Mayflower Curry Sauce
It seems like the Slimming community has gone stir crazy over a certain takeaway style sauce, which of course is none other than, Mayflower Curry Sauce which comes in both medium and hot heat and can be bought at various grocery stores, including online.
I can see why Mayflower Curry Sauce is popular, it's pretty darn authentic when it comes to sauces. The nutritional information can be a little confusing though, as it gives you the nutritional information for the made up sauce when it would be much easier if the nutritional information was given for a certain amount of the dry powder/spice mix.
Can I freeze homemade Curry?
Good news! The sauce for this Chinese Chicken Curry freezes wonderfully, ensuring you have quick and convenient meals on hand. To be prepared for any craving or time constraint, consider doubling or even tripling the recipe and freezing individual portions. Having that flavourful sauce waiting in your freezer means you'll always be ready to whip up a delightful Chinese Chicken Curry whenever the need arises. Trust us, you'll be grateful to have it at your fingertips!
Protein Swaps for Chinese Curry
Vegetarian? Then don't worry, you can make this totally vegetarian-friendly, by swapping the chicken stock for a vegetable one and then serving this with just the vegetables and your side of choice.
Hey, you could even swap the chicken out for beef or shrimp (prawns) too, if you don't fancy chicken. The sauce is so versatile, just swap what stock you use to compliment the flavour.
How to make smooth sauces
You do need a blender of some description to make the amazing sauce part to this Chinese Chicken Curry. I use my Nutri Ninja Blender with Auto IQ to blend the sauce once ready. This blender is amazing. The auto IQ technology feature, mean it blends to a set pattern depending on what it is you are making. There is also an optional add-on for a food processor bowl, which is perfect for chopping and grating vegetables. Sauces and soups are literally so smooth, once complete in this amazing kitchen gadget.
Don't worry though, you don't need a fancy high tech blender like mine above, a good old immersion stick blender like the Koölle Electric Powerful 3-in-1 800 Watt Hand Stick Blender or a similar make will do the job too. The sauce might not be quite as smooth, but it will still be a darn good delicious sauce.
