I use this sauce for most of my curry dishes since last year, I discovered it in Sainsburys one day and it was only 10p for a 440g jar, which at the time I thought it was an incredible price for a sauce. I tried it and I found it was perfect and I used it ever since and I have found it to be even cheaper at times for 8p or even less and for that price I just had to stock my cupboards, so I have alot of them at the moment to use. I just fry a few onions in a saucepan with a little oil and add some chicken, beef, pork or a little minced beef to it and cook it slowly for about 5 to 7 minutes and then I add the sauce and simmer for around 15 minutes stirring ...

I love to make myself a curry though I wouldn't know where to start from scratch so recently I've been purchasing the odd curry sauce mix/jar etx along with piece of chicken and an onion and when I saw this at 4p a jar I couldn't believe it was so cheap I had to try one out! lol. The Packaging: 440g roundish glass jar with a white screw on/off lid to the top of it and it has a white label that goes around it's main 'body' On the front of that all in orange and white writing I'm told it is Sainsbury's 'Basics' Curry Sauce 'Simpler selection, but the spice is right', there is a scribble of what I think is meant to be a pile of spice, there is an at a ...

I bought a jar of this curry sauce in Sainsbury's for just 9 pence last week. I have previously tried the Tesco Value one and found it to taste fine, so I thought that I would give this one a try, too. As it is so cheap, it wouldn't matter too much if it wasn't very nice, and I planned to use it as a base for my curry, with other spices added to it. The jar contains 440g of curry sauce, and the label has the Sainsbury's Basics logo, which says that it is a 'simpler selection, but the spice is right'. The sauce is a brown/orange colour, and has the appearance of a curry sauce that you might get at the chip shop. The taste is fairly mild, but this is fine, as ... Read the complete review

I have been samplying from sainsbury's basic range , in a bid to save a few pounds . I have discovered a a bargain , for just 9 pence , I have discovered a jar of the basics range of curry sauce . This jar is clear and see through so that you can see the contents inside, and a full jar which contains 440grams, is enough for a whole big oven proof dish full of curry. The jar is easy to open with a screw lid, and contains a really great tasting curry sauce which i think makes for a lovely curry . I usuelly cut some skinless chicken breasts in to mouthfulls and in to bite size portions . I then heat two spoons full of oil in to a large ... Read the complete review

It's always a great idea to try and save money in your weekly shop, but buying a jar of sauce for as little as 9p when the premium brands charge between £1 and £2, could be seen as a little extreme. With ingredients as appetising as water, tomato puree and onion, you'd be forgiven for feeling a bit sceptical about this sauce. But fear not. It has taste and it has spice. I related it to a tikka masala sauce as it's certainly like a spicy tomato sauce. I'm used to tikka masalas and kormas, and it's spicier than those, but it's not overly spicy, even for me. It's about right. The first time I tried the sauce I made about a third of the jar and poured it over some ... Read the complete review
