Hi Livo
You are up against it, never tasting BIR in the UK and your struggle getting the ingredients
that are easy to obtain here, but you are similar to any UK expat living wherever in the world.

Following BIR batch style cooking principles, gets you as close to being here as possible.
You don’t have 40years experience of eating a BIR Madras, but you can certainly cook it, if you follow the principles. ;)

When your up and about, it would be good if you befriended an OZ Indian Restaurant
 or even one with an open kitchen and see if you could get a demo, so you could get
more of an insight into AIR methods.

As for the holy grail of the 1970’s, it belongs only in the memory of old men
Nostalgic Nonsense really. ;D

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

Hi Livo,

I am agreeing with Chewy. There seems to be a huge amount of nostalgia for 1970s curries here, which seem to me to just reflect that when you're young and trying something for the first time it blazes an indelible - and unreplicatable - impression.

Being in Oz, you probably have a similar problem to me in Alabama - finding the basics. By going all over my metro area I have managed to find everything I need except wheat-free asafoetida, which I have decided to just ignore. The "remaining 5%" is just colours of people's memory :)

Pure asafoetida is available online, if such can be legally imported into Alabama.

I can totally imagine him lurking here under some other persona.

I fear you are right and, as he's probably becoming more desperate, I suggest we need to be on high alert.

Why, George ?  What harm can he possibly do ?  He is a spent force, a control freak who no longer has anyone left to control.  Ignore him and he will fade into complete and utter obscurity, taking his private playground and his toys with him (those he hasn't already thrown out of the pram, of course ...).

Ah yes, I see the problem.  I bought mine at a far far cheaper price, from Planet Spices.  Current price USD 13.99 for 100 gm, post-free worldwide.  Cheaper to buy 1kg, of course ( USD 89.99).
