Stocking up with store cupboard essentials from the Anila’s curry sauce and accompaniments range will take the heat out of Christmas culinary stress.

The versatile jars of Anila’s curry sauce will not only provide a delicious way of using up Christmas meat leftovers, they’re also perfect for livening up party dips.

And Anila’s chutneys, pickles and dips are a top addition to a Christmas or New Year buffet, and will brighten up any cold meat or cheese selections.

“Christmas and New Year catering can be hard work, but there are lots of ways to make it easier, and being prepared with a range of tasty store cupboard essentials is one way,” explains Anila Vaghela, who founded the family-run business of Anila’s Authentic Sauces in 1997.

“Anila’s curry sauces and accompaniments are terrifically versatile, and can play a great starring role in a wide range of different meals and snacks during the festive period when food and drink tend to be the focus of many families’ celebrations.”

Anila’s curry sauces are the ideal store cupboard essential to stock up on before the festive season, as they’re suitable for vegetarians and vegans, as well as being sugar-free, gluten-free and dairy-free. They also don’t contain onions or garlic.

Perfect for anyone with specific allergies or intolerances, they’re just the product for hosts who could find themselves catering for unexpected, or expected, guests with differing dietary needs!

Anila’s has a range of eight curry sauces, based on traditional Indian recipes. They have won ten Great Taste Awards, and earlier this year Anila’s Spicy Korma Curry Sauce scooped a Free From Food Award.

Anila suggests using one of her sauces not just as the base of a tasty Boxing Day curry, but as a quick and easy party dip by adding a dollop of curry sauce to crème fraiche, yoghurt or mayonnaise.

Anila’s distinctive and delicious range of 16 different mouth-watering ‘handmade’ chutneys, pickles and dips are made with single fruits and vegetables, and team up perfectly with a variety of dishes, snacks, meats and cheeses. They’re a great addition to light buffets and salads during the festive season.

Based in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, Anila’s also has a unit in West London.

Anila’s products are available from or at the 28 farmers’ markets across the south listed on the website, as well as in John Lewis Oxford Street and John Lewis Bluewater. They are also sold in top quality gourmet stores, such as Harrods and Selfridges, plus hundreds of other outlets, including Wholefoods, Planet Organic, delis, health food stores, garden centres and gift shops.
