Patak's Relic from the past
« on: January 21, 2019, 02:58 AM »
I was going through my Curry Cupboard this morning to look for different pastes and I came across this.  I don't know how I've missed it so often and it has actually come with us on at least 1 house move (possibly 2).  The original Patak's tin cans have not been available for quite a while but I seem to recall that they did make a good dinner in the day.

Unfortunately it is past it's "best before" date but I only use them as a guide anyway and it's only 5 years.  ;)  It shows no sign of rust or deterioration other than on the label so I'm game.  I may purchase some breast fillet this arvo and use this to do a side by side with Latif's CTM tonight.   
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

No corrosive activity inside the tin and it made a pretty good curry. That is the end of that.

I should point out it was nothing like the CTM made from Latif's base and red sauce.

Those old enough to remember Vesta beef curry would probably leak water and Zimmer ...

Apparently still available.  What is chopped and shaped beef I wonder? I like this description.

It looked like a tray full of string and cardboard with some chopped up rubber, but tasted devine. I can still taste the monosodium glutomate to this day!

The same author wrote "(ooh I could jump off a grape!)", but I have absolutely no idea what he/she meant !
