Phil, We have a quandary here,er indoors is in favour of Kris Dhillon,s base,the relatives over the Border prefer coriander powder in the base of curry they had whilst down here,although may be a beery response from them.

No quandary there, then -- since you see 'er indoors every day, and the reivers only rarely, best to stick to KD1/PC on a daily basis and switch to the coriander-based base only when the skirl of the pipes announces that another doomed invasion is imminent !

Phil, thanks for posting this. I started with KD base sauce many years ago and made some excellent curry's with it. Thought I would have another go using this variation. I have been moving away from the heavily spiced bases I have been using of late to allow more variation in the final dish. A couple of questions  - any particular reason for the long cooking time in the pressure cooker (which is much longer than the original recipe)? Also any further tweeks to the recipe since this was first posted?
Regards
John

No real reason, John; it may well work with less time, but I didn't experiment to see what effect cooking for less time would have ...

Only to say that for my most recent curry I didn't even bother with the final phase (no tomato, oil, turmeric, paprika) and used ready-made g/g paste (large catering size) rather than fresh ginger and garlic.  As I was planning to add some tomato pur
