Dhillon's book is well worth picking up. You will not make authentic Indian
curries following his recipes, but rather those styles of curry dishes
commonly encountered in British 'Indian' curry houses. And that in itself
is a _Good Thing_.
Very small paperback volume that will fit, almost, in a shirt pocket.

Good recipe can't wait to try it, the blending of the onion mixture is
maybe where I have gone wrong in past!

This is a good sauce. I think I have improved it by blending 3 small green
chillis (deseeded) at the ginger and garlic stage and adding half a tsp of
ground coriander and a tsp of fenugreek at the turmuric and paprika stage.

I bought his book and lost it somewhere but his recipie for this base mix
is the real deal. the base mix when done seems thin but when it hits the
hot cooking oil/ghee in the next process it amazingly thickens.

with it tonight.

don't forget that this is a 'base sauce'. the recipes in the book call for
the base sauce plus other spices. before adding spices to the base sauce,
i would advise following the recipes to get the 'authentic' British curry

had the same book years ago, i found the base sauce excelent but, to make
it almost exactly like a takeaway/restaurant i would add (at the
turmeric/paprika stage) 1/2 tspoon ground fenugreek, 1 tbl spoon garam
masala and 1 tspoon black pepper. This gives near perfect results. Also,
any recipe using the base sauce that requires chilli powder i found i
generally doubled the amount of chilli powder. hope this helps. enjoy!!

Nice to find so many fellow Dhillon enthusiasts; for those who find the
dishes a little oily, try heating up a bit less oil first,then lightly
frying the spices in it before adding the onion mix to the pan.
Just realized I've been making this magic sauce base for twelve years!

Love the curry secret book!
My no.1 tip is to preheat a slowcooker and when i make the garlic, ginger
water to the onion i add boiling hot water- then add it to the slow cooker
and cook it in my outdoor laundry room as it is STINKY!

I would also recommend a book by Mick Crawford called British Indian
Restaurant Cooking (just type in currybarkingmad into google) very
authentic restaurant/takeaway recipes.

This book which i discovered around 7 years ago is the absolute curry
bible. After years of trying the mainstream books and usually being
disappointed, it was a revelation. You can add your own little variations
to the recipes as desired but they are very good as they are. Also
surprised to find out the author was a woman.Nothing wrong with that!
