Curry Base

I have been experimenting with a new base recipe, called the Taz base. This is a simple base - more so than other bases I have made. The results however, have been awesome.

Here is the recipe.


6 large onions, approximately 1kg peeled weight, chopped
5 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
2 inch x 1 inch piece of ginger, chopped
1 average sized green pepper, chopped
450 ml of vegetable oil
2/3 tbsp. salt
1½ tbsp. ground turmeric
1 tbsp. ground coriander
1 tbsp. ground cumin
2 litres of water
200 grams of tinned tomatoes


put all ingredients except the tinned tomatoes in pan
bring to the boil, with lid on, and gently boil for 1 hour
add the tomatoes and simmer for about 15 minutes
allow to cool a little and blend until smooth
add more water at the end of blending to get that soup like consistency (if required)
bring back to the boil and simmer until some oil becomes visible on the surface of the base
the base is now ready
