apart from Pataks, other curry sauce at supermarkets (in NZ) you can get they are utter rubbish

hence I don't eat curry lately - means I don't cook curry at home. strictly speaking I don't know how to make proper Indian curry from scratch!........

think we've been to every Indian Curry place in Wellington while Paul was here (for 2 years). Because he is mad about Thai and Curry

Great India Restaurant was best

two fat indians in christchurch is good. Go in tell them that you are english.. or curry and there you go! easy. I've found (rash generalisation time) the kiwis like the idea of spicy food, as long as it isn't spicy.. Saying that I think most of the curry in the UK is crap.. but I've been to india

My favourites are the banana leaf thalis with a mountain of rice and about a dozen different curries and pickled something-or-rathers. Breakfast of champions are roti canai and dhal dip and giant lava hot coffees for the caffeine fix.

I just had dhal for my tea.. and very nice it was too!

We found this dish, normally called something like 'house special' that was a three curry thing on one plate. Red, yellow and green curries from mild to spicy. Bloody great it was too! no idea what was in it tho.. .

telling them you are British won't make any real difference - perhaps they can make it nicer (Specially formulated ) for you (if you ask) but they will charge you more. why not?

surely no one would believe I am British :curse:

In the same vein as the Indian, I miss good Mexican food, the stuff I have had here has been a bit tex-mex (see Sweet Mothers Kitchen) or not bad (Flying Burritos on a good day!) but nothing fantastic! We had 2 or 3 great Mexicans in Edinburgh and I miss them!!!
