very fine it was too.

There were the usual accompaniements - chopped cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, boiled eggs, but sadly no coconut.

What do you call these things collectively? The PO Stoker says sambols? I asked him why and he said 'cuz they do'.

Can anyone offer a more sensible explanation to this or a better name?

Are you sure one of the other diners hadn't just boffed up in the bowl while you weren't looking?! 8O :wink:

Eeeww no, they were rather sweet, it was the RN Boxers association weekend.

I am not surprised to report that they were all well behaved and gentlemanly.

Sambols
Sambols are the appetizers of a Sri Lankan meal. Very much like the Thai, Sri Lankans also do not have courses in a meal. Rather, the appetizers are enjoyed as part of the main meal. This is a very simple mixture of onion, green chilli, salt, lime and maldive fish often folded into thinly sliced vegetable such as bitter gourd, or fish such as salted sprats.

See rosy we can be helpful, although I think the PO Stokers answer is more than reasonable

Well it was certainly politer than a CMEM's answer.

(Much the same with a slack handful of profanities & drips about the watchbill).

An association just for matelots who wear boxers... how sad... :lol: Did you both have to wear shiny shorts, go bare chested and wear padded gloves? :twisted:
