Just wanted to share this chip shop curry recipe, as a few people have requested it after I shared the photo earlier on Facebook.

Last night we were craving a chippy tea. Unfortunately, our local chip shop curry sauce isn’t vegan friendly or gluten free… so I agreed to make home made chip shop curry sauce if Paul made some ‘proper’ chips.

We don’t eat chips often, but when we do, they have to be fresh potatoes with the skin on deep fried with plenty of salt and cider vinegar for maximum satisfaction.

For the curry sauce, I looked at lots of recipes online and adapted them to create my own chippy-style curry sauce, through using vegan and gluten free alternatives and spices that I knew would work well.

The curry sauce went perfectly with the chips and we were all so full afterwards… it tasted even better than chip shop curry. I will be making it again later this week with mushy peas and vegan ‘fish’ which I will share. In the meantime here is the recipe for the curry sauce.

Hope you are all having a relaxing Sunday!
