Mellow Yellow gives you the flavors of western Asia without the full throttle flavor of a traditional curry. Mellow Yellow flavors and colors like curry but allows the natural flavors of your ingredient to come through.

Try it on lighter meats like poultry, pork or veal as well as seafood and veggies. It is also great in dips, sauces and vinaigrette. Try it in West Indiana dishes as well. Curry is a good substitute.
