Mobil Curries for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a big bowl left in the fridge for midniters with a cold beer. And yes, the Bhandaris curries were the best!

Not really had anything to do with them since '86 and almost totally lost touch apart from a couple of ex BPTC guys who used to work in the Dyce office.
I think I was lucky, never on a bad feeder, though inevitably some were better than others. "Her indoors" can still turn out a mean cheese beano, if required!!
Hello Geoff, just looking thro old thread and came across one you sent I see you where on the Sulair I joined her in jan 83 as cook/caterer best ship ever a good laugh loved her sorry to leave

I remember clearly catching a shark one trip (1972?)and then having a fantastic Bhandaris curry. Until i found out everything went into the curry ,eyeballs and all.Then one afternoon I went into the Indian engine room christian boys cabin to fix his lights. On his day bed was plates loaded with soup ,main course and a sweet and he was sat cross legged on the floor .having his Bhandaris meal. Joe -I said what is this here -to which he replied ,i am entitled to that Battywaller (indian for magician so i believe which is how they adddressed Electricians) . Then proceeded to throw it all overboard .Happy yet mysterious days to me a pit yacker in the early 70s. I can honestly say that I never ever had a poor meal on board BP ships . Best C/O was definetely Mike Butler a Scottish Liverpudlian on the Gunner 1970. Happy happy days . I am amazed how long this thread has lasted .

Was she disappointed when, previously all excited, she went in a branch to purchase some expected comestibles and found there were none!, well, no stotty cakes or other North East goodies. Just tripe butties or black pudding barm cakes or somesuch Lancastrian fare, possibly? Back to the point, if I ever had one, I may try it, I suppose that dahl will be a passable facsimile to pease pudding and would go well with boiled ham?
As to a giant peach, I would not like to take it away from James though, even to make any sort of dahl out of, even Roald.
Keith.
PS What a rotting spel cheker this is, I have had to teach it Greggs, Gosforth, stotty, butties, barm and even dahl, Roald or otherwise.
Hello sandancer ,yes the Dahl was the nearest to pease pudding i have ever come across at sea,but could never get a cook to do it for me.
Down here in Retford they hate pease pudding -heathens they are -dripping bread was a delicacy down here .
Cheers pal .Hopefully you are also a black cat ? If not -still happy new year to you and family.

ala mode

remember that beef or MUTTON (Sprung LAMB) sKeward with carrots. This was after a trip UK Aruba and west africa, back to Aruba and return to west africa, and then via the cape to Shattle Arab Abadan Port, backloading for the NW Europe. We all had wooly faces like the sheep we had eaten (Mutton or as the aussies called it 'Hogget') Glad to hit the TYne for Drydock and be able to buy fish and chips.

#596. The beef shot with carrots was called "Beef a la mode". Hogget is the meat from a sheep between one and two years old.

No, but have heard the Carron Fish Bar ones are very nice.
It was the 1980s and we stayed in the Hotel on the harbour front at Stonehaven. They served delicious Cullen Skink, which was very welcome after a cold day working out at sea.
Regards, Mike
