Hi Guys

Just wondering how many of you use methi in your madras and what the consensus is...use it or not?

Cheers

"Methi" as in ground fenugreek : always; "methi" as in Kasoori methi (fenugreek leaves) : sometimes.

Hi Ed
At one time Kasoori Methi used to go into just about every dish. Part of the Bengali Bhuna style of cooking.
Not so much these days, Chef Dependant, but still an essential part of BIR Chefs work table.

A pinch in a Madras, won’t go wrong, just like a pinch of Coriander leaf.

But a lot of Chefs these days, want to serve a clean looking Madras sauce.

Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.

Just a question,Chewy. Have you ever tried any other Indian cuisine other than Bangladeshi/Bengali?

Of course Garp, but I’m open to suggestions from your experience.

Like which is your favourite restaurant and what kind of BIR is it.

I just wondered from your posts, Chewy. You seem to go on a lot about Bangladeshi cuisine. Would you care to elaborate, from your experience, why Bangladeshi is better than other dishes?

Can anyone else let me know if they use methi in their madras, ignore the off topic posts.

Cheers
