    Default Veg curry in a Yorkshire Pudding

    I have some veg curry and want to serve it in a yorkshire pudding.
    I cook the yorkshire in a 6 or 8 inch metal dish.
    They always rise but only occationaly do I get that perfect dish shape. Usually they are bubbly all over.
    Any idea how youn get that perfect dish shape.
    Thanks

    Would placing a saucer in the middle part way through cooking prevent the centre from rising up?

    Seems manual intervention is needed.

    Last step from a BBC recipe

    When the pudding comes out of the oven, remove from the tin, flatten with the back of a large metal spoon and halve lengthways.

    Did one tonight and it had a nice rim half way round.
    Suspect it might be the amount of batter. A bit more and it might have had a full rim.
    Experimenting .....

    My brother in law is a Yorkshireman. He cranks oven up to max, with well greased tin in oven. Then, with jug of batter in one hand, quickly takes tin out of oven with the other, pours batter in whilst simultaneously swirling it round the tin so it coats the edges - tin is so hot that some of the batter cooks itself to the sides of the tin on the first swirl, giving that same shape to the finished pudding.

    I tried it, and got batter all over the oven and floor....

    As a true Yorkshirewoman (born in Barnsley) and also the eventual great maker of Yorkshire puddings my main advice is use bread flour and very hot fat (goose fat or lard) not oil. I never weigh the ingredients. just make sure you have enough egg in it. We have just had them as a starter with gravy (before slow roast lamb shoulder) and I put the batter in a square tin, 20cmx20cm, to share with my husband. The sides came up like mad and the bottom had smaller ridges............ perfection (after many early failures)
