Burtons Lane Curry Paste
At Burtons Lane Curry Paste we love to bring families together around the dinner table. For time poor busy parent's like us, our Indian Style Curry Paste is versatile and can be used as a base in a wide variety of dishes the whole family can enjoy.
Every jar is handcrafted in Millthorpe NSW (using local produce where available) from our secret family recipe handed down from my great grandparents. Life was prosperous for them in India until the great depression hit and they were forced to walk away from their coffee plantation. No longer able to afford to feed and educate their five children, four of whom were sent to an orphanage, they made an income delivering home cooked meals by bicycle. They were soon being asked to make curry paste and other condiments.
The end result was a large pickle factory in Bangalore which bears their name and is still in operation today (no longer owned by the family). Their success enabled them to bring their children home. In addition to the gift of settling in Australia are these recipes they have preserved to hand on to future generations of their family.
These heirloom recipes have stood the test of time and will quickly become pantry staples.
