Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Default Poppadom accompaniments- Mint sauce. Does anybody have a good recipe?

You know the stuff. It's ubiquitous, yellow, creamy, minty and of pretty consistent taste and viscosity at most Indian restaurants. Do restaurants generally buy this product ready-made or do they make their own? I have never managed to find a decent recipe to emulate this wonderous poppadom companion.

Does anybody out there know how to make this stuff? All recipes submitted will be tested and the winning submission will be treated to a ride in one of my vehicles. (Choices are 1999 Vauxhall Astra or 1990 FSO Polonez).

I do one with plain yogurt, chopped mint, a little garlic and pepper. Don't really have exact amounts as I just make it up to taste.

DINGDINGDING! That's the one!

You can add a little mango if you like, or some tandoori spice blend, all sorts really to make different dips. Finely chopped onion with some mint chucked in works well with them too.

If you are feeling brave, dice a packet or two of chillis, cook them off with some garlic and a little onion, add part of a tin of tomatos to get a nice sauce, throw in some cumin, tumeric and onion seeds, and either leave it course or blend it, and then add yoghurt to "cool" to taste.

If you like curry and want recipes like the take aways I would recommend "the curry secret" by Kris Dillon.
I had a lot of hit or miss curries until I found this book.
