I made this recipe several months ago, and I have to say it is superb, one of the best Madras's I've ever made :)

Hi 976,

I'm just letting it rest for a moment as I type.  Early indications tell me that's its defo a Madras!

I completely cocked up my first effort and burned all the spices, something I haven't done in at least 4 years lol.

Update to follow.

Hi guy's,

I have just finished the Zeera Madras, and it was very nice indeed.  It had the heat, and that certain tangy taste that the madras is known for.

I still need a bit of practice with this one though.  It wasn't quite as oily as I'm used to and it was slightly thicker too.  The Worcestershire sauce adds something to it, there's no doubt about that but I really want to have a go at using tamarind, just to see the difference.

It still not quite as nice as my local TA madras but that's almost certainly down to me more than the recipe.  My local TA madras has the heat, the tangy taste which I'm convinced is actually tamarind.  It almost has a 'mulligatawny taste to it, which also uses tamarind.

Very nice madras Chewy, thanks for posting.

for me tamarind is a key ingredient. getting the amount right is the difficult bit as it has to be subtle - you would not know it was there. i'm warming to chewytikka's idea of putting it diluted with water into a squeeze bottle so i can try in a few dishes.

Hi Ray
Keep at it mate, you'll crack it.
Jerry
I'm using Maggie Tamerina sauce, its a really good blend, great on its own as a dip
or thinned and added to a curry.Well worth a try.

Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.

Chewytikka,

many thanks will get a bottle of maggi next. i've only used TRS (the blue container) which is very good but straight out the fridge difficult to use.

Hi Chaps

Approx how much of this tamarind sauce would you add to a single portion?

Many thanks

This stuff? Even when it isn't in the fridge it's diffiuclt to use - it's like tar.
