Thanks for a delicious snack treat Sara. I have made this a number of times for myself.(I'm the only one who likes curry in my house) I love the combination of flavors in this recipe. Being a creature of habit I experimented with this the last time I made it. I left out the pretzels popcorn cereal and and corn chips and added a couple bags of those new Frito-Lay "Munchies". Wow! How delish but very habit forming! Read More

After having brought the curry mixture to a boil it had become a very thick gloppy glue. I added it into cereal mix anyway but it did not coat any of it. I melted 1/2 cup of butter with garlic powder and extra Worchestershire sauce and added it to cereal. I also added more curry powder. I mixed everything like crazy and baked it in oven. It came out great! It had really needed that butter. I just used double the amounts on the Worchestershire curry and garlic powder. Next time I will use double of everything and add half cup butter with it until it all boils. Read More

much better than all the other "generic" holiday party mixes. the spice level can be turned up by using a hotter curry powder. Read More

This is a hit among my friends! I bring it over to get-togethers and it is gone within 5 minutes... They ask me ahead of time if I'm going to make it! I double the curry "sauce" in order for it to cover all the snacks Read More

This is one of my new favorite snacks. The only minor change is that I used about 1.5 cups of pretzels instead of 2 and about 1.5 cups of corn chips instead of 2. This allows a little more coating. I also bake a little longer - about 35 mins total - to dry the coating a little more thoroughly. Read More

Thanks for the creative recipe! Just came out of the oven and is very flavorful. I added a little dash of cumin ginger and cinnamon powders to deepen the curry flavor and give it a more Bengali twist. It is super addictive! Read More

I followed the recipe to a "T" except for using rice Chex instead of corn Chex (couldn't find corn Chex). There was not enough sauce to coat everything and I had to double the amount. The flavour gets better the next day. It also smelled REALLY good while it was baking. I thought the flavour was okay but my family liked it more. Read More
