Hi Phil(chaa006) why are you saying this
Quote
lol Phil....flat or rounded?  ???

Best read Andy's own words : 

Quote
Any one actually tried this recipe rather than arguing over heaped level or rounded teaspoons?

so I suspect Andy neither knows nor cares (also my own point of view).

** Phil.

 I never said that about this recipe, that statement was posted in another topic and in regards to everybody arguing over that topic, so how can you say I neither know or CARE!!!!

I wrote what I did in good faith, Andy, based on your reaction to other people's discussion of flat, rounded and heaped measures  in another thread.  I assumed (perhaps wrongly), that you were not interested in nit-picking, and that you believed that exact measurements were not vital to BIR success.  If I was wrong, I sincerely apologise.

Ah I see Phil, your post just came across differently to me, my mistake it sounded as if you were having a dig. I do , as you say, believe that exact measurements are not vital but i understand that people would like to know exactly what the recipe used in measurement terms, flat heaped etc so they know how the recipe is supposed to taste, regards Andy

I agree it's so important, I'll be happy to add a line to your post #1 to say all spoons measures are level. I'll leave out the bit about 'unless otherwise stated' because there's no such comment in this particular recipe.  Is that OK?

Hi Madrasandy.....well it tried this recipe to spec this weekend and I must say it may well now be my "goto" madras!

It was superb, I think the combination of the methi, worcestershire, minced onion and chillies and all the various powders made the difference. My previous favourites are/were CT's and CA's so to say this may top those is praise indeed. I am making 3 curries for the pub for my wifes birthday shindig over the bank holiday, korma, CTM and now THIS!!

Well done Sir!!!!

Hopefully I will post some piccies soon!

I want to give this a go sometime soon
Sorry if I've missed it, but where does the main precooked ingredient go in?
Just before the last ladle of curry gravy?

Hi Haldi

I actually don't pre cook my chicken, i'm in no rush, so i do it a la CA style, that is put it in at the start and seal it straight away and then in with the recipe in the sequence according to the post. The chicken is then freshly done and still nice and moist.
