Does anyone know a good recipe for Chinese-style curry sauce?

I love Chinese curry sauce and I’d like to try to make it myself, rather than buy it from the supermarket or get it from my local takeaway.

Could anyone recommend a good recipe for it?

    Curry is Indian no matter how you look at it 🙂

    Even the curry Chinese restaurants serve is Indian by origin..

    A curry that’s only curry by name , and has a different origin are the yellow, red and green Thai curry’s .
    Those are very nice but taste quite different to the curry most people are used to..

    Recipes below.

    For pete’s sake ! look at shortie’s answer , he’s chinese and works in a chinese restaurant , and uses “curry power” which is indian ! now stop giving me thumbsdown , lol !

    I’m not sure what store-bought tastes like because I haven’t seen it in Michigan. However, a very tasty sauce we like is made with equal parts brown sugar (not demerara), tamari (dark soy) and a sprinkle of Chinese 5-spice powder. It needs to be simmered for a minute or two to get the sugar to melt. It also makes a very good glaze for sticky pork ribs or chicken wings.

    Try or, both have great recipes. I’ve never made curry sauce from scratch, but I’ve used these sites to get recipes for other dishes and have been pleased with them. Good luck.

    Chinese-style Spicy Tofu with pork:) YUMM!!

    6 green onions
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced

    2 teaspoons chili bean paste
    1/2 cup reduced fat, low-sodium canned chicken broth
    1 teaspoon oyster sauce
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sake
    1 teaspoon sugar
    2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 2 teaspoons water
    About 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    2 tablespoons canola or other neutral oil
    1/2 pound ground pork
    2 packages (14 ounces each) soft tofu, drained
    3 cups hot cooked rice

    Cooking directions:
    Ready the sauce ingredients. Measure the chili bean paste into a small bowl. In another small bowl, stir together the chicken broth, oyster sauce, soy sauce, sake, and sugar. Set the bowls near the stove. Have the cornstarch-water mixture and the bottle of sesame oil near the stove as well.

    Place a wok or large frying pan over high heat. When it is hot, add the canola oil and swirl the pan to coat the bottom and sides with the oil. When the oil is very hot, add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly with a spatula so it doesn’t burn, until fragrant. Then add the ginger and minced green onions, stir well, and reduce the heat to medium. Add the ground pork and continue to stir constantly, breaking up the pork and integrating it with the other ingredients. When the pork is just cooked, after about 2 minutes, add the chili bean paste and pour in the stock mixture. Using the spatula, combine all the ingredients well with the sauce.

    Place the tofu in the pan and, using the edge of a ladle or a spoon, cut it into large chunks. Cook over medium heat until the tofu is heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir the watercornstarch mixture to recombine, pour it slowly into the pan, and then stir gently until the liquid in the pan thickens and becomes glossy, about 1 minute. Drizzle in a little sesame oil and garnish with the reserved green onion tops.

    Spoon the tofu-and-pork mixture into a serving bowl or onto a platter, family style, and serve each diner a bowl of rice. Or, spoon the mixture over individual bowls of rice and serve.

    Look the picture here. DELICIOUS!

    Chinese Restaurant Curry


    450g Chicken, beef, lamb etc?cut into small pieces
    1 teaspoon soft brown sugar
    1 tablespoon light soy sauce
    1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine
    1 tablespoon cornflour
    3 tablespoons seasoned oil
    0.5 teaspoon chopped garlic
    1 medium onion finely chopped
    2 tablespoons mild curry powder
    Stock or water
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
    1-2 teaspoons chilli sauce


    Marinate the chicken/meat in the sugar, light soy sauce, wine and cornflour for 25-30 minutes.
    Heat the oil in a wok or pot, lightly brown the garlic and onion over a low heat, add the curry powder, mix and allow it to brown, then add a little stock or water to make a smooth paste by stirring constantly.
    Now add the chicken/meat pieces and cook on a high heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
    ?Add the salt, dark soy sauce and just enough stock or water to cover; reduce heat, cover and braise until chicken/meat is tender and cooked through. Chicken takes about 25-30 minutes; pork and lamb need 45-50 minutes whilst beef will take 60-65 minutes.
    ?Finally add the chilli sauce and blend well before serving.
