Holy Cow Madras Spicy Mint

Holy Cow Madras Spicy Mint

The weather is so unseasonally warm and sunny, it must be BBQ time, and looking through the review stock I found a bottle that had been passed by at then end of last year, Holy Cow’s Madras Spicy Mint. We don’t get many sauces submitted for review that are white?

The Holy Cow Food Company has been doing very well over the past few years, they started developing recipes in a home kitchen by Kiran Bhandari, they have now happy moved into a manufacturing facility in in Witney, Oxfordshire. All the sauces are free from artificial colours, preservatives and flavourings and are suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans and Ceoliacs.

The sauce is milky white with pieces of dried herbs floating evenly in the mix, it is nice and thick, very much like the yoghurt that makes up the main ingredient. it smells mildly of garlic and mint.

Ingredients: Yoghurt (55%), Water, Garlic Puree (Garlic, Acidity Regulator: Citric Acid), Habanero Chilli Puree (Habanero Peppers, Salt, Acidity Regulator: Acetic Acid), Sugar, Modified Maize Starch, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Dried Onion (1%), Mint (1%), Salt, Acidity Regulator (Lactic Acid), Stabiliser (Xanthan Gum).

It tastes very much at first like a Raita you would find as a condiment in the Indian restaurant with some bits of finely chopped onion and bits of mint and garlic, but then you get the warmth from the Habanero Chillies, it is not a monster in heat terms, the yoghurt makes sure of that, and it makes and excellent dip with crisps or on chips. For a bottled sauce this tastes very fresh, if you poured it in a bowl you could get away with letting people think you has just made it..

On the web site they have a recipe using the sauce for “Lamb Kathi Kebab…in mins!” which looks like a great use for the sauce, but it would also make a great salad dressing with added little oil and vinegar.

You can buy this sauces in ASDA, Sainsbury’s and Budgens, so you can undoubtedly pick up a bottle locally, and at the moment you can get a bottle of Holy Cow Sauces from Sainsburys for just 99p.
