Shaaark!! Yo ma man! :boogy:I'm all gee'd up to get one on too! Got my bhaji's and chipatis in the freezer. Brought home some more snap top boxes, last week. Can't fukkin wait!

Ordered some more turmeric, this afters. Just came in from the kitchen, where I was fine adjusting my new shelves :D

It's nice too, because I can see light at the end of the tunnel now. I have 90% of the powders and seeds I'll ever need. I have the vast bulk of them jarred up. I have those jars on spacious shelves.  Ooh! I even have all my steel ware hanging up now!

Looking for a clear day, so I can more closely examine the pile of scrap wood I've thrown down. I suspect I might have what I need there now to make a chipati press.

  What am I talking about?! OMFG! That off cut of plank, down the shed?! That'll be fukking ideal!!! No wonder the gods have been constantly whispering to me;

" See that brand new, squeaky clean length of plank you keep looking at. Picking up. Putting down ....? " :toast:

Sounds good to me, mate. 👍

I found "just ingredients" expensive, check prices in the link I gave you (tradewinds turmeric, 100g, 55pence)

:icon_eek:  Neil; I, obviously, must have lost sight of that link, in all this helter skelter delirium.

I tend to get tunnel vision toward Amazon though. Simply because I have Prime and they're so fukking good to deal with.

Curry coming up, KD? :D

Got to admit; I fukked up on the water on these ones. I was trying yet another variation on the basic recipe. Sounds a good'n. But, as said, I had a brain fart and ballsed the water.

That led to an ultra sticky mess. That led to a shit ton more flour. But, I bottled it on more salt.

Result? They're okay. I've sat here and munched a couple. But, I Can leave them alone 😐 Salt, see? Just makes them fukking irresistible, when I get it right.

Vacuum seal them next. Bung them in the freezer. Stocks were running perilously low!

That'll about do me, for today. Been working like a well whipped nigger, for days, now. Probably make another shit ton of bhaji's, tomorrow. May double up and go for broke. Cram the freezer space.

Top Tip? Wear fukking disposable rubber gloves!!! Made it So Much easier and nicer, last time! Picking bits of onions off of sticky shit covered hands just takes the piss.

Oh! Beef Madras, chipati's and bhajis for dinner tonight! Fukk Yeah!!! :boogy:

Tell you what though mate, don't know if you've tried it yet, but I've been 'experimenting' with some 'fragrant' rices lately, with some of the milder curries, as a change from nan bread etc.

Some of them are really good.  Just another idea for you, maybe? 👍

Shaaark; In all honesty? I'm so enjoying the chapatis deal ~ trying to make them just right is a universal challenge in itself, I find! Just watching several dozen chubes of Indian people doing it doesn't make one an over night expert, sadly!

Oh! I had a mate in, yesterday. He, like the other one, was absolutely bowled over by my new kitchen shelving. But, when he saw my chapati press? He just about lost his shit! 🤣

He seems to think I'm some kind of genius, for making such a deadly accurate mechanism out of shit I literally picked up off my work room floor.

Dunno about genius. But, I'm certainly not Stupid enough to pay £130.00+ for one from India!

But, yeah, rice? It's just such a fukking bind, isn't it? Gotta make it practically to order. To the gram. Leave it alone too long and it can kill you?!

FFS! I can smack out a shit load of rotis. Bang them in the freezer and help myself, at will.

Al' does a nice recipe for pilau rice. Got it right here. Got the ingredients in the kitchen. But, rice has just lost its shine to me, somehow, just now 😐

I'm getting the fukking hang of this!!! :boogy:

 

P4200495.JPG.e07c398ef078014d32edd3afcca8d422.JPG

 

  Held together like a unit! I put nitrile gloves on, to mix it, once the egg goes in. Have a shit load of Gram flour sieved out and waiting. Saves so much drama! Pretty well nailed the temperature setting for the oil too.

These formed better than ever before. Size looks good. I'm well pleased! :D

 

Al's my fukking hero! Look where he's brought me, from sloppy, watery stews full of " Curry Powder " ~ and lamenting that I'd never eat another onion bhaji for the rest of my life. Because there's no Indian takeaways round here! 🤣

I Laugh at you, lost hope!!! 🤣

It's been an enjoyable journey, watching you progress mate. 👍

OMFG! Yesss!!! Tonight, I made Al's Beef Madras, again. As usual.

Al's big into chicken and lamb dishes? I can't afford lamb ~ who the fukk can?! And I'm just a bit of a stick in the mud. It's easier to just ask my butcher for " A bag of (beef) chunks ".

However, having tried this one a few times, I have to admit; It was lovely. But, just always missing that Pizass.

Also, as Al' says to make it in a pot, then reduce it to fukk and slow cook it? I just fry the onions. Add the spices. Then chuck the lot over the beef, in my Instant Pot. Comes out Awash!

So, today?

1. I fukked off the tin of coconut milk. That, effectively, halved the liquid. I've never used the yoghurt and cream he says. Simply don't have them to hand.

2. I paid closer attention, and realised why it was I had this jar of dried and chopped green chilli's on my shelf! Al' says four raw. I gave it my best shot with two teaspoons.

Muvva Fukka!!! That fukking worked!!! :icon_eek:

That looks really good mate,

Are you using ghee as your fat? I see the oil on top (love that, how it should be imo)...and ghee is the best for it in any curry...

I use Rapeseed oil ~ as was suggested, on this thread when I asked about oils :good: You? Neil? Mush'? Someone pointed me to it.

I also now have Atlantic Sea Salt. Threw the economy, no brand shit away. Is it me? Or can I taste a difference?!

Looks good mate...

Rice tip (my Mrs is good at it)...keep the water topped up all the time, keep it boiling hard, drain it when it still has some bite, put the collander over the saucepan with tinfoil and a tea towel over the top, leave it to steam like this for at least 10mins and it will be fluffy and sticky....better taking off the boil earlier than later...

 

Another to try, lamb shank, cheaper than most lamb cuts and amazing in curry....try it mate...

Have you got a blender? If you have try this method;

Put the onions, garlic, red pepper and any chilli peppers in the blender along with a heaped tea spoon of thick tomato puree and your spices. Add a glug of oil then whizz it all through. If it doesn't roll into the blender and sticks to the sides add a drop more oil a bit at a time until you blend a smooth paste.

Then chop another onion and some red pepper and put that to one side.

Put a couple of table spoons of oil in a frying pan and heat it on full whack for at least 30 seconds. Then scrape the paste in and cook on full heat whilst stirring  for at least two minutes, possibly more until you see the paste start to darken. You can freeze this to use later if you want to. Once defrosted heat up to frying temperature, stirring all the time.

Add your meat and stir it into the paste, turning it until all sides are browned. Then add the other onion and pepper and stir through. Gradually add coconut milk a bit at a time until you have the right consistency then stick in some washed lentils, chick peas, chopped potatoes or whatever you want. Stir them all in. Take that off the heat and scrape it into a slow cooker. Cook on low heat for two to three hours.

Naan breads; 150g plain flour, one teaspoon of baking powder, 2 teaspoons of curry powder, one teaspoon of cumin seeds, one teaspoon of salt and 150g of Greek or plain yoghurt. Mix it in a bread maker on dough setting or in a conventional mixer for at least five minutes. Then dust the work top with flour and roll into a sausage. Divide into four, dust with flour  and roll each one out using a rolling pin. Paint the tops of them with melted butter and stick under a hot grill until the just start turning colour then turn them over, paint that side with melted butter and grill that side. Once cool you can freeze them for later consumption. To re-heat them wrap them in foil and put them under a low heat in the oven for ten minutes.
