Several years ago I took a vacation to the UK and found myself in a whole different culinary universe. (one that I liked, actually) One thing in particular that stuck out was the use of curry sauce, particularly on chips(fries). Suffice to say, I ate a lot while I was there. I had nearly forgotten about them until a few days ago. I recently found a local pub that serves cask conditioned, hand pulled ales. (yes!!) The last time I was there, the gentleman sitting next to me ordered curry chips from the kitchen. The smell alone brought back so many memories, along with a strong urge to order myself a plate as well. Alas, I know better than that. I may have been plastered, but my veggie-sensors detected butter and animal stock in the curry, along with who-knows-what else.
Since then I have not been able to get them off my mind. They are haunting me.
Has anybody had this particular style of curry sauce before? It's not like a regular Indian or Japanese curry. I've spotted a few recipes online, but none seem to fit the bill. The closest I have come to is this, which seems to be lacking something. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I figured I'd ask here before I went ahead and made it.
EDIT: The above recipe turned out pretty good! Nearly the same, actually. I feel, however, that it could have been simplified. Next time I will try a "curry gravy" type of thing. It seems like an awful lot of work for something to just throw on top of chips! I had lots of leftover curry so I whipped up a quick lentil dal and the rest is history! Booyah!
