I couldn’t find a Kashmiri Spice Mix locally so I followed the recipe here https://www.archanaskitchen.com/how-to-make-homemade-kashmiri-masala-spice-mix-recipe
Exchanging 3 whole turmeric for 2 tablespoons of ground.

I saw that link and used it along with several others to do an analysis of Kashmiri Masalas.  I recently went on a mission to find / recreate Kashmiri Spice mix, aka Basaar, Basar, Bassar, etc.  I also found it quite difficult to obtain although I did end up having some success finding some proprietary blends and also found that my own creation based on a purchased "Fish Masala" turned out to be a very close match. My search also led me to making contact with a local Spicery here in Australia who immediately added a Kashmiri Spice mix to their product list.  I was given a sample pack and it is quite good (contains Dagar Phool).  I believe you may be able to get Herbies Spices in the UK but I'm not sure if this new product is available there.  Apparently not anymore.  I could send you some.

Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Please remove or ignore this post.  I hit the "Modify" button in my post above but it did a recursive quote instead and I didn't realise.

Here is another link back to a very early thread from 2008 on Basaar.

I have been watching this excellent programme on television then watching it again on iPlayer to jot down some of the receipes that I found interesting. One was Beef Shatkora and the other one was  Bengali style Rohu curry. I then searched online and found two recipes that  looked interesting and so if anyone else is interested am copying them online here.

Has anyone actually tried any of these recipes yet?

Regards

Mick

I have tried a few of them including the Sheek kebabs, tasted great but I found the mixture to be a lot looser than other recipes, the lamb masala we have cooked twice, once with lamb on the bone and once with diced leg, both were very good, we really liked the beef shatkora cooked with orange rind so much that I will source shatkora to compare, I used ox cheeks instead of chuck.. I have cooked the okra curry twice as I use it as a side dish, this will be my go to okra recipe for some time I expect. Finally I made the goat curry but replaced the goat with mutton, that turned out very good. I have printed all these and the other recipes from the series and will likely work my way through most of them but some will definitely be cooked over and over again.

One thing I should mention is that I don’t always follow the recipes exactly in regards to spicing. I tend to increase both ginger and garlic and I spice a little heavier than some recipes suggest.

I’m on a quest to find a good preprepared  Dhansak Masala. I’ve searched high and low in London, including all the grocers in Brick Lane as well as West and South London without success. The Asian cook shop in Braintree doesn’t stock it. Looks like it’s back to the pestle and mortar.

Try Patel Bros in Tooting.
They sell the mangal box masala online through their sister company.
They're the big shop opposite the zebra crossing on the main drag.

Used MANGAL Dhansak for years, never found a better blend.

But whats Dhansak got to do with this thread… ::) :-\
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol
