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 :)

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

Seeds of Change or Veeraswamy do really good homemade tasting sauces

I've only tried Lloyd grossman but I wasn't hugely impressed.

I might try veeraswamy.... It sounds more exotic!

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.

Aldi "bilash" dopiaza sauce is genuinely the best jar sauce I have ever tasted, it has won awards and best of all it only costs £1.19

That would have been great if i knew what bilash dopiaza was! Sounds like me sort of prescription drug!?
