Thank you so much for posting this here Bruce, I really appreciate you have shared such a valuable information, many thanks. I will give it a go soon, I have got the freezer full of bases but I will manage to make some more room  ;D

Best regards

i've put the raw data into my base spreadsheet (ready for cooking) and i very much like the numbers and gel completely with the ingredients. i need to cook with it and establish the finished blended volume to be sure.

as Josh says some very interesting nuances in the technique.

real inspiring stuff

Great read from the master of BIR cooking, I can't wait to here peoples views on this.  I have just made a freezer full of base sauce so will be a couple of days before I get round to trying this word for word.

as luck would have it my cement mixer broke this morning and what better way to spend time than on the base.

immediate observation is a smell just like cooking Thai green curry. i think now that the ginger has been blended its combining with the coriander and onion to give a very nice aroma.

pic is of base coming to boil.

pic of base at end of cooking - 1 hr having added spice mix and tom puree.

the liquid tastes pretty good - the nearest base taste to it at this stage i've tasted is the rajver.

Haldi, you?re not wrong on this. coming down to the kitchen this morning was a dream - last nights smell "aroma" was still lingering.

i am going to wait the 3 days before making curry.

have attached pic of blended base - it now looks and tastes very similar to saffron (big fan).

my finished volume was 3.5L (adding back 200ml of water lost during cooking).

i am sceptical of the advantage of putting it in water to cool - i have always liked the idea of it continuing cooking as it cools naturally.
