Fennel bulb
« on: January 26, 2019, 10:01 PM »
Some base gravy recipes use a variety of additional vegetables in small or larger quantity. One I've never seen listed is fennel bulb. The reason I raise this is because I bought one a week or so back meaning to roast it with other root vegetables but forgot to include it. It sat in the back fridge untouched. A few nights ago I put leftover curry in the same fridge along with the big pot of leftover Latif's base gravy.

When I opened the fridge yesterday the aroma of fennel infused curry was amazing. The fennel bulb has absorbed the curry aroma and now smells delicious even though raw.

Has anybody ever used fennel bulb in a Base Gravy or is it used in curry dishes in BIR?

No but I always add it to couscous, by couscous I mean North African stew and not semoule (the grain). It has a pretty distinctive anise flavour. Wouldn't be BIR or AIR but might taste good.
