and the legend that is hukd sarcasm lives on!
For a normal curry we put 3 tablespoons of curry powder into a four chicken breast curry. HTH. Not Madras though just medium or mild.

thanks for the sensible answer
cdm22 i thank you lol
The funniest thing would be tasting your result
Please tell us the rest of the ingredients
ok first of all wat you cooking? chiken or veg? and how much of chicken or veg you got?
for a normal portion chicken curry ie 2 chicken breast fillets, or alternatively 4 drumsticks, , heres the basics:

chop 1 medium/large onion and fry in about 4 tablespoons cooking oil, add about half teaspoon salt, add one tomato, and pinch of crushed garlic n ginger, fry and saute until soft, add your spices, usually,
quarter teaspoon haldi(tumeric) powder
quarter teaspoon chilli powder
half teaspoon danhiya (coriander) powder
quarter teaspoon jeera (cumin) powder
quarter teaspoon madras curry powder
pinch of garam masala
now stir until the oil comes to the surface, then add chicken and cook on full heat for about 5 mins, until all water released from chicken is cooked, then turn heat on medium add about 1 glass water and cook chicken for about 25mins until done, and sauce reached the required consistency, and then garnish with fresh coriander..

hope that helps, or better still rather than use all the spices, you can buy small resealable east end packs of curry powders(ie rogan josh, tikka masala, jalfrezi, balti ) from tesco, asda etc, and instructions be at the back
