Is Kara(c)hi possibly same as what's called a Korai in my takeaway of choice, or are they different things?

ORIGINAL: Whagwan

I've used this recipe before for Dhansak and it's fucking lovely.  I try and let it simmer for as long as possible to get the lamb as tender as can be,  I usually make it the day before i want to eat it...

Ingredients:• 100 g Red Lentils
• 500 g Butternut Squash (peeled and chopped into chunks)
• 2 Onions (roughly chopped)
• 400 g chopped Tomatoes
• 1 tsp Turmeric
• 1 tsp Salt
• 1½ tsp Cumin Seeds
• 1½ tsp Coriander Seeds
• 4 Cardamom Pods (squashed)
• 1 tbsp Oil
• 400 g lean diced Lamb
• Thumb-sized piece of root Ginger (finely chopped)
• 4 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
• 2-3 Green Chilies (sliced)
• 1 tsp Garam Masala
• Small bunch of Coriander (chopped)

How to make Lamb Dhansak: •Combine lentils, butternut squash, onions, and tomatoes in a large saucepan. •Add turmeric and salt. •Pour water, enough to cover the contents. •Cover the pan and simmer for 20 minutes, until the lentils turn tender. •Dry roast cumin, coriander, and cardamom in a small pan, until you can smell the aroma. •Remove and grind to a fine powder. •Heat oil in a separate pan and add lamb pieces in small batches. Brown on all sides and transfer in a large plate. •Add the ground spices in the same pan. Sauté for 2 minutes. •Add ginger, garlic, and green chilies. Mix and cook for few minutes. •Add lamb pieces and cooked lentils, squash, onions, and tomatoes. Pour 200 ml water and stir well. •Cover the pan and simmer for 1 hour. Uncover and cook for another 30 minutes, until the lamb turns soft and sauce thickens. •Sprinkle garam masala and coriander.



dang i actually have all that at home, delicious curry here i come.

Whagwarn im gonna attempt a dhansak using your recipe.
I may just make the sauce and slow cook the lamb though, also, do you soak the lentils / dhal over night?

I didnt do it last time and cooked longer than 20 minutes and it was no where near enough.

Lentils should be soaked overnight really. Ideally you should leave the curry to cook for at least 4/5 hours (i usually leave it in all day in the slow cooker if I'm working)

My curries are sick, but I never follow a recipe. I might try and find one for a biryani though, I love those.

just out of interest, do any of you lot order your indian ingredients online? We're not exactly blessed with many exotic food shops in this part of the world. Best I can hope for is the big tesco.

Been looking at http://www.itadka.com

I am giving this ago tomorrow.

Anyone heard of this book? the amazon reviews are pretty spectacular if they are real, and I think they are as they go back years.
Gonna try Tikka Masala for the fam.

The base sauce looks like a lot of work. Will report back.

I've made the madras from that book a few times. Pretty much perfected it now


The sauce is a pain to make the first time, but just makes loads and freeze it in small tubs. Once you've got those, it only takes about 15mins to make most things in that book.

Post some recipes then you berk


pmsl, i will , but its long, also working with Indian rather than Bangladeshi , depending on what you usually eat things will seem different, for an example bangladeshi tikka masala does not contain tomato !!! etc etc.

also all my recipes are for bulk cooking, i could whittle them down, but unless you're prepared to make the base sauce, tomato base, garlic ginger paste etc, then its not worth my effort, maybe you could have a different curry every day for a week.

also some sauces are just combinations of others,

i.e. passanda is half korma half mahkni , but add red wine sugar etc
do piaza is just a hyped up bhuna , extra onions, basically translates as - 2 onions

ooooooh , i could go on all day
