I was so pleased with the vindaloo I made the other day I decided to make another. I used JB's other takeaway base for this one  and the flavour was very nice again.
I have posted the recipe in the vindaloo section if anyone wants to try it.









All the best

Vindaloo / Chicken Vindaloo
« on: January 15, 2019, 07:00 PM »
I found a portion of base in my freezer, enough for 1 large curry, so I decided to make another Vindaloo. The base was JB's other takeaway base gravy http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=14226.0

This is the mix powder I used for this recipe
4 pts Turmeric powder
3 pts mild Madras (rajah)
1 pt mild Madras (TRS)
2 pts ground Coriander
2 pts ground Cumin 
1 pt paprika
0.5 pt Garam Masala (rajah)

Ingredients (I use measuring spoons for my TBS and tsp ingredients)
2 TBS vegetable oil
2 crushed kashmiri chillies
1 TBS g/g paste
2 TBS diluted tomato puree
A good pinch of Methi leaves
2 tsp Mix powder
1.5 tsp Kashmiri Mirch
1.5 tsp Deggi Mirch
0.5 tsp ground black pepper
0.25 tsp salt
Less than 0.25 tsp ground cardamon
Approx. 450ml base gravy
2 chicken breasts from a roast chicken cut into 4 pieces each
2 finger chillies finely chopped
1 small squirt of lemon juice
3 small pre cooked potatoes
2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp tomato Ketchup
0.5 tsp garlic paste
Fresh Coriander finely chopped (including stalks)



Method
Heat oil on a medium flame, add the kashmiri chilli and infuse. (pic 1)
Add g/g paste and cook out (pic 2) followed by the tomato puree and methi leaves.
Stir in the ground spices with a little splash of base to make a paste. (pic 3 and pic 4)
Add the chicken and mix well with a squirt of lemon juice.
Add the chopped finger chillies and some coriander stalks. (pic 5 out of focus)
Add 150 ml of base and increase the heat to near maximum and stir well to fully de-glaze the pan.
Add a handful of the chopped coriander and mix and wait for the sauce to reduce. (pic 6)
Add garlic paste and vinegar and mix. Cook for another minute or so. (pic 7)
Add 150 ml of base and mix well.
Reduce on high heat then add 100ml of base, potatoes and ketchup. Mix well. (pic 8 )
Continue reducing then reduce the heat a bit and add the remaining base and chopped coriander.
Thicken to your desired consistency and serve. (pic 9)



Chicken Vindaloo


It had a really nice depth of flavour and heat and would probably serve 2 people.

All the best

Good post Stephen. Something else I noticed was when he added the salt at 4.04 he said he adds the same amount of salt as his mix powder, I assume it must be the curry powder he mentioned when he added the ground spices.

All the best

Lovely guitars SR

 Im a "bottom end man" lol. My wife bought me a second hand 1976 fender jazz back in 198o for £305.

Ive got 6 other basses but shes still my fave.

Still gigging around Brum but not as often as Id like to...

Perhaps we should start a band!!

Band name anyone??

Regards Mick
Thanks MDB. Yes I still like my mid 80's Kramer, the neck on it always feels like home. I don't gig much either now, most of my work comes from teaching guitar in schools which doesn't work too well if you're getting home aroung 2 am from gigging  :D

Band name anyone??
"The Cr00ners" (zeros, not ohs) !
Yes that would work Phil, but if it's a metal/rock band I think "Vindaloo and the ring burners" would be more appropriate  :)

All the best

Those Vox Mini 5 have a nice sound and if you're playing at home more the 50w Marshall is a bit loud  ;) personally I just can't part with my gigging amp (Mesa Boogie Mk4) even though I don't gig much now.

The first one looks like a strat but I don't think it is

I'm not a guitarist but my mate collects them and now has about 50


That is a lot of guitars  ;D Mine is far smaller than that due to space/money hahaha. The guitar is actually based on a Strat by another fairly high end company, I'm sure your mate will know what a Levinson Blade is.

All the best

Yes the PRS was one of those guitars I had to get. They stopped making that model with the solid Brazillian Rosewood neck after that so I'm glad I did but paying for it hurt!
The last guitar is a Washburn EC29. The 29 frets was one of those 1980's ideas for shredders everywhere!  :D
