Post by: Unclefrank on October 28, 2011, 02:11 PM

Anybody used or seen any reviews for it (i have tried searching Google but still nothing)

Hey UF, good find but what is it?

Do you actually cook the curries in the 4 pots provided or is it basically a 'warmer'?  Nice piece of kit either way and not a bad price. 

Now where did I put my macro card????? ::)

It doesnt kick in until the 2nd November.
Description in Makro "Fantastic for creating the perfect curry and heating indian bread."
                               "4 non-stick pots enables you to make a variety of dishes at the same time."
I dont really know myself Razor but i dont just one curry i cook maybe 3 or 4 different curries at a time, Wednesday had Chicken Madras and a Chicken Badami, the other half had CTM and a Chicken Badami.
Will be going to Makro on Tuesday night to go and get it, i think.

Here we go Stephen http://www.cook4one.co.uk/c2/sb/c41badami.html (http://www.cook4one.co.uk/c2/sb/c41badami.html)
I have tried and tested 21 recipes off this site so far with friends and so far all of them are well worth a try.

The C41 base sauce is very simple-not many spices!

The wife bought one of these last week because it looked "cute"...well she got it home and she made the Lamb rogan josh out of the recipe book that came with it and it turned out not too bad for her first attempt. ;)

Thanks a lot Benito do you think you will use it, not like the sandwich toaster or a coffee maker, use it three or four times then it goes into a cupboard and never sees the light of day again ;D
Do you think each pot is enough for one serving?
Have you tried them yet with a curry recipe from this site, if so what do you think.
I ask because the closest place to me where they sell this item is around 25 mile away.
Again thanks for posting the picture.

Another thing it says on some web pages that indian breads can be cooked on it have you tried that yet?

Unclefrank, the wife has used it everyday since we got it (9 days ago) to make curries and cilli con carnes.
Each pot i would say is well enough for one serving...
The only curry the wife has made are from the book provided, and the recipe book says you can make Roti/Chipattis aswell but we hav'nt tried them yet.... ;)
