A new curry powder* inspired by the ingredients of Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia.

Fruit on the nose, this blend packs a nice amount of heat and balances well with the fattiness of coconut milk and the acidity of lime juice. 

*Curry powders are not found in Indian cuisines. The British came up with the idea of curry powder to mass produce a short cut to flavors they experience in India. The idea traveled as the British did, and now you often see curry referenced as a spice blend in other Asian cuisines. Indian cuisines have taken up the name of curry to simply describe dishes with a thick gravy. In India, spice blends are often called Masalas. 

You could say that I called this a masala as a way to teach the difference in terms, to showcase the movement of spices and flavors across Asia, or to stay true to my Indian heritage. But really, it's because it rhymes.
