Weren't some folks laughing about the 'melting base' fairly recently?

The concept's fine, I think it's the melting bit that provoked derision.

I know what you mean, the whole 'melting' concept along with 'milky' is really subjective. I was trying to teach my bro in law a bit of Indian trad cooking from a recipe that mentioned 'melting' onions and he didn't get it at all!

Many thanks for sharing this, JB :D

Do you mean white or yellow/brown onions?

Thanks so much JB
Once again you have come up with something new!

Sorry if I'm repeating things, but have you posted the basic curry recipe?

Nice one thanks for posting this jb

Yes they were but only on this forum, quite a few were 'rofl' about the glasgow base(whatever that is).
Try the recipes to spec, see how they compare to your local. That's all you can do

I knocked up a Vindaloo using this base and was quite impressed with the result Bir aromas in the kitchen
lured the nextdoors around for a sample I and they were delighted ;D
Anyone else tried it?

Hi JB
I expect you are busy in your kitchen now
I don't know if you can get back to me in time, but here goes
I made the base and I thought it was pretty much like many I have done before
That was BEFORE I added the tarka and reboiled
That really transformed it
This tastes genuine
It's got that extra flavour
Thank you

It's very similar to my friend Ali's takeaway gravy
I've had countless conversations about it and even watched him cook most of it
But I could never get close enough to the flavour for my satisfaction

But have you got that Basic Curry recipe to go with this?
I'd like to try this tonight
I don't want to cook the Tikka Masala one at the moment

If you can't get back in time, don't worry
I'll freeze it

I want to cook a recipe that goes with the gravy
I don't want to ruin what seems so promising

and thanks again

I just tried the base again
It's spot on
The missing flavour is there
I never thought I would ever achieve this
Thank you!
I've tried loads of base recipes with garlic & ginger, spice mix and tomato pur?e.
But garlic on it's own and then boiled, is it
Anybody else agree on this one?

Can you elaborate on how the garlic is cooked? You said it's finely chopped then fried till brown, Are we talking a subtle pale brown with care taken to avoid burning, or are we talking about a healthy semi-charred dark brown with associated bitter flavour.?
