Who was the 1st to use cabbage on this wonderful site ;D

He Who Must Not Be Named mooted it as an idea in 2008, and shortly afterwards Haldi stated that he had tried it, amongst many many other things.

Yay, George ressurected the thread four years later and now it's closed.

That ronnoc was a bit of a character though- seemed to go mental for no reason :D

He misunderstood CA ("1/4 pint of yoghurt is a no-no", read as "yoghurt is a no-no") but then CA went out of his way to wind Ronnoc up, using his list name five times in a single post in what was clearly intended to be a deliberately provocative manner :

Quote from: Cory Ander
It is a "no no" in the context of adding 1/4 of a pint of it to make a korma Ronnoc (in my opinion).  It simply is not an option to using single cream, double cream, or milk.  The result will be dramatically different.  It will be much sourer and BIR kormas are not sour (in the slightest).  I'm sorry if you can't seem to see that Ronnoc?

Nevertheless, Ronnoc, what you are apparently trying to present is recipes from a particular chef in a particular takeaway.  It's still not clear, from your posts, which ingredients HE actually uses when HE makes HIS korma?

Thanks for your forbearance and perseverance in giving your recipes the best chance of success Ronnoc  ;)

You want people to have success with your recipes don't you Ronnoc:-\

Perhaps you have the takeaway madras recipe instead?  I think most of us would be able to better relate to that Ronnoc  :)

Classic CA  ::)

Ironically, for an old base, it seems to have quite a lot in common with todays current star of the show (JB's, pace for the comparison!)- lot of the same ingredients, and with a (near)tarka too. But it didn't seem to get a good review; or was it his curries that were being criticised rather than the base?

But korma. What a recipe to promote!

And cabbage is used in the op's recipe in that very thread. If we keep going we'll have it back to Roman times.

Was he smiling when you asked him?

Thinking of doing a new Scottish base with neeps in it (and maybe a wee dram).

That is how ridiculous this debate is getting...

Maybe.  But it has all been mooted (and tried) before.

H O W E V E R . . . We are in grave danger of de-railing what has, without doubt, been the most productive thread of the year, and quite possibly of the decade.  May I respectfully suggest that we move all non-JB-base related follow-ups to the "Off-topic" thread, and ask George to tidy this one up out of respect for JB ?
