Meat Quantity
« on: September 12, 2016, 12:16 PM »
Hi All,
When cooking meat based curries, what quantity do you add in.
I started with 6 - 8 pieces as suggested from the recipes, I then decided to check the weight, it turned out to be about 125g.
From that point one I weighed and froze these amounts as single portions. Having watched a fair few of the excellent videos available here I feel I am being a bit on the mean side, I cook a CTM every week for my son-in-law and there's no where to hide with this one, thankfully these days he has asked me to pile loads of mushrooms in, at least it looks more substantial.
Cheers

150g of precooked meat per curry, plus 300g sauce. I freeze these in 500ml takeaway containers and find the quantities provide a good size meal for my appetite.

Thanks Sverige,
Looks like I need to be a little more generous with the 'payload'.

I suppose it depends if you're serving it up along side other side dishes such as Bombay aloo, Chana masala, naan, etc.. Then you'd be looking for smaller portion size I'm sure. In my case I'm usually just eating the curry with rice these days so those numbers work well for me.
