get the curry dish ready in 30 mins. Some Woolworths has this curry block but priced at $4.50
Decent price, but never compare asian import products to Coles/Woolies, just look at the Indomie Mi Goreng prices. $0.25 v $0.55 per pack
I've found Coles/Woollies imported foods cheaper than the Asian supermarket for staples like Kewpie mayo and sesame dressing, and bulldog sauce.
Don't think so, maybe if on decent special but if comparing on "normal" price my experience is the Asian stores always have the upper hand.
Not the case in Brisbane. Most of the time Woolies are cheaper than Asian grocery stores by a lot. Just one example Lee Kum Kee traditional oyster sauce - Woolies selling at $6.30 and cheapest Asia Store I can find ask for $7.49 per bottle.
@sistermay: For the same size? I find out local big supers only have smaller bottles, the Asian grocery has large bottle for same or cheaper
The Yuen's Market in the same shopping block as my Woolies sell's Ayam's noodle cakes for half the price as the Woolies.
For what I buy, I've found my local Wollies consistently cheaper. Even drinks like 100 Plus and Yeo's are undercut by chains. The selection isn't as broad, which is why I still pop into the Asian supermarket for things like pre-cooked yakisoba.
Edit: Just googled it. Looks yum. Will have to look out for it
It's tonkatsu sauce, but doubles for okonomiyaki. It's quite sweet. I've found you can mix it with commercial BBQ and some honey for a wonderful sauce on pulled pork.
This is the best sauce I've found for katsu chicken.
S&B. Spice & herB.
Didn't know I had that question until I read this comment
Shaft and B… herB
This in a slow cooker makes an amazing japanese curry.
Also works in a rice cooker. I even have two so I could make rice in one and these Japanese curry pots in the other!
could i get a simplified method of making that?
I never really measured but basically just put boiling water in the rice cooker/slow cooker, cook your ingredients/meat/etc, and then drop the curry block in. Close and it'll turn out great.
(but that could just be the lazy uni-student mentality here)
cook it in an electric bento lunchbox
Is it short-dated stock?
I wasn’t aware compressed MSG, salt and palm oil could go off…
Just like the mummies. They live on forever.
Does it really contain msg?
I bought 3 packs, expiry Nov 2019
I've got one in the cupboard at least a year old, expires Oct 2019, so I don't think those are hard dates. After 18 months, suddenly goes bad
This will outlast cockroaches and a nuclear winter. Preppers paradise…
But not a good choice for a confined nuclear bunker.
I'm right here and can't see this deal, or even the pictured shelf, op please clarify.
Are you still there waiting?
Nah just took a look. Saw some in the shop but it wasn't on sale and appeared to be a different shelf to the one in the picture.
I take this, 1x onion, cubed potato and a large tin of tuna, server on rice. So good.
Freakin awesome meal. Never a drop left in my family. House stinks of curry for 72 hours but soooo worth it.
I find you have to cook the Onion for a long time or the final will just taste like… onion. If you cook it longer, you get a much sweeter flavor. I seem to recall directions call for a lot more than one onion though.
I'm thinking to go get a 24 pack of McDonald's nuggets for $10 after your comment though….
Yep I used to add chicken nuggets into mine too. Also good is the sliced meat (beef usually) usually used for steamboat/hotpot from Asian grocery stores.
Karaage/katsu works too!
These are great. Sadly my local woolworths and coles only stock the mild version.
In all honesty even the "Extra Hot" version is maybe a 3/10 in spiciness level
Coles & Woolies sell the item for about $4.50 for a 92gm pack.
We buy ours, and other Japanese foodstuffs, from http://ichibajunction.com.au whee the same item costs $4.85 for a 240gm pack
How do you store the leftovers or do you use it all at once?
240gm block is two blocks in one packet
Isn't this at Daiso too? They have Kewpie mayo these days too.
The S&B curry blocks are legit really good imo. I haven't made it in a while but a good combo I used to use was some coles sausages for the meat and then I would cook it with some carrot and potato. You could add onion if you like but I never did because I cant eat it. Just follow the recipe on the back on how to cook it and you should be set. I did sometimes find that it was a bit to runny when I was cooking it so I would add some extra curry blocks to thicken it.
i would never add sausage to a curry esp if slow cooked as sausages fat content is high and pools on top. just cube some cheap chuck/brisket/rump if cooking in a slow cooker. Carrots, potato and/or sweet potato and onions… if you have any leftover peas or corn add in final hour. Going 3/4 rice and 1/4 glass noodles with tonkatsu sauce elevates the dish
Agreed on adding potato and carrots. Helped add some nutrition to my curry block meals.
Is it at Doncaster colonial as well?
S&B is ok but I personally prefer House Java curry which has more robust flavours. Never seems to be on sale though :(
Chocolate block - curry flavour?
I have found the S&B is just so so, I prefer the vermont curry sauce with a touch of apple and honey.\
I am planning to make my own roux sometime when we've finished our boxes. Anyone done the same? What recipes did you use?
I buy the 1kg block from Tangs in Russell St in the city:
Can't remember how much it is exactly, but perhaps $12-$14 for 1kg?
The block lasts for quite a while. The instructions on the back suggest you use a cauldron.
I cook a very large pot of the stuff each time, so portion the curry sauce, potato and carrot into decor containers and freeze. Defrosts really well, but I don't cook with meat so there's no degradation in texture.
