Patak sent me a box of goodies to get me ready for Britains National Curry Week and last night being a Monday, the toughest day of the week for me as I’m usually on a massive catch up after the weekend so I plumped for a ready made sauce, their Tikka Masala ready sauce for 2 to be precise and dinner was on the table in 20 minutes, just what I need on a Monday.

The sauce was hot! Hotter than the Tikka Masala our local take away drops off in a messy plastic bag which usually stains the kitchen surface for a couple of weeks too. Very easy to prepare and mopped up with Patak naan breads we really enjoyed our dinner.
