    Which is the best indian curry from a jar?!

    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

    Seeds of Change or Veeraswamy do really good homemade tasting sauces

    pataks tikka mmmmm x

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

    asdas own?

    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

    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.

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

    I like the Lidl sauces and they are only about 90p

    currysauce.com/. Their sauces are great.

    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.

    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

    Has anyone tried the Tarka curry sauce?

    Have I ever told you about the time I ate nothing but curry for two.weeks and got admitted to hospital...?

    OH likes morrisons own make no frills curry sauce its rather spicy for the rest of us though, we prefer sharwoods

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