How to make it

  • Once chopped, put celery, carrots and sliced green onions in a bowl and set aside
  • Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan
  • Add the minced onion, garlic and curry powder - cook for 2/3 mins
  • Add the chopped eggplant until it soaks up most of the oil
  • Add the uncooked prawns/shrimp cook for about a minute
  • Toss the pan or turnover the prawns after 30 seconds
  • Add all the remaining vegetables from your bowl - cook for a further two minutes moving and stirring all the time
  • Lastly add the 'Bisto' curry sauce - pre-prepared ( 8 spoonfuls into 2 cups of boiling water & stir) to the wok
  • Cook for a further minute or so
  • Serve with rice or noodles - pretty damn close to the real thing!

    I've come up with something which sounds interesting based on the ingredients from the label of the Chip Shop Curry Sauce. I don't know whether I can attach it here, but I will give it a go. Either that or I will post it as a new recipe!

    I am working on the flavours and ingredients without having ever tasted it ... and not likely to as I am in South Australia and prolly won't get hold of it. Have looked up the net and am coming up with a recipe. My email addy is if that will make it easier to converse over the creation of our new and wonderful sauce!!

    Have to agree Fran - we don't like preprepared ingredients either. Have a look at the rest of our recipes - this is a one-off. However, we did give a link to an alternative method of making the sauce from scratch which we are gonna try ourselves.

    Nevertheless we'd be interested in your take on it. Chinese Curry Sauce I think is a British Chinese invention and an attempt at a kind of tangy Madras blanded and bulked out by a little flour. Main spice ingredients are Paprika, Chilli, Ginger and Garlic. Over to you...

    Give me the flavour base for the curry sauce and I can probably emulate it. I've been schooled in Indian cuisine and can make the sauce from scratch ... if that's what you want. Personally, I hate premade sauces.
