Brooklyn Delhi Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce

Quick review: Ive been looking for a goto pre-made Indian curry (in jar format) for as long as I can remember now. Easily two decades or more. I’ve yet to find any that really deliver the complexity of flavor from one of my most favorite cuisines.

I’d hoped to have found it in this Brooklyn Delhi Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce; a quite handsomely appointed jar, and one that garners plenty of fine reviews online. Sadly this wasn’t it. The simmer sauce has the same issues of pretty much all jars of curry I’ve tried – it’s too tangily-sweet and lacked real depth of flavor. It might work as a base for your own cooking, but the tartness is quite prominent.

In the messy picture below I served it with basmati, crunchy fried tofu, chickpeas and a finish of cilantro and cream.
