Patak's Madras Kebab Paste
« on: August 29, 2013, 05:49 PM »
Hi there, I wondered if anyone would be able to help me locate Patak's Madras Kebab Paste.  It seems to only come in 2.4 KG tubs i.e. catering size, and not at all in supermarket sizes.

I may have this wrong but one of the posts on the forum from about 4 months ago seemed to indicate that Patak's Madras Paste was the same thing but in the supermarket version.

I got in touch with Patak's customer services who seemed to be saying they were indeed different.  They even gave me a list of retailers.  None of which that I can find do actually stock it.

Do wiser minds here know different?  I'd be grateful for an opinion on its availability "in the wild"!.

Thanks

I believe them to be (very) different, and I believe that the kebab paste comes only in large catering size.

Yes, catering size only, you can get it at any asian store that supplies the trade.
or search Tesco online.

Check my Tikka recipe here, for more info.

Thanks, I looked on Tesco's online, no joy.  The only other online retailer was Amazon.co.uk, or Makro (collect only).

Not sure where to look, I'm in Wolverhampton.

thanks

Crikey, I'm amazed you don't fall over it when you go out of the door.  Wolverhampton has oodles of Asian shops; I wouldn't even think of Amazon (unless they are offering free delivery), just go out and explore.

kiems not far from me, if you can get to Dudley there is Sandhars

Also United foods

And there is a newish one opened right opposite "Rock Zombie" club on Kings Street Dudley.

Don't forget to try the little asian shops local to you as well, i did and found Mr. Naga chilli 2 GBP and Asian Bay Leaves 1 GBP absolute bargain in my eyes.

Where in Wolvo' are you?

Yeah I'm on the Penn Road on the way out of Wolverhampton.  I'm working my way down the shops on the Dudley Road. 

The main one I tried had just had in a Pataks Achari paste they reckoned was good, but had never heard of the Kebab paste.

I'll carry on looking though.

Thanks all!
