These cooking instructions for Sainsbury’s Deli made sure I got my dinner this evening. After a couple of hours trying to get back home with the new (to us) car I realised that the chap in Sainsbury’s had forgotten to add the cooking instructions to the takeaway curry I’d bought. A minute or so with google turned up trumps!

I’ve cut and pasted them here just in case the original goes off-line for any reason [which it has].
