Simple Chicken Madras
« on: January 04, 2019, 12:28 AM »
I have posted this to show that imho, a curry does not have to be 'swimming' in oil whilst still being cooked and full of flavour (for that you will have to take my word).
My son and I ate this earlier this evening and the last of it, shown below, won't make it through the night.

I used Chicken thigh meat that I deboned this afternoon with KD-base/PT

Still swimming in oil there Bob and its split , probably your base.
still Ive seen a lot worse on here lately
plus received a lot of too oily split curries from TAs in the past.

Totally agree on using less oil, cooking at home.
You only need 25ml oil or ghee to do a great Madras.

cheers Chewy

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

Thanks

First photo is not as it looked, it is after I 'played' with it in Photoscape and it just made it worse.  It was also cold as it had been made about 4hrs before and I put it into that bowl (saved for guests) for the photo.

I have had a LOT worse which is unforgivable imo, given that I live in the Curry Capital of Britain.

I’m guessing your comments are reflected with your own personal opinions Chewy? Would you also be able to link us to your list of curry’s failings and your (a lot worse category). Then maybe members could also post their fave curry and flaming condiments clangers  ;) could be fun.

I hope you don’t mind me asking, I’m sure members would also have their own opinions and judgments.

Bob a Job.. your meal looks fantastic Imho.

Looks just the right amount of oil to me, Bob — clearly visible while not forming an impermeable film over everything.  Well done.

What a hide?  Fancy posting a comment that is reflective of your own personal opinions. That is really quite unacceptable.  From now on Chewy, you should post only those comments  pre-approved by CarpCarp and reflecting his views.

I can't wait to see your posts on the requested failures, (and the a lot worse category)  ;) could be fun.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

I would like admin to confirm that I am not Chewy, by use of logged IP or other tools that are available.

My recipes, ingredients and techniques might be questionable (beef madras, etc) but my posts are my own and to insinuate that I might be somebody else, because somebody else likes them on this board is a little paranoid?

You've misunderstood Bobajob. Nobody is questioning you or your posts.
I know you're not Chewytikka.  My post was, however, directed towards him.

Bob, I don't think anyone believed that you were CT in disguise.  But it is a sad fact of life that there are those here (and, of course, elsewhere) whose greatest pleasure lies in (a) seeking to demonstrate their own knowledge, experience and expertise at every possible opportunity, and (b) criticising or even ridiculing those whom they dislike or with whom they disagree.  In my experience, the best way to deal with such people is to completely ignore them — disagreeing with them in open forum merely boosts their already-inflated egos.  Fortunately they are very much in the minority, and the vast majority of members here will be happy to offer praise when due and/or helpful advice when needed, without a trace of smugness or patronisation.

I wholeheartedly agree. I have always wondered why people on here insist that you need an oil slick on your curry to make it authentic.
