Recommend me a curry paste/sauce

I haven’t eaten curry in years. I had severe food poisoning from a takeaway and it put me off.
I do make Thai curries and thought I would make the effort and try again making something at home, esp with winter coming up.

Many years ago we used to get a great paste in a glass jar that you added tomatoes to and cooked to make the sauce. They stopped making it though. I do like tomato based curries and stuff that’s not too sweet.
I don’t fancy making the whole thing from scratch, esp if I don’t enjoy it in the end, just now.
Any reccs?

Homepride do one that you make in the slow cooker and add tinned tomatoes too and it's amazing! So good for quick dinners too as it's cooking during the day 😁

I use the Pataks pastes. I marinade chicken in the paste and yoghurt for a couple of hours, then add to veg and tinned toms.

No slow cooker. I think homepride stuff seems very sweet?

Pataks paste - just follow the recipe on the box. I would avoid jar sauces - like you say too much sugar.

Mince an onion/garlic and ginger to a paste. Add a table spoon of curry powder, turmeric. Fry for two mins. Add chicken/prawns/veg whatever you fancy +/- a tin of tomatoes. Add a tin of coconut milk and a stock cube. Cook till everything cooked through. I also add spinach. Done ✅

We use the paste pots, think they might be Pataks? I'll go and try and find a picture
