The bisto one is horrid, my sister swears by the makeway ones it comes in a powder, I know ASDA sell it as I have ordered it for her before. I think most asian food stores sell it too.

Could try http://www.greatbritishkitchen.co.uk...shopcurrysauce
One day I might be more organised...........:confused:

I've seen packets of it (just add water, Knorr possibly, bound to be own brand available) in supermarkets before. I did have a packet, but lost it when SWMBO threw out my antique food collection.

Not that instant is very OS though. Mmmmmm now I fancy some....

They used to sell a little paper packet of Chip Shop Curry in the local butchers years ago, I can't remember the make but it will annoy me till it comes back to me.

Yep was going to say it's a chinese style usually they use. Watch it with the white tshirts/blouses of course as it usually stains good!

Sorry it's spelt makyway I think, sunflower brand is another one aswell as Yips I think my local butcher stocks. Maysan make the maykway one which also do pastes etc. Easy to get up here as it's made in Newcastle, but I think ASDA is the only other one that definately has it. I think most have trans fats/hydrogenated veg oil in them which is something I try to avoid, so well worth trying the other
One day I might be more organised...........:confused:

I agree with lil_me about the maykway (sp?) stuff.

It really does taste like chippie stuff (also like curry from the chinese if you can be bothered to put some onions and chicken in)

I found one that comes in a tub (it's a concentrate) from Thai's R Us. Just checked the label and it's made by Keejays Ltd. You could try contacting them to see if they have a stockest near you It's not yellow though but green and it's absolutely delish!

The "Value" Tesco curry sauce is very much like the Chip Shop stuff too (unfortunately). It is I think 17p a can, it is very yellow and fairly sweet too

HTH

Well it's been annoying me for 4 months LOL but I can finally report that I managed to get hold of the curry mix I mentioned on this thread.

It's called Dinaclass and my local butcher has hunted it down for me so I bought it today. I can't wait to see if it's as good as it used to be.
