Chicken Tikka Massala Group Test
« on: April 12, 2011, 06:42 PM »
After some fantastic success with the starters group tests it is time to move onto the main event. I suggest we start with CTM, then do Madras followed by a chefs specials where anyone can nominate their all time favourite recipes.

Rather than having the usual big debate about which base to use and spice mix and brand of cream I suggest we decide on 4 or 5 recipes as a forum and then the judges can formulate a plan as to how best test them.

I have a fabulous recipe that will be making it's debut in this group test.

Please let me know if you are able to take part in this. Russ - I'm happy to host again if you are up for it!

Please can everyone also nominate their favourite CTM recipes to be in the test.

Thanks
Chris

Is it likely that pataks will feature in these recipes?

Hopefully we'll find a mix of Pataks and non-Pataks recipes to compare. It will be interesting to see the comparisons.

This one seems to have been forgotten.

I nominate:


I've never tried the above so I cannot vouch for them, but I think they're a good starting point.

Anyone got any more, or perhaps comments on whether the above should be included or excluded?

Hi

The above selection looks like a great balance between traditional vs pastes.

CA's recipe is very nice and one I have tried.

Micks is one I have been meaning to try for ages as it looks the business.

Dips recipe is a massive Patacks-fest so will be interesting to compare.

Cheers

That sounds like a good mix of recipes, plus I'll throw mine into the mix which uses paste but not to the level that Dips does. Its a nice half way house. How many people would like to be judges? It would be good to get at least 5 if possible.

Hi gazman1976

Have made this recipe myself a while back: http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=1823.msg49983#msg49983

This recipe does indeed produce a splendid CTM and should be included in these tests! - well pointed out :)
