If it really was olive oil though Jerry you couldn't get it that hot without ruining it surely?

Vindaloo-crazy,

u can't tell any difference between veg oil and olive oil when frying it for curry. i even use it for omelet (for the kids). alas i'm off the omelette's down to watching cholesterol - hence how i came to use olive oil so much in cooking generally. i buy in the big tins so price is not that much more than veg oil.

please note that i only use olive oil for frying when stuck - i use veg oil all the time normally as i reclaim it from the base

It's pricey stuff too Jerry, I'm surprised the taste doesn't come through; must be all the spices?

i cooked the utube jalfrezi and admins jalfrezi side by side last night (Nb i used mix powder in both so utube was technically not to spec calling for curry powder - see below). i think either the methi or utube sequential spice frying technique caused the dish to be darker than i would normally produce (i use 1 chef of base to fry the spices and add them all in 1 go)

the taste of both dishes was very close - restaurant quality for sure. we preferred the Admin recipe but lovers of methi would go for the utube.

i then cooked admins jalfrezi with mix powder and admins jalfrezi with curry powder side by side. the dishes were surprisingly very close.

a bit of a shock though - we preferred the curry powder dish at it seemed to bring out the taste of the other ingredients better. i need to try curry powder out on a few more dishes as the result could have just been fluke.

They look great. Doesn't the undercover book advocate curry powder not mix powder?

Vindaloo-crazy,

yes - it must be the spices that stop the olive oil taste coming through - i only use cheep stuff (7? for 5L).

yes - the undercover book does i believe suggest curry powder - as i say quite a shock to me and needs a few others to give it a try and confirm or otherwise.

Jerry, I don't want to put you off using whatever oil you wish but have a quick look at this link about olive pomace oil http://www.food.gov.uk/multimedia/faq/pomaceoilfaq/
its a bit off putting IMO :(

Rob.

edit: just noticed it references Spanish oil so you are probably safe if its produced elsewhere
;D  Don't drink and cook - its not big and its not clever  ;D

I have noticed, not only in this video but others from the kitchens in the BIR`s that they use the same amount of spices for one portion as we would use for a 2 or more.. any thoughts on that...

Fi5h, I don't reckon this is for real. It's just a show clip to advertise the restaurant.
