Rajasthani Red Chicken Curry
I often get comments and emails mentioning that the dish they tried out from my blog, did not have the colors they see in the photographs. The red color of a curry may be dependent on a lot of things. If you are using store bought chili powders, or dried chilies, keep in mind all varieties and brands are different and might impart different colors to a dish. In my kitchen I use Kashmiri Red Chili Powder, and if you compare this to any other chili powders, you would know the difference in colors. Again all brands of the Kashmiri Chili Powder might not be exactly same. If it is a tomato based curry, again the hue will depend on the kind of tomato or how ripe they are. The goal is not to get the exact colors to match the photographs, but to get closest to the taste of the recipe.
