British Indian Restaurant Recipe Requests / Re: BIR Butter Cicken

FWIW, whenever I've bought kasoori/kachuri methi, it's always been dried green leaf, very strong smell. Hope that helps.

Yeah, no worries.  I should have worked that out for myself really, doh  :)

Traditional Indian Recipes / Methi Gosht
« on: November 03, 2007, 06:53 PM »
This turned out to be pretty tasty and not a million miles away from a BIR methi gosht.  If I'd had any fresh tomatoes I'd have quartered a couple and added the pieces at some point (not too sure exactly which stage).  I made this at around midday and, once cooked, turned off the heat and left it 'to mature' until dinner time. I might leave it overnight next time :O)

Serves 3

1lb lamb cut into pieces
1 bunch methi leaves, chopped
2 onions
3 cloves garlic
1 inch ginger
2 tsp tomatoe puree
1 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
4 tbsp oil
salt to taste

Blend ginger, garlic and onion into a paste and fry off for a few mins in the oil

Add all the spices and the tomatoe puree and fry for another few mins

Add the lamb and cook for 5 mins or so

Add the methi leaves and salt and simmer until lamb is tender.

Add a splash of water from time to time if things start to look too dry/thick.

Hi all,

This recipe is the first thing I've made from this site (well, the second thing I suppose as I made up the 10 onion version of Mark J's base first) and I tried it out on myself, partner and step daughter tonight.  They said it's the best curry I've ever made and just like a BIR Korma and I have to agree with them .

So thanks to George, Channa, Mark J and everyone else who's had a hand in this recipe  :-*

And with a whacking great batch of base left, I guess I'll be trying out a few more recipes from here soon  :)


p.s. I had two small variances from the recipe as shown here.  (1) I used condensed milk for sweetner rather than sugar (someone suggested this early in the thread) and (2) the nuts I used were smoked almonds from Tescos. They only have a slightly smoky taste so not sure they made much of a change from the 'standard' recipe.

Hi all,

This is my first post but I *did* try a search for Methi Gosht first and got no result so apologies if it's already been posted by someone else.

If anyone has a BIR recipe for this I'd be much obliged
