I know what you mean already about exposure and wanting more of it, thinking now what to put it in it as it was nice and the smell after was looming for ages in a nice way. :) Some hot pot stew should be lovely.

Thanks for the warning.

Going to be doing your Madras to spec next but my local grocery only has Deggi Mirch by MDH which I believe is still kashmiri. I was reading how you can't find it (deggi mirch) but here we have 400g 100g boxes to choose from. Should be a decent substitute until I can find Kashmiri or get them to pick me some up?

Hi Chewy,
                 I can't thank you enough for this recipe. Tonight I made a prawn madras, using your base gravy, and it took me right back to the late 70's. This was one of the first dishes I had in a BIR and I really didn't think I would be able to replicate anything like it.
I used bog standard chilli powder so I reckon I could maybe improve it next time by using Kashmiri chilli powder.

Thanks a million.

I tried to post a picture but it wouldn't let me.

Hi GA
Nice one!
Kashmiri Mirch is just my quirk, as I've grown to obsess on the flavour.
Ordinary chilli powder works fine, as you say.

Glad you got good results and thanks for the feedback.
cheers Chewy ;)

Seemed to have difficulty posting the link for Chewys vid in the piccy section so will post again here.

Very happy!  I followed the recipe exactly to spec (with c2go bangla base).  Came out looking spot on, but as usual for me not much oil separation.  To be honest I have always struggled to get this, and the flocculated appearance like what you get from some TA saucey dishes; madras, vindaloo, etc.  I am sure its my halogen hob.  Difficult to control and up high all of the sauce splatters out of a standard ally chefs pan.  So I have been keeping the heat down. Until now!  Followed Cheweys vid and put a glass vented lid (from a saute pan) on top.  It didnt fit well, too small, so ended up transferring the sauce to the saute pan itself.  Put the lid on and cranked up the heat. 

Some serious bubbling happened quickly.  In a minute or so I was amazed to see the oil separating; not just a little either.  I could not stop watching it.  After perhaps 6 mins or so I turned off the heat and took off the lid to have a proper look.  The steam had been venting through the hole like a good un, but had expected to find there had been little in the way of reduction; next problem. But no. At about 50 percent I had actually overdone the reduction!  On pouring the sauce into a tray it dawned on me that this was like a new beginning for my home curry cooking.  This sauce is the nearest think to TA BIR I have made.  In fact, its better than many. The taste was just unbelievable, and that aroma!   A big breakthrough for me.  Already looking for an ally pan to fit the lid, or vice versa. Thanks again CR0, and especially Chewy.
