I justify my visits to HB on the basis that I am really going to Truro in order to visit Waitrose and the Great Cornish Food Store, and my visit to HB as I am passing is therefore purely co-incidental ...

I tried the lassi Phil and very nice it was too. I'd have to drink it with a good, hot curry though because it's too sugary for me on its own. I don't know how you manage to down one every day especially made with the extra-sugary Rubicon Deluxe Mango. With all that sugar and salt you eat, preserving your innards, you'll live to a hundred.

And don't forget the dripping in which I cook my roast potatoes, the 1/4" thick butter on hot cross buns & teacakes, and most important of all, the two or three 38gm tubes of Smarties I need on a more-or-less daily basis ...

But delighted that you enjoyed the lassi; it really is great, even if a bit sweet for you.  Perhaps add some amchoor to your next batch.

I've still got half a can of mango purée left. Honestly it seems like that bucket that constantly fills itself in the Disney Fantasia cartoon. It never ends. I'm going to use a bit in mint raita for poppadoms and onion bhajis but I don't know what to use the remainder for.

Try a recipe for mango lassi which doesn't use the Rubicon concoction. I don't want to offend Phil but, when I tried it, I thought it was awful, as well as unhealthy.

Did you try Rubicon Original, Rubicon Light, Rubicon (current) or Rubicon DeLuxe ?  For my money, only Rubicon (original, full-sugar, no longer available ) and Rubicon DeLuxe (the new name for original, full-sugar, Rubicon) are good, the others having reduced sugar and (probably) synthetic sweeteners.

P.S. "Unhealthy" in what way ?

It's been a while but I finally tried out some BIR cooking and this particular base. I was a bit skeptical at first but very pleased with the final dishes. Regularly making some batches now and using it in classic recipes too (e.g. instead of onion paste).

Will do some experiments with additional "red gravy" next.

Kris' base is very different to Syed's, but both are excellent for the style of cooking for which they are intended.  I now begin to wonder whether Syed's might be closer to BB1's than we have so far considered.

Made one small batch of the KD base today. Pic shows it in its final stage, almost finished.
