i've got onion on my mind at the mo (since the Birmingham balti video and the flames).

i can't believe the onion is cooked in the 4 mins when heating all the ingredients up together. onion seems to need a big chunk of heat intially to get it going. it does cook out in the sauce but it takes a lot longer than 4 mins without this initial high heat frying in plenty of oil.

this suggests to me that the onion is processed in some way - i'm thinking salt (onion bhajis softening). very small proportion of green pepper which i can understand.

ps i love his portions - nothing more upsetting than a part filled container when u get home.

a further general thought.

i know that my local TA keep their gravy boiling away during service.

at home down to practicalities i've always used it cold. for me it makes no difference hot or cold. the only thing i find is that the cold need's adding in smaller amounts intially so that there is no dip in the pans heat.

That looks the worst Bhuna I have ever seen in my life!!! Bhuna should be a Medium, Rich, Thick consistency!! this looks more like SOUP!!!! :(

Couldn't agree more 976bar. His definition of bhuna, which seems to be shared by many on this forum, seems to be a basic curry with added onion/pepper/tomato chunks!

Nasty.

I have to disagree with Jerry, Mikka and axe as to the quality of this guys curries. They seem to me to be low-quality standard takeaway curries and not something we should be aiming to replicate.

I think you're right Jerry about the onions. When I make a bhuna/korai style curry I deep fry the onions and peppers for a few minutes and put them to one side.

Another observation is the fact that he has quite a few litres of base in a plastic container. To me this means that he never heats it up as I can't see the point of him tranferring it back to a metal pot.

As it look nothing like a Bhuna, I am sure it won't taste like one either.

His Madras wasn't that bad at all, I don't have his burner though. His Bahjis were fabulous too.
