I concur gazman. Being in Oz I won't be able to ship any of the "secret" spice mix over. Hopefully ifindforu will share the secret of the spice mix for free, just like many others on this wonderful free site has shared their knowledge for free including some authors of books and BIR chefs. After all that's what this site is all about unlike the other one that was about making money!

I nearly made this base on New Year's eve. Foolishly I started at 9:00 pm and by midnight the first stage was done and it was ready for the baghar the next morning. I left the pot (covered) in my out house overnight and it was about 6 degrees so I wasn't too bothered. The next morning I couldn't face stinking the house out as we were doing a traditional family buffet so I found my largest 4.5 litre tupperware container (it was a tight fit) and I froze the lot.

I'll get this made up and tested sometime during the week although the entire 4.5 litre frozen base could take time to defrost.

I've made it to spec so far but I'm a bit concerned about the 2:1 ginger/garlic ratio making the base taste too gingery. I appreciate that mostly garlic is added during the final cooking of dishes (3:1 garlic/ginger) so this might even up the score. But I am tempted to use 1:1 g/g for the base just so I don't have to bin the lot. I'd appreciate any opinions on this as I've made meals inedible (for me anyway) in the past by using too much ginger, and of course it can't really be removed.

Cheers,

Paul

Thinking about it there's no way that half a chef's spoon of g/g paste at 2:1 ginger/garlic will make this amount of base taste overly towards ginger, so I'll stick to the recipe.
