What's for dinner?

Since we don't have a 'FOOD' forum (maybe with good reason, I dunno) I thought I'd just share this with you this evening. I have been struggling to bbq salmon on the grille but really nailed it tonight. I use a cast iron fry pan to cook in. Came out very tasty.

Perhaps this is the beginning of the food photo thread. ;)
If it is, it had better be renamed :): this is my lunch, from 4 years ago.

... Banana... The big "petals" are actually bracts, the actual flowers are the small pale things.

At a time known to the judgment of others, that flower head is cut off. The flowers are removed from between the bracts, painstakingly cleaned (sorry, I was asleep!) and made with lentils into a kind of daal.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Banana-Flower Curry!

The remaining bananas are left to grow more and ripen, then they are cut. After some more ripening, we eat them. Luckily we seldom have more than one tree giving fruit, or else we can't finish them.

I say tree, I forget what, botanically, it is, but it isn't really a tree. After taking the fruit, the whole lot gets cut down, and another one shoots up. The main stem of the plant can also be cut into pieces and cooked. And, of course, its leaves are the traditional dinner plates of the area.

Well, I have already learned multiple things today and it is early in the day for me.

I looked it up - the banana is a berry. Who knew? 🤔

I also had to look up daal. But I already did know a little about curry which I love to eat, though I am sure what we can get around here is nothing like what you have available or make. I always look for Indian restaurants when in a city (generally for work so probably not much in the future), the food is always so interesting in both appearance and taste.
