Happy to go with his mix powder, although that will mean the expense of purchasing a bag of paprika which I avoid using as is possibly one spice that seems to degrade quicker than most other  >:(  I will use JB's base.   At least i'll be able to make a comparison between other madras curries I make and his, although strictly speaking of course it won't be Dips exact recipe because of the base swap  :)  And then we've got the variable of what garam masala do we use, as it does account for 8% of the mix powder overall, which ranks higher than many other recipes.

Great I think I have Jbs base and some paprika still, although I always enjoy a trip to my Indian store, you could always pick some up at Aldi 49p if your able, it should do the job.

At the risk of starting to sound like George in one of his more antagonistic moods, I cannot see the point in the exercise if we are not all going to use the same base, "mix powder" and recipe.  The base is presumably fundamental to the recipe, as is the "mix powder", and as CA thoughtfully included links to both Dip's base and his "mix powder", should not all participants in the group test use both of these if any comparison is to be meaningful ?

I agree with LC, use your own base if needed, and then try and replicate the rest, its about fun and stimulating the forum.

I'm in

To be honest (and here I fear I may sound worryingly like George in one of his more depressive moods), I cannot see the point in the exercise if we are not all going to use the same base, "mix powder" and recipe.  The base is presumably fundamental to the recipe, as is the "mix powder", and as CA thoughtfully included links to both Dip's base and his "mix powder", all participants in the group test should surely use both of these if any comparison is to be meaningful, should they not ?

Where as I would normally agree with you Phil, I think it's better to get the ball rolling and it is just a bit of fun..  Making it more complicated for a first go would probably put people off imo of course.
