Lovely pics & a beautiful spread of food CA .

I particularly like the one of the Madras in the pan, classic looking BIR curry.

When you say steamed pilau rice, how does that differ from the usual boiling method ?

Is that the first time you've used Tikka in a Vindaloo, was it a success ?

Hi pauly,

Thanks for your comments & questions 8-)

I've been playing with cooking my rice in a (vegetable) steamer:
Steamer
Steamer
So it's literally cooked in the steam (generated by the steamer). Not particularly BIR, but it's fun to try these things and it works well. It is also pretty much a "fool-proof" method:

I wash the rice and put it into a plastic storage container (i.e. the type in which you might store curry base), add some whole and powdered spices, ghee, oil or butter and some milk and water (i.e. to just cover it). Then steam it, for around 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until all of the water/milk has been absorbed. I add some food colouring (e.g. yellow, red) towards the end (i.e. when the grains have elongated and dried a bit). I then turn it all off and let it sit, for a bit, before stirring and serving.

Regarding Chicken Tikka, yes, I've used it for donkeys years, in vindaloo, madras, phal, jalfrezi, etc. It works a treat. I froze much of the above to turn into subsequent Chicken Tikka curries (of whatever persuasion)......

Tikka vindaloo looks excellent, as does all of it to be honest! :love:.

Your naan breads look really good - would you mind linking to the method/recipe?

P.S. Have you tried adding Naga pickle to the tikka marinade? It makes everything better! :):

Hi David,

I've added links, to the recipes, in my opening post.

For the garlic, fenugreek & coriander naans, I just brushed them with butter, garlic paste, crushed dried fenugreek leaves and chopped fresh coriander.

No, I haven't tried adding naga pickle to tikka marinade.....

Ah thanks for the pointer - I missed the naan link.

I've now had a quick look and there are 104 posts so I'll need to come back to it to read them all... it appears naans are controversial! :laugh:

I'll post my recipe on there later... yours look great though so I'll deviate from my recipe next time and give them a go :thumbup: .
