    Indian

    Just cooked myself an Indian style curry for tomorrow nights dinner and the missus's lunch tomorrow.

    1 Medium Onion
    4 Cloves garlic
    1 inch or so of ginger
    2 green chillis
    1/2 tsp tumeric
    1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
    1 1/2 tsp ground coriander seeds
    1 tsp paprika
    1 tsp dried chilli
    1/2 tsp garma masala
    salt as needed
    handful of dried birds eye
    two chicken breasts
    tomato puree or paste

    Add oil to the pan ( I use olive oil) and heat it up

    chop the onion and sweat it on high for 5 minutes

    add the chopped garlic, ginger and chilli and stir on high for 30s

    Reduce the heat to low and stir occasionally for 15 minutes

    add the spices and make sure they don't burn. Stir for another 5 minutes.

    Remove from the heat and place in a blender with about 120 mls water ( I use concentrated tomato paste so I add another 60 mls of water)

    Put on low blend and leave it running.

    Heat up some more oil and throw in the handful of whole dried chillis (minus the stalk, it's a bitch too pull them out when hot oil is spitting) and the chicken.

    Seal the chicken in and let the chillis expand then remove from the heat.

    By this point your blender should have done its job and be ready to go.

    Make sure the pan has cooled down before adding the sauce (you don't want it to burn).

    Add the sauce and put it on a low heat so that it bubbles and spits every five minutes or so. Give it a stir when this starts to happen.

    Leave on for about 40 minutes or more till the sauce has darkened. Add the garam masala and stir it in. Cook for another 20 minutes.

    add salt as you feel necessary.

    remove and eat immediately or cool and save for tomorrow.

    Bugger it's in the fridge I'll get a photo later.

    The recipe is made up from two or three I have tried over the last few weeks.

    They all turned out shite. This is my own mix from them taking the bits that worked and leaving out the bits that didn't

    It's also nearly a one pot recipe which is good for me since I still only have on hot cooker all in one thing.

    No yoghurt no.

    Was pretty good, not spicey enough though.

    I will butcher a few more recipes this weekend and combine them to make another one for next week.

    Every time I try a curry recipe it fucks up. I try a couple more then have to pull the bits that worked out and use them.

    ^ my missus absolutely 100% refuses to eat indian food ( men maak, mai aroi! )

    drives me nuts that attitude, I love it - but as a result dont get enough chances to eat it.

    **interesting note: she has just a late night som tam, jaysus that stuff smells...... lol**

    My roommate (from Tamil Nadu) and I made some masala chicken for dinner. On the weekdays, I might fry up a few dosas and he'll make some homemade sambhar. He makes a great cup of masala tea also. The American guy that used to live with us left because he couldn't stand the smell of fresh, homemade Indian food. Stupid barbarian.

    To make authentic Indian food, you need to buy a Prestige Pressure Cooker and use Indian rice (slightly different taste from Thai rice and less sticky). If you are in Thailand, you might be able to get this at the Piruhat Market.

    I'll remember to take some pics next time we cook.

    Yep, the main problem is that Thai rice doesn't do well when you put it in the fridge for some leftovers the next day....and there is nothing nicer than waking up and finding a leftover curry in the fridge...ready to eat...cold

    I have just had a cold curry sandwich from a Potato and Broccoli Rogan Josh I made laste night...although i cheated cos I got me mum to bring me over some Pataks Curry paste as I'm lazy
