Pugs you over cooked it. Be careful about copying video receipes and trying to replicate the cooking duration as you can lose sight of the need to cook it only until it's done. A few things could account for the different result you've gotten compared to the video that you may have been copying. First maybe your base sauce was thicker when you started, so it reduced down too much. Second possibly your hob was too fierce.

Well anyway take it steady next time and when it looks done don't cook further even if you've seen a video showing a longer cook. Having said that though you do need a fair cooking duration to get those spices nicely mellowed so also consider if you need to thin out your base sauce or turn the hob down a bit.

Thanks for info Sverige.  ;)

I suspect that I'm having issues deciding on what pan to use whilst cooking. I dont feel like my existing Wok does the job, so have been experimenting with other cooking utensils, tried a heavy cast iron cassorle dish (don't they use heavy cast tiron traditionally) and a stainless balti dish (which cooked the above) but seems to get too hot too quickly. So each is different with the 'timings' whilst cooking. I'd like to get a dish similar to the obe in vid, complete with lid but cant find anything like them.

A 22cm to 26cm frying pan will be perfectly adequate. Aluminium, stainless steel or even non stick Teflon. Many swear by aluminium but it's far from true that you can't use other materials. No need for a lid, just put foil down around the hob ring or wipe up straight after cooking.

Update, tried this again for lunch and what a difference, went back to my old Wok and just went with gut feeling. Is a great recipe and I love a Madras with a sour undertone. My fav so far and very much like the Indian Madras I had on Skye.

Made myself a tasty Madras for last nights dinner, only used a very small amount of tamarind but still bursting with flavour.
Using JB,s base.
Here's a pic of it bubbling away.
