Now, I love a good old curry/ruby murray/bundy whatever you choose to call it. I think my favourite has to be a garlic chilli chicken mossala, or lamb vindaloo. There are a lot of wierd and wonderful Indian dishes out there so what is your favourite?

I also like to partake in a chapati with my curry, can't eat naan bread they are too big, but what do you have as an accompaniment, if at all?

Lastly, what do you consider to be the perfect beverage to have with a curry, I like Kingfisher, Cobra or Strongbow.

And what is your colloquial name for a curry?

RR'ers ... its over to you.

Being from Sarf London its known as a Ruby mate!!

I like to have a Chicken Sag massala with a Peshwari Nan as a rule as its the dogs bollocks!!!. Not literally I hope!!

It always washes down nicely with a Kingfisher or Cobra beer after a night on the town!!

Tough call on favourite curry Stix - my last one was a Pasanda from Ali's last week, which was a tad too mild for me (I'm still experimenting).

Go along with the Kingfisher or Cobra, but speaking as a cider drinker normally, Strongbow with a ruby sounds wrong to me! A bottle of Matlot's Rose goes down quite nicely for a change from beer.

I'm not a mega fan, but don't mind a small plate. I do love the starters and pakora is the dogs bollocks and winner for me.

Vegetable Madras (I'm not a lesbian or whatever they call non meat eaters; I just like spiced veg, especially cauliflower and potato)

I have two tandoori roti (if you haven't tried one they are yummy)

Cobra. Enough to forget how many you've had or what time you left.

I always have:

3 spiced poppadoms
Chutney and lime pickle
Chicken Pathia
Pilau Rice
Garlic Naan
Lager

Without fail, I have the same things whatever curry house I'm in, it just means I don't have to make the effort reading a menu and looking for stuff when I'm p1ssed.

Chappatis instead of the naan, does it for me

OK, so does anyone have any decent curry recipes?

Heres one I use which is pretty good:

For the lamb
(marinate lamb overnight & soak the rice for 1 hour)
½ kg lamb leg meat, cubed
1 tbsp garlic, crushed
1/3 tbsp ginger, crushed
1 tbsp cumin powder
1 ½ tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 ½ tsp curry powder

For the curry sauce
6 ripe plum tomatoes (or 3 beef tomatoes), chopped
1 large white onion, sliced finely
30ml sunflower oil
15ml butter
15ml sea salt
Freshly chopped coriander leaves to decorate

For the rice
375ml white basmati rice
½ a white onion, sliced finely
1 tsp turmeric
2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp sunflower oil
2 cardamom pods
250ml boiled water

METHOD
1. Mix the coriander, cumin, curry powder and turmeric with the pureed
ginger and garlic into a paste. Rub the marinade into your lamb pieces
and leave to marinate overnight.
2. Heat the oil in a pan and add the butter and the onions. Fry for a few
minutes until the onions are tender but not brown. Then add the lamb
and fry on a high heat to seal the lamb.
3. Once the lamb is sealed, turn the heat to medium and let it cook. This
should take about 10 – 15 minutes.
4. Then add the chopped tomatoes. Mix well and let it cook until the
tomatoes are tender. This will take about 10 minutes so that all the
flavours infuse into the meat.

For the rice:
1. Wash and soak the rice in cold water for one hour then drain.
2. In a non-stick pan, heat the oil and fry the onions until tender and just
turning golden.
3. Add the turmeric and salt, stir and fry for a few seconds then add the
rice and half the boiling water until it just covers the rice.
4. Cover with the lid and let the rice steam on a medium heat for 10
minutes. Add more water if needed. Cooking time should be about 15
minutes.
Not so much a curry recipe as a curry solution.

Go into Ali's, order what lesbryan said (my next 'experiment' - tomorrow I've decided :D ). Call in the T*o* for a pint of lager. Take curry home and consume with either Cobra or Matelot's Rose.

Watch the ginger bird on telly. Knock one out. Kick cat.

And sleep...

You should get commission for this Stix.

I think I might have to have a curry tomorrow night too!

I've not been in the T*o* for a few years. Hows the Queens these days?
I'd assumed you were still in this neck of the woods Stix. *r*t OK, but never recovered from being knocked through in my opinion - like a Wetherspoons (sp?).

Queens has been my 'second' local for years, and I know it was the boozer of choice for you chaps. It's an odd place these days - arguably the only 'real' pub left, but I called in a couple of times over Christmas (first times in six months or so) and I couldn't help getting the impression that the name 'Queens' is being used rather literally if you get my drift.

Mind you, it is the only one in the village.

No wonder it was a favourite with Royal :wink:
