To be honest I'm shattered! Decided to cook Chicken Thari Wala to go alongside the Chilli Paneer, Veg Pakoras and Mint Chutney. The difference in the look of my chilli and ginger 'paste' compared to Hari's was alarming! Anyway it all came out well in the end and the family is happy. The pakoras were really good.

My paste was not the same either, I soaked the chillies and used my blender, my blender is not like Hari’s - but still tasted good

Looks gorgeous @daren.lowry my paste was not the same. I put it down to me not using a spice blender but my smoothie maker instead which may not be as good.

I have a cuisinart nut and spice grinder which is great for blends chutneys etc. Expensive but it’s lasted a long time so far! @daren.lowry

Had some dried chillies, soaked in water. Probably just not good enough ones and the blender isn't great either. Looks like I need to get back to your shop for better chillies. any suggestion for a good blender?

Sounds like you are ready for the weekend @daren.lowry looks really good from here. I’m sorry it was a bit stressful!
Did you have Kashmiri chillies in the paste?
