« on: March 06, 2010, 11:09 AM »
Sufficient for about 5 portions of curry

Ingredients:

6-7 Onions
1 cup (250ml) Vegetable oil
-  1 tsp salt
-  2 tbsp fresh garlic/ginger (blended)
1 Green pepper (i.e. capsicum)
-  1-2 carrots
-  Handful fresh coriander leaves
-  3-4 fresh green chillies
-  Water  (sufficient to cover the vegetables)
-  2 tbsp mix powder/spice mix (here: http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=4354.0)
-  0.5 tin (about 200g) tinned plum tomatoes

Method:

-  Put all ingredients (apart from mix powder/spice mix and plum tomatoes) into saucepan
-  Add water
-  Bring to the boil and simmer for 30-35 minutes
-  Add mix powder/spice mix and plum tomatoes
-  Simmer for another 10-15 minutes
-  Blend to a fine consistency (adding a little water, if required, for right consistency)
-  Put in fridge and use within 3 days (otherwise freeze)

Note:  ensure that the onions are not undercooked for right flavour

the comment on the onion and water in terms of taste show his pedigree to me - he knows his onions so to speak.

i used to think the blending of the garlic & ginger in water (BE tip) made a difference but i tend not to bother now. i'm not saying it don't make a difference but it's not that significant when everything else is right.

He replied to me on my question about the G/G paste, and he said he will post the onion bhaji method soon - fingers crossed.

Lol

I'd go a lot further for the OB recipe if it's a good one.

It's a very good question. I still do think it's only a token gesture.

I watched this a couple of times
I don't think he says water is an ingredient, except to thin the finished sauce
That's why the onion mix reduces down to almost nothing
The only water used is with the blended garlic ginger
Am I right, or have I missed something
