Spice Pots Basic Curry Sauce


Use this simple and gently spiced tomato sauce with a number of other recipes.  Delicious with our Lamb Koftas or Tandoori Masala Spiced Chicken, or simply with some leftover vegetables or chicken to make a lovely curry.

Serves 4-6

1 tablespoon of  oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 400ml tin of chopped tomatoes
2/3 teaspoons of either Goan Spice (hot), Bhuna Spice (medium)  or Korma Spice (mild)
1 teaspoon soft brown sugar
300ml single cream
1 tablespoon of  ground almonds
Salt, to taste
Coriander, to garnish

To make the sauce, heat the oil and cook the onion and garlic until soft, then add the tomatoes and cook these down until the paste is thick.  Add the spices and sugar and cook for about a minute.  Stir in the cream and almonds.   Now add koftas, chicken or  leftover vegetables!
