I find when I grow cilantro in a pot I get better results. I just make sure the soil is pretty loose.
Irishguy, do you put it in the ground or in a pot?

In a pot, right there with the basil that grows nicely. I'm just not doing it anymore.

We didn't go to Taj Mahal when I was in Fort Wayne.

I am thinking it would be along the line of the second link meta. The wikihow.

My memory says it didn't have yogurt so it seems more like a chutney. Now I recall asking about that before in another thread. (am I getting older?)

Either recipe should work because I always always deviate according to taste/smell. I'm thinking of substituting rice vinegar instead of the lemon juice for starters.

You can make it with or without the yogurt.

LOL, do you remember your name? Razz

Why not substitute, it's interesting to cook that way.

Yeah, what I think I'll do is make the mint chutney and mix yogurt with half of it. I'll skip the yogurt/onion/garlic and do the more green chutney and sauce.

Well, both Kroger and Scotts here SW ("rich" side of town? bah!) were out of mint. So I went with cilantro, garlic, onion, yogurt raita. I also threw in a fresh jalapeno from a friend's garden, which was overkill. It couldn't taste it, but I felt it later. Not bad, just a slight discomfort that I'm blaming on the jalapeno. I should have use a red chile. Those jalap's are wicked hot, I picked two and threw the first one in the raita and yesterday I decided to slice a bit and eat raw. Wicked.

The chicken was A+++ awesome. I will definitely do this again very soon. I'll add a bit more salt to the marinade though. Maybe I'll try jasmine rice next time, but Basmati was supreme. My wife was skeptical about the curry, but said it was surprisingly good. She had seconds so I totally doubt the sincerity of her curry preference! Very Happy I'll just use less than the worst curry dish she's ever had and it's all good. Very Happy

Sorry for not getting any food porn pics. :/

Plant your own mint, ya lazy bum... Razz

So you probably went to the Kroger's that's across the street from the Scott's on Jefferson Blvd.

Sounds like a fantastic meal there. When are we getting our invitation? I think LTRT must be wondering the same thing too...LOL.

You did the chicken on the BBQ, right?
That's exactly the reaction I get from people who hasn't tried it before. They think, curried chicken on the BBQ??? Then after that they eat, they admit it is delicious.
Even my friend who never had curry, ate and ate again.

Just thought you might find this article interesting meta

I did plant mint this year, and it failed miserably. Embarassed Go figure. I decided to plant it last year when I did the leg of lamb because it's so darn expensive when fresh. I did the chicken on the BBQ, it was very moist but left a little more than the usual residue from the marinade which was thicker than others I've done - but well worth it. I will definitely spend the time to clean off that extra residue rather than the .5 C of chicken drippings that usually cook off - that's just the stuff that drains off into my grease trap before it burns. I don't like the smell of burnt chicken fat/skin as much as I do the curry marinade, who would? I will not grill chicken (legs, thighs) again this year, and much less in the future with the skin on.

Invites? You let me know when you'll be back down this way and if the stars are in proper alignment, it will happen. LTRT, you'll be invited also but you have to bring a few beers! Very Happy

I've been changing the way I season a lot of my stuff because of Turmeric and this book that my wife read about it's anti-cancer/Alzheimers/free-radical goodness. The book mentioned something about the ayurvedic (sp?) diet and holistic medicinal practices as it's basis for supporting the claims and studies on Turmeric. I wondered if/how much turmeric was in the curry, which I'll need more of. You might as well put me down for 1 or 2 kg if that's alright. Let me know how much it'll cost. The recipe would be cheaper to ship if it's not a state secret! Cool

And my mint here is going freaking wild. It is somewhat contained or it might take over everything.

I usually have the skin removed before grilling that stuff too, then again I use a charcoal BBQ.

That's no worries at all for sending some to you next time I am in the US, if not in your area.

I am not sure how much tumeric is in that mix, but that can investigated.

I am not sure about getting a recipe from an old woman...LOL, it would probably be something like this,
a handful of this, a bit of that, a little bit of the other one over there and so on.
Then I'll have this Shocked expression.

Yeah, see if you can find out. Standard measurements as they are. I will say I count "love" as an added ingredient. Give her a kiss on the forehead for me. Very Happy

I didn't smell a pronounced turmeric in that but curry is an olfactory hurricane. The only reason I ask is because I read a few recipes and they call for about 1/2 t. for a 1/3 c. yield. I would probably want to try 2x that and see what happens. I have about 1/3 c. maybe little more mix left and I'm thinking about doing the chicken again - this time with much more chicken than the 3 lb. bird which only had about 1.5 lbs meat after it was cut up. I ended up with a bunch of leftover marinade.

I'll let her know you enjoyed the mix... Very Happy
She'll be very pleased to hear that.

And I will ask her to show me how much of what she's putting in with the mix.

Edit: Meta, did you make the naan on the grill? how did that turn out?

I made another batch of the chicken. I tried to hold as close to the orig. formula I made the first time. Then I marinated it overnight and took it over to a friends house and had him grill them. The stuff disappeared and the 4 large pork steaks he also grilled went straight to the leftovers container. Another guy took some home to his mother and the next day asked me for the recipe.

Picture this, having a few beers with the boys while getting ready to play in a shuffleboard tournament, chatting it up about curry marinade and recipes. Maybe one would have to understand M'ville a bit to find that funny. Buncha "macho" men in aprons. Cool

Canuck, we may have a big winner here... how about starting a spice import company from the garage? Very Happy

Ahhh feck... I have to own up...

My wife was spotted the spice mix in the gift bag so we nicked a few tablespoons of it because it smelled awesome. She made a chicken Curry two night ago that was better than anything I have had at any of the restaurants locally... amazing stuff...

@meta... hilarious about the M'ville rednecks...

No worries man. You've already been reported to the proper authorities. Very Happy

Seriously, the most excellent curry mix I've ever tasted. I nearly had to have a beer just to cheer myself up after smelling the "mccormick" crap I had.

Naw, you've never seen a tabletop shuffleboard? It's a blast! It's the only "sport" I can play where catching a buzz makes for better play - up to a point. Sure there's old-er guys that play, but they're awesome at it so it's fun. I learnt tons of technique just by watching them play. Good times. We play $5 a head tournaments so if there's 16 players - 8 teams make a no-bye bracket and second place team gets $20 (then they split) and first place gets $60 (split).

and keeping on topic, you can eat roast chicken if you want...

OH, I see. Yeah that's pretty fun. There are a few bars around that have them. I was thinking the hard surface court on the ground, with the long sticks and the clay disks that slide across the court. I'll have some of that roast chicken. You can play cornhole while drinking. <--Hehehe

Sorry fellas, I didn't check in for a few days and missed all of this.

Pez, are you serious? LOL...that is hilarious.
Sure, let's start that business, it sounds like it will be a hit down there. You have a garage for us to sell from? Or are we moving into Pez's? The rent could be in the form of spices.

I don't know if I can tell all this to an 82 year old woman, it might just inflate her ego too much...heck I'll spare her and take the credit... Razz
