Mayflower Medium Curry Sauce Mix
Advantages: tasty and cheap
Disadvantages: none really
My son recently found a good recipe, which required curry sauce. We did not have the ingredients handy to make a fresh sauce so I took the five-minute trip up to Farmfoods to get some stuff.
I could not find some of the required ingredients here either so I found my self in a predicament. I thought I'd better find something else for tea so had a look around the aisles.
I found a packet of mayflower frozen curry sauce for £1.00 so I put that in my basket, further round the store I found the powdered version of the same sauce, so I picked that up as well, it was also £1.00.
Mayflower Curry Sauce
Two and a half minutes in the microwave, that's how long it takes to get a mild and very pleasant tasting curry sauce. Now I like this with chips................chips and curry sauce what could be more British lol
It is the powder version however that is the subject matter so lets get down to business. The packet says there is sufficient in the plastic tub to make 9 portions. I'd say that was pretty much correct if you like loads of curry sauce with your chips.
The instructions state to mix 340ml of cold water with 3oz of curry powder mix. Blend this together with a wooden spoon and place on the hob. Simmer for 2 minutes and you'd think you had just defrosted the other version.
Obviously you can scale down the water and mix to make just the quantity you need. This was what we did to participate in my sons recipe, which I shall give at the end of this review should you wish to try it out.
The Sauce thickens as it heats and the simmering just gives it that bit of a gloss finish. It smells delicious as it is heating and I was tempted to have a quick taste........temptation was never something that I resolved so I stuck my finger in and had a taste.
It was definitely curry sauce, but of the mild variety, which was fine by me, perfect for chips I thought. It was smooth with no lumps which for a sauce in this house is somewhat of a miracle. By the way I usually make the sauces not the wife.
I had now decided this would be suitable for my sons idea so I called him and he made his creation. Again it was delicious if not totally original. I enjoyed it immensely and would certainly have it again.
For a humble quid you get a curry sauce that in my opinion is worthy of the humble chip. It also could be used to make your beef or chicken curry if you don't like your curry hot. A definite further purchase and recommend from me.
Take a chicken breast and slice into four roughly equal lengths.
Make your own breadcrumbs or shop bought if you prefer
Beat an egg or two depending on how much you are making
Coat the Chicken firstly in the egg then in the breadcrumbs
Fry the chicken until cooked but not crispy
Remove from the frying pan and place on a baking tray on top of kitchen foil and place in a moderate oven.
Get some sticky rice and cook as per instructions
Make your curry sauce I'd recommend the above reviewed produce
Get you plates and a small mould for the rice.
Place the rice in the mould and press it in slightly, then tap it out onto your plate.
Get your chicken from the oven and add it too your plate
Finally pour over the curry sauce
ENJOY I did
Summary: A cheap quick and tasty curry sauce
