pathia sauce
« on: February 21, 2012, 11:39 PM »
anyone using a pathia sauce which is lentil based, can only see hot and sour types on here which is not pathia where I am from.

I am damn close with my recipe but its not quite there yet.

I have to confess I've never come across lentils in a Pathia before - if you took the lentils out of this recipe you would have something that comes close to what I regard as a Pathia.

shephen, to be honest most recipes i see offer pathia as a hot sour sauce or some description like that.

if you scroll to 114 the description for pathia, I think I am going to try it with less lemon and tamarind and to add more garlic to see what affects this has.

I see what you mean about the lentils - this is not something I've come across here (Dundee, Scotland) but my brother lives in Sunderland and I know you have lots of curry houses there so it must be a regional thing. I don't make Pathia with tamarind or lentils but do use lemon juice and mango chutney.

I don't think my own recipe will be exactly what you are looking for but you might find the text and method of use to you in developing your own recipe:

I've also posted a subsequent recipe using the Taz base which is my current base of choice:

good luck!

Shephen,

cheers for that, will certainly look in to that, personally I will eat anything apart from korma .

I agree about regional because curries I have had in the midlands and london (to me) are not a patch on sunderland and south shields curries.

I guess over 15 years of eating of eating a north eastern curry your taste buds get used to a set taste.
