Curry Base Chat / Re: Bases: Fried onions vs boiled onions?
« on: January 11, 2008, 05:33 PM »
I don't think the "when" matters only that frying does occur. I work off 2 cook books for the base (KD and Balti by Lynette Baxter). The end result after the final cooking stage from both in terms of sweetness is the same. the KD base (onions boiled) is quite bland and needs the final cooking stage to get the taste. The LB base (fried onions) has a lot more spice in the base and tastes almost the finished product at the base stage and hardly needs the final cooking stage.

Ast, it's a brilliant post many thanks.

what garam masala mix did you use. i am trying to get one where no one spice stands out.

i to favour the KD base (but 2 tins toms and no turmeric). i think your spot on in that the missing ingredient is the cooking technique. Just like you i use a frying pan on med/high, add a little oil when the pans hot, add the base, then a simple spice mix aimed at madras (2tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp chillie, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp coriander, 1 tsp cumin). I stir/fry the base until the spice mix is mixed in (something like 30secs moving the pan away to control the heat). I then add a little garam, stir in and serve.

I am almost there on taste. Trouble is although I?ve tried a few garam mixes I can?t get one where no spice stands out.
