As we browsed through all the beautiful handcrafted items at the April Artisan Showcase at The Cloverdale Rodeo Grounds today, I was lured by the smell of aromatic spices, and to a man frying butter chicken sauce in a steamy pan, under the “Ace Curries To Go” sign.
“Vick” introduced himself and offered us samples of his butter chicken sauce, and after one bite, I knew what I was making for dinner tonight.
Having spent hours chopping and frying the ingredients for butter chicken in the past, I was thrilled to find a delicious, ready made sauce, made from fresh ingredients.
Vick and his wife Jas, are dedicated to making quality curry sauces. Their labor of love is also evident in the sample of delicious fruity mango curry sauce that I tried, made by simmering the fruit for seven hours.
The butter chicken sauce is good for everybody in my family, because it is gluten free, contains no msg or preservatives, and is non-dairy.
The price of the jar of sauce is reasonable at $6.
When I arrived home, it only took me 30 minutes to cook a delicious healthy dinner for 6 people using the following the recipe on the jar:
Stir fry four chicken breasts, add in one jar of sauce and simmer till chicken is cooked. Add in one can of coconut milk, and serve with rice.
My sons thought the butter chicken tasted YUMMY!!
The April Artisan Showcase continues tommorrow, Sunday April 13 from 10am to 5pm at The Cloverdale Rodeo Grounds, 17763 – 62nd Ave, Cloverdale, BC
