I love quick fixes, and I am not ashamed of using instant curry sauce instead of pounding my own curry paste. A while ago, Bee from Rasa Malaysia featured a delicious curry chicken (咖喱鸡) recipe, and she introduced to me the A1 brand of curry sauce which she used (and don’t mind me sharing on my blog too, thank you!).
It can be bought readily in Singapore, at about S$2+ a packet. Ever since I discovered this curry, my pantry is never without it, for who can resist whipping up a delicious local-style curry in less than 30 minutes? My only tiny grouse with the curry sauce is that it is not hot enough, but this is easily solved by adding some chilli to up the heat meter. This is definitely one of my favourite local home-cooked food, whipped up with very little effort.
