I love chillies and I love spices, and I am therefore always happy to try a new sauce or condiment, especially if it has the flavours I love in it.
Mr Singh’s is a family run business based in East London and they make 3 delicious sauces: Mr Singh’s Punjabi Pesto, Mr Singh’s Bbq Chilli Sauce and Mr Singh’s Hot Punjabi Chilli Sauce. I was lucky enough to be sent samples of all three of the sauces.
My favourite was definitely the Hot Punjabi Sauce. There can be two possible problems with chilli sauces. Some sauces are too sweet and don’t have enough of a chilli kick. Other sauces are all chilli heat with no other flavours. This sauce manages to get the balance just right. It’s very hot but it’s also really tasty too. It’s a sauce you can enjoy for the flavour as well as the chilli. I loved it on fried halloumi and with grilled chicken. A little goes a long way.
The bbq sauce was also delicious. Sometimes bbq sauces can be too sweet and sticky but this one is really hot instead, even hotter than the Hot Punjabi Sauce. It went down well as a marinade for chicken, to flavour couscous, inside a cheese and onion quesadilla and to flavour homemade burgers.
The other sauce was the Punjabi pesto. I used it as a curry paste to make a lamb curry/stew. It’s nowhere near as spicy as the other sauces but is very tasty. I added a few more spices for a bit more depth of flavour but you could just use the pesto. I haven’t tried it on pasta yet to make a fusion Indian Italian meal but it’s something I plan to do for a quick and easy dinner soon.
Overall I was really pleased with the sauces and would be happy to recommend them.
Disclosure: I received the sauces for free but I was under no obligation to provide a positive review and the opinions are my own.
