hi
this was a great read!!!
i have always been weary of using too much oil and ended burning the spice a couple of times on my journey to curry perfection lol but i have a long way to go.
i have been a chef for 12 years now and i am dipping my toes into the curry world because i have learned so much in other cooking styles and felt i didnt have time to learn all curry/indian at the same time i now have the time to focus all my energy into cooking and learning this style of cooking. i cant wait ti get my teeth stuck into some of the recipes here :)

Hi Everyone,

I have had some excellent result cooking in a Kadai, especially on a Gas burner, excellent heat and cooking in the Kadai give plenty of surface area for the curry gravy to caramelize on the sides, scraping is very easy,
I have cooked 16 servings in one, and there was still plenty of room for scraping and movnig the curry around, (Exceptional results with Jalfrieze !!)

The concept of a curry base is totally new to me. (That must be why my saag always turned out so bland...)

My problem may be solved. Great tip on cooking smaller portions for 1 or 2, i have been cooking for 4 and sometimes or mostly results in a lacklustre curry. :thumbup:

Great info here, after taking a few years off the curry wagon, have climbed back on board and having a blast thanks to the contributions of many in the community. The videos CA has up on YouTube help you right through it.
