Chris303,

looks seriously good and just up my street.

i am very interested in the rogan josh masala seeing the black cardamom which i had recently banished from my spices (too overpowering). i'll keep an open mind though. the pics are fantastic. will certainly give it a go this week.

looks a real gem of a recipe.

Chris303,

meal went down very well (indeed) and now on my "make often list" along with CTM.

the rogan josh masala turned out very interesting. when roasting the black cardamom i took off the husk partway and discarded them. i think this helped cap the otherwise strong overpowering tendency. i very much liked the finished masala but on tasting the powder i felt the black cardamom did overpower and for future would reduce from 4 to 2 off. after making powder and tasting i refined slightly by roasting and adding my fav 1 tsp star anise which i always find adds a little something.

surprisingly though the black cardamom was not too overpowering in the finished dish (above still holds good though i feel). what i did feel was that the dish was slightly over spiced and i will in future reduce from 1 tbsp of rogan josh masala per portion to say 2 tsp. (this was surprising as last week your madras had opened my mind to increasing the depth of spice by going up from 1 tsp of spice to 3 tsp per portion - i think the need to reduce in this case is down to the strength of the individual spices in this masala)

in terms of cooking for ease i would combine the tomato paste and spices to add in 1 go. i did not fry the chopped onion enough (need to get it starting to brown) and need to do better next time which i think will also improve the result.

i really gelled with the chopped toms which i added just at the end once the rest of the base had warmed through. i used 1/2 tin of toms but next time would use fresh - again this would improve significantly my result.

i used the saffron base which i felt had too much turmeric in and again next time will reduce this so as to improve my result.

overall got to be 10/10. the colour, the smell, the texture...

many, many thanks

Jerrym, I can't understand, if you give it 10/10, why you advocate changing so many things?  Maybe youre aiming to 12/10?  ;)

sorry,

what i was trying to say is - as made to the exact recipe something like 6 or 7/10 (for my personal taste buds)

with the changes i feel it would come out at 10/10 (again for my buds which are targeted towards tomato, garlic, onion & a little chilli).
