Curry Cooking Weekend
« on: March 30, 2018, 10:47 PM »
A couple of times a year I take a batch of curries though to my pal's in Edinburgh and we have a bit of a  curry feast. My partner and my pal's wife are vegetarian so I always do a some non-meat curries as well. This gives me a chance to cook some recipes that wouldn't always be my fist choice but I do enjoy them too. Indian vegetarian cuisine of course well established, though my repertoire is somewhat limited.

Today I have made all these curries to take through tomorrow evening. Here are my efforts from  today - 8 curries in all. Each photo shows a general shot and a close up. Hope you like them!

Thanks for the feedback  everybody. I think they may well be on CRO but if not, and you wanted me to post something then just give me a shout on here.

SL, Free food, good company, Ideal curry night! ;) :D
Pics look good, Chasni had to be in there, the Scottish staple
and not too much food colouring as their usually radioactive red.

Your Chana Masala would go down well here, in fact inspired
Ill have to knock a couple up later.

cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

what's the recipe for Brinjal Bhaji?

Haldi - here you are - I've got a feeling this might be adapted from a recipe by Curryhell but I can't remember.

Brinjal Bhaji

Ingredients:


5 tbsp oil
1 tsp panch phoran
1 medium onion finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic sliced
1 tsp garlic ginger paste
1 tsp dried fenugreek leaves
½ tsp salt
1 medium sized aubergine medium size sliced then cut into roughly 1cm chunks (prepare the aubergine just before adding to the pan)
1 tbsp of tomato paste already diluted 50/50
2 tsp spice mix
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp chilli powder
4 chef spoons of base sauce
1 fresh tomato, roughly chopped
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

Method:

in a saucepan heat the oil on medium
add the panch phoran
when the seeds start to sizzle, add chopped onions, garlic, garlic ginger paste, fenugreek and salt and fry till translucent
add chunks of aubergines and stir to ensure that it is coated in the oil
reduce heat to low and continue to cook until aubergine has softened
at this stage the aubergine will start to release some of the oil back into the pan
return heat to med high and add tomato paste and fry for 30 seconds
add spice mix, turmeric and chilli powder and stir fry for 30 seconds and mix well
add base and fresh tomato and stir well
continue to cook until the aubergine has cooked through
add coriander and stir in
remove from heat and let stand for a couple of minutes, garnish and serve
