I don't have Chrome installed, but in Firefox (my second browser, main is Seamonkey) I see not a "Download" button as text but instead just an underlined downward pointing arrow.  Anyhow, don't worry too much — I can send you a direct download link via PM.

Worked OK on Firefox, so who knows.

I'm genuinely curious. I don't really see the point of this technique. This is just adding a tadka (some say baghar) to your curry base. I'm of the mind that I like to keep my base simple and tailor flavour to a specific profile when I make a curry. If I think a curry needs a finishing tadka I add it to the curry. I always bloom my spices in oil so maybe this is skewing my perspective?

Other than speed in a production kitchen what advantage does this have? Seems to me all this does is push all your curries to taste similar in the end by using a stronger flavoured base.

It worked for me using Chrome. Followed the links. Print to pdf.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

I agree with you. Certainly doesn't sound like something that a typical BIR (especially a TA) would dedicate either the time or material to when more traditional 70's/80's/90's methods produced a very decent enough curry. I believed the whole idea behind the base gravy was that it was 'mildly spiced' so that a few spices could be added to allow a whole range of flavours. If the gravy is over-spiced then that would limit the flexibility of the gravy - something I'm sure they wouldn't do. Certainly appears to be a lot of additional time and effort to produce for what is essentially (as you say) a tadka.  However i am genuinely interested to see the outcome of this 'modern' gravy method.

This is something that’s been emphasised many times by senior members like Chewytikka, who has a much better basis to claim the title “most contributing member” on this forum than the person who has driven him off the forum by deleted / editing all his posts.



I'm sorry - people's posts are being edited/deleted? This is why I flamed out at that other forum. If that is a practice here it would be good to know before becoming overly invested...

Hello romain, just to clear out the truth of what happened, the posts were moderated and not edited/deleted, our team did that because that member used racial and sexism language, additionally he posted some private information about another members place of living and work location, that was a clear violation to our terms and conditions.

Hi Sverige

Thank you for your welcoming comments.

However, for the time being I'm just visiting and seeing how the forum has developed and what's new in the world of BIR.

Not sure yet whether I'll be contributing as I'm old school BIR and it looks like things have moved on a tad - but time will tell.

Cheers.  :like:
