I had some pasta salad at a luncheon and it had a slight curry taste in it and it was so nice and asked around and no one can help me with a recipe.

  • This is my go to favourite Italian pasta salad recipe. There is a little prepping to do, but it’s worth it as it’s a winner in my family.

  • There are nice pasta salad recipes in Woolworths food msg this week,no curry though!

  • • 225g penne
    • 4 tbsp light mayonnaise
    • 4 tsp rogan josh curry paste
    • 150g pot natural yogurt
    • juice ½ lemon
    • 2 tbsp mango chutney
    • 50g sultana
    • 15g pack coriander , chopped
    • ½ cucumber , deseeded and diced
    • 2 celery sticks, diced
    Boil the pasta in salted water for 8 mins. Drain, then cool under the cold tap.

    Meanwhile, mix the mayo, curry paste, yogurt, lemon juice, chutney and sultanas with plenty of seasoning. Add the pasta, coriander, cucumber and celery, and toss everything together to coat in the curried mayonnaise. Pack into a container or bowl.

  • Can’t help but I like the idea of curry taste in it

  • The Best Recipes site has a great Curried Pasta Salad recipe & I hav elapsed tasted the one from the Australian Women’s Weekly cook book/ site which has cream & curry powder ????

  • Good idea by the mum/answer below to go to the source and ask about the particular salad.

  • I have a similar problem – I had a boxed lunch from a cafe in the USA while I was on a tour, loved the pasta salad, and can’t find a similar recipe. I emailed them to ask, but they didn’t answer – not even a No! Woe.

  • Curried Pasta Salad
    250g spirals pasta shapes cooked cooled
    1 tea spoon Keens Curry Powder (add more if you like a stronger taste)
    1 cup mayonnaise
    Half a Red Capsicum sliced thinly or diced
    1 carrot julienned or grated
    Half cup frozen Baby Peas or Beans
    1 table spoon of pine nuts for crunch
    Mix all together in a serving bowl and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
    You can add shredded Chicken or a tin of tuna (drained) or Prawns makes a nice change.

  • Did you try asking the person who organised the luncheon where they got it from or if they made it, if you can have the recipe?
    I always find going to the source the easiest option rather than going around in circles trying to find an answer.

  • Yes I agree, I would google maybe “curried pasta salad”

  • I make my salad with below ingredients
    1. Cooked pasta usually penne
    2. Whole egg Mayo
    3. Tomatoes cut into cubes
    4. Red onion diced

    Sometimes I will add cooked bacon, cucumber diced and whole eggs cut in 4s

    Mix all together, salt pepper to taste.

  • Our classic Women’s Weekly recipe book has a curried salad. We love curried potato and curried pasta salads too. We love to add a little curry to salads for a lift.

  • Have you tried to search it on google? There are so many recipes on the internet!
