I'll have to try that corned mutton, I'm a sucker for corned beef hash, this will add a bit of variety.

Nice little shop there Frank  ;D  Frozen shatkora no problem round here.  I know the fruit is seasonal and i'm not sure whether it's currently in or out :-\  I did manage to track down some shatkora pickle eventually after months of trying but as yet the jar remains unopened.  I'm intrigued by patthar ke phool (dagarful)?  What the **** is it and what do you use it for ??? And also the pomegranate molasses?  A condiment i've not seen before.  I wish i could buy some veg ghee the size you have in the pic.  All i can get is the small industrial size of 12.5 kilos  :o :o Sure i'd get through it but storage space could be an issue  :-\
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........

Hi CH,
Checked out the freezers and the shelves around Blackburn but no shatkora for me. :(
The patthar ke phool is a lichen with a lemony flavour (apparently) not tried it yet. First saw it in this recipe

The pomegranate molasses came from one of Goncalo's posts,(re Pasanda i think)  thought i'd give it a try.  :)

Looks like you had a fun day bud.

Payday and you did your best to blow it on curry stuff? You must be single :)

Nah, Everyone knows Asian supermarkets are the cheapest places to shop. £2.73 for all that lot.  :P ;D

It helps when the missus shares the same passion for all things curry.  ;)

Yeah, right.  Cheap but not that cheap  :o :o  Thanks for the info.  Those thinly sliced lamb "kebabs" look very tasty.  May have to give that a go  ::)  I'll add it to the list for now  :D

How unfortunate::)

The spice which ive been after for a while now has turned out to be the flavour i really hate!  :(


i bought some natco gm to try :-\ 
revolting flavour if you ask me, its going straight in the bin ;)


What do you think about the flavour of the Natco GM?
My old man really liked it, and me aunt, but i hated it.! Couldnt quite put my finger on what spice was in there that i found so repulsive. :-\


Patthar ke phool (dagarful) is the predominant flavour in Natco GM.
Well at least now i know. Too Indian for me! Its like adding a couple of incense sticks to a curry.  :o




p.s. Its becoming a bit of a habit answering my own questions on here.

Don't stop though, as i'm sure some of us will benefit  ;)  Who knows, this observation may help BB and JerryM in their balti quest  ???
