What is a good quality brand of curry powder or paste?

    I like the Suraj brand Madras Curry powder from Loblaws.

      Rexdale Grocers, a little Indian shop on Rexdale Blvd just west of Islington has a house blend Garam Masala that is out of this world. The old lady who formulated this magic powder has retired, but her secret blend is still available here. Outstanding stuff. Makes a Garam Masala Moong Dal (lentil) dish that is transcendent.

      They also carry Bolst's Curry Powders which are also excellent. Bolst's may be available other places, but that Garam Masala is only available there.

            I usually grind my own blends for east indian dishes, but Ship Madras curry powder (green tin) is good for dishes like Chinese Curried Beef and Tendons.
