Chip Shop Curry Sauce is a very British affair, in fact it is mostly found in the north of England.  For some reason it works really well with fish and chips, can be made in advance and also freezes really well. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. But where did it come from and why the North of England?  After some research we found out that it likely originated in Hong Kong. During the 60’s and 70’s thousands of migrant Cantonese moved to the UK and bought fish and chip shops (mostly in the north of England) they extended the menus to include Chinese food to the fish and chip menu and very likely a Curry Sauce ‘gah-lay’ to accompany the fish and chips. 60 years later we give it back to Hong Kong!
