Damo’s Base Gravy

Post by Damo » Thu Nov 29, 2018 5:31 pm

Here is the base gravy I’ve settled on for now, this is actually version 6.

Boiling Stage:
1 Tbs Garilc/Ginger Purée (2:1)
9 Brown Onions
1 large (jacket size) potato
1 large Carrot
1 Bunch Coriander (30g)
1 Green Pepper
2 Bay leaves
400ml Vegetable Oil
1 Tbs Salt
Enough Water to just cover onions
————————————————-
Fry stage:
400g can of chopped tomatoes (blended)
1 Tbs Butter Ghee
2 Tsp G&G Paste (2:1)
2 Tbs Damo Spice (heaped)
1 Tsp Garam Masala

Usual story, everything chopped and in the pot before boiling then simmering for one hour+ until the onions become translucent.
Add the spices to the ghee and roast off before adding a can of (blended) tomatoes and 2 tsp G&G Paste.
Allow to simmer for 5-10 mins before adding the mixture to the main pot.
Return to the heat until the oil rises, Job done!!
Blend as finely as possible.

I do have a picture of the finished product but I don’t know how to share it, it won’t let me from my phone 😕
It says the files too big?
