Hi
Pp, the site is called "one page cookbooks" has lots of info and recipes from the Indian sub continent. He uses the term "primers" for bases. Will try and post a link when back in the office.

That is an interesting link indeed, especially the section on "base paste"

It's got me wondering if we could make our beloved base gravies without water?  That is sweat everything down very slowly until the veggies are soft and the spices are cooked, blitz to a puree/paste, and seperate into ten portions.  Once we get to cooking the main dish, you add a portion of the paste along with 250ml water (bit by bit) and Bob's your uncle.

Think of the freezer space we would save ;D

I might just give this a go :P

P.S, sorry to wander off topic :(

Fellow aussie here down south in chilli Canberra. Thanks heaps for these base recipes. Couldn't understand how they'd get such a huge difference in flavours between a Butter Chicken and other curries without using a different base. Your base recipes clear things up a bit. My favourite IR serves a thick, smokey, tomatoey and slightly sweet butter chicken. Got high hopes i'll be able to replicate this using your tomato base. Looking forward to the recipes.

Hi

PaulP, yes that is the site and thank you for posting the link. The early ones you use to a able to print off, what I do now is save the image then convert to pdf. There is a lot to discover on the site, some may change the way you view BIR food.

Regards

Thanks Mark for taking the time to post this photograph. I am looking forward to seeing where you take us, please continue to share. Thanks to guys for drawing our attention to the one page cookbook stuff. I was going to cook an Ashoka Do Piaza tonight now having followed the link above I am going to experiment a wee bit with the preparation and use the marination process highlighted by Ramki. Thanks for joining in Ramki. I suspect quite a few of us breakaway from our BIR addiction and occasionally cook traditional meals too so your material takes us on a better journey, cheers. PP
