Holy Cow - Himalayan Hot Garlic

Holy Cow - Himalayan Hot Garlic

Indian food has become very popular and readily available. I love Indian food and this Indian influenced hot sauce is no exception. This is the perfect sauce for and fans of Indian and Garlic!

When opening this sauce, be careful, you will be hit by a strong garlic smell. You can get a hint of a slight lemon scent and a fair amount of chilli. It has the thin consistency that you would expect from a sauce, dip or dressing the ingredients are well mixed and the sauce does not seperate.

The sauce is a dark Orange colour with small flecks of white – small pieces of garlic – and red flecks of chilli suspended within it. When tasting the sauce the first thing you taste is the lemon, which is not too strong but is defiantly there. Following the lemon, there is a very powerful garlic punch which then leaves with a slight heat at the top and back of the mouth and in the throat.

The sauce isn’t hot; just has a very pleasantly warming. The main flavour is garlic rather than chilli; the chilli is used as a complementing flavour rather than the main attraction. This sauce would be great with prawns or chicken. It could also be used in stir-fry or for dipping or spreading. Alternatively, mix it with some salad cream or a different but tasty thousand island dressing!

Ingredients: Water, Garlic (19%), Red Chilli Puree (10%), Sugar, Lemon juice concentrate (5%), Habanero Chilli Puree (peppers, salt, acetic acid), Salt, Cornflour, Garlic Granules, Colour (paprika extract), stabiliser (xanthan gum), Crushed chilli.

Seeing this it is obvious where the flavours you can smell and taste are coming from! Great mixed into all kinds of food! I’m off camping tomorrow for a week and this is accompanying me to brighten up my baked beans!

The sauce contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. It is suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans and coeliacs and is Gluten free. It comes in a 290g bottle and is available at ASDA for £1.00.
