Vadouvan Curry Blend
Our Vadouvan Curry Blend is a French twist on traditional Indian curries. It combines familiar curry flavors of mustard seed, fenugreek, cumin, coriander, cardamom and chiles with distinctly French influences like garlic, onion and shallots. Vadouvan curry originated in the 17th century in the Puducherry region in southern India, which was governed as a French colony into the 1950s.
Vadouvan curry is delicately flavored and will feel more familiar to American palates than some traditional curries. It packs a delicate, savory yet sweet flavor with a kick of heat, perfect for chicken and vegetables, yet bold enough to stand up to the richer flavors of lamb, goat, and dairy.
Use our Vadouvan Curry Blend in any recipe which calls for curry powder. Use with chicken, winter vegetables, and a bit of yogurt to create a rich curry dish to serve with rice. Feeling bold? Replace the chicken with lamb and enjoy. Tweak a plain sauce, vinaigrette, or chicken salad recipe by adding a dash of the spice blend. Give it a try it as an interesting popcorn topper!
