Conventional base sauce takes hours to produce, involving a lot of time, work and smell. We have simplified the sauce down to its essential ingredients, allowing chefs to quickly and easily add other ingredients to suit their own unique needs.

Use our instant base sauce as you would a conventional fresh base sauce, by making it up in advance and adding a measure of it to the cooking just as the restaurant chef does with a fresh base sauce. Or you can use it dry, adding it to a curry as you cook, followed by an appropriate measure of hot water. 60 grams of base sauce mix to 500ml of water gives a normal consistency sauce.

We also pack our base sauce with the curry spices from our retail kits, making it simple, easy, economical and quick for any restaurant to make curries at least as good as a traditional British Indian Restaurant.
