tt,

eagerly awaiting your results. i too have pathia fighting for my fav spot. not tried it to date as i felt i would never get near the taste using things like sugar and lemon. however i made the ifindforu base last and it needed tamarind paste which i'd never used before. i think i quite liked it in small proportions and sold that when added with other ingredients ie the pathia mix it brings that little bit extra out in the combined flavour (this it does in the base).

thanks tt,

i've got ok from my boss to make a base this week so will make this curry 1st.

very glad you've got good results. i've not been disappointed once from the CRO site.

on the seasoning i've recently bought rajah general purpose and it's very very good ? a wow I would say (a little too salty but not a problem if u don't use too much typ 1 tsp)

Made the ub pathia to spec and it was very good (nb i used the LB spice mix which is my norm not BE and probably should have added some rajah curry powder but it seemed fine without). I did like the method of effectively throwing all the ingredients in.

I did make the chicken to the spec method (broiling for the 1st time) and found it very nice. I need to work on the method a bit as the chicken was not as tender as frying)

I made a second portion of the curry using the frying method (added in this order: tomato paste/onion/capsicum in one go, spice mix, base, pathia mix) keeping the addition of the final ingredients the same (fresh tomato, coriander, lemon juice and base chicken). I felt this produced the best taste. This may be just down to it being more of a kin to the taste i?m used to.

I?ve got in mind trying a further derivative of the method by adding the pathia mix as individual ingredients after the base with the exception of the sugar which I would add with the tom paste.

Certainly will add it to my list of top notch mains. Many thanks ub

Hi, first post alert so please bare with me.

I am not new to eating curries, but new to creating BIR home-made versions, so having created a base (forgotten whose, sorry!) and created a fantastic dhansak last week, I am tonight trying a pathia - but you list pathia mix in your ingredients - and I can't find this anywhere!! Is it a specialist pre-mix that I have to persevere in finding or can I make it here at home with the standard home spice stock?

I salivate in anticipation of your answers.

Thanks

Hi timayes, no need to salivate! its really simple!, just mix these ingredients together

"100 ML HOT WATER
25 ML COCONUT BLOCK
3 TSP TAMARIND
2 DSP SUGAR

METHOD

ADD 100 ML OF BOILING WATER TO BOWL, DISSOLVE COCONUT BLOCK, SUGAR AND TAMARIND. KEEP MIXING UNTIL ALL HAS DISSOLVED. YOU MAY NEED TO HEAT THE MIXTURE A LITTLE TO HELP THIS PROCESS"

this is the pathia mix, its a liquid mix.

ps. please let me know how you get on, thanks UB  :)

Unclebuck,

Thanks for the prompt reply, I am now heading to the kitchen!
I have just noticed in your first post for this pathia that you quite clearly mark what is the Pathia mix! I will read all future recipes several times before panicing.

Thanks
