Experiment = VindaMasala ? (But Better).
« on: December 31, 2005, 12:03 AM »
Here is a very mild experimental Chicken Curry (You can add more Chillies or Chillie powder for extra heat if you wish)? i cooked today & it tastes bloody ace !
Give this a go you wont be disappointed.

Warm up 1.5 Litres of my Base Gravy Recipe in a medium pan = http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=673.0

INGREDIENTS.

4 Tablespoons Olive Oil.
1 Medium or Large Onion (chopped, medium/fine).
1 Teaspoon fresh Chillies.
Half Desert Spoon Paprika.
"""""""""""""""""""? Curry powder.
"""""""""""""""""""? Garam Masala.
"""""""""""""""""""? Cumin.
"""""""""""""""""""? Fennel Seeds.
"""""""""""""""""""? Cumin Seeds.
"""""""""""""""""""? Turmeric.
"""""""""""""""""""? Fenugreek Leaves (chopped,dried variety).
"""""""""""""""""""? Salt.
"""""""""""""""""""? Bassar Mix.(Excellent alternative to Chillie powder).
300 Grams Passatta.
4 TableSpoons of dried chopped up Almonds (same ones used for cakes etc...)
4 """""""""""""" of dessicated Coconut.

METHOD

In a large pan put the Olive Oil, Heat on medium High & fry the chopped Onion till Golden.
Add the heated Base Gravy & all ingredients,make sure its all heated through, put to one side.
Cook some Chicken using my method .............
 Chop 3 chicken breasts into even pieces (i cut to the size of a ?2 pound coin = width,height).?
Boil a kettle.
Put chicken in pan.
Pour boiled water over chicken to just cover it.
Bring water to boil turn down immediately & slowly cook on simmer for about 4 minutes.
Look for one of the biggest pieces take out & cut in half to make sure its cooked through.
put the cooked Chicken in the set aside cooked Curry & take 2 large Ladles of the cooked Chicken water & also put in the set aside Curry.
Done !!!!!!!!!!
This has made a fine whatever it is Curry & it tastes great.
I will be having it tomorrow with Plain Nan Bread & Dabari Rice (with Dessicated Coconut on top mmmmm!!).

Please try this as it is a very fine all round Curry & can be a hot or mild as you like without altering the essential Curry flavor itself.?

Just had this for New Years Eve Tea & it is one of the best Curries I've made, & the most oddest thing about it is that it had a hint of the taste but in small pockets,especially in the chicken? :o (I've had this before in the Curry but not the meat, & i think someone else had the same phenomenon).
Has anyone got a theory about this as it may help us all get the Taste in every part of the Curry.
I would like someone to give this recipe a try, trust me you will love it & cook it all the time. ;).
Remember both base & the Curry itself were made using Light Olive Oil. ;)
Right I've got two Bottles of Champagne for tonight,i wish you all a Happy new Year & lets crack this taste thing will be our new years resolution  ;).

Thank you for your kind & positive feedback CC.
I thought you'd like it, ;) did yours turn a very flavorsome dish & not at all to hot ?
I will be making it again very soon as i think its one of my best experiments yet.
What shall we call it? :-
Unsure wether next time i should leave out the Almonds as they get a little lost amongst all that flavor .

Yours DARTHY .... ;D (This smiley has a smug enough look).

Darth have you ever had a tikka masala before because This doesn't sound anything like a CTM?  No marinade, yogurt, sugar, cream etc..

Yes i have & its a rather mild/sweet rich Curry, if you read my post (please but don't take it too literally, a bit like some BIR's making a Madras hotter than a Vindalloo !! :)) it is an experimental dish all of my own making,this is what i think a Tikka Masala should taste like as i personally find Kormas & CTM's too rich & sickly, this is not.
I have omitted several ingredients of my own choice,have you tried this recipe ? As it would pleasantly suprise you.
Perhaps the name of the post is a little confusing but its been tried by some & viewed by many.
Give it a bash mate & let me know what you think. ;)

All in all ,one thing you can give me credit for is i don't wait for others to do all the work, i get into the Kitchen & dooo it !!!!! ;D

Hi Darth -
I varied slightly from your recipe :) - I ground whole almonds to a fine texture , coconut powder and a splash of lemon . The end result was a rich and tangy dish with just the right amount of heat . Perhaps you could name this dish " VINTINKORMA "  :D
