Vietnamese Sweet Lemon Curry
The Vietnamese were introduced to curry by the people of India and the influence of traditional yellow curry is apparent in this blend. However, by adding sugar and lemongrass, we’ve made this curry light, refreshing and very Vietnamese.
Try using Vietnamese Sweet Lemon Curry to make sauces for meats, seafood, tofu and vegetables. Make a paste by mixing equal parts spice, water and olive oil.
