johnny fow, timeless,

i have internal struggle on this one. i'm intent on trying it as i like the spec very much - my kind of dish for sure.

the only trouble is the sugar - 3 tsp per portion is a hell of a lot for me (no sugar in tea or coffee). i know CA says down to choice.

would appreciate your thoughts - how does the sugar sit in the dish - can it be reduced without spoiling the dish.

Although I haven't tried this recipe, I always find CA's recipes too sweet. I tend to add a 1/4 of what he states (e.g. with the Madras I only use 1/4 tsp).

From what I've seen sugar is never added at the curry making stage, the sweetness comes only from the base.

It implies that the base hasn't been perfected.

Of course, that doesn't include curries where the addition of sugar is mandatory like CTM, korma etc.

I'd recommend avoiding CA's curries because they are formula curries derived from Pat Chapmans' sorry efforts.

You should try Bruce Edward's. They are quite authentic.

They are low compared to mine, but this is becoming standard fare, so don't feel too bad.  ;D
