zurynee,

thank you for the recipe. For the dried chilli paste, can we add water to dry chilli powder and make a paste. :roll:

zurynee,

The sauce for this curry was just lovely but it was very very hot, even though I only used 1/2 the chilli's asked for. I added potatoes and more water to try and take some heat off - would have been better if I didn't meddle with it. I really need to find a less spicy chilli powder :twisted: .

Thank you for sharing this recipe. Smile

The curries look fantastic. I've never cooked curry from scratch before and I'm keen to give this a try.

It's very hard to find fresh turmeric in UK, can I substitute it with turmeric powder instead? If yes, how much should I put in?

Sinner, how much chilli powder did you use to make the chilli paste?

Can I substitute chicken with beef or lamb? Do you think it will make a change to the taste of the curry?

I use only 1 Tbsp but my chilli powder was a killer. My gravy in the photo a bit spoilt (looks diluted) because I added heaps of water. The sauce was looking so good before I spoilt it Embarassed . I think it would taste great with beef or lamb.

You can try with 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp of tumeric powder.

For the chilli powder, is it the same as the Koran Chilli powder?
