I believe what she's saying is that 'flowery' potatoes wouldn't be suitable...need something more 'waxy' to hold their shape when cooked and mixed with the other ingredients...that's an english thing, in Thailand we ain't got much choice...I just use whatever lotus or the market has got for all potato recipes and turns out OK...just boil or steam until you can just crush them with a fork...

 

and yeah...I always use fresh tomatoes as canned ones are hard to find locally; just chop into one inch cubes and add to the pot, mix and simmer until they're soft and then use a potato masher or similar device to mash up in the pot and produce a sauce, usually add the salt and pepper at this point...then carry on with the rest of the recipe...

 

 

I suppose tinned tomatoes are already skinned?

where'd ye find that at makro? never seen any prepared indian curry paste at our makro..

sent picture to my wife. she says we have some in the freezer but she's not impressed. will try it one of these days. perhaps one can do some ''optimisation'' according to personal taste.

as a basis OK but one needs to add a lot to make it tasty.

the lobster and the crab meat is added before or after seasoning?

better to have on the side with an avocado and a nice dressing...why would anyone wanna destroy the subtle (and expensive and generally unavailable) flavor inna curry?

i never experienced a tasty juicy tomato in Thailand!

Blanch the tomatoes and skin and take out the seeds and mix with fresh basil.  Makes wonderful pizza sauce.  For juicy tomatoes leave the ones bought at Lotus in a box with a banana and don't expose to light until juicy and ripe.

yeah, one can skin the fresh toms with the boiling water technique but I don't bother...unskinned toms help with the bowel movements...

Just thought it'd stop him wanking in front of his computer.

 

you sound like my dear old grandma who caught me wanking with a magazine when I was 12 who then laughed and said: 'you are a masturbator...'

 

and I was thoroughly humiliated and looked to see if my dick was gonna fall off like of all the adults warned was gonna happen...not that the opprobrium did any permanent damage...

 

but what does all this have to do with the preparation of vegetable curries?

I just chop the tomatoes up finely for my pizza.

You really don't want to know. I think.

for a quick pizza sauce put the toms with some oil and spices (basil, etc) inna blender...the skins then get well shredded...

I'm too lazy to wash the blender, easier to just chop with a knife.
