Hey guys I have a question and I would love to have your honest answers.
Do you use curry sauces? If yes what is it that you look for when you buy a sauce - is it a specific dish you are trying to create, is it for ease, do you care about the taste, do you use pastes, do you prefer a sauce or a ready meal?
Any details and info on your thoughts would be great just trying to gauge how people feel about sauces these days.

Haven’t used a ready made sauce or spice mix in ages and especially don’t now that I’ve learned your methods. I use curry paste though when making Thai food but I will probably venture into making my own pastes soon!

We use sauces but have been making our curry from scratch more frequently as it tastes better and one can alter the ingredients to taste.

No matter how busy, I always make time to make my own curries and spice blends from scratch.

Stopped using any sauces since I have discovered with your help the magic beauty of choosing spices and using the pestle and mortar to make a perfect mix. Not only the food is delicious but all this ceremony is very healing after a stressful day. 🙂

Now that I learned to cook from scratch I would not buy a jar, unless it was branded by you. 😉
If a wanted an easy meal I would prefer ready meal.

Haven’t bought a sauce since cooking with you over a year ago @hari Ghotra
I make a Murgh sauce when having tandoori chicken.

I don’t use sauces now as I love making my own but used to use pastes and like another said, would add my own veg, meat and coconut milk!

I made about 2 quarts of curry sauce a couple of months ago and stored it in zipper bags in the freezer so when I need a quick curry it’s ready.

I don't use sauces but will use pastes from time to time. I find the sauces tend to taste 'processed' and once I started making my own from scratch I found the jarred sauces just didn't deliver on depth of flavour. However I do think a good paste is worth having and can be a useful thing to have.

what's the difference between a curry sauce and a masala

I cook everything from scratch now. I did buy jars and paste before I learned to cook your recipes as it was a quick. There is no comparison in taste and knowing what is in your food when making it from scratch than from a jar (plus I love getting the spices ready).

Indian Cusine has exploded and save for us, many people think it’s difficult to make masala. We know better. But if I had not found you Hari, I would buy a curry sauce. I’d follow the directions on the jar to make the dish.

Never!!! The alchemy of roasting and grinding spices , of adding them and frying them cannot be replaced by ready made sauces.

way to much sugar and little flavour your way is so much better cooking it from the heart. Then you know what ingredients you ste putting into the curry sauce.

I don’t use them, I’d prefer to cook from scratch. I have made some BIR base sauces and curries and they’re good, different to the authentic ones from @Hari Ghotra
