Looks great mate, looking forward to seeing how it was done

And don't use non stick pans if you plan to use a hand blender I know the blade is held well off the bottom of the pan but the down force pressure is amazing and I even managed to knacker my Teflon with the plastic pan blender attachment so it's stainless for me not non stick

Lets Talk Curry / First effort Major success thanks to you guys

Hi just wanted to thank all the people who gave me the first advice in pots explained thred under the equipment section and to CUrryAnder for the brilliant instructions on his Base Mix plus the Vindaloo which I made and consumed this evening
The best curry I have ever made.... EVER!
I intend to work my way over the other recipes and hopefully give something back to the forum with any new ideas I may find but you guys seem to have everything covered

Thanks again to all


Lets Talk Curry / Re: Keeping pilau rice in the fridge
« on: February 18, 2012, 11:42 AM »
I normally batch cook my pilau and freeze in portions, this works well but just at the moment I find my stock of frozen pilau exhausted and the freezer full of other stuff. So I wonder whether cooked pilau rice can be kept safely in the fridge and if so, how long?
I've done this in the past and noticed the rice becomes a little harder I sprinkle a little water over it before reheating in the microwave

Welcome on board mate.  Glad you found us.  Looking at how you "used to" do it, there's nothing inherently wrong there and you're not a million miles aways from how BIRs do it.  You obviously got reasonable results too.  You'd be surprised at the things i tried  in order to get BIR results before i found anything written on the subject to guide me :o :o ;D  Look forward to your report and pics on your vindaloo.  Good luck.  Maybe the missus will be a little more appreciative of the expenditure when she's tucking into her curry.  Long term, look how much you're going to save by not going to the take away ;)

Thanks mate that sounds like the cost justification process learnt from women  :)

Hi guys,
Wanted to say how much I've appreciated this site in the last 2 weeks I've
Been on board.
I've looked at what must be nearly every post, and started with all of your brilliant advice on pans and stockpots.and hand blender

Then to base sauces after looking at most of them I've decided to start with CA's base which I made last night some for freezer and some for tonight's Vindaloo
I must say the base turned out spot on and can't wait to cook with it tonight

I will try to post a piccie of the vindaloo.

I've been making currys for years now and have to admit I now find Iused the wrong technique but always enjoyed the results so for your entertainment
Heres briefly what I would do

Cook 12 onions fried until soft with garlic and chillis then liquidize in kenwood chef till smooth
Then fry a general spice mix of coriander, cummin, ground from seeds in my coffee grinder I would also grind cassia and cloves and chilli  and add to the other ingredients then fry

Then add tomatoes 2 cans then add the onion mixture and boil it all up for an hour or so

Totally different to the true BIR method but it was nice :) this was enough for several portions

I am pleased to have come across this superb site and will make a donation shortly when mrs has come back off the ceiling after my spending spree on pots,pans,blenders and new Natco delivery :)

Thanks again guys.

One other thing Currymonster if you haven't yet read through the pan links (although it may be too late is), the single postage payment covers you upto a 20kg delivery.
So it can be quite cheap if you order a few items.

Frank.  ;)

Thanks for the info Frank
Yeah i was trying to pump up the order but in the end couldnt really think at this stage what else i needed but in the end ?6-60 on top of some ?5-00 added up wasnt too bad for the delivered pan in hindsight

Now for my next bit of study..... Following the recommended guidelines for a curry after years of playing it by ear

You definitely want rounded sides so you can scrape them with your curry spoon. If you have straight sides there will be a sharp angle where the sides meet the base and stuff will get stuck there.



Thanks Paul

Then this is the one I will go for

I have a delivery of some fresh spices at weekend so when I do a curry I will post some pics
