Ive made a Phall with 25 Birds eye chillies, 2 Scotch Bonnets & half a tub of extra hot Vindallo powder
OK Ghanna & all on the forum hear is my " bloody hell it smells just like my take-away " curry.? Make the base as indicated at top of this thread.(BEST BASE TO DATE ). INGREDIENTS.FOR THE ACTUAL CURRY. 1. 2 LARGE SPANISH ONIONS 2. 1 WHOLE GARLIC BULB. 3. 1oz 25g FRESH GINGER. 4. 14oz 400g TIN CHOPPED TOMATOES. 5. 1 TABLESPOON TOMATOE KETCHUP. 6. 1 TABLESPOON TOMATOE PUREE. 7. 12 BIRDSEYE CHILIES. 8. 2 WHOLE STAR ANISE. 9. 1 TEASPOON GROUND CUMIN. 10. 1 TEASPOON GROUND CORIANDER. 11. 3 DESERT SPOON EXTRA HOT CHILLIER POWDER ( ORANGE/BRIGHT RED ) NOT BROWN RUBBISH. 12. 1 TEASPOON FENGREEK. 13. 1 TEASPOON GARAM MASALA. METHOD.? ? Finely chop 2 large Spanish onions , Garlic & Ginger. Heat 600ml of veg oil in large pan(i use a very large stew pot so i can heat it up really hot & have no oil spitting all over my brilliant white kitchen ;D ;D) This heating at high temp i believe gives the right smell as you have changed the properties of the oil,this is were i agree that if you use the oil from a previous? batch to start another you get that taste & smell , cook/fry the onions till they just start to go brown ( they are really sweet now !! ) Add Ginger & Garlic cook until onions are browning all over turn down heat (medium). Add all spices ( not star anise ) cook for about 5 minutes. Add tin tomatoes,ketchup,puree & chillies bring to boil then turn down cook for approximately 10 minutes ( medium). Allow to cool then puree all ingredients add Star Anise cook medium 10 minutes.? Chop finely some coriander & stir into curry gravy. leave till next day.you will notice how sweet it has become & smells really nice ( can ya smell it ??) I COOK ALL MY CHICKEN THE SAME WAY? .3 breasts diced.put in pan, boil kettle put into pan with chicken & half teaspoon Turmeric & cook until cooked right through. I believe my success is due to my recipe`s being simple in spice content (if you had a take-away what would you do ?) I hope this is of use to you all. ALL THE BEST DARTHPHALL. p.s Ever eaten too many phall`s !!! ;D ;D ;D ;D
