CBM Little India Chicken Vindaloo
« on: April 25, 2012, 09:06 PM »
Hi All,
I have finally managed to get round to editing the Chicken Vindaloo video from Little India.
Chef Baba's Vindaloo is quite a simple affair with no great surprises.
I hope you enjoy the video.
Clink on the link below.
Cheers,
Mick

Quite surprising how brief the cooking of the powdered spices and Tom paste is, given the pan seems cold to begin. Mind you, that's a powerful burner I guess and the Tom purée darkens quickly. Simple recipe as you say.
"Don't burn the spices" is the most dangerous truism of all - because it's incomplete. It should be "Don't burn the spices but do cook them!"
You'll never make BIR if you're too cautious frying your spices.....

Another good video Mick.  He makes it look so simple.  In fact it seems very "slowboat" with the exception of the tomato paste / spice frying which is done very quickly and not with a huge flame either :-\.  I wondering how tasty that vindaloo actually was?  I like the addition of the "chicken stock" for added flavour.
So singe baby singe, the curry's getting better ..........

Anyone watching any video or looking at any photo obviously could question the final taste if it differs from what they believe gives a  certain taste but I can only tell you it tasted great mate, good flavour and a terrific punch and the restaurant sells a lot of them.
It is worth remembering his base gravy is very tasty in it's own right and this shows through in the reduced finished curry.
Cheers,
Mick

Hi Mick
Great Video once again.

Can I ask if that was Methi leaves or powder?

I'd always presume leaves, but it just didn't look like them, to me, when added in the vid. :-\

Cheers

Hi CBM, i do like watching the videos you post on here, with the ingredients on the video itself, it helps a lot when actually cooking that certain dish, helping you by knowing when, how and length of time to cook certain ingredients. Also when writing the recipe down as well it makes me pay that little more attention.

I do the same thing by using my own garlic oil when making a vindaloo because you need a very smooth sauce, well in my region any way, West Midlands.
Also he's not shy with the chicken.
Cheers.

Hi mick,

Are you setled on all the curries you make now or do you still experiment with different bases and recipes posted on here (and elsewhere) such as the recent zaal experience and the C2G stuff, and whilst it's being discussed on another thread, can you get consistant results?

Apologies if its off topic but as its your thread, maybe it'll be excused this time ;)

Hi Wayne,
I do still experiment quite a bit,
There are some things that come along that I don't try just because I know there is nothing new in it for me or I have tried it before along my curry journey.
But as I have said elsewhere....the learning continues. :)
Cheers,
Mick
