I made this base tonight. The taste is pretty amazing given the short time cooking. This might become a new favourite.

Was a bit too generous on the salt during the final stages (recipe kind of stated "more salt and sugar gives more flavour") so it ended up rather salty. I might start over adding the salt only in the final stages AFTER the all seasoning, whose main ingredient is salt too.

Anyway, a true winner based on the first curry I tried. Looking forward to trying other recipes with this!

Ive never tried this base.
IFFU's posts are always a good read.
I have noticed that a lot of base recipes - particularly the more "authentic" ones always over season the gravy.
Depending on the volume made, I never add more than 1 Tblsp salt. You can always add more later!

Cheers

That's very much true! I chucked out the my batch of yesterday and made a new one today. It really was too salty. Good thing is that this base only takes about 2 hours to make, cleaning included.

I have added only pinches of salt where it was asked for and then added three teaspoons APS at the end. Still comes out quite salty (I usually hardly eat any salt, that will certainly play a roll). It's rather the aftertaste this time and the base itself does not taste overly salty when I just slurped it. So my advice would be to really be careful with the APS on this one.

I'm considering making my own APS version without salt for the next batch. In the meantime, this batch is going into the freezer. Looking forward to make some curries with this!

EDIT: added picture of the base. I got 12x 350ml, which is usually the amount I use for a curry for 2 to 3 persons.

Hi all
I haven't been on this site for so long I can't remember, nice to see it is still up and running. I still use this recipe for my base sauce (slightly modified) and for me it's still the best base sauce recipe.

Regards,

Chas

I tried this the other day. Although I halved the inclusion of coconut and modified the cooking technique slightly (made a baghaar with garlic, ginger and spices as opposed to boiling them). It's well up there with the best of them.
