The Gluten Free Curry Sauce which is Second to Naan

Nowt Poncy Curry Sauce

Vegan and Gluten Free Curry Sauce by Nowt Poncy

What’s the secret to an authentic, good quality curry sauce? There’s a lot to be said for “going back to basics”, and nothing can beat a no nonsense, classic recipe which happens to be gluten free AND vegan. Take some healthy, honest ingredients, mix in some right good northern love, and what do you get? A top notch gluten free curry sauce which is incredibly quick, simple, and bursting with taste. And  a vegan curry sauce too! Here are just some of the reasons that the Nowt Poncy® Curry Sauce has been cooking up a storm all over the UK…

1. It’s made by passionate northern cooks

There’s a very serious “no-nonsense” approach in the Nowt Poncy® kitchen, and the people responsible for making the sauces have their hearts in the job. The curry sauce is made with love, with the intention of making absolutely sure that it stands above the rest when it comes to sauce in a jar. Being able to rustle up a curry in a hurry which also has the flavours, nutrients and goodness of a proper curry? Nowt poncy about that. The traditional Indian recipe made in the heart of Rossendale, Lancashire, now that should get the juices flowing.

2. It’s a quality vegan curry sauce (or not)

Or not? Well, the beauty here is that it’s completely up to you.  It comes as a 100% vegan friendly recipe, but meat eaters tend to add chicken, lamb or prawns to it to make a quick and simple curry dish. It can just as easily serve as a base sauce for completely meat free dinner – just add veggies, chickpeas or anything you fancy. Do you have people coming round with different dietary requirements? Serve them all up the same curry, some with meat, some made with veggies. The freedom to choose is great, isn’t it?

3. It’s totally gluten free

Research shows that coeliac disease affects 1 in 100 people in the UK, making it much more common than in the past. If you’re one of those people who has to eat a gluten free diet, or you are cooking for someone who does, you are safe with this curry option. The nutritionals are actually quite impressive.

4. Quite possibly the simplest curry of all time

All Nowt Poncy® cooking sauces are brilliant in their simplicity and no fuss approach. If you’re looking to rustle up a curry in a hurry this won’t disappoint. It’s also an alternative to have in the cupboard when you’re tired after work and tempted to get a takeaway. A much healthier option which works out cheaper and it just as good? It can be done and on the table in minutes. Excellent!

5. It’s also a dipping sauce! 

This is understandably one of the favourite uses with the Nowt Poncy® curry sauce – it doubles up as a salsa for dipping! Fresh and ready to eat straight from the jar. The traditional Indian recipe using green chillies makes it a great warm curry meal which also works cold. Get out the tortillas or crisps, or even slices of pepper if you’re being super healthy, and get stuck in! The curry sauce is part of a “big 5” family too, if you’re feeling inspired, check out the other sauces here.
