Island curry for everyone

Make authentic curries quickly, using Island Curries paste

Our paste is quite mild, so for those who prefer more ‘heat’, an extra ¼ teaspoon of chilli powder will make a ‘hot’ curry; ½ teaspoon of chilli powder will make a ‘very hot’ curry

Our paste is preservative free, gluten free, and vegan friendly, containing no fillers, nuts or MSG

Khorma-style curry paste (formerly 'Lamb')

ideal with lamb. beef. pork, chicken, fish or vegetables

This khorma-style curry paste is heavier and darker in texture and colour than most and is a very aromatic curry paste. The flavour is very distinct with cinnamon, paprika and cumin giving it a slightly sweet taste. Another delicious alternative, is to replace the addition of a natural yoghurt (we recommend: Tamar Valley) with a product like Tamar Valley Mango yoghurt. A slightly sweeter flavour is then achieved, which has proven to be very complementary to this curry paste and also very popular.

Vindaloo curry paste

ideal with beef, pork, lamb, chicken, fish and vegetablles

This is a classic Goan Vindaloo paste. It is a very traditional spice mix, and meets with all the guidelines for a great Vindaloo! Cloves, vinegar, and star anise give this curry paste a very tangy and warm taste. May be used with any meat as desired, or even with vegetables for a great vegetarian Vindaloo!

Recipe Suggestion, serves 2 - 4

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion
  • 1 - 2 tbsps cooking oil
  • 1 x 50g Island Curries Vindaloo Paste per 500g Gravy beef
  • 1 can diced tomatos
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 bunch of fresh corriander
  • 1 Pink Eye or Dutch Cream potato
  • 200g fresh green beans 
  • 1/2 cup of peas

Method

  1. In hot pan, add oil and brown the onion thoroughly
  2. On high heat, add 500g of trimmed, diced beef per 50g satchet Island Curries Vindaloo Paste
  3. Stir for approx 10 minutes, there is no need to add water, as the beef cooks the juices will come out to form a simmering curry. By this time it is smelling terrific and you should taste a little of the juice to get a feel for how much curry powder to add.*
  4. Add diced tomatoes, diced potato, beans, peas and 1/2 cup chopped coriander
  5. Reduce heat to low, simmering slowly until cooked (1 hour or so)
  6. Add chilli powder to taste, 1/4 teaspoon for Hot, 1/2 teaspoon for Very Hot
  7. Add 1/2 to 1 can coconut milk to taste, simmer briefly
  8. Serve with Basmati rice prepared as per above (see Khorma recipe)

*the level of chilli heat required will vary person to person so if some want a mild flavour and others want hot, here is a great 'cheat'; either serve some before adding a little more chilli powder to the pot for the more experienced, OR, have some white pepper on the table to heat things up to your taste.
