A powerful blend !
Vadouvan spice blend which is originally from Pondicherry, is the product of a long-lasting relationship between France and India.
The story dates back to 1664 when Colbert created the French East India Company to compete with the British and the Dutch whose monopoly had caused the price of pepper to triple. So began the saga of the five French trading posts (Pondicherry, Chandernagore, Mahé, Karikal and Yanaon) which lasted until 1954, when they were handed back to India. But the departure of the French did not put an end to its friendship with Pondicherry which still maintains ties with France even today.
Like a curry in the rain, vadouvan is a Franco-Indian mix which is made up of spices and aromatic plants, but also oils.
This mix is an explosion of flavours, with around 10 ingredients; onion, garlic, mustard seeds, black urad lentils, fenugreek, cumin, fennel, turmeric, curry leaves, castor oil, sesame oil, coconut oil. Fly off to the land of highly coloured spices with the humid hot, full bodied, smooth and surprisingly well-balanced flavours of this spice blend. Perfect with fish, seafood but also with lamb and white meat.
