I just use vegetable oil - as Madhur Jaffrey suggests in place of ghee. - never cooked a curry with ghee ever. Curries still taste good.

Stop nitpicking Harry you old trout.

not nitpicking gq.is a lasagne without pasta a lasagne no,is lancashire hotpot with chicken lancashire hotpot? no is a samber without lentils & lemon a samber? no is jalfrezi without peppers jalfrezi? no
it is a fundamental part of the dish that differentiates a basic batch cook stock gravy from a jalfrezi
madhur jaffrey was,by her own admission(like delia) a good homely cook,not a chef,she adjusted dishes for european tastes.

Gravy Queen,

Good Evening and yes, I shall scan the photo of the dish on Tuesday. My daughter Naia left at 7am for Zürich, and had got up literally at 4am, to go with her to the Bari Airport ...

I am interested in the product you mention and we have a Food Land in Madrid, which is an Indian Wholesale and Retail Indian Market ...

*** What are Pataks Kashmiri ?

All my best,
Margi.

Kashmiri is another paste made by Pataks Margi, they do a wide range. I have tried recreating Kashmiri curry myself but it wasnt the same, so I'm going to cheat again and use Pataks.

I'm surprised by all the positive comments for Patak's. Blecch! Patak's is the Indian equivalent of hamburger helper or Prego pasta sauce.

Do all of you really find fresh spices to be so much trouble? I cook Indian 2 or 3 times a month. Once you buy your spices, they last quite awhile and are cheaper and vastly better tasting than buying sauce that comes in a jar.
