Curry In Kusadasi

#3
I agree with that..Magda..not a decent curry anywere in an around Kusadasi..go to pork lines buy a cook in sauce ..and cook yourself .(safe option).and save a fortune ,rather than a curry here that you would be disappointed with..too many wanabee so called chefs here...that hav,nt a clue ...

Yes and the chefs and Turkish ladies cook Turkish food so much better we dont even bother wth the sauces we use curry powder and spices easily available here add some yogurt or even a little milk or cream / delish...Tho must confess had a fab curry nr Fethiye Calis Beach?? yrs ago but thats not much help......

To make any of the above curry pastes
First peel the garlic and ginger • Put a frying pan on a medium to high heat and add the spices for toasting to the dry pan • Lightly toast them for a few minutes until golden brown and smelling delicious, then remove the pan from the heat • Add the toasted spices to a pestle and mortar and grind until fine, or put them into a food processor and whiz to a powder • Either way, when you’ve ground them whiz the toasted spices in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients until you have a smooth paste

Hope this helps curry s taste much better when you make them yourself and you can but the ingredients from the spice shop.

Must tell you a story about curry. I went to Victoria restaurant when they opened on Ladies beach about 2 years ago. They advertised a chicken massala on the menu but every time I've tried one in other places the sauce was watery so I asked them if they could do a creamy sauce for me. The meal arrived and the sauce was cream, yes, pure white cream straight out of the tub. Bl**dy heck. I gave up after that and now make my own :eek:

Yes it was Shah Jan and it had really good food. You're right Jake -best Indian food I ever had in Turkey too. I think the answer is to make your own.
Lighten-up's list of pastes is super and should give excellent results - no excuse now for not making your own!
