New Base Sauce
« on: March 31, 2011, 08:30 PM »
Really made this with some left over veg etc..
(Was going to make a stock but changed my mind).
Here we go

1 chicken carcass (ASDA already cooked and stripped)
3 medium onions chopped
1 medium carrot chopped
1 medium maris piper potato peeled and chopped
1 sweet apple cored, peeled and chopped
2 green chilli’s stalks removed cut in half
1 red chilli stalk removed and cut in half
½ green pepper chopped
½ tsp garlic chopped
2 tsp ginger chopped
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp cumin
1 heaped tbsp CA’s curry masala
2 medium fresh tomatoes chopped
Handful of fresh coriander leaves and stalks
3 pints of water.
METHOD
Place chicken carcass in a pot add ALL the water.
Then add ALL remaining ingredients and cook for about 2-3 hours on a low heat.

Was the apple noticeable in a discernible way and if so, will you use it again?

I used a really sweet apple (Gala) it worked well with the sweetness of the onions and (to me anyway) it just added that extra little flavour that i wanted but still got the heat.
Gave this (the madras) to 5 of my friends and they all liked it saying it was very,very moreish and they dont mince there words if it was crap they would definately say, with help from my curry tasters (25 friends) i get some really interesting comments some useful some not but i always take on board what everybody says to me.

You can't say boo to that, fair play to you. Incidentally, I know the IG add Lemon including the rind and pith to their base, I have you tried this and it does impart a certain sweetness. You might like to try that at some point, be careful not to add to much. I know JerryM has just done a few tests with this and was very pleased with the results.
