It's similar to cup sizes, they tend to very depending what they contain :-\

Are you talking about what I think you're talking about ;)

I also remember we never had tablespoons at home and everything was measured in desertspoons.

Hi MA
Circa 1995 Mr Bham's Imperial Balti Express
free book when you bought a set of Balti pans, rumour has it! ;D

Previously explored under the belting balti flag.

Bad idea blending whole spices in a base sauce.IMO ;)
cheers Chewy

Ah cheers Chewy, never realised it had been covered before.
Yep that's the one, I remember getting some pans and a book with it.
Nah I wouldn't blend whole spices either.
Interesting to see if anything can be done with the recipe though, I used to make a simple dish from the book using only chicken garlic ginger salt toms and a couple of spices and it was always very nice.

I made a half quantity of the gravy yesterday and will do the chicken dish this arvo. Gravy tastes OK on its own with reduced cinnamon, but the 25 minute cook required additional water and is still very thick and dry. I'm not sure yet, but I'm not a big fan of fresh coriander and I think it may be a bit strong. Finished dish will be the test.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

The Rogan Josh was less than ordinary and I contacted the author who happily sent me a .pdf file of her later recipe. It was an improvement but still not what I was after.  Lake any cookbook it possibly has 1 or 2 pages that work out for the owner.  I haven't tried too many dishes but I have used the Balti base which I consider to be quite good.
