Definitely not worth a 4 chilli rating.
Tesco Vindaloo curry sauce was the best but after they stopped selling it I switched to the Madras. It used to have a nice "heat" to it, now it seems they have changed the recipe and it is very mild. Unfortunately this seems to be happening to all brands of curry sauce.
We always bought this sauce as it was excellent & made a really good curry. We've just bought & used what we thought was our usual Tesco Madras & what a shock we had. It's bland & gloopy! What on earth has happened to it? It's probably been adjusted to have lower sugar & salt & it's ruined! Never, ever again will we buy this sauce!
Good short-cut base for a curry
Surprisingly good. Might add a little more chili if you like genuinely spicy curry, but a pretty good base to work from; can add lentils etc to make it your own.
Bring your own curry powder.
On a hotness scale of one to ten, one being tomato paste and an onion, ten being a Madrass from an indian resturant in the North of England where you asked for it to be 'spicy'. But now your forehead's beading, your tougue is so numb a dentist would be proud. Sips of plain old ice water taste like nectar. And with every mouthfull you're torn between a desire for bed and a masochistic impulse for more. Then I would rate this about 1.5.
Hot and spicy with true eastern flavours. Just how a Madreas curry should be!
Amazing sauce, why not available though?
Love this sauce, pretty well live on it, now not available why Tesco? Please bring it back.
It's fine - don't go changing it!
Pleasantly surprised at the flavour and heat. Quite hot for a supermarket jar sauce - and that's from someone who enjoys a good vindaloo and occasional Phall. Taste is subjective so YMMV. Chopped up a couple of red and green peppers, chucked in some prawns and served with naan. Quick easy meal when can't be bothered to cook from scratch.
Very nice, hot and spicy.
If you want to ramp up the heat, then this is the one for you. Spicy and hot, as a Madras should be.
I like a good hot tasty curry
Really tasty and nice and hot make a real good curry best I have found in curry sauce
Tasteless, no spice at all
The sauce is tasteless and quite runny. It's just a tomato sauce with a very small amount of spices. The front says "extra hot" and four pictures of chillies, but there's hardly any chilli flavour to it.
