looks bollox, bhoona is a bhoona, a karahi is a karahi.. shes a dingbat!
"bhoona" is a style of cooking and also a recipe; "karahi" is a type of cooking container; where is the conflict ?

I made this when I got the pullout thing in the Sunday Mail weeks ago and it was delicious and that's what matters. I got the book last week and I've made the Bhuna again and also the Chicken Chasni which was also excellent. The book is gallus so it is.

This is from her book..verbatim...recipe above is correct

Im sorry but I don't think it is correct. Is the recipe in the book flawed, or just your typing?

I made the recipe this evening and guessed that the curry powder and turmeric goes into the pan at the same time as the chilli powder, but the recipe in post #1 doesn't actually say.

The result was pleasant enough and would get 3 out of 5 stars from me. The sauce was rich, due presumably to all the chicken juices and fat from 400g fresh chicken. But I think it probably needs a lot more spices in order for curry flavours to rise above chicken flavours.

According to my book, this line:
Add the G/G paste, salt, red chilli powder, tomato puree and chopped tomatoes, stirring frequently
should also include the turmeric and curry powder as suggested a couple of posts above.
