Anyone know a good recipe for chip-shop type curry?  I've tried the Japanese curry paste and curry Bisto before, but I'm short on cash/well-stocked on spices and *very* hungry for curry and chips.

My MIL uses the regular beef bisto and store bought curry powder for her curry and chips. I don't know if it is authentic or not, actually until your thread she was the only person I ever knew that made these together.
She just cooks and drains stir-fry beef adds the bisto(that has already been added to water) and adds curry and flour, it's wonderful but may be different than what you are looking for

I'm guessing you're Brittish right?  And what you call chips, we call french fries and what we call chips, you call crisps...So I'm picturing a creamy yellow curry sauce on the chips?  We moslt do tomato ketchup which I don't love.   Maybe it's PMS but curry chips sound very appealing, or curry fries.  I make curry sauce with curry powder and coconut milk (I guess thats thai style?)  I bet fry/chips would be good with curry flavored vegenaise! I don't know if you get that but it is yummy vegan mayonaise.  I've gotta try that sometime!

You're probably better off getting Indian curry sauces... if all else fails, go to your local Asian supermarket and pick some curries up there.

Actually, it's more Chinese-style curry - the curry roux that comes in blocks is pretty close, but it's still not quite right, and I haven't figured out how to doctor it properly.  The way it usually comes  is the chips are separate and the curry is separate for dipping, with lovely bits of chicken in it.  I know the stuff doesn't have coconut milk in it, because I'm allergic to coconut.

I wish I were in the UK at the moment, I could probably find decent pre-made stuff at the market. Until a decent pub opened near me, I had to wait to fulfill my chip cravings between visits to the grandparents. Oooh...there's a thought - maybe I just need to go join one of the international swaps Grin

China Chinese don't actually make curry, it's an Overseas Chinese thing, I think. You can see if you can find Nonya or Peranakan curry at the Asian supermarket (or look up a recipe) - I think it's the best curry in the world!

My MIL makes her curry with a can of Campbells cream of mushroom soup -it's actually quite good and cheap!!

I have had curry and chips in a pub -it is usually curry mixed with brown gravy -also very good.

My ex-roommate (Irish) said that pre-soaked raisins were at the base of his dad's curry sauce recipe.  Unfortunately, I never drug the entire thing out of him.  I keep meaning to experiment, though.

Where do you live?  In NY and NJ, the "international" aisles in the supermarket have chip shop curry. I'm assuming that's what your'e looking for.  Plus if you can wait,  there are a lot of websites that sells British goods.
