Butternut korma and rice

Hi guys!

Sorry it’s the first time that I’ve posted this week, I started my job this week and it’s taking time for me to adjust to a new schedule. It’s annoying because I only have four hours at home in which to do everything that I need to do. The job is okay, I’m clearly not meant to be there, everyone has pure science degrees and they think that I’m analysing them using my ‘psychology skills’. The people are nice and the day is fairly easy but I’m still quite anxious and feel out of place. Maybe I will settle down in a few weeks, we’ll see.

Anyway, today’s review is Sainsbury’s Korma paste, the jar is labelled clearly for vegans which is great. I don’t eat curry very often and I’ve never used korma paste before so this was a new experience for me. I softened the veg a bit and then added the paste and cooked for a few minutes, after that I added a whole can of coconut milk and cooked it down. I think if I was going to make this again I would need to buy a sieve for the rice, but this review is about the korma paste. It was okay, there was a deep spice flavour to it and I thought the colour was great. If I was a big curry fan I imagine I would have liked it more. I paid Β£1.50 for the 290g jar which I thought was okay, value wise. I’m not sure if I’d buy it again because as I said I’m not big on curries.
