We love curry in our house, and I’ll often make my own, but when we need curry in a hurry, I will use pre made sauces. Just Ingredients asked if we would like to try a range of their curry sauces, and I was excited to see the variations we received.
Colour wise, it is a lot darker than I would have expected to find from a Korma, and I did find myself picking out raisins from the sauce during cooking. I always check the ingredients list for raisins, as they are one ingredient I really don’t like in a curry. They weren’t listed but I definitely picked a big handful out!
Taste wise, the Korma had a 2 chilli rating which I found quite spicy, but managed to eat. The flavours are very intense, but very tasty. I wouldn’t have known it was based on a Korma if I hadn’t read the packet beforehand.
The Tikka Masala was the next variety we tried. This looked a lot more authentic and tasted a little milder than the Korma did in my opinion. The colours were vibrant and inviting against the rice we served it with. There was a slight fruity taste to the Tikka which was nice.
My favourite was the Coconut and Orange Goan curry. I have never tried a Goan curry before which is a popular seafood curry from Goa with Portuguese influences. The flavours were strong, and the added coconut milk help tone down the spiciness of the curry which I think the family appreciated after the Korma.
Each curry from Just Ingredients comes in a 400g pouch which serves 3-4 people. I think you could stretch this by adding some water to rinse out the pouch with as well. Each pouch is £4.20 which makes it slightly more than I would normally pay for a curry sauce, but the uniqueness in flavours makes them very attractive.
