Best Chicken Coconut Curry everrr

I have a go to chicken coconut curry recipe and l periodically tweak the spice mixture. I used the Vadouvan curry mix in it last night and my oh my was it good. I’m still thinking about how good it was and thankful that l made a double batch - leftovers yeah.

Saw it used in a NY Times recipe

Delicious and aromatic

Great salt-free spice mix

It's hard to find salt-free spice mixes, so I was thrilled to find this salt-free Vadouvan Curry. It's delicious and works well in all the dishes I use it in,
