I'm going camping and plan to make vindaloo and sourdough (don't ask why, I just wanted to eat it while camping). I'm trying to find a simple idea on how to make cucumbers to go well with vindaloo and flat breads.
Was wondering if cucumbers, maybe apples, white balsamic vin, and shallots would be happy together? Maybe with a chili? All ingredients I'm taking with me for other dishes. Don't really want to bring yoghurt.
I've been practicing cooking on my camp stove all week and have everything down except for some sort of salad to go with the vindaloo. (sourdough pancakes with strawberries in balsamic glaze are acceptable camping foods right?) Vindaloo is tomato-y and has lots of lamb in it, so it's quite heavy. But cucumbers on their own or in vinegar with salt are just too light to go with the curry and not jar the tastebuds.
So, am I completely mad (yes, I know I'm already slightly mad for wanting to have full home cooked meals while camping) to think that cucumbers could work like this?
