Rama’s look/taste alike?

By jadie360 - 6 August 2009 23

I have recently moved from Canberra to the coast and loving it.  EXCEPT, I am not getting my weekly fix of Rama’s, especially the Chicken Korma and Beef Madras.

Does anyone have or know where I can find receipes that will re-create these for me so my life will be perfect? 

I have tried several generic ones but nothing comes close to the Rama’s taste.

What’s Your opinion?

YouWhat said :

We know Minny (the owner/operator of Rama’s) – no way she’d give out her recipes (!) but I’ll see if she knows of any place down your way that she might recommend; maybe that would be an acceptable substitute!

Thanks YouWhat, that would be great. You could tell her we are the Chicken Korma and Beef Madras people and that our boys have all driven for her – she’ll know who we are 🙂

A good cookbook is the best I can do- everyone has difference definitions of “good” and I can’t recall the name of the one on my kitchen bench except to say that it has a saffron cover and loads of helpful photos.

I’m sorry if I have offended anyone – that wasn’t my intention. It just seemed that no one had actually addressed my specific question.

Quick tip: RiotACT threads, like all internet forums, have a life and mind of their own. Complain or try to dictate content will get you a STFU very quickly and very little in the way of help. The very first poster gave you a constructive tip. Take from the thread what is useful and be thankful. I think the Rioters have been very easy on you.

I thought post 1,5 & 9 were helpful?

I love ramas also, good luck finding a similar restaurant.

Rama’s is in Pearce, it’s so good!

How do these help? I know Rama’s is in Pearce. I have been going there for years.

Lear how to cook your own- Indian is so easy once you understand the order of when things go in. Get yourself a good cook book and you’ll never look back.

That’s actually what I was asking. For help to find suitable recipes.

Did any of you actually read what I wrote? Yes Rama’s is in Pearce, but no I don’t live in Canberra anymore. I have moved to the coast.
I WANT to cook my own, and have tried, but haven’t found any recipes that replicate even closely that particular Rama’s taste. I am asking for advise on how to do so. That’s all – simple really.

I read there comments and think it seemed as they people did read what you wrote. I don’t get the issue.
I doubt people will really want to help you out if you have such attitude too.

Mmmm Rama’s,
My extensive research in Melbourne and Sydney has failed to find one Indian restaurant anywhere near equal to this palace of Pearce and especially the dishes you mentioned as well as the Lamb Sagh, jadie360.
Why don’t you move back to Canberra?

Order some of the spice blends from here

Make your own. We are Ramas devotees as well but these spice mixes come very close. They are at Floriade most years so can be tasted there. The butter chicken and south Indian vegetable curry are our favourites
