Everything on this forum seems to use oil as the cooking agent. Having just trawled around tescos I noticed ghee in the Indian foodstuff section. Does ghee add anything to taste etc above oil ?

Quite a lot of information on using various oils (vegetable oil, vegetable ghee, butter ghee, etc) in the Chat About Oils section of the forum, Berkshireboy. Butter Ghee v Vegetable Ghee v Oil may be of particular interest to you.

Made my first ever BIR Vindaloo using the BIR Curries video recipe on You Tube. The video gave excellent step by step instructions, and the end result - Fabulous.

Keep them coming.

I've just joined as I love my curries! Looks like an easy recipe to follow thanks to the well written guide. I've also just got hold of fenugreek leaves and Cassia bark to complete my spice collection so it's onwards and upwards to experimenting!

Try making a double lot and freezing the excess ... saves a job next time you fancy a curry fix :thumbup:
A curry can never be ‘too garlicky’ or ‘too hot’ .....

I've missed doing this! But I've also developed a very nice Naga Lime Pickle.
