Take Out Curry

I seem to remember back in the day, that my parents would buy frozen 1 liter containers of curry beef brisket from Pine House.

I was just at their Crystal Mall location, didn't see any for sale.

Anybody have any thoughts of where else I can find curry for takeout?
Preferably cheaper option.

I assume Chinese curry? If so, I want to mention Mui Garden but I dont think they have pure curry, they serve it with rice on the side

You can definitely order curry beef brisket from Mui Garden sans rice.

I started a thread a while back for curry beef brisket. MG was pretty much the unanimous choice, with "a place in Yaohan's food court" a close second.

That place is called Curry House I believe. It's been there for decades I'm sure so chances are they know what's up.

Mui garden is good, but pretty expensive.

Prata Man in Richmond has good curry for nearly half the price.

For indian curry, Tandoori Kona is solid.

Maybe it's changed since 6 years ago. The curry itself has less cream/milk than Mui Garden but it's close. But for the value and the amount of meat you get, it's worth it.

I don't know about the Main and Victoria Drive MG but you guys be trippin hard if you think the Richmond place is any good. I knew dinner was going to be bad when I sat down and saw a bunch of awards on the wall but from the 90's. The curry and other food were not good. Then again even in MG's more popular days, the Richmond one was never that great imo.

Tried the James on Hastings curry not too long ago.

The serving is huge compared to MG. The meat isn't cooked as long so the connective tissue still sticks/strings (as opposed to "melts"), and of course the meat wasn't as soft.

While a good curry, it seemed to be missing something- a sort of "depth" if that makes sense. It was like they didn't use any cream/milk/coconut milk or whatever other places use to make their curries rich, so I thought James was lacking in that department.

Otherwise, it was very good in terms of taste and value (serving size).

Curry is very easy to make. Its only like 5 ingredients and that's all.

Onions
Garlic
Ginger
Haldi (any indian store would have this)
Masala (any indian store would have this)
Chicken/Beef

1. Put oil in pan with chopped onions, garlic and ginger (brown the ingredients)
2. Mix in Haldi and Masala (Half a teaspoon of Haldi) (Masala amount depends on the weight of the meat. For 3lbs I would say 1.5 teaspoons)
3. Mix it well so it becomes like a paste than put the chicken/meat in and let the water from the meat evaporate.
4. After the water has evaporated put in a glass of tap water and let it boil. Once it starts boiling it should be done. Should not take more than 45 mins to make from start.

I usually eat it with rice. I also put in sliced potatoes as well.
