I love Pathia so I'm dying to try this. I'm also quite a cooking noob so please forgive me when I ask:
What are these two ingredients: mix powder and base gravy?
Thank you,
Andy.

Absolutely delicious :yes:

I decided to give this another go tonight, this time I scaled it up for 4 people... so I varied the amount of ingredients somewhat - I doubled the tamarind and chilli in an attempt to tone down the heat and the bitterness factor, 3 times the sugar - too much, 2 times would have been better! as it seemed the sweet factor was a bit on the high side, not overpowering but still a bit too noticeable and also doubled the lemon. I only doubled the Naga and in hindsight this was a wise move! For the salt I stuck with the recipe original amount as posted. Anyway, here is a picture, the original recipe (for 1) was still definitely better than my attempt at multipiication!

They all look like fantastic curries guys, well done! :thumbup:
I’m liking the the look of that caramelisation on yours Damien, bet that is tasty (reminds me of a classic balti style curry). Good job. :yes:
