Weekend Curryfest!

Post by litldevil » Fri Jul 28, 2017 3:19 pm

So excited (and hot! ) I just had to post.
We have friends over for an "Asian Day" tomorrow and I'm catering for 10, although I seem to have enough food for about 25. I was so inspired to try some of the awesome recipes on here that I've kind of just kept going.
Will try and get some photos of the session but to set you all up for the weekend curries... we're having
Chicken 65, onion bhajis, ( maybe mushroom too... still got some curry base left :lol:: ) Veggie samosas
Chicken Amlee, Shatkora, Lamb balti, Spiced creamy chicken curry with cashews, Sweet and sour pork, chicken with ginger and spring onion.
Naans, "fake poppadoms" ( I live in southern Spain and cooking those babies is not happening in 36 degree heat. The local shop has "crisps" that are incredibly similar to the texture and taste of poppadoms so we're faking that - apologies to the purists) Red onions, onion and coriander salad, raita and "red gloop" mint sauce and rice! :yahoo:

Tonight I make do with omelette...boooooooo

Can't wait for a pool day and fab food with good friends tomorrow, the nearest Indian is 40 minutes and honestly... it isn't very good :weep:

steveparadox, you are shaming us (and many good restaurants) with these pics, you are a man on a mission for curry perfection. Please take a break and allow the rest of us to catch up LOL!

Only joking, keep the pics coming, they're superb.

Nice bit of cooking GB, especially like the 4 pot thingy keeping it warm, very professional.

GB, why does the 4th pot appear empty - have you been guzzling before the photo could be taken?

Tonight I didn't make anything (we had steak and chips) but two days ago I made Kashmiri Chicken Dhansak and a Chicken Korma. The korma tasted good as soon as it was made and after two days in the fridge. I thought the dhansak tasted a bit too raw and spicy as soon as I had made it (a not uncommon thing if I have just been cooking) but it tasted tremendous a couple of days later, especially with naan. (Mind you, I was hungry and waiting for my steak and chips and stealing the food from the plates of my children so it was bound to taste better than if it were my own portion). I have noticed this before with the dhansak in that a portion cooked from frozen tasted really, really good.
"There is no such thing as too much oil; just an insufficiency of naan".

That's a great looking mix of dishes Gb - nice :thumbup:
A curry can never be ‘too garlicky’ or ‘too hot’ .....
