Vadouvan Curry Mix




An Indian east coast curry inspired by French colonists.

Other Common Names

Pondicherry Curry Powder

Description & Use

Just as the English created a Madras Curry to their liking, the French who colonized the Pondicherry area of eastern India, took a liking to the local flavours and made this version their own.  A larger-than-usual leaning towards dried onion and garlic, and the freshness of curry leaves, makes this blend mild and a little sweet.

Blended and packed in Australia from imported and local ingredients.
