Love the little warming pots, and a lovely selection there. That pathia in particular is looking great!

Looks great andrw (especially since just "threw [it] together" :tongue: ). Which recipe did you use, for the chicken tikka madras, please?

PS: andrw's Doipaza photo (and replies) moved to the associated recipe thread (where it best belongs).

Hi Cory, this recipe is actually your chicken madras recipe. Apologies, for some reason I thought that I had already posted a pic of that curry in the recipe section a while back but it seems I was mistaken so I have added a better pic there.

I cook this curry regularly as it is my favourite and also happens to be fairly simple so I am able to 'throw' it together spontaneously after a long days hard work ;)

My eldest son & his girlfriend are coming to stay for the Bank Holiday weekend so it's going to be a busy Saturday curry night.
I've been making a batch of Blades Tikka & Naan Bread today & then found I was out of Ginger/Garlic paste. Peeling garlic is a job I don't like & my usual red skinned garlic wasn't in stock , so we have some white skinned that is hell to peel.

I've just finished making Pre cooked chicken, a full kilo. I admire the guys on the forum that do this commercially, I know I couldn't.

I've settled on :
Poppadums
Chicken Tikka
Chicken Vindaloo
Chicken Korma
Garlic Chilli Chicken
Butter Chicken
Pilau Rice
Naan Bread

Sounds like you have your hands full Pauly! I have avoided making BIR curries for large crowds (which to me is more than one other person) due to the amount of work involved and the lack of industrial equipment in my kitchen :nugget: . Good luck pauly :happy:

Snap, Dee (at least as far as my youngest diner is concerned). I had Aloo Muttar Paneer from odds and ends available in the kitchen.

Experimented a bit with a Korma and added some heat via extra hot chilli powder and pureed spinach to evolve it into what I've called a 'Chicken Chilli Korma Pardesi', It looked greener in real life, honest! It was absolutely magnificent I have to say, loved it so much that I made it again the next night, a new favourite, it has that coconut taste of the traditional korma but with the heat and spinach elements that satisfy the entire household. I think I've found myself a winner!

I know Chilli and Korma should never go together in the same sentence so I'm breaking all sorts of rules here but.... I am very pleased with the end result!

Traditionally, a "korma" can cover the whole spectrum of "hotness". Please feel free to post your recipe, in the relevant recipe section, for other members to try, Damien 8-)

Thanks for asking DamienD, all the curries turned out well & it was a great success. I've posted pics.

One the best things that came out, was an idea of my wife's to keep the curries warm as I cooked them, putting them in a hot water bath.

I like that idea DamienD. How much spinach? How much chili? Anything else? I'm not a big korma fan but moving it into related (and tastier) directions. That's a great thought...
