Bollywood Coconut Curry Seasoning + Ways to Use it! (SRC)

November 22, 2015 at 10:00 pm 10 comments

Curry…I love ALL kinds – whether it’s a main dish, snack food or even added to peanut or almond butter for an exquisite savory flare. You might say I’m addicted to the Thai curry cashews I get in the bulk section of our natural food store too…so add that to the list of my curry “loves”.

bombar coconut curry spicesIt was such a treat to get acquainted with Amy and her blog The Fearless Homemaker for this month’s Secret Recipe Club assignment. She’s a “food lover, entertaining enthusiast + crafty DIYer”..and her recipes will make you want to eat your computer screen! To name just a few recipes on my list to try are her Sweet Tea Icebox Tart, Slow Cooker Coconut Chickpea Curry and Parsnip and Rosemary Risotto. Can you say yummmm!?

When I saw the recipe for Bollywood Coconut Curry Popcorn Seasoning, I was immediately intrigued…then I read the ingredient list and said “YESSSSSSSS!” (loudly in my head). I was all ready with ingredients on hand to make her chickpea curry until I spotted this seasoning recipe, and I am so glad I did. Wowza!

Not only does this coconut curry seasoning taste fantastic – it’s a rockin’ combination of sweet, spicy, nutty, texture, and savory…AND it’s versatile. I used unsweetened coconut instead of sweetened and added stevia powder and coconut sugar to the mix instead of table sugar but any granulated sweetener will do the trick.

Toss it with fresh popped popcorn (I made mine with coconut oil) for an exotic kettle corn. However, don’t stop there… this seasoning mix makes a great gift, and I’m always looking for homemade holiday goody ideas.

    Oh, I love that you chose this recipe! It’s one from way back when on my blog, but SO so so tasty. I love the different variations/uses you suggested for it — brilliant! And it *does* make a great little gift — I’ve put it in a nice mason jar and given it to friends in the past before, too, and it’s always been happily accepted. Awesome choice for the SRC, and I’m so glad you got my blog!

    Also, my 2-year-old loves curries, and she loves popcorn, but I’ve simply never thought to try this popcorn for her — will give it a try in the next couple weeks! She does LOVE that coconut chickpea curry you linked to (as do we) and that is often our Meatless Monday dinner. You’ll have to try that out!

    So many possibilities with this mixture. I bet it would be delicious roasted on nuts too.
