Do you love Indian food? Think you need to go out to a restaurant to get some? Not anymore! We’re lucky to have authentic Southern Indian cuisine prepared just down the road in Pittsboro. Under the brand name Kerala Curry, Ann Varkey makes pre-packed dinners and do-it-yourself sauces with her personal recipes.
Kerala is located on the west coast at the tip of India. Since ancient times, the region had legendary spices, which eventually attracted traders from Europe and resulted in wars to control the spices. But throughout the tumultuous times, the matriarchs of a few Keralite families guarded their secret recipes, handing them down through the generations. Ann, the founder and CEO of Kerala Curry, comes from one such family. Her curries retain the long culinary tradition of her family.
Kerala Curry is a Goodness Grows in North Carolina company. They produce curry sauces, chutneys, masalas, frozen meals, fresh meals, and pappadam, all of which are 100 percent natural, gluten-free, and free of MSG, artificial colors and preservatives, corn syrup, and modified food starches. Products are made in a federally-inspected plant, slow cooked in gas-fired kettles in small batches.
Frozen entrees like Vegetable Biryani or Chicken Tikki Masala are “heat and serve.” Try chutneys ranging from tomato to mango to coriander... but pay attention to the “heat” rating, because these are spicy. Try a Kerala Curry’s curry or masala sauce, then add your own meat or vegetables. It’s like healthy, delicious Hamburger Helper, only a thousand times better!
