    ok so im looking for some curry experts to help me out a little!!!

    i thought i would be adventourous last night and i made a curry from scratch, i looked it up on the internt, got some popular cooking methods and recipes etc..... but decided just to work from what i had and make it up a little!!!

    it was lovely and would definatly do it again some time.... problem is (as i kind of improvised with what i had) i dont know what sort of curry its "most" like. eg. tika masala etc. (im just curious really)

    heres what i did:

    1) in oil, fryed some onions and garlic.
    2) added dried spices (tumeric, cumin, ginger, corianda, paprika and chilli powder)
    3) then added the chicken (cubed)
    4) added a bit of fresh choped ginger and fresh chopped chillis
    5) once chicken had cooked i added tinned tomato's
    6) let that reduce a little then added a bit of yogurt

    what sort of curry is this, or does it not count as a "propper" curry

    While I don't see why it matters, it sounds sort of madras-ish. Kind of. You butchered the recipe a hell of a lot if that's what you were going for.

    Nah, next time dry fry the spices, then gring
    d them. Then they get so much more flavour. Then add the oil and cook
    As for the name, there isn't really one.
    I'd be tempted to put it as 'Generic Faux-Indian Curry' though

    well alot of the indian curries use a combination or all of the spices you used, there's usually a particular ingredient or combination that makes it a particular dish.
    I'd be tempted to say yours is the tomatoes, the other inredients are used in alot of dishes, although the yoghurt is often a side dish that can be added to make it milder, or sometimes cream is used in the cooking instead. But I'd say that 'cause its just the tomatoes that make it different, you couldn't really name it close to a dish, its closer to one of the curry skeletons..get what I mean?
    It sounds nice! how long did it take?

    Its never too early for curry. Or indeed too late

    OP, google a recipe for 'Gurkha curry', they are lush. they're even better when made by Gurkha's themselves :coma:
