Vadouvan Masala Curry Powder explores the distinctive French twist on Indian masala. Classic curry spices like mustard seeds, fenugreek, cumin, coriander, cardamom, and spicy chiles are combined with garlic, onion, and shallot to create a spicy and savory unique masala flavor.
The French interpretation of curry powder known as Vadouvan originated in the southern Indian region of Puducherry which was intermittently governed by the French from the late 17th century until gaining independence in 1954. Although it does contain a kick of heat, it’s one of the most delicately flavored curry blends and is more familiar to Western palates than many Indian spice mixtures.
The bold and elegant flavor of this ground fine powder can take on robust flavors like lamb, goat, or yogurt, but it’s also subtle enough to enhance chicken or delicate vegetables. It’s perfect as a uniquely tasty substitute for traditional curry powders. The longer Vadouvan Masala Curry Powder cooks, the more its richness and roasted qualities shine through in dishes.
