 Made this Madras again last night with a couple of refinements -

 All chilli powders were heaped teaspoons instead of level

 Added 1 ts tom puree to blended toms

 Result -

 Wonderful curry, perfect madras heat level, very very close to the real deal |



 All out of Admin New Base now so will be making a new batch of base this week, which base? not sure yet, but will be trying a different base to see what the results of the Madras will be using different bases

Forgot to mention that on the the 2nd attempt I also added a star anise to the oil and fried for a minute with onions then removed star anise while still frying onions, it gave it a little bit of extra flavour that I have noticed in certain BI madras's.

Can't beat a decent BIR madras,must admit they've got a bit bland round my way these days.The star anise is a very good tip indeed.I always wondered what gave my old style madras that aniseed hint of flavour,maybe fennel or indeed aniseed itself.However,I actually found half a piece of star anise in one dish a while back,so chefs do use these things,at least they used to in my local place.

Some great looking food there Andy.  Let us know when you arrive at what you consider to be your ultimate madras. I too use star anise when making my own version of a madras.  Those pics have definitely got me in the mood for my TA madras.  I do hope i'm not disappointed  :-\
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........

 I will do CH, made it again last night but used KD2 base (added a few extra spices to the spec), I cant really comment on it though as I had spent 3 hours making the base first, and as we all know the senses become nulled after all that smell, but I wasnt as impressed as previous attempt but that could just be down to making the base. Ive kept a portion of base and am making the Madras again tonight so will post results later.

Look forward to the report.  After my TA madras last night  :( , i'm very tempted to get in the kitchen.  Even on a bad night i can cook better  :o
