I have never come across this dish during my travels in Bengal. Is it one of those Made in UK but foreign tagged items?
Btw, this product is made in India and shipped over here. Why could they not make it here ? Seems completely unnecessary just to save a few pennies for the seller.

Lol, if it saves the business money, then it's not unnecessary??!??

I've never had a "curry" from a premade sauce that was good or authentic.

I have never seen a Indian that owns a Indian restaurant. Why is that?

The answer is if they were called Bangladeshi no one would go there

Doesn't make sense. What are you saying. What shelves
19DembaBa1909/04/2020 17:31

What I am saying it that obviously millions of people buy ready made curry sauce as the market is massive, the Supermarket shelver are full of hundreds of different brands from top manufacturers, do you think all that curry sauce in the supermarket is for show? Yes home made is the best but to say "who uses ready made" Is a bit otter some people don't have the time to cook from scratch or even like a particular brand of ready made, each to their own

Ok that's fine. So people do buy it, i didn't know because most of the people I know make their own sauces thanks
It must be based on (BIR) British Indian Recipe made for the british curry market

The overwhelming majority (nearly 90%) of Indian restaraunts in the UK are not owned by Indians or people of Indian descent, rather Bangladeshis/Bangladeshi descent. The reason for this is purely historical and heavily influenced by post-colonial views of the Indian subcontinent. India, the gem of the British empire, has an "exotic" aura whereas most people don't know where Bangladesh (and often times Pakistan by extension) is on the map even though historically the term Indian refers to all three of these 21st century nation-states and share a common cuisine with certain differences from locality to locality. Over time more and more restaraunts are listing their food as Bangladeshi rather than Indian, it's a process but ultimately as the term "Indian" sells... people will use it to make money.

There were a number of reasons, one it was common for people in the UK to be less well informed then and simply call anyone from the region “Indian”, Pakistan was only founded in 1947, Bangladesh was even later so even those from the region were getting used to referring to their country as anything but India. Historically there was also a general tendency to call all the regions of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh as one name.

It’s one of those things where it was easier to just accept being labelled as “Indian”, which immigrant had the influence to change that in the early days?And now the terminology is embedded it’s even more difficult.

Next time you go to a “Indian” restaurant, enquire where the chef and owner are from. You’ll find in reality the vast majority are from Bangladesh. Unfortunately if you market the restaurant as Bengal/Bangladeshi, the general public do not realise that the food they’ve been having has been largely from that region.

Saying all this, of course there will be some dishes from around the subcontinent.

Hope that helped.
