Tried a new base the other day. just messing about [...] Anyways it came out really well, I remember old school curry where the chicken breast had been cooked on the bone, it was always very soft. Thoughts on above gravy and what about cooking a whole chicken in base. or evaporated milk/milk.
0. I made a base as above. It worked out great for me. Made a balti, then a korma and was happy wth the way they turned out.
1. Cooking chicken in base. What I meant to say to say is, has anyone cooked a whole chicken in a pot of base? No need to reduce down, when the base is thinned out just wack a chicken in and slowly poach. I would take the chicken out when cooked. Then use the base as usual maybe top up with a little water to account for any evaporation.
2. Has one poached a whole chicken in a couple of cans of evaporated milk/milk to bulk it out.
I've never poached chicken in milk but I've certainly done smoked fish that way.
