Just a quick question. I've heard a lot of posters on here say that base sauce often resembles and even sometimes tastes like a bland soup. Would I be invoking the wrath of the Curry God if I used Heinz Cream of Chicken with Korma spices as a base?  Would this be doomed to failure?   http://www.tesco.com/groceries/product/details/?id=289622075   

Looking at the ingredients it contains Salt, Tomato Paste, Garlic, Ginger, Coriander, Cumin, Chilli, Paprika, Turmeric, Lemon Juice from Concentrate, Onion Powder, Fenugreek, Black Pepper, Stabilisers - Polyphosphates and Sodium Phosphates.

I very much doubt you'll get anywhere near the desired effect using the soup on its own as it's all about the magic of the onions and lots of them! That said, You could always use the soup as one of the elements. Say 10-20%.

I've always wanted to add a tin of Heinz tomato soup to a base instead of tinned tomato to see what that was like. Not got round to it yet but will do eventually...
