Morrisons Value Curry Sauce
Advantages: Easy to use, tastes ok
Disadvantages: It is a cheap option and theres no getting over that really
When it comes to curry I love the stuff though I'm not going to pretend I'm a master chef in the making cos I'm not! I tend to buy a jar of cooking sauce for ease and fry off some chicken add my favoured chickpeas to it and voila job done.
I'll buy any type of curry sauce really as I don't have a preference and when I spotted this product in Morrisons I realised I have tried and written about many other value curry sauces of this type so for 12p I had to try this!
440g see-through glass jar with a gold twist on/off lid to the top of it. Around the middle there is a yellow label and in dark green writing I'm told it is Morrisons 'Value' Curry Sauce, the size is stated (as I've listed already), I'm told it is suitable for Vegetarians and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there. On the back of the label other information includes ingredients and allergy advice being listed there is a full nutritional rundown chart on there, I'm told how to store it and how to heat it through and contact details for Morrisons are given. It's a cheap looking jar but I do like being able to see the sauce through the jar and it's informative enough.
The Sauce Itself:
Well you can use this as a dipping sauce with chips or something in which case all you need to do then is to gently heat this sauce in a saucepan for a few minutes or of course you can boil or fry up ingredients and then add this sauce to it, boil it all up and then turn the heat down and allow it to simmer for around 20 minutes.
The sauce itself is a light brown colour and rather runny really. As you open the jar up you get a distinctive smell of curry. The sauce is rather smooth and glossy with just a couple of sultanas in it and little lumps of onion but it isn't a chunky sauce don't get me wrong.
Myself I fry off chicken, onions and peppers and when cooked through I drain the fat off and dump this sauce over it all and simmer it for a few minutes with added pre-cooked chick peas. Of course you can use any meat you wish to or vegetables or soya products or a combination of anything.
When cooked through the sauce is rather thin so I find with this I need alot of ingredients to sap up the sauce but ingredients do sop it up a little bit.
Taste wise well it's mild curry sauce with a hint of sweetness to it and sometimes you can detect the subtle hint of chilli though it isn't blow your brains out hotness!
It's a well blended curry sauce and it isn't bad quality. It is flavoursome and for me this is a rather good base sauce for a curry. I like to add my own bits and bobs to this and to experiment with it. I like to add my own herbs and spices and things to it and sort of pep up it up a bit! Not a bad sauce and it's a great price for sure!
