[Modernist Cuisine] Goan Curry

Recommended Posts


I tried to make sense of the correction/clarifications on the Goan Curry recipee, but it didn´t even sound close to the recipee i got in the German version of MC under the name "Currysauce nach Goa-Art" (5 - 95).

Question 1)

In step 4 all the spices are added to the tomato, ghee, onions mixture "sauteing until they start to smell"

In step 5 everything gets in the oven, roasted for 10 minutes with 170C° "until they start to smell"

In step 6 everything is grinded in a coffee grinder or a Mixer

--> Looks like step 4 is wrong and should be done like in the other recipees after step 5 (roasting the spices) and step 6 (grinding the roasted spices)? Putting an Onion-Tomato-Spice Mixture into a coffee grinder in step 6 would destroy it. Why roasting the Onion-Tomato-Spice Mixture again in the oven in step 5? So it is a mistake in the sequence, isn´t it?

Question 2: One ingredient is cane vinegar. So, the only cane vinegar i could find so far is a mixture of 50% water and 50% cane vinegar, resulting in 5% acidity. Is that the vinegar which should be used for the recipee?

Question 3, linked to question 2) My recipee doesnot demand water whatsoever. Is that explained by the usage of pure vinegar, which should be watered down?

"On pages 5·95 and 6·224, the recipe for Goan Curry Sauce should call for 250 g of water with a scaling of 208%. This should be placed just above cane vinegar. For more corrections to this recipe on page 6·224 only, click here.

On page 5·95, in the recipe for Goan Curry Sauce, ‚“see page 2·424? should read ‚“see page 3·290.”

Thank you for all your help!

Best regards

      I was reminded the other day of the egg-in-plastic-wrap-poach method.

      GE is entering the SV field in an innovative way. They are doing a crowdfunding approach through one of their Innovation technology centers. The device itself is also innovative in that it uses a Inductive cooktop for the heating element with a wireless temperature sensor. It's also unique in that it does not include any type of water circulation.
      Here's a link to the crowdfunding site: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/paragon-induction-cooktop/
      What does everybody think about this entry into the field? If nothing else it certainly shows that SV has gotten the attention of major appliance makers. A few weeks ago GE also announced that one of their new lines of stoves will have the same type of temperature control as this device uses so you can do SV on your stovetop.

      I made the Creme Anglaise recipe from Myhrvold Modernist Cuisine - it did look curdled and lumpy coming out of the zip lock bag as described in the recipe.
      I used my stick blender to smooth it out as instructed, but I think I blended it for too long, and it went from lumpy to smooth to watery. Did I make a fatal mistake of over blending the custard?
      The recipe does not say how to blend or when to stop.
      Hoping one of the gurus can give me guidance before I try this again.
      Many Thanks

      Has anyone used Valrhona Absolut Crystal neutral glaze particularly to thicken a coulis or to glaze a tart?  If so, how did you like it and is there another glaze you think worked as well but is less expensive or can be purchased in smaller quantities?

      I would like to buy some pectinex ultra sp-l.
      However I am worried about the temperature during the shipping time.
      I read that the storage temperature should be between 2 and 8 C. It works best from 15 to 50 C, and if it stays a lot of time in 25 C, it will gradually be deactivated.
      It needs a week to come here (Greece), then will it affect its abilities?
      Do you know if I can find a document somewhere that explains the gradual loss of power as a function of time and temperature?
      Did you have any experience with pectinex not working well due to bad storage?
