Chris,

I will be interested in this test as i have never made a bombay aloo before, so have no preconcieved ideas of what these recipes are going to taste like.

regards

Alan ;D

Hi Guy's,

Just my two penneth,

I do think most BIR, Aloo recipes derive from the Bombay potatoe but traditionally, Saag Aloo, Bombay Aloo, Aloo Palak, Aloo Gobi and so on, are really all quite different.

For instance, I've seen many traditional Bombay Aloo recipes that require no garlic :o

Just thought I'd share that with y'all ;D

Ray :)

For what it's worth I don't think the recipe I posted would be regarded as BIR - more home cooking = it doesn't contain any base and is dry - if you wish to include it go ahead by all means but just thought I'd point that out.

Hi Solarsplace
Sorry your not feeling well

Is this right that the onion and pepper only has 20 seconds of fry time and 1 min in the sauce? Won't that be a bit raw or is the pepper and onion pre-cooked?

Hi chriswg

Ha!!, fast and furious! I'll never make a recipe writer...
Simply adjust the timing to suit your own judgement.

But I do dice the onions small, about 5mm and I salt them
which breaks them down and helps cook them quickly.

Here's a random vid using prawn, with the same bhun method of cooking.

Hi chewytikka

Thanks for the kind words!

I love the video :) - it is always fascinating to watch the professionals work!.

What I dearly want to know, is how the pan on the right is not splattering molten bubbles of sauce and oil over a massive radius like it always does in my kitchen ;)

Also remember that the type of potatoes will influence the final dish
Waxy v floury, and how they are pre-cooked.

So, is the list currently looking like this?

  • Solar's
  • 976bar's
  • ChewyTikka's
  • UC
  • Dip's

Once finalised, it is probably worth updating the OP with the list and links to to recipes.

Hi Solarsplace

Don't let the vid fool you, the range gets covered with debris when the
service gets manic and non stop!
Cleaning down is part of the process and is quite obsessive in this kitchen,

At home, I use a lid, to try and reduce the mess.

Great little video there Chewy,
BTW won't using a lid just keep recycling the water that you are trying to boil off?
Cheers,

Yes, I think that looks like a good selection. Solar is going to post his updated version. Once we have the final 5 I'll update the OP with the correct links.

It looks like we have lots of willing testers so we should get some very accurate results!
