    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.

          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.

        Bulldog Sauce?

        Edit: Just googled it. Looks yum. Will have to look out for it

    This in a slow cooker makes an amazing japanese curry.

  •  

    Is it short-dated stock?

  •  

    I'm right here and can't see this deal, or even the pictured shelf, op please clarify.

  •  

    I take this, 1x onion, cubed potato and a large tin of tuna, server on rice. So good.

    1. Make Rice
    2. Air fry some Southern coated chicken nuggets/pieces.
    3. Whilst they are cooking, saute some onions in butter/oil and pinch salt. When onions are clear add water and Curry pieces. Cook til well dissolved
    4. To a bowl add sufficient Rice/Chicken/Curry

    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.

    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

    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:

    http://www.tangfoodemporium.com.au/

    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.
