trayce can you paste link to the video with a space in it to stop the autoembed? "an error occurred"

i am in the middle of rearranging/jarring all my various spices and seeds and it's a mess. i had too many bags in the cabinets.

The base technique there of ghee, frying off seeds, then onion, then spices, then tomato, is (I'm assured by my indian coworkers) basically the base for any curry.

Without being able to see the video I can at least agree with that statement! I did an Indian cuisine cooking class a couple of months ago and the one useful thing was the chef showing us 3 ways of bringing out spice flavors: bloom in ghee (for curry sauce), add to a liquid & simmer (dal), and...I forgot the third one but it must have involved the rice because that's the other thing we made.

Anyway the curry was boring as. She admitted it was just a "base" to be tailored by regional & family preferences.

can vouch for meera sodha's books as great curry recipe tomes; made in india is a bit better than her purely-veg fresh india, and has lots of great veg recipes too.

this is pretty much how every curry i make or attempt begins, cannot make any claims for their authenticity but they are often really nice! (Onion section is often a slurry of blitzed onions/garlic/ginger)

one month passes...

i made chicken tikka masala and a spinach-onion pilaf both from 660 curries

the sauce for the tikka masala was a bit too sweet. i did make my own mistake by putting in one can of tomatoes instead of one CUP of tomatoes. but it has raisins in it (blended up with everything). the marinade is very good. i added lemon juice. pilaf is good, would make again. probably try a different CTK recipe next time but not bad or anything.

CTM obv
the raisininess is not a bad combo with the hotness of the marinade, it's growing on me
