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

Whoa ...easy tiger, you are joking aren't you?

No need to you've already seen it done by Latif's. And as you've communicated with him how about asking him to do a small video showing him filling the balti bowl with water to the same level as the cream etc. and then pouring it into that measuring jug he has and showing on camera what the reading is. That'd put an end to the argument.

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 can only refer you to CH's post in this thread http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=15069.0

"...However, the balti dish he uses is  a standard size used normally for side dishes, being smaller than that used for mains.  Fortunately I have both and they are nigh on identical to those he uses.  So I can probably clear up the uncertainty over the "cup" measures in the video.  When filling the smaller balti dish to approx the same level as in the video and then measuring the liquid.it equates to virtually 400ml..."

By the way, before anyone is tempted to get too pedantic, I'm not saying it is exactly two cups he's using (the cup being a ridiculous metric in any case), I'm saying it's much closer to two cups than it is to one.

A few hundred years ago, you would have been arguing about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.  Not much changes.

Considering the degree of pedantry peddled by your good self on this forum Phil, there's more than a hint of the pot calling the kettle black there.

Can't argue with the King James version, old man.  No PC nonsense in those days !

There used to be a section on the forum that I can no longer find. Definitions / Acronyms. One of the acronyms I've referred to previously is FOAM and it was described as Fixated On Accurate Measurement.  I feel that this discussion may have drifted into this arena and I'm sometimes in the drivers chair, so no pots or kettles here.  Perhaps rather than nit-pick about precisely how many ml of oil, tomato puree or cream is in the pretty Balti Bowl shown in the video, (a non-SI measuring vessel, as is a Chef's spoon) we should be doing as has MA and actually making it to see how it goes and then adjusting these indeterminate quantities to suite our own individual preference and / or other odd containers in the back of the cupboard.

In my early days the analytical scientist in me was driven spare by odd measurement.  Last night I cooked a Chicken Madras from scratch without a single measured ingredient.  Perfectly fine.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

See Chewytikka's post on the same thread.
