Seeds of Change Madras Sauce

Well OK! Today I'm gonna test out this Seeds of Change Madras sauce and let you know what I think about it. I am a big fan of Indian food, anything spicy really, and anything curry. I love it. The hotter the better. My husband and I spent two weeks in Thailand for our honeymoon. While we were there we ate the spiciest curry. We always told the waiters we wanted "Thai spicy". They would look at us like we were nuts because usually the "farang" (thats what they call us) cant handle the "Thai spicy". It's that hot.
We had dinner with a couple from Finland one night, and the girl asked for her food mild, not spicy, and she freaked out when she tasted it. She said that the food was so hot that she thought she was going deaf. She was seriously worried, she almost cried I think.
Check out this picture of Kevin eating at a night market in Krabi Town. I think this may well have been the spiciest food Kevin and I had ever eaten. It was so delicious.

So anyway... I love curry and we actually took a cooking class while we were in Thailand, so I can make a passable Thai curry at home. The problem is, I absolutely suck at making Indian curry. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but it never, ever, ever turns out right. So I've tried numerous different already made sauces and boxed mixes and of course none of it has been worth a shit. Kevin did make homemade paneer (Indian cheese) one time and it was very good.
So I have basically given up on the idea of ever having good Indian curry at home, but when I saw this jar at the health food store I just couldn't help myself. So, tonight I'm gonna saute up some chicken and simmer it in this sauce for about ten minutes, serve it with rice, and keep my fingers crossed.

  1. Delphine,
    Hey, good job on your blog! I'm with ya on the spicy. My Thai friend gave me the greatest gift ever and told me some of her recipes. I have a Masaman curry (which is really close to Indian, but it's not that spicy) and a green curry recipe if you want.
