    CHINESE TAKEAWAY CURRY SAUCE

    As a lot of you would like to know how to make the curry found in Chinese takeaways - here is the secret.

    Add the following:
    Garam masala powder
    Termeric powder
    Sugar
    Water
    Oil
    Sweet and sour sauce

    Is it necessary to add Sweet and sour sauce? What can you substitute that with as I don't want to make 2 sauce to get curry sauce.

    also, could you make this in large quantities and freeze?

    Please let me know where you are going wrong chika. This is one of the easiest things to make and is one of the easiest money spinners for restaurants.

    PRAWN ON TOAST

    Firstly grab about 500g of fresh Prawns, remove the shell and take out the black gut on the spine then chop into small pieces.
    Finely chop up 1 large Spring onion.
    Lightly beat 1 egg white.

    Add into a mixing bowl with:

    1 tablespoon of cornflour
    1 teaspoon of Sesame oil
    1 teaspoon of dark Soy sauce (I recommend Kikoman C000039)

    Mix in really well and rechop anything that's too big (you could alternatively pop everything into a processor with a coarse blade)

    Toast 10 slices of bread in a toaster or grill and then spread the mixture onto each slice (If you have made too much mixture then toast more bread) The mixture should stay on if you lift the bread, if not then try spreading it in harder or use less mix.

    Get a jar of sesame seeds and evenly coat all your mixture bits on the toast. Press it a little if they do not stick easily (and use a little more sesame oil to act as a glue if this does not work).

    Heat up half a litre of peanut oil in a deep fat fryer and dunk the toast in when the oil is hot. The hot oil should seal the mixture and sesame seeds in.
    It is ready when the sesame seeds change colour to a dark brown colour.

    Drain on some kitchen roll/ clean teatowel/ oil drainer

    You can make the mixture in bulk and freeze for a later date to fry. You can also make up the toast and freeze for frying later too. That is common practice in Takeaways and restaurants. The thing to look out for when buying from a restaurant or takeaway is the amount of mixture included. It is often disguised by the amount of sesame seeds.
