Since spending a week cooking a ton of curry and starters for my 60th birthday bash, then eating up the leftovers afterwards, i haven’t fancied a curry since. it’s been 3 weeks since my birthday and i still can’t get excited about curry. So I made a big pan of warming fiery chili.

Here are some pics of the curry foods i made for my party (there was rather a lot):

Bloody hell @AlanJ thats a veritable banquet!

I’ve made the Bhuna a few times in the last couple of weeks. My favourite so far has been roast cauliflower, butter beans and lentils. Roast squash isn’t too far behind though.

The real trick with it is not to stir and to let it burn a little on the pan between the gravy stages.

I think I could genuinely fool a punter in a blind test comparing with our local curry houses.

yep deffo let it burn a bit. i wish i had my old gas hob instead of an electric one. gas is much better for cooking curries. (even if it is expensive 😂😂)

Amazing Al! how long did that lot take to make?
Love the onion bhajis/somosas etc. I really should try making some, I just don't like deep frying anything.

It took a couple of weeks to be honest. I rarely make samosas and pakora etc because of the deep frying, but it’s a must to get them tasting right.

Finally got my curry mojo back after august’s mammoth cooking session.

Samosas and bhajis

Wherever I make samosas I usually have some filling left over, so I make this into bhajis. Just add gram flour and rice flour to the samosa filling, stir it up and deep fry blobs of the mixture.

I had some friends round recently and they were asking me where to get large pans to cook curries in, I showed them this: cheap as chips £12 delivered, and they also have even bigger ones at good prices too.

That’s Christmas sorted!
