Excellent video, me thinks...

Isn't a list of ingredients mandatory?

He says in the video that he's a vegetarian (now?).

Anyway, this is a must-buy for me. He ran a takeaway for a while so he's a professional to me. His first book was very well done. I don't see much to complain about, especially when sold at a similar price as his first one. It's the cost of a single takeaway curry, what's to loose?

Very nice book, meggeth! All the recipes are on this forum for any member (or web spider) to see anyway. This just makes it a lot more organized when looking for things in a hurry or when offline. I appreciate that work and do the same. I've just learned not to share that sort of stuff anymore (even thread references and author credits apparently don't count). I'm afraid you probably will do the same now, too. It's a shame sometimes but that's life. Relax and ignore the ranting :)

Awesome project :)

Some ideas/questions:
Is it possible to just leave the whole tamarind block in there when ground?
Something about the colour: Maybe use more or a darker kind (such as "smoked) Paprika?

I'd love to try this out, will try to sneak it into the wive's food plan for the next week :)

I totally agree, Willyeckerslike.

If we're referring to SAT reception then there actually IS such a thing as an LNB (the thing you connect the cables to on a sat dish) that's ONLY capable of analog reception, BUT these have been off the market for quite some time AFAIK.

To explain: there's a 'low band' and a 'high band' - low band includes analog as well as digital stations, high band only includes digital stations. If your LNB only supports low band - we're talking ancient stuff here - then obviously it's not fully capable of digital reception. Hence, why you see LNBs marketed as 'universal' nowadays. It means they can receive both bands

To verify whether an LNB supports both modes check the tech details that are usually printed on it:
10.70 - 11.70 GHz ( Low )
11.70 - 12.75 GHz ( High )

So, it's not technically wrong to market something as a digital dish/antenna, especially if you're aiming at people that have had their setup for ages. Apart from that it's marketing, of course.

I love videos of people making curries, no matter who makes them. It's the fastest way to learn for me. I don't see anything wrong with that (making the videos or being a viewer) either. And I admire any chef who regards himself so good in his craft that he has no issues sharing his secrets since he knows that his own curries will still be better due to the experience he has.

Well, maybe the black salt spoiled it for me. There are so amny good recipes out there, though, I don't think this can get so much better.

Ok, I tried this today but I did two things differently: I only used chicken breast and I only marinated for 9 hours. Apart from that I followed the recipe exactly.

My verdict? Overrated. The chicken breast came out beautiful looking, moist and tender but the taste didn't blow me away, really. There's something about it that I don't like very much - maybe it's the mustard oil which I did temper as some members have advised and as I saw on some blogs about traditional indian cuisine. I think that CBM's/Mick's Tikka using Patak's pastes or CA's Tikka made from scratch are both better. Blade1212's, too, representing the 'no-yoghurt' camp. Not much, but still better. Yes, I am mixing up Tandoori and Tikka but to me it's almost the same. Call me an idiot, if you want.

I won't make this again.
