Latif inspired base and chicken madras
« on: January 14, 2019, 06:32 PM »

 Only 1 cup (250ml) of oil, Tom purée and single cream is needed, maybe not even that much cream. I made it too spec apart from the unknown Tom purée ingredients, where I added pinch of g/g ,turmeric, paprika and tandoori powder to oil then added Tom purée and small tin of toms, cooked it down and blended it, not  sure how close that is but hey ho.
 Anyways the base had a wonderful flavour, and a taste that is recognisable in any base  gravies I’ve had from restaurants, very moreish without been overpowering.
 I made a Madras which was delicious, but was it better than my usual base/Madras recipe? I honestly can’t say, but I’m excited to try s few more of my usual curries with this base to see how they compare.
 Hopefully Latif will upload some base gravy curry videos soon

Great looking dishes Madrasandy,
                                                             What base sauce/Madras recipes do you normally use as a comparison.

    Regards pap rika

Chewy's pressure cooker base and a zaal/chewy madras combo for this one.
My normal madras is my own one, but for new bases i use the zaal/ chewy recipes

Well done MA.  Glad someone has now done the cook and used it. I may get to it today as we are entering a 4 day heatwave so outdoors will be off. The base and the Madras look tasty. I see you omitted the cheese. ;D

Well, no, you didn't make it to spec. There is clearly much more than one cup of oil, cream and puree used. As discussed earlier it's much closer to two cups (~ 480mL) than one.

Er yes  I did, he clearly states 1 cup ( 1 cup = 250ml) , I messaged him to avoid confusion and he said yes 1 cup 250ml.
So yes I did make it to spec, thanks for your concern though ss

Well, if we are being accurate, no you didn't. What he says and what he actually adds are two different things. I'm going by what he adds in the video, not by what he says he adds. He also over or underestimates the other ingredients such as the spices, garlic, ginger etc.  If you don't believe me get yourself one of those balti bowls and pour 250mL of water in it and see where it comes to ... it won't be anywhere near to the brim as his are. He may be able to cook curries but he can't estimate quantities for toffee.

Why don’t you make it SS with your 480ml cups of oil purée and cream and let everyone know how you get on  ;)

My small Balti bowl is 300 ml to the brim. 1 cup (250 ml) is as he shows in the video but mine is stainless steel and not identical. It looks to be the same size though unless he has monster hands. 

I do agree that his garlic and ginger estimates of 1 tsp are closer to 1 TBSP. It is possible to lift that much out of a jar with a teaspoon.
