Nigella Lawson gave an interview with NPR to discuss all things involving love and food.

Lawson makes two suggestions for V-day dinner, one of which is vegetarian.

Interestingly enough, this dinner can be viewed as a labor of love for your sweetie, or forced labor on him/her if you make them help you chop the tomatoes, the task she considers to be the hardest.

“This would also be a lovely recipe to do if you don’t want to serve up something as if you were working in the restaurant, but wanted to have your partner with you and chatting. He or she could be chopping some tomatoes as well,” Lawson said.

Lawson’s dish calls for onions and garlic cooked together, then joined by the lover/indentured servant produced chopped tomatoes.

Mustard or cayenne power, hot chili pepper and garam masala are mixed in for more seasoning and turmeric gives the curry a golden yellow tone.

Unfortunately, the page where you can listen to the interview only contains the list of ingredients for the non-vegetarian dinner. Ironically, the vegetarian dish is one Lawson would most likely make for her husband, Charles Saatchi, who lost a significant amount of weight after switching to a vegetarian diet.

However, a general discussion of how to make the curry, which includes coconut-flavored rice, is written well enough that you could probably figure out how to whip this up. If things get confusing, have your love slave/tomato chopper assist you.
