Saw this last night, that the offer was starting today. Pretty sure I remember seeing most of the other pasted were also down to 90p. Used to use half a jar each of the tikka masala and madras pastes to make a nice curry, but have moved on to making my own pastes now with the raw spices. Everyone seems to agree that these 'new' curries are much better than before.

My sister got worried last year, thought they weren't going to be making the pastes anymore when she saw the new stir in jars and these pastes on sale at the same time. I think, at the time she brought the entire tray that was on the shelf.
She got me hooked on curry with Pataks way back when the paste was in small tins. These days, like yourself I make my own curry from spice and all the family do prefer 'my' curry over the pastes but these jars are certainly a great introduction to making a curry 'from scratch' rather then buying a boxed or takeaway version. Certainly a lot cheaper, even not on sale, then the pre-packed spice kits (what a rip off!).

Especially since some of the larger Tesco Extra stores have a huge 'ethnic' section where the spices can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of, for example, the Schwartz stuff. I can get huge 500g and 1Kg bags of cumin, turmeric, madras powder, etc. for less than than the price of a 38g jar of the same stuff. oO

Vindaloo-hoo-hoo!

hot

this is great spred on cheese on toast!!! let it bubble away!!! ecstasy!!

I can feel my butty groaning in despair already!! Hot deal but make sure you stick a loo roll in the freezer for the following day when your bums singing!! X)

Always found Patak's curry sauces awful, but the Vindaloo is just about passable if not at all as hot as it should be.

The big supermarkets have a cheaped out version now - it's more homogenous-looking and blander than the original. You can still buy the original pastes from Wing Yip supermarket - the original font on the labels is slightly different, it looks darker, it's 'grittier' in texture and tastes much better.



I agree I spent ages looking for the original pastes after they changed in the supermarkets to the new ones. the local indian supermarket near me still stocks them and I was so relieved. i find the new ones too sweet aswell as your good reasons above.

hot

unlike this paste

Patak's pastes are awful.

I prefer to spend between 80-99p in my local international food store for much better quality paste (or simply just the spices!)

Cold, much like a Vindaloo.

thanks

Good price.
Wife makes curries from scratch now but when we used to buy the pastes they were decent enough I suppose.

Hot stuff

It seems strange how Tesco can say it is half price at £0.90p when they are selling the other sauces at £1.76 unless they are marked at buy 3 for the price of 2, then they are priced at £1.99. So, is the price for a jar normally £1.99, £1.80 or £1.76? The normal selling price in ASDA is £1.50. When is a deal not a deal? When it is in Tesco. Every Little Helps, The Littler The Better.
In short, 90p a nice price but not exactly half price.

Shop by my nans sells these for 89p if anyone is intrested.

That's really helpful, where does your nan live?

Just around the corner, next to the chippy!

I agree, these sauces are awful, artificial taste!! The best tasting sauces in the supermarket are the Loyd Grossman Sauces. And they are currently £1 in ASDA

meenas jalfrezi is by far the most authentic sauce i have tried

loyd grossman jars are too small

+1 on Meena's. Really good, made by the same company by Pataks as well surprisingly. Shame they are rarely on offer

Another good one is co-ops curries as well... also their naan breads are the closest to the takeaway naans I've seen.

Great, I need a nan to go with my curry.

My personal view is that the only Patak goop that's vaguely worth using (if you can't be bothered to do it from scratch) is their Phal which they rate as "6 chillies" hot and I rate quite a bit less - no, I'm not a burn your guts chilli freak.
