MY LOW CARB CURRIED EGG SALAD RECIPE IS THE JAM!
While we were living in France, I had a really nice opportunity to play around with curry. Why? Well, I kinda fell in love with it while I was living there. Every once and a while I'd find something on the menu which was accented with curry (or had curry as the main ingredient) and absolutely loved it.
All that being said, it was hard for me to find red or green curry, so I stuck with yellow... which is what we are going to use in this recipe. Now keep in mind that one yellow curry powder can very WILDLY from another. They all have different spices (and different ratios of spices!) within the curry powder.
Common spices found in yellow curry are: turmeric (to give the really yellow color), mustard seed, cinnamon, cumin, anise, ginger, fenugreek, pepper corns, mace and cardamom. There could easily be others included or some of these excluded from your prefab yellow curry powder. To make things easy, I used the Spice Islands Curry Powder which is readily available at most grocery stores.
