Postby Cory Ander » Mon Jun 12, 2017 12:31 pm

No particular recipe, but very simple;

  • vegetable oil
  • curry base
  • garlic and ginger paste
  • tomato paste/puree
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of spice mix + 1 heaped teaspoon of commercial curry paste (medium)
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of hot chilli powder +1 heaped teaspoon of "normal" chilli powder
  • a little cracked black pepper and salt
  • precooked roasted pork (leftovers from pork roast)
  • crushed dried fenugreek leaves
  • tiny amount of tamarind concentrate (i.e. the tip of a teaspoon)
  • a couple of drops of Worcestershire sauce (eeeeks! :cry:: )
  • splash of brown malt vinegar
  • a little sugar
  • A sprinkle of garam masala

I agree, Lee and Perrin's in moderation does add a little extra something.

Looks great and I think it would be a winner with chips (fries). I'd caution anybody to go real easy on the Worcestershire sauce since I once ruined a dish by putting too much of this in it. I would, however, suggest that upping the tamarind a bit tsp is likely to be OK since a Vindaloo is meant to be a bit bitter.

I agree with your comment about Worcestershire sauce, SB, too much (i.e. more than a few drops) can totally ruin a dish.

I find that the same is true with tamarind. I guess it depends on which type you're using. I use this one:

And more than a smidgen can also ruin a dish (to my taste, anyway). A quarter of a teaspoon is more than ample, I find. Otherwise, it's flavour predominates.

Worcester sauce? It's the future :thumbup:

I'm sure it tasted as good as it looks.

Tamarind (of which there are various forms) is a souring agent, Delly, so you would need to use an alternative souring agent (e,g. lemon/lime juice, vinegar, mango powder) instead. Also check out the threads in the Tamarind section of the forum.
