Scott Morrison panned for detail in his curry photo: 'STILL RAW'

·3-min read

Scott Morrison's latest curry dish left some people shocked when he shared a photo of what he served up to his family on Facebook.

It's no secret Mr Morrison likes curry. He's shared pictures of his dishes in the past on social media, but people were actually concerned this time.

"Nice to have a night at home. So curry it is. Sri Lankan Tamarind Eggplant and Okra Curry and a classic Chicken Korma," he wrote on Facebook.

"Strong Curry. Strong Economy. Stronger Future."

However, it appeared as though the chicken in the korma dish was undercooked, with the piece of meat looking quite pink and the potentially raw chicken did not go unnoticed.

"How good is raw chicken? A fair dose of salmonella for those who have a go," one person said in the comments.

"Looks like you cook chicken as well as you lead the country. Underdone," another person said.

Another person said they knew of a "really beautiful Sri Lankan family" who would most likely make great curries, referencing the asylum-seeker family from Biloela who have been locked up in detention.

"Instead of badly cooking a curry, how about releasing the Murugappan family from Biloela?" someone said.

One person on Twitter tagged Gordon Ramsey in hopes of getting his take on the prime minister's curry.

Though there were just as many people complimenting the dish as there were people pointing out the raw chicken.

In 2020 Mr Morrison caused an uproar among West Australians after he resorted to making curry during "working through some issues with WA".

In 2021, after returning home from the US and isolating for 14 days, the PM was told to "read the room" when he cooked up some curry in isolation.

"Read the room — pretty distasteful putting this up while most people have to quarantine without even being able to open a window never mind cook a meal," one person said in response to Mr Morrison's Instagram post.

No salmonella for PM, no false promises for Labor

It appears the PM has not been struck down by salmonella as he was back out on the campaign trail on Monday in Sydney, marking the end of Ramadan by taking part in Eid prayers at Parramatta.

Meanwhile, opposition leader Anthony Albanese was out in Brisbane where he said his government wouldn't be making promises they couldn't keep if elected.

Mr Albanese said a Labor Government would work with each state to help fund public hospitals.

Premiers are clear about their desire for an even split between federal and state on hospital funding, Labor would be upfront about what was possible, he said.

Mr Albanese said Labor's proposal to establish urgent-care clinics would help take pressure off hospital emergency departments.

"We're inheriting off a government that doubled the debt before the pandemic, a trillion dollars of debt," he said.

"So that is why we are being very responsible, very measured in the proposals that we have put forward."
