No but I did try Pat Chapman's base that had milk in it some 30-odd years ago now. It was contributed by someone from the Curry Club and, from memory, I think it was called a Pakistani gravy? Anyway I never tried it again so I assume (being fairly early days in my search for BIR nirvana, so was a bit naiive) that it didn't impres me much...cue Shania Twain.  ;D
Fighting for truth, justice and the BIR way!

It looked like a different bodily fluid to pish mate ;)  It never even got out of the pan. Smelt of anniseed and looked like milk through green glass. **** that. Waste of onions and pan time.

I appreciate this is an old thread but i had to laugh when i came across it, I still have that book from the 90's and the Balti Pots, unlike the latter the recipes didn't remain in use very long ;D
