Now that is a golden nugget :o. If it works, how easy garlic puree will be in future :D. 95% of time spent on it is pealing the little blighters >:(
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........

That is amazing, I've just got to give this a go.  Don't suppose it would work with ginger too?  ;D

It is indeed, amazing, and it does work : I have just tried it (albeit with less than a full head).  A few caveats -- it is essential that you can get a good comfortable grip on the basins (or whatever); I used a heavy aluminium casserole with Pyrex lid, and I found it difficult to hold and tiring to shake -- I got lactic acid build up way before the ten seconds was up.  That apart, it definitely works, and is now incorporated into my chef's armoury of techniques.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

You have NO idea how much that's begging for a Smart Alec "come back" Phil!  :P :P :P

Change hands and you're probably good for another 10 seconds!  ;D ;D ;D

"Change hands" ?!  I'm already using two hands, and even those aren't really enough to get a good grip !

What en excellent tip, very good timesaver. Will try it asap!
"Don't burn the spices" is the most dangerous truism of all - because it's incomplete. It should be "Don't burn the spices but do cook them!"
You'll never make BIR if you're too cautious frying your spices.....
