|Ah, Pataks are rather good (I also like Sharwoods).|
I believe Phaal is about as Indian as Chicken Tikka Masala (invented in Glasgow no matter WHAT the people from Birmingham say), since I've seen a variety of things mentione as being "traditional" although the name might be real, the sheer pointlessness of the sauce is probably not.
I think it's pretty much indisputable that Tikka Masala is the Chop Suey of Indian food. Invented by Asians, yes, but far far away from Asia.
As for Patak's I quite like this one. I'd like to try their Jalfrezi paste, but I haven't been able to find it yet.
Larich makes some interestingly bizarre Sri Lankan pastes, tho they don't seem to have their own website.
