No, he's right. Madras is a British recipe.
It's a British dish, as are all our main curry dishes. It's only the vegetarian stuff that's usually Indian.
Madras is South Indian.
Love it all but if I had to pick one.

Nope. The name "Madras" is an English invention, a reference to the origin of the dish. The recipe is authentic Indian, referring to the Madras region that was colonised in the early 1600s and became a major trading hub of the East India Company.
The vast majority of what we know as curries are authentic indian recipes, with the exception of Tikka Massala (developed by an Indian chef in an Indian restuarant in the UK in the 70s) and Korma (a malaysian variation of the traditional Indian Kurma recipe dating back several hundred years which adds coconut milk to the indian version), which can be traced back hundreds, if not thousands of years (Sanskrit scrolls have been found showing curry recipes daing back to around 2,800BC)
