Well I never - Aldi frozen curry

Recommended Posts

Tried the £1.29 Aldi frozen Chicken Tikka Masala a couple of weeks back and I am amazed at how good they really are - I add a couple of frozen Indian Snacks (Samosa's, Bhaji's ) and can enjoy a brilliant Indian meal for under £2. Not very spicy but a touch of Hot Mango Chutney or just Tabasco sauce soon sorts that out. I'm not a massive eater and one portion fills me but even if you ate 2 the cost would still be under £3.50 - about what you would pay for the rice alone at a takeaway.

Yes they are good value for money.

I find the Iceland curry and chinese takeaway style meals better though.

Morrisons do a cracker called Volcanic Vindaloo, very nice too!

£3 per portion.

To convert the Aldi CTM into something ,er, warmer - just add 3-4 drops of Encona Carolina Reaper Chilli sauce (Tesco sell it) - not suggesting it's hot but my bottle is kept in the gun safe!!

Ha ha I like a little heat but not pain.

When warm food feels like it's still bubbling hot that's me at end of my comfort zone. Can't taste anything after that.

Just how hot is volcanic Morrisons curry, I am sure I read on here long ago mixed reports. Jalfreizi is usually as hot as I eat.

I regard it as hot, makes my nose run and I sweat quite a bit, very nice though.

Hotter than a Vindaloo and getting on towards a Phall.

Go on, try one!

My brother in law tried a Phall at a restaurant in Bicester a few years back - now neither of us were girly where it comes to heat and we both worked part time at another restaurant where we had a bet with the head chef that he could not cook anything so hot that we couldn't eat it (he never did) but this Phall was deadly and we seriously considered calling an Ambulance at the time - he was sweating profusely, shaking and the veins on his head were so pronounced that they looked like he had wiring under his skin.

Too hot for me then, vindaloo isn't for me, too hot to taste.

You don't know what you are missing!

I think I do, mouth pain and ring sting.

I have no intention of feeling like Gordon the Gopher for eating a volcanic curry.

Saying that I'm going to grow some Carolina Reaper chillies this year. Let me know if you'd like some seeds 👍

Madras Hot Chicken Tikka Masala is the dish my local (ish) Indian make for me - never tasted anything like it, it's simply sublime. Onion Bhajis the size of a Tennis Ball done crispy and I'm in heaven - if you are ever in Stony Stratford try the Kardamom Lounge in the high street.
