Re: Chinese curry powder

I'm afraid there isn't such a thing a "Chinese Curry Powder" - unless you mean the sort of stuff used in chip shops.

Wing Yip do a variety of Curry Sauce Concentrates, and these are what is very often used in Chinese takeaways:-

Also often used by chip shops smile

Chinese curries are generally milder and sweeter than Indian curries.

If you have a particular Chinese Curry in mind (most real chinese curries come from the Muslim tradition), then I can probably find something for you.

Re: Chinese curry powder

I also love the store too, i was just saying to Stefanie the other day, so much to look at, im also confused, as you get a few funny looks in there, but she said ask away and read away...    Chicken feet WTF do you do with them question

Re: Chinese curry powder

Hi young mum, I use chicken feet in my stock; they add great body to it.

Some people eat them; I think at El Bulli in Spain Adria has chicken feet on his tasting menu--not sure how he prepares them.
