Ma's Paretal Curry Pack

Serves: 4 – 6 Vegetarian Vegan

This is a Spicebox exclusive, based on a recipe from Rafi’s Mother-in-law. Rafi's in-laws were originally from Kerala, India, but they emigrated to Malaysia in the 1930s. Hence the invention of this dish!

A Malay and South Indian fusion, flavoured with coconut, curry leaves and fennel. A great celebration dish, cooked for Christmas day in the Fernandez family (with 20kg of mutton!).

Please note: Due to shortages of fresh ingredients some of our products may be made using dry ingredients (chilli powder & dry curry leaves) - this will not affect the flavour of your Curry Packs.

Try it with: Lamb, goat or earthy veg.

Shelf life & storage: The mix will last for up to 4 weeks in a fridge and for six months in a freezer. Once cooked the food will last for 2 days in a fridge and up to one month in a freezer.

  1. Empty the contents of the pack into a pan with 300ml water and 60g coconut cream, 400g tin of chopped tomatoes and 1 tsp sugar.
  2. Add 1kg of ingredients of your choice. Mix well, cover, and gently cook.
  3. Open and simmer for a further 10 minutes.

I love this coconut based curry- the recipe is very authentic and unique. I usually cook it for friends as it is a different take on the typical 'safe' curry and everyone seems to enjoy it! I love to cook it with chicken.
