Best CTM I have made so far
« on: January 25, 2019, 12:59 AM »
I wished to try a new Base and there have been some recently that I was going to try but I was delayed and other members tried them and posted their opinions.

Then a few days ago, a link was made to quite an old post, a post which is almost my "Nirvanna* and I had not found.

Result, I made Taz curry base, as it is the base used.  And since I have a pan of it on a low simmer, I figured I might make a dish I have made many times before to compare it to, hence the Subject.  Also it ties into my Splitting post.

It was delicious and now I have to add it to the list I will make for 'International Football nights' when they restart soon.  The list is getting longer than the number of people that I can fit in front of my TV!

The 'other' dish I hope to make tomorrow...


If you can learn something new and have a laugh, the day has not been wasted.

Looks the goods Bob.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Looks the part, Bob.

Apart from the Taz base, what was your recipe?

Sorry for the late response Garp,

Work getting in the way of Life I am afraid but also glad of, work was a bit bleak a few weeks ago and I still need cash to buy ingredients, as well as paying the bills.

I followed the original Mick/Taz base and whilst I was sceptical at first (it was the one used in Stephen Lindsay's Punjabi Masala I think), I always have to try stuff myself as we are not all the same and different people like different things.

As for the CTM recipe, I did mention I have been lurking for quite a long time and tried many recipes from many posters, founders and recent?  So the recipe I settled on is a bit of a mish-mash to get the taste as close to what I wanted (and the wife used to) from atleast 3 different posters.  I put it together, printed it out and have a laminate of it for easy reference without having to try to find the different posts and remember what I did last time, so No, not a traditional BIR and hence why I was a bit cryptic and didn't give it when I posted about "splitting", except that I like a creamy texture.

Later today I will have some chicken marinaded and ready to pre-cook so that I can try the Punjabi Masala, which reads and looks very much like a "Boti Tikka" dish I love and used to be able to get until my favourite TA closed, moved, and lost his head chef... I have been searching for a long time without success to replicate it.

If you feel like sharing your CTM, Bob, I'd be happy to give it a try.

As for Stephen's Punjabi Masala, it's one of my favourites  :)
