One of the best blends to keep in your cupboard is a jar of good quality curry powder – one that looks fresh and has a rich, well balanced aroma and flavor. Choose a curry powder that when you smell it, the fragrance is enticing and at the same time doesn’t reveal its secrets. It’s not overwhelmed by cumin or fenugreek. It has you guessing about what wonderful spices make up the delectable blend. 

When you have that curry powder in your cupboard, you are ready to make so much more than a pot of curry. 

A versatile blend like our Sweet & Spicy Curry Powder can be used to make Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice, soups like Curried Coconut Carrot Soup, or salads like this Curried Chicken Salad with Mango.

Curry powder and chicken tenders make a wonderful pair. Coat the chicken well with the blend, add a little salt & sugar, and then pan fry or bake, or take it outside on the grill.
