I followed this thread from its opening. Took me a while to get around to making and testing out with a variety of currys. And the result? It's good, no doubt, but Chewy's remains my number 1.

This one definitely has something different, and that something I've tasted before somewhere (let's say takeaway twang). Not sure what that comes from, possibly the garlic fry. Still, in general it seems to lack the depth of flavour that comes from Chewy's; and I'm not even going to get into the cabbage debate  :-X. But I know what I like, and other base sauces have to be tested against it. And it's not just me, guests show more enthusiasm for a curry made with Chewy's base.

All said, a base is just a base, and the curry must be built on it. Perhaps my chosen curry method and spice proportions just happen to sit well with the Chewy base; that's hard to say.

Today was my first curry in several weeks. All came together in a flash; great result. I felt like a chef in an Indian  8).

I now use this set of ingredients for my base but I cook it in a similar way to CT, by which I start of by frying some of the ingredients in the oil and then cook it down for the first stage in the pressure cooker for about 30-35 minutes, then do the remaining stages similar to the original recipe with the lid off. The other element that I do differently is I blend the garlic tarka into the sauce and strain the mixture with a sieve like CT's recipe. I have to say that by mixing the two ideas I am getting the best results that I have had so far.

Hi all,

So, having read the past 38 threads a wee bit of conflicting amounts. Can we have a defintive quantity checklist for HOME amounts if possible please?

This link will take you to a pic spreadsheet I made that gives JB's in a HOME qty.

Thanks Livo. Quick ? any significance with the teaspoons being 't' or 'T'?

Me too. And I use teaspoon for teaspon.  ;D

(the irony is that when I first typed that I typed "And I use teaspon for teaspon"!

Must be catching.   ???
