Well have to tell you Mike this recipe of yours is now a firm favourite for me and mine, it just gets better, I don't yet feel confident enough to make my own base and sauce yet and this has been a great starting block for me, I thank you again for a great dish!

Rossy, just go for it.  Forget confidence, that will come later.  try and remember the trials and tribulations you faced in your life as a youngster, and those you overcame and mastered.  Curry is a lot like this; it takes practice & experimentation.  At the end of the day you will find what makes you happy, not the mass's opinion.  Think about it;, BIRs take this chance every day, some fail and some win.  The difference is money! (and the Chef  ;D)

Trust in you trip and go for it.

Bi Bi everyone, guys and gals all

Mike,

Just to say thanks for this great recipe - have cooked it 4 times now and it does just keep getting better & better (my girlfriend is a BIG fan!)

Was my first foray into Indian cooking & will def not be my last!  ;)

Best,

I notice MT has added the seemingly now 'traditional' coriander garnish with this dish.

I lived in the Middle east for 8 years ('76 - '84) & travelled all over ME, FE & Africa incl India, Sri Lanka - in all those years eating curries & all sorts of dishes everywhere, I never ever came across coriander used as the liberally sprinkled garnish that it appears to be today.  i have a friend who often was physically ill after eating certain Indian meals - but couldn't put his finger on the cause - until he took an Indian cookery course & tasted alll the spices and herbs .  When he bit into coriander, he knew instantly what the cause of his problem was.  I must say myself, it is not a taste I care for at all & feel it spoils a meal the way it is lavished so liberally over evry In dian dish you come across.  Even when you say no coriander - it still gets put on !

When did coriander suddenly become de rigeur to be put onto Indian meals ?  Basically it spoils the taste for me.  I never used to see it in ME or Uk for that matter until say 15 years ago

Hi Ghoulie,  ;) It does seem to be that most Indian recipes finish with the words "Add coriander to garnish". I have started to leave this out now when cooking as it begins to taste like sucking the end of a pencil if you add too much. Thanks for your comments.....regards..mike.  ;D
