I now need to find a new mission.

30 odd years ago there was a start up business, in a beachside town where I used to surf, that was run by a young husband and wife team, cooking and home delivering "Indian" food. I only tried it once while visiting friends who actually lived there in the beach town.  Indian restaurants only just started to happen at around the same time but the business, like many others, failed even though the food was fantastic.  The dish that stands out in my memory as something I'd love to recreate was a Chicken Korma, however, it was a white korma.

This may be a much shorter mission than the previous one as I think that CT's Malai Tikka might almost already be close to the mark.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

I did some analysis on this one today.  Looking pretty promising at this stage.

Not hot but nevertheless contains 6 green chillies and a fair amount of both black and white pepper . I know some people don't like korma but it is a curry, this one prepared traditionally, not BIR.  I do like korma and might add it was pretty good (imo) . This is a variation or combination of 6 recipes for traditional Pakistani White Korma or Safed Qorma.

Naan.   The best I can manage is something similar to the ones you can buy from the supermarket, which are nowt like a TA naan.

Thanks, will try that one out and let you know the results.   Flat breads in general, other than basic chapati,  elude me

I have in my humble opinion smashed loads of curries to perfection with the help of this site. I've even gone against all that is holy, tried hot pineapple in a dhansak and really enjoyed it ( Hawaiian pizza still belongs in the bin). I just can't find anything resembling the taste of a vindaloo that I get from any takeaways/restaurants around me, despite having tried everyones mega/final/ultimate recipes.
