Loyd Grossman Bhuna
Advantages: Tasty,flavoursome sauce
I was first introduced to Loyd Grossman's pasta sauces a couple of years ago by my mum a couple of years ago and I was really suprised and impressed with how they tasted. They tasted a lot fresher than I had expected and I really enjoyed all the different favours. Up until recently however I had not tried the curry sauces as they were considerably higher priced than a lot of other curry sauces by other leading brands. The Lloyd Grossman sauces were on offer recently though at 2 for £2, SO I decided to give them a go.
The picked up 2 different varieties, I chose the Korma and Bhuna. I'm not really a fan of really hot curry's, I am not all that brave with chilli's. I really enjoy the flavours but can't handle it if my mouth is on fire. A korma is my particular favourite as I love it's creamy taste but my husband prefers something a little more firery so we often comprimise and make a Bhuna. I enjoy a Bhuna as it has a real tomatoey taste and bags of flavour without being a 'blow your doors off' curry.
The Loyd Grossman Bhuna certainly had a very rich colour as you could see the sauce in the glass jar. I think that the Loyd Grossman products have a very distinctive classy look and you can always spot them on the supermarket shelves. I turned the jar round and had a look at the ingredients and I was pleased to see that there wasn't a great big long list and all of them seemed pretty paramount to the essence of the sauce.
Diced Tomatoes in Juice (36%), Fried Onion (20%) (Onion, Palm Oil), Water, Tomato Paste, Sunflower Oil, Red Pepper (2.5%), Sugar, Coriander, Garlic Pureť, Spices (Coriander, Chilli, Fenugreek, Cardamom, Cumin), Salt, Ginger Pureť, Concentrated Lemon Juice, Green Chilli Pureť, Bay Leaf, Garlic Powder
First time I made this, I opted to make a vegetable Bhuna as I personally don't eat meat although the rest of the family love it. I added the sauce to some softened onions, mushrooms, red pepper, courgette, potato and spinach and heated on the hob while I prepared some Basmati rice. I served up for myself, my husband and 2 small girls, and was impressed to see that there was just enough to feed us all, not bad as the jar is only 425g.
Tastewise, I was really impressed by how great it tasted, the flavour were fantastic and blended together really well. I loved the tomato, onion and red pepper flavour combination and it was spicey yet not too hot and both my girls really enjoyed the taste. I did stir a little natural yoghurt into their portions as they are only small just to cool it down a little but I think my 3 year old would have managed it without.
To sum up, this is another great offering in the Loyd Grossman range and I think these sauces are worth the extra pennies you pay however I would say stock up when they are on offer. I believe you usually pay £2.09 for a jar of the Bhuna sauce
