Agreed, I'm just about to check supplies and finally get round to making this, this afternoon.  :)

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!

No, because the most productive thread was H4C's naans, without a doubt.

JB' base is a variation of many themes.

/Some/ make and eat naans; we all make and use a base.

That was not the point, Phillipo. The argument was what was the most productive, not the most used.

I think of it as a discussion, not an argument.  But I believe that the evidence supports my assertion -- IMHO, JBs thread has led to far more productive discussion than did H4C's.  This is not to decry the value of Happy Naans in any way; merely to suggest that the overall benefit of this thread to members (modulo any off-topic posts therein)  is greater than that of H4C's.  You may choose to differ -- that is your right.

I do choose to differ, my friend, and my use of the word 'argument' was intended to mean 'a reason or set of reasons given in support of an idea, action or theory', and not as you took it to mean.

I would, therefore, argue that, even if JBs thread has led to more discussion (which looking at the number of posts for both is also incorrect) it has not led to more productive results. H4Cs naans are now the accepted standard, in my opinion; JBs base is not.
