An unhappy compromise for me. Just have to be a bit more careful who I am on the internet now  ::) :-\

Great vid and you know what, I'm glad i found somebody who uses Tamarind to get that flavour, I love it and i found a madras on Isle of Skye which had it the recipe, gonna try this one.

LittleChillie, any chance of listing down the steps for prosperity here?

Is it something like

1.   Heat oil until sizzling
2.   Add tablespoon garlic\ginger puree ? stir and fry for 30 secs
3.   Add 1 Star Anise, 1 Green Cardamom, 1 Bay Leaf, stir and fry for 1 min
4.   Add Mix Powder, Chilli Powder, Fenugreek, and salt (quantities?), immediately followed by puree  -stir and fry for 30 seconds
5.   Add ladle of Base sauce, reduce
6.   Add ladle of base sauce, stir
7.   Add chicken, stir in, simmer and reduce (should be at around 5 minutes cooking buy now)
8.   Add another 4 ladles of base sauce, stir in
9.   Add teaspoon of Tamarind
10.   Reduce sauce (2 mins)
11.   Add lemon to taste
12.   Continue cooking (good bubbling), cover
13.   Add 1 halved tomato
14.   Continue cooking for 5 mins, add fresh coriander leaf
15.   Serve


PS

I understand that you are asking for the size of that particular spoon but, for what it's worth, here we go again.

A Chef spoon is not a standard measurement or for that matter a measurement at all. I have found that in store (over here anyway) and online the correct name (or another name) for them, should you want to purchase one, is a Basting Spoon and they are actually available in different sizes usually measured in length, not capacity.  (Also available with slots and holes but that is meaningless to us here.)

I have three that look about the same size, roughly, but when I actually measure what they can hold in water (1 g / cc / ml) they vary considerably.  The first stainless steel one holds only 20 ml. The other two (a nylon and another SS) both hold almost double that at 39 ml and 41 ml.

A "Chef spoon" cannot be used as a unit of measurement.

Even a Tablespoons "standard measure" can vary and so is not "standard". 
1 Tablespoon [US] = 14.7867648 Milliliters
1 Tablespoon [Metric] = 15 Milliliters
1 Tablespoon [UK] = 17.758164 Milliliters
and I have a silicon one in a set that says 1Tbsp / 20 ml and holds 20 ml.

Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Hi Pugs, please update me on how you enjoy cooking this Madras dish. My advice is don't get caught up with measurements, approximately will do just fine.
Enjoy.

Okey doke. Guess it's getting the ratios right more than the actual measurement, if that makes sense.

I used to have a nice ladle that had measurements embedded into the metal on the spoon, wish I hadn't binned it, was actual rather good.

Ok disaster. Dont know what I'm doing but struggling with getting the correct consistancy\density with the sauces. It tastes good but doesn't have that BIR look and no smooth sauce, mine 'breaks up' and over did it with the oil on this one. Last picture is with oil removed but look closly with the sauce and it's 'modulated' and consistant :-\ Whats that all about was looking good until after the chicken went in, thought i'd put too much base sauce in but couldn't have, i thought it too runny and hence tried to reduce and why the toms are err disintegrated

Recovered the mess a little, by doing a standalone mix plus base sauce and then added it to the existing curry seens above, not ideal but the texture is now correct and is ok'ish. Whilst practicing with the frying GG\Mix\Puree\Base its ok but when cooking a curry, I end up with the disaster above.
