The Currysource philosophy, says the tiny shop’s owner Gary Dovey, "is to provide simplicity, quality and care" to the Boerum Hill neighborhood it serves. To that end, Dovey and partner Jilly Stephens’ 200-square-foot store offers four standard curries - one vegetarian, two chicken and a shrimp, all made with freshly ground spices, hard-to-find fenugreek leaves and free-range chicken.

"We’d feed our dishes to our kid, happily," says Dovey, adding, "There are no additives and only minimal amounts of raw sugar." Sides (.75 to $4) include basmati rice, samosas (fried, triangular pastries that may be filled with vegetables or meat or both), and fragrant mango, lime or coriander Geeta’s Chutneys imported from England, which are "just two times as good as anyone else’s," he adds.

Now there’s more of Currysource to love than ever before, as the store increased the size of their portions by 25 percent last week, Dovey told GO Brooklyn.

Since October 2002, Currysource has been supplying Spotted Dick (a suet-and-raisin steamed pudding), a variety of tea, candies with cute names like Jelly Tots, Smarties and Malteasers, and even treacle (which sounds like something dribbled into Oliver’s tin cup, but is a harmless, albeit intensely sweet) molasses syrup, to homesick British ex-pats in Brooklyn and beyond.

Currysource (88 Bergen St. between Smith and Hoyt streets) accepts Visa and MasterCard. Curries: $6-$9. The store is open Monday-Friday, 5 pm-10 pm, and Saturday-Sunday, 1 pm-8 pm. Delivery available to nearby neighborhoods. For information, call (718) 797-9719 or visit
