taxy, Sheng Tai also has a store on the South Shore, never thought to look for them here. There is a huge Asian community in downtown Hamilton - I just haven't been yet.
Let me know when you come to town and we'll go exploring! LOL

He's absolutely right Kgirl. Great minds think alike!

I needed a quick lunch for myself before taking DH to yet ANOTHER Doctor's appointment...

I've never had Butter Chicken before and thought that I could dip my toe into that dish without a big commitment of buying an entire jar of the simmer sauce and find that I/we don't care for it.
Not bad, but a touch too spicy for my palette, DH refused to try it... "EEEWWWW! What's THAT?!" (please insert a whiny 10 little brat boy's voice hear for the full effect 😆)
I've been trying to put my finger on that predominant flavor ...

@Kaneohegirlinaz Two spices (one actually an herb) that are almost always in butter chicken (besides the garam masala mix) are cardamom and methi leaves. Would either of those be the predominant flavor you are trying to pinpoint?

I went to Trader Joe's today and picked up a few things that caught my eye. I haven't tried any but the vanilla bean paste, which is wonderful. I found the vanilla last year, and it makes a big difference in my cheesecake.

I’m curious about how you like the hot smoky chili paprika.

I know there is another TJ thread but I can't find it. :wacko:

My daughter loves the health and beauty products also. I love the cheese and crackers.

Here are 3 more FOOD products I have tried and LOVE!!

The 24 oz. honey for $5.99 is a good price and taste wonderful.
