Hi, A bit of novice cook here but enjoy trying different curries and recipes.  I do have the Curry Guy Book but looking to gain more advice from more experienced cooks and enjoy reading others experiences.

Chat soon.

Thanks MickyP  :)

Just a quick question.  I am doing a bhuna tonight and already pre-made the sauce but its a tad too tomatoey but not horrendously so.  Is there a method to tone done the tomato taste a wee bit ?

Not to my mind — you would need to add a relatively large volume of onion/ginger/garlic gravy, in which case you may as well start again and this time be far more modest with the quantity of tomato (in any if its forms)  included.  Incidentally, to my mind a bhuna does not really have a "sauce" — it is (or should be) a fairly dry dish.

thanks Parapetic Phil,

I followed Dan Toombs recipe and although you are correct in being a dry curry it still has a sauce (or so i believe).  Ok I will leave it for tonight as its not totally unpleasant and could well be ok I am just super critical of my own work

OK, I shall be interested to learn how it turns out.  To my taste, too much tomato can literally ruin a curry, so I am always careful not to add too much. If you're interested in trying another recipe in the future, my "baseless (chicken) bhuna" is here.

Hi Peripatetic Phil,

It actually turned out great and I was, as usual, over worrying.  When I reheated on Saturday night I added a small amount of Mixed powder with a small amount of natural yoghurt (again following Dan's recipe) and was actually delicious.

My fiancee family who came round loved it, but will also try you recipe one day too Phil.

Thanks again for your help

Tony
