I purchased this in a multi-pack buy from costco thinking it would be a great alternative to making my own curry. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. I find the flavour to be very inauthentic. It really does taste like a pre-made sauce, very synthetic. I also didn't like the texture of the sauce itself, it wasn't smooth, quite gritty. In the future I think I'll stick to making mine from scratch.
I love chicken curry, but the only Indian restaurant in town closed a couple of years back. Since then I have filled the gap by using Patak products. I'm not sure how close to traditional Indian cooking this curry paste comes, but I love the flavour and the ease of use. My husband is a big fan too.
Baked on, slathered on, or just plain dipped, this product is heaven in a jar.
They are not kidding when they say it's a hot paste, but in moderation it's a tolerable heat. I usually use it with chicken or stir fry's. I will continue to buy this product and absolutely love their entire line!
