Dhansaks are the best curry
Doesn't have a signature anymore
I'm currently making a Lamb Rogan Josh. Ginger, crushed garlic, loads of onions, cinnamon, nutmeg, corriander, cumin, tumeric, garam masala, cardamoms, paprika, peri chillie, bit of salt n pepper, bay leaf and greek yoghurt all mixed. Currently simmering on the hob whilst I have a glass of wine. Smells bloody great actually, just a bit. Think will add a twist of lemon though next time.
Made a chicken Balti for my woman yesterday, with green and red peppers. Love curries!
I dont really follow recipes. Tend to chuck in anything in the cupboard. My fave is: little oil, cook mustard seeds until they start to pop, chuck in chicken strips, then ginger, garlic, grated onion, red chilli (bhut jolokia ), garam masala, tumeric, cardimon pods, couple tins of chopped tomatoes and simmer for 20 mins. Boil rice with a couple of cloves.
I do a mean Chili and Garlic beef
king prawn madras, pilau rice and garlic naan.

Curry is the one thing I've never been able to make myself as good as it is from a takeaway
Usually just cheat and end up buying the pastes from Tescos and then adding a few bits to it along the way.
Takeaway-wise tho, you can't go wrong with a dhansak or pathia.
agree, it's great.

agree with the purist on this as well, can never quite get home made to taste anywhere near as good as takeaway.
BTW poppadums with those little sauces, onions etc is the best starter i can imagine, love that stuff.
this. bung it all in and see what happens!
