Here is the finished first stage base gravy.
Bear in mind this is a Phone Camera & the Base should turn out a Golden Yellow.

This is a better quality picture from Johns post that gives the best idea of the colour of my base (Golden Yellow :)).
Thanks John. ;)

OK I've bagged up the Base gravy for freezing.
You should get approximately 7.5 litres of Gravy in total.

I use 1.5 litres per final second stage of the actual Curry making.

This will make (Approximately) 8 Curries (home made size,which is about double a Take-away portion).

So the approximate grand total that this Base Gravy batch will make is 36 home made size Curries or 72 Take-away sized portions.

Please don't get all Furry & take these calculations as written in stone, these are close approximations anyone found taking it to literally will be hacked in half with my favorite Light Saber. ;D

Respectfully yours the DARK LORD OF THE SITH  :P.

Hi Darth -
 Tried this recipe....plus implemented a slight variation...loved it . The lager +++  complimented the meal admirably ! Full marks for your effort ..my friends and I humbly bow to the Curry Sith for sharing his magnificent Madras mania to the minions . Hopfully we shall not be lured to the " dark side " of BIR !

I'm very glad to hear you have achieved the same results as i,this base can be used for any type of Curry.
Did you use Olive Oil instead as i have?

Also see this link it tastes superb  http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=692.0.

The Dark Lord thanks you for your kind words & looks forward to completing your training. ;D

Hi Darth,

Just to pitch in my five-pennorth, now I have seen your photo's of the stages of base making I can confirm this is exactly what I got too.
My only mistake was not to add enough water and so I had a more condensed and over spicy base but now you have made things clearer anyone can duplicate your recipe faithfully. It's also nice to see other folk are giving it a go with good results.

Ray

P.S. A lot of CTM's have single cream added to the dish as well as Coconut. Have you considered adding this in your experimental CTM?

i did think of some Creeeeeeeeem but i like the more savory style Curries & not too rich so its a bit like a well mannered Madras & tastes totally excellent,my wife & I are having it for Tea ,so it has to be mild for her sake because my Curries nearly kill her. ;D
And thank you very much for your Friendship & support of my efforts,(The enjoyment of others who make my recipes makes all this worthwhile  ;)).
And i shall continue to experiment as i have many new ideas,good job i made all that Base Gravy. :D

Just took some of the sauce out of the freezer and made the Madras (a toned down for heat version) for supper.......I was very pleased with the results.  Thank you Darthphall!
