Default Curry Sauce (Chinese style)

I know many ex pats. in the US have a problem getting a decent Indian curry here is the US, however what about the Chinese style curry found in Chinese take-aways and some chip shops in the UK?
Search no more, I have found a solution;

It is called S & B Golden curry sauce. It comes in a block from which you can make a curry sauce to serve with noodles, rice, chips etc. or add meat and veggies for a pretty authentic UK style Chinese curry ( even though S & B is actually Japanese.)
I have included a picture from a UK website so you know what you are looking for;

http://www.wingyipstore.co.uk/product-057612.html

I originally found S & B Golden curry sauce in Little Tokyo in downtown LA however I have since bought it from Pavillions in Los Angeles( but they only stock the medium hot unlike Little Tokyo which has the hot ).

A search for S & B Golden curry sauce on the internet also comes up with numerous on-line sources............... now if I could just find some prawn crackers to go with it?!?!

What you bought is called curry "roux" blocks for Japanese curry. Yes, the Japanese have their own variant of curry...

Anyway, I would think that you can find boxes of that curry roux (Japanese branded) in Chinese grocery stores. At least that's what I've found where I live.

The exact same sauce as the one pictured ( ok its in a Golden box ) in the link is available at Super Walmart. Its in the International food aisle ....

Its very very good.... almost as tasty from a Chinese Take Away .....

Are you after ready to eat prawn crackers? If so, they go stale very quickly so you're more likely to find the ready to fry prawn crackers in the same Chinese grocery shops.

You just fry them in really hot oil and they puff up to become prawn crackers.

I love that stuff. I always use to get sweet and sour chicken balls with egg fried rice, but I always substituted the sweet and sour with curry sauce. Thats going to be the first meal I have whenever I next visit Blighty.

It must have been difficult for the farmer just to raise male chickens. I prefer chicken breast myself

They are sometimes known as "Shrimp Chips" Look in your local Asian market.

I have also found that some take-aways will have them, but they will not be on the menu, you will have to be creative when you try to describe them

My daughter will be very happy if I can find that near us - she really really misses the curry sauce and like Pimbot she subsituted the sweet and sour sauce on her sweet and sour chicken with curry.

I prefer the chinese gravy and I miss it so much. Our local chinese take away in Bristol had a lovely garlicy gravy that was just perfect with sweet and sour and the chinese by my mums in Liverpool had really great, thick, dark gravy that was perfect with chicken fried rice. bugger... I'm salivating just at the thought of it.

I think this will be the ticket, We put less water in than recommended as we like the sauce thick, I am sure if you make it as recommended it is more of a gravy consistancy. As I said, do a search for "S & B golden curry sauce" it pulls up at least 20 sources for it to order from the net. I do not think you will be disappointed. Only caveat is it does contain MSG ( I am sure it does in the UK too)

Great, don't add too much water though ( we put less in than recommended). Remember, you can always add more, but you can't take it out.
Want to report back with how it went/tasted?

Default Re: Curry Sauce (Chinese style)

Found a recipe to make curry sauce to put on chips (not French fries).

See-
http://www.greatbritishkitchen.co.uk...currysauce.htm

Looks straightforward enough. I won't be trying it. I prefer genuine Indian and Thai curries myself.
