    Patak's Vindaloo Curry Paste (with turmeric and chilli) is very nice, though too mild for my tastes. I topped the heat factor up with Encona West Indian Chilli Sauce.

    I had some with my chicken last night.

    Though the sauce was a bit "dusty". Probably because though I put in the requisite amout of canned tomatoes, I did not put in any water.

    I don't recommend the canned Kronenburg (extra smooth) though. It has a widget in the can. I prefer lager with a "fizzy bite" and this lacked any.

    The Bombay Mix I had for desert was also mucho goodo, though I can't remember the brand but it was a very large, cheap pack. (£1.27)

    low-fi version of him.

    He reviews the posh and expensive.

    I am happy to review the humble and cheap.

    Next week: My take on Quavers, Skips and Weetos.

    A guy goes to doctor and says "My knob's gone all orange"
    Doctor wonders if it's a lifestyle problem and asks him how he spends his free time...
    "I just sit at home, looking at porn and eating wotsits" :smile:

    Some for this week:

    Rajah Jerk Seasoning is the best Jerk marinade I have ever tried and VERY cheap. £1.40 for a large pack. It is a dry seasoning. I normally buy the tried and tested Dunn's River wet Jerk seasoning marinade but the local corner shop had run out. So bought the Rajah brand instead and it is spicy, hot and slightly "bittery" as all good Jerk Season should be.

    Crispy Bacon Frazzels maybe a novelty snack for children but are certainly too bland and "not tasting of bacon" for red-blooded adults. Though they are crunchy. Far better, I suggest, to buy bacon and grill it to a hard crispiness. Serve with the sauce of your choice.

    Quavers are nice as they burst tangy-like on your toungue but starngely unfulfilling as you you need to eat ten packs to banish late night hunger pangs. Skips taste of sickly cardboard. As do Weetos. Except that the cardboard is smeared in weak brown gravy.

    Plonk of the week: Youngs Champion Ale. Fizzy, yet an ale. Best served cold. Excellent "musty" aftertaste that reminds one satisfingly of the muddy Thames. And it gets you nicely merry.

    I enjoy these posts of yours CoG, mainly because they allow me to convince myself that I'm eating a healthy balanced diet:smile:
     
  8. And I'm assuming you put some toilet paper in the fridge?

    As daft as it sounds, I still can't bring myself to eat Bacon Frazzles or smokey bacon flavour crisps, even though it's all flavouring with no pig in it.

    Huh....I knew an Orthodox Jew at university who ate pork spare ribs after being assured by a fellow student that they were kosher lamb. He had asked for this assurance after sniffing them and being told they were delicious. He explained to his fellow student that if he had been misled, then he had not broken his religious observance.

    That's interesting. The same rule applies to me.

    Don't try and pull the lambswool over my eyes.
     
  14. Was it the stout 'pig hair' poking out of it that gave it away as a porky? ;);)
