Sorry fellows l'm going to have to disagree
It's more or less the same ingredients but cooked slowly
you should get a perfectly good curry
I suggest someone's technique is letting them down

there was no hint of fenugreek which is a glaring omission from my point of view, also the seeds from tomatoes can be very bitter also - don't think its anything to do with cooking technique

I agree it probably produces a good curry but, like SS suggested, it leans more towards traditional cooking than BIR recipes. I see the main difference here being the addition of quite a lot of raw poultry or meat. It means that a lot of juices and fat will go into the sauce, which should be a good thing, but it's not BIR.

I look forward to trying this recipe, for sure, and I'm grateful to Adey for sharing it with us.

If you don't get the whole spices to release their flavours
And you don't cook those onions right down so the oil separates and get the sweetness
The same applies to the tomatoes ginger and garlic then cook the powdered spices
If you don't get your timings right and at the end there is no oil release then I would say an average curry

It's a staff curry - who said it's purely BIR?

I reckon if you can't get a decent curry from this recipe then you ain't much of a cook. All the ingredients are here, why shouldn't you make it work?  ???

Cheers,

I will try this but I won't be adding so much butter.  In my opinion, Staff curries knock the spots off BIR curries.

It won't be this recipe you're trying then, will it? Before you order ANY dish in a BIR, do you ask for a run down of ingredients and quantities so you can ask them to cut back on any ingredient you don't think you'd like? I'm not trying to be funny or rude, but it must be the logical extension of your comment.

Also, how many staff curries have you tried and were they cooked by you or eaten in a BIR? If served by a BIR, did you ask them to cut back on any ingredients?

You are correct.  It won't be exactly the same.  I only want to cut back on the butter for health reasons.  I dodn't want to make a big issue out of it.

I've tried a number of staff curries; chicken, lamb and fish.  I did have a go at cooking a couple myself and not I didn't hask them to cut back on any ingredients.  However, when I cook them at home, I dont' add quite as much salt of chilli powder.  Again, for health reasons and some family members can't take a very hot curry.
