Hoping to make lamb rogan Josh and chicken madras for Sunday dinner but I can't be bothered faffing around making it from scratch. So which brand of jarred curry do you recommend? Thanks :)

I like Pataks myself.

They're all fairly revolting. Just go for the cheapest.

Whats the orange and black labels? Prob the Pataks - they do the popodums and naan and all that too - they're the best ones

That's probably one of the worst ones i've tried.


I guess that's why I wasn't impressed!

I personally recommend the pataks madras paste, which needs one onion, half a cup of water and half a tin of chopped tomatoes. I usually add a little more chilli powder as well.
You'll be surprised how much letting a curry simmer for 35-40 minutes improves the flavour. Especially with chicken off the bone.

It's not an effort at all plus one jar of paste makes about 8 servings and can be stored for absolutely ages.

Pataks Jalfreizi is gorgeous. Not entirely sure on the spelling and not prepared to dig the jar out of the bin to check :D

Asdas range is good. There's Also KTC.

Pataks is good. They used to do a kashmiri butter that I really liked, but it seems to have vanished from the shelves.

Thats pretty good but the best are the meena range from pataks. Cost a bit more but are so worth it.
We make our own now but if i needed to rustle one up quick, i'd go for the meena range.

I don't like sauces from jars, yuk.

But I do now occasionally use Patak's tikka paste or tandoori paste after I bought some for my son to use when he was at school and had cookery lessons. Those two pasted are really lovely and great if I don't have much time in the kitchen.

I've never tried those,do you recommend them,their own ones for pasta(spag bol) are really nice.


well we have them..tikka masalla used to be excellent but isnt quite the same since the new label a couple of years ago but its still nice.
The smartprice bolognese is also fine ive used it for pizzas when there was no offer on other makes and was v happy with it-i noted at the time to tomato content was higher which is good

Dont like lloyds...pataks i havent tried all of them but im not too impressed but ive not got a posh pallet lol

#29
strangely enough - i always think tescos own is nice (not the cheapest range value ones) - they are usually around £1 for a jar.
