    Can anyone tell me where I can get restaurant type Indian Massala sauce

    Mod & Ed
    My son has a longterm illness and at times has real problems swallowing, he loves the thick almondy massala sauce from Indian takeaways/restaurants, and we can often puree other things and mix it in with this sauce, up until now my local takeaway has supplied me with a couple of tubs as and when needed ( cold so I could store at home ) but they have just changed hands and the new owners say they cannot do this due to health and safety.
    I have tried several others, all happy to sell me just the sauce, but has to be bought hot etc, have tried googling and can't find anything, a friend suggested mixing ground almonds, cream, curry powder and tom sauce, but it's just awful lol.
    So if anyone can suggest where I could buy it in store or online, or has a recipe for it, I would be extremely grateful.
    I think this type sauce has helped my son gain weight, he chokes badly on more liquid type sauces, and isn't able to chew and swallow vey well.

    Thanks

    aldi,s korma sauce is brill so i bet there tikka massala would be good too, ive tried them all and theres are one of the cheapest but the nicest , the korma sauce has flaked almonds in it , guarantee youll love it

    wish i could help - is there a local cash & carry type place that can help - or an ethnic shop like you get chinese supermarkets might do something that is more like the real thing - sorry not much help.

    I live in Devon, not many about, but thanks anyway:thumbsup:

    pataks.co.uk their stuff is available at the supermarkets. soulds like youre using a pasanda sauce maybe if its nutty.
    good luck

    pataks do some indian sauces........
    you can find them in all the super markets!!

    find out the contact details of the previous owners of the restaurant/takeaway from the current occupiers. i would then get the recipie from them. Failing that i would go to a another indian restaurant or takeaway and describe the sauce to them and ask them to make it . i doubt very much you would get anything similar from a jar from the supermarket .

    I have found these to be excellent, they sell online and I think the passanda is the nearest one to your description (typically out of stock at the moment!) currysauce.com/ite…d=7 They sell them in some stores as well.

    I was just thinking, perhaps if the store bought sauces are too thin add some extra ground almonds or some coconut milk to them to make them a bit thicker? Not sure if that'd work but could be worth a try as a last resort!

    yes Pataks are good and also look at Sharwoods..
    but th best i must say is Mumtaz. look at Mumtaz products in Asda/Siansburys
    and on their website.

    also.. where abouts are you ?

    Why don't you try making one up using a curry paste...then you can make it thicker as you require.... I used to buy curry pastes from a local craft market but I'm sure i've seen them in the super markets too.

    Hello

    I don't know where in Devon you are but Hira in Exeter is brililant for Asian foods, and they are really helpful as well. I think you should find them if you google the name. They are just behind the Odeon Cinema on Sidwell Street.

    I would also recommend a curry sauce by Madhuban, it's delicious and sold in tubs. It is made in Surrey (where they have a restaurant) but I have seen it for sale all over the place, sometimes in farm shops which do nice, homemade sort of things, you know what I mean. I guess you might be looking for a pasanda or something like that if you are after something with almonds. You could try getting a recipe and having a go yourself, there are tonnes of recipes online, the BBC Food website is always good as a place to start.

    I find almonds are often much cheaper in Asian shops, but they can also be reasonable in the supermarket if you buy them from the world food section instead of the health food bit where they charge a fortune. Lidl also sell them quite cheaply too.

    Hope you find something. I know it is a pain to make it yourself but it's a good option if you don't have any luck elsewhere.

    edit: Have a look at this link

    madhuban.co.uk/

    You can order the sauces online directly from them. They are delicious, I can vouch for them!

    Oh, I bet you could find something at Dart's Farm in Topsham as well. They have a really nice food/deli shop there I seem to remember. Might be worth giving them a ring.

    Also here is a recipe for a pasanda:

    curryhouse.co.uk/rsc…htm

    It looks quite good from the recipe, not too sweet which can sometimes happen. Here is another one, slightly different, from the BBC

    Hope you find something nice for your son!

    Thanks very much to everyone, your help is really appreciated, and lots of fab places to try! Unfortunately the supermarket Pataks type ones ar not thick enough, have tried them, but not suitable, but some of the other ones look just what I am looking for, rep to all

    It definately sounds like a passanda sauce as previously mentioned. A massala sauce is usually brown and more savoury than almondy

    The tikka massala sauces I have found in shops tend to be more spicy than the mild one I have at local curry house.

    Passanda by nature is almondy and almost sweet and I think this is the sauce you need.
