What seems to work best for me is a tip from Bengali Bob's: cook it for as long as the recipe calls for and leave it resting overnight. The onions (and other veg) will continue cooking until the heat dissipates and the fibres will have tenderised further. This is particularly good if you cooked in a pressure cooker, as it keeps the heat for longer, but I reckon BB does not use one. It took me 3-4 mins whizzing it with a stick blender vs my norm of 15-20mins til right consistency.

How timely and apt Goncalo.  I have just finished cooking CA 5 litre base. I was just about to dint the pan in cold water to speed up the cooling process before blending, but I think I'll leave it until later now ;)

Sorry, thought you'd posted about being in a restaurant there which had five stars on Trip Advisor?

That was how the post read and it was to highlight how I would love a good curry right now, except, the one I found has been rated as non-BIR by 3 reviewers on TA. It shouldn't come to you as surprise that you are in a curry forum?
