Welcome aboard, Colin.  There used to be some pretty good multi-ethnic food in a food mall near the CSIRO DITMELB building in Melbourne, but I have no other positive recollections of BIR (or AIR) food during my brief sojourn there in 1987.  "Cook it yourself" is likely to be your best bet.

What’s a CSIRO DITMELB building Phil?

Hi Colin, quite a few BIR curry fans in Aus it seems. Hope you’re managing to find the right ingredients.

Plenty of good recipes in the recipes sections of the forum.

Thought you'd had a minor stroke there Phil.  ;D

It's the CSIRO DIT Melbourne (supercomputers ... innit)

Correct, of course, dear boy.  But it wasn't quite supercomputers when I was there, although VAX/VMS was pretty d@mned good ...

Hello deerstalker36. I have seen many times the subject of your post. What exactly is it that makes Australian Indian food under rated by expats when compared to BIR? Do you feel that your home cooked "BIR" is better than Indian restaurant? I like the dishes I make using the BIR method and recipes but I've also eaten lots of delicious curry from various local businesses.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?
