In keeping with the Curry theme from a couple of weeks ago after doing Coronation Chicken
This is a post about Chicken Curry, you know, that Scottish favourite from most Chinese takeaway Establishments

That yummy stuff that goes with chips (fries to my USA readers)
Oh Yeah, Chips and Curry sauce, mmmmmmm
Takeaway (take out) food is a big thing in Scotland. People generally go into various food places buy food and take it home and eat it. Its a very big part of life in the UK. Chinese food, Indian food, Pizza and the fabulous Fish & Chips are a few I can name. There is nothing better than taking home your little (or indeed big) parcel of food and enjoying it in the comfort of your own home with maybe a glass of wine, I miss that part of Scottish culture. We used to get 'Takeaway" at least twice a week when we lived in Scotland. Don't get me wrong we can get "take out" here in Texas, but the excitement isn't the same.
So this post is not really a recipe as such, but more of a packet mix
Its Young's or Yeung's Concentrated Chinese Curry Mix, this amazing packet is made in Scotland.

This is really for the ex-pat wanting that amazing Chicken Curry that they haven't had for a long, long time
What you need to do is, on your next visit home to Scotland, search the Country and all the Butchers and you will find this little packet of Curry heaven
Or if no travel plans to Bonny Scotland are imminent then get that lovely Scottish visitor to stash a packet or 5 away in their suitcase, my personal favourite option
So, as I said before this stuff is found in Butcher Shops, its incredible and just like the real thing, I feel like this is my duty to tell you of this amazing packet mix, it will change your life if you are missing that curry sauce
I first got introduced to this packet of curry sauce way back before living in the USA was even a flicker in our minds. It was around new year time and it was at my pals house in Arbroath, I was amazed at how good it tasted. I loved the stuff, yum.
So I know for sure that you get these packets in butchers in Fife, Angus, the Borders, Edinburgh and Glasgow, almost anywhere I'm sure. Also Tesco Supermarket are selling it now.
