Iceland Curries

Recommended Posts

Got a new range of street food out. I bought 4 of em for a fiver at the weekend.

Very very good. The Gunpowder chicken is the show stopper for me.

No need for takeaways ever again. :Passusabeer:

It's hard to find a decent frozen curry. I like this one - not that it's weight watchers. Have to pop in to Icelands later to try them.

Interesting. Had an exchange the week before last with a guy on hotukdeals who was raving about their curries.

Think they've had a decentish rep for a while.

From a quick google they seem to have ripped off some restrauteur in Liverpool.

Names n all.

Oh dear dear.

 

Seriously that gunpowder chicken is as good as a proper indian. Love it.

I make half decent edible curries too so i'm golden.

I used to love Vestas crispy noodles. Dorset 1983.

When they puffed up, my mum and dad had never seen the like.

I think they thought there'd been a mix up at the hospital when i started cooking this stuff.

Cooking you say?  You added water and heated.  A posh pot noodle  xD  I loved vesta curry, it was the Saturday night treat.  My, how much simpler it all was back then..

Some white guy (Kipling) makes up a name that sort of sounds indian (Mowgli), which is then appropriated by a British-Indian to promote their restaurant as though it was Indian, who then appropriate common Indian casual food names (gunpowder chicken) to the British high street, and then complains when someone else does the same thing.

People should just calm down.

[Liverpool, so 'calm down' as in:

not:

]

[iceland should counter-sue -- she's clearly only done it for the free marketing]

The crispy noodles needed dripping in hot oil. To puff them up.

I think the noodles were in a seperate bag inside a "Chow Mein" box.

I bloody loved Vesta in the early 80s.

I've been to Iceland and I don't remember them eating curry.

I had some whale though.

Maybe curried whale will be next.

If the list of ingredients is examined, what will we see? 

I love curry but those strong flavours are good at hiding a multitude of sins.

I was thinking more of E numbers, stabilisers, preservatives, flavour-enhancers, etc.  In theory there should be little need for these in a strongly flavoured frozen product, but at £1.25 each I suspect they wouldn't be able to afford to make them with the best fresh produce.

Yet we are all getting fatter. It’s not lard that does it then is it. 

No.

Lard fat just coated outside.

People gave up eating fried stuff to eating with fat mixed in for better mouth experience.
