    Asian Home Gourmet

    Has anybody tried any of their curry pastes?
    I went down my local foodmart last night and they have 4 different Indian curry pastes in stock, I got the rogan josh and vindaloo, 40baht per satchet and supposedly enough for 4 meals, looking at the directions though 1 takes 350grams of lamb, the other 450grams of chicken, so probably enough for 2 meals at most from each.

    A chicken vindaloo from their website, doubt my one will look as good as this.



    My curry paste packets.



    So are they any good?

    I'm glad you posted this DD. I gave a pack of the Asian Home Gourmet Rogan Josh paste I bought overseas to a couple of Brit friends and they loved it.

    They've been trying to buy it but couldn't find any. I can see a couple of happy Brits once they hear the news it's available in Foodmart.

    I'm making the chicken Korma today. I love it. You have to be sure you don't add too much water to the cooked chicken when you add the paste or it gets too soupy. I always add a little more coconut cream than is called for in the recipe.

    I used to like 'em, they and 'Lobo' were the only pastes you could get in smaller quantities. 'Mae Ploy' was always so big and specialized in Thai dishes anyway.

    I usually bought the Singapore food pastes.

    Is the other one available 'Butter Chicken'?

    I picked one up in a similar packet in Villa Market and it was delish. Well worth 40 bleedin' baht.

    Yup. Very nice.

    You obviously add tomato paste, cream and butter.

    They have butter chicken on their website but its not one I eat so i didn't notice if the shop had them in stock.

    Range / Indian Indian Butter Chicken

    A popular Northern Indian (Moghul) dish, it is rich with tomato, sweet spices, cloves and fenugreek, yet mild enough to appeal to all family members. Butter Chicken is usually cooked with cream or milk and can be served with naan, roti, paratha or simply plain rice.

    Well I just had the rogan josh, when my girlfriend was cooking it the smell was amazing, sadly she didn't think it was spicy enough for me and stuck all the rest of the curry paste in, way too rich, and yes I did explain to her to just use half the paste before she started, first few spoonfuls were absolutely great, then it just got a bit too rich for me, probably best to cook this yourself rather than let an idiot do it for you.

    I just had my chicken korma. Made it myself. I'm no expert on curries but these things are great IMO and damn easy to make.

    They have all these in our local supermarkets here.

    I have never tried them though as there are 3 or 4 Indian stalls within staggering distance of my place where i can get a rather good curry for between S$3 and S$4, and no washing up to worry about

    I tell a lie. My wife just admitted she uses the Thai Green curry one. Its not bad, but again I would rather just go to the Thai stall 5 minutes walk away, but ofcourse I have to give her face and pretend its delicious

    Many years ago I relied on the packet stuff for my daily curry hit, then a woman in Malaysia showed me how to make my own homemade curries, not touched the packet stuff since.
    I prefer the Malaysian / Singaporean style of curries anyway, so its easier to make my own.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking
