CardiffCurrylad are you having trouble uploading your pictures for this threadbest, Rich
I would add spices/mix powder in there CCL, chilli will determine the heat.1/4 to 1/2 tsp may make it medium dep on chilli powder used, its hard to say exactly I use GG,no tomato paste/ 1.5 tsp any mix powder thats handy, methi, salt & base. I'm sure my local doesn't use tomato paste in a basic curry. It's almost the same colour as a base gravy, thats why I do it. You'd be as well trying one with & one without tomato, you'll have 1 more curry that needs to be eaten then which always a good thing ELW

I've no idea why longer frying on a lower heat isn't getting me the results of the full blast method, I thought they would eventually get to the same stage, but I've not managed that yet. It would be great for forum members on if it was possible, it would certainly take the mess & panic out of it. I'd like to hear if an Asian chef, or just an Asian homecook, would turn the pan up full when cooking at home. I can hardly think of anything I've ever cooked up full blast in a frying pan apart from thisELW

In my experience they become bitter when frozen roar. However if you fry them and freeze them they seem to be fine. What do others think???
