Hi sns,  ;) It is down on my "to do list" {which gets bigger every day}. If we don't try it, all you work will have been for nothing. If Raj can visit you and cook a curry in your home with your kitchen equipment then I would say you have cracked it my friend......mike

Hi Mike

The gravy recipe was what I was really after and I'm more than happy with that. The rest is now just experimenting with various recipes. Any further input from Raj is a welcome bonus.

Regards

SnS ;D

Just tried it now. Good solid results. A good standard base for sure.

Crikey Bobby - that was quick.

Did you make the Madras as well as the gravy? Do you reckon it's as good as BIR ... smell and taste?

Notice - no use of garam masala.

Best regards

SnS ;D

The gf wanted a curry so I got her to chop the onions etc lol. Just used the base SnS, I used the darth madras recipe with it. It was very good indeed. Good classic BIR taste. Similar to some of the other good bases on the site. It's certainly a solid contender and a safe bet!

Haha, that was quick wasn't it! It was purely chance SnS but I have been looking forward to your post. I came here to see what base I'd choose for tonights curry and bingo! What a spot of luck! ;D

This is on my list to try as the next base sauce.
Thanks for sharing.

I should have mentioned that I scaled down 50% last night when I made this base. I have never found a problem scaling down bases, I'm just more careful about measurements.

Hi Bobby

Did you half everything exactly??

I may try this myself next time as the recipe acually makes quite a lot and my freezer is getting a bit overcrowded.

Actually SnS, that raises an interesting point.  Can you and/or Bobby give an approximate indication of

a) the size of pot you need to cook the base from start to finish, and
b) approximately how much base this makes?

Thanks in advance,

ast

Hi Ast

Makes about 4 litres of gravy. The rate at which you simmer/boil the ingredients will have some bearing on how much you end up with of course.

My pot is 7.5 litres and it fits very comfortably in this - see photo on original post.

I whipped up a quick prawn madras using 2 ladles (200 ml) of sauce and I've got tell you ... it was really great.
SnS ;D
Hi SnS
      Thanks for the post
I can't remember if you said, but is the madras recipe from this restaurant too?
