I only ever eat takeaway curry (so rarely have it) but I'm ill & hungry and have no money so need instant curry from a shop. Which supermarket has the best? And most veggie selection?

Waitrose thalis are lovely.
Failing that asda have a quite good selection, but poor for veggies, as they buy them from the Southhall curry ready meal manufacturer.

Thanks - DP suggested Asda but since he's never tried any from anywhere else, I ignored him. Will have a look in Waitrose/ M&S before heading to asda tomorrow smile

We love sainsburys curries, not sure about their veggie range though. Unfortunatley do not get them very often anymore and they reall are no good for dc. (and we make our own)

Waitrose are the next by a country mile. Have tried them all and researched. Ready for a PHd write up now. Poons make them and they are the best next to restaurant standard.

Next...meant best

Our favourite is Yeungs curry sauce. All you need is cooked chicken onions & peas really.

I do a roast chicken on Sun, This curry & rice on Mon, & Chicken soup with the carcass on Tues. Very economical, tasty as well, my Gran would be proud smile

Morrisons Korma is fantastic, mild enough for the kids too!

I never think the Asda ones have much meat in them (although as a veggie that's not what you're looking forgrin)

Tesco do a nice ones in boxes - meal for two, various types. Not sure if any specifically veggie ones, only because I haven't looked though. They probably do.

Bombay potato from waitrose is lovely.

M&S chicken tikka masala is tasteless gunk <vom>

Sainsburys isn't bad

Fadingfast Sun 09-Dec-12 21:22:03

Sainsburys much better than waitrose in my opinion, and usually a better selection for veggies ime.

missnevermind Sun 09-Dec-12 21:41:55

Sainsburys Thai ones are really nice.

PigletJohn Sun 09-Dec-12 22:17:41

I mostly have had Tesco ones, and am always disappointed because they are nothing like an Indian restaurant one.

same with Wetherspoons curries.

Do you have a sweet centre near by? The ones by me do curries and sundries to take home and heat up.

GreeenFingers Mon 10-Dec-12 21:57:14

Waitrose. 2x mains, two sides ( usually have naans and aloo gobi or dahl ,and rice . A tenner, cheaper than the sweet centre.Enough for a family.

GreeenFingers Mon 10-Dec-12 21:58:49

Just eaten paneer chilli, sweet centre, home made aloo gobi and cumin/pea rice, also home made.Yummy

DewDr0p Mon 10-Dec-12 22:00:55

Sainsburys curries really not bad imho.

Waitrose.
Really very good.

GreatGardenstuff Mon 10-Dec-12 22:08:41

I'd say Sainsbos just edge Waitrose. Ive only tried the veggie and prawn ones.

LynetteScavo Mon 10-Dec-12 22:10:17

Sainsbury's deli counter.

BertieBotts Mon 10-Dec-12 22:16:29

YY to sweet centre. Or our corner shop does an amazing microwave curry, bizarrely.

I like Co-op ones too. Not sure of veggie-ness of co-op or corner shop curries.

LightHousekeeping Mon 10-Dec-12 22:20:15

Waitrosse or Asda (my Indian friends buy theirs from Asda) M and S is dire for curry.

beeny Mon 10-Dec-12 22:23:24

Co-op do really nice mumtaz curries.

iamwhaticallpregnant Mon 10-Dec-12 22:24:20

Waitrose hands down. Amazing madras and Jalfrezi. Only one that wasnt too great was their Dansak. But 100% the best curry from a supermarket. I am pregnant and sometimes eat 2!
