There is some ring about those chip shop curry sauce that is uniquely British and we love it in our chips bought from a chip shop. In our house no fish and chips dinner is complete without mushy peas (another British tradition) and curry sauce. Here’s a simple recipe to make your own. The result is fantastic.
½ onion, finely chopped
1 apple, peeled and finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
½ tbsp curry powder
150 ml water
Black pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a saucepan, and add the onion, apple and garlic. Cook over a medium heat for 5-10 minutes, until everything is very soft. Add the curry powder and mix well. Then pour over the water and add black pepper. Bring to a boil amd simmer gently for around 10 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes.
Now add the cornflour (mixed in some cold water). Simmer till the sauce gets thicker. Use a hand blender to break down the chunks and smoothen the sauce. Depending on your taste you can make it completely smooth or leave a bit of texture. Heat it well and serve with chips.
