'If that resulting vindaloo tasted 100% BIR(which i'm sure it did),then the flavour 'Must' be coming from the base or the spice mix.
Failing that,the supernatural is at work.

I totally concur with that Wickerman. 

There appears nothing, at all, special about the "technique" used to prepare this dish.  If that's true (and I am sure it is, from observing the video) then the "BIR magic" must reside elsewhere (i.e. as you say, in the base and/or in the spice mix).

Mick - how did this vindaloo compare to those that you can cook at home please?  If there is a difference (e.g. in intensity of aroma and/or taste), then would you please be good enough to hazard a guess as to why?

Thanks,
Regards,

CA :)

This Vindaloo is one of the tastiest I have ever had.
There is a taste that is going on in the background that I cannot put my finger on, as it were.
There is a sweetness that I don't get in mine, not consistently anyway.
It is there if I have a plain curry, Madras or Vindaloo.
Given how simple the curry is I believe it is in the base, the base does have a sweetness to it.
Beyond that , at this stage I can't answer further.

Thanks Mick,

Strange (and elusive) isn't it?  ???

I also believe (and remain convinced) that it is in the base....and I'm (still!) determined to get to the bottom of it!  :P

Hi Mick,

As it happens I have made the base sauce tonight but it appears the video link has been removed for the vindaloo.  Do you happen to have an alternative link? The base by the way is tremendous!  ;)

I'm sure Mick won't mind my pointing you in the right direction.  Look forward to the pics and the report on the dish CCL.

Did anyone else notice that the pre-cooked chicken was sitting in its cooking liquor which also ended up in the Vindaloo?

Great selection of videos there CBM. Thanks for the link curryhell. Inspired me to do the chicken tikka vindaloo tonight with some left over blades tikka from last night  :D
Cheers
Steve

Edit: Quick question. Is the chef in the Chicken Tikka Vindaloo different from the one in the Little India Vindaloo vid? Noticed no garlic or ginger in the Little India Vindaloo?

Whenever I've left the precooked chicken in its cooking liquor in the past it's given it a slightly unpleasant flavour which is not there when just cooked. I've noticed this flavour in a few restaurants I've been to and it's therefore obvious that they also use this method.
Fighting for truth, justice and the BIR way!

Hi Steve,
Two different restaurants and chefs with slightly varying methods.
The Little India chef uses a garlic infused oil in this instead of garlic/ginger paste.
Cheers,
Mick
