Vietnamese Curry Blend

4.9/5 from 17 Customers

This special World Curry Month blend is in honour of past spicerer and Vietnamese expert Tung, who has moved back to his hometown in London. It’s heavier on fennel than a usual curry powder and contains the all important lemongrass, kaffir lime and star anise for a taste that’s unmistakably Vietnamese. Good eaten as they would in Vietnam - with some freshly sliced baguette!

One of my finest curries. I love this and have ordered a few more mixes.

Great to hear it turned out so well! Happy Spicing!


Absolutely delicious! I made a vegetarian variant with mixed vegetables (Peppers, babycorn, parsnip and celery) instead of chicken/tofu. I found I needed some extra coconut milk to make sure everything was covered whilst cooking, but other than that the recipe worked perfectly with the change. Delicious, fragrant and great for impressing guests. Definitely buying again!

Yum! Sounds fantastic with the mixed vegetables, we're happy to hear everyone enjoyed it!


I'm glad I came across them. All the spices you need, very fresh, in the right amount, well packaged and 'under one roof', so to speak. Recommended. 🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶



I love The Spidery. Their spices are very high quality and as fresh as can be. Their spice kits are a weekly treat for us; always something new and interesting and always easy to follow.

A real sophisticated take on the taste of curry....

Nic Barlow


Good service and great products sent to Spain. I love the blends often using a bit more than suggested (especially the haldi blend) and the spices are good quality and well packed.

Would have been five but think some of the spices are hotter than indicated.

Bought the Vietnamese curry blend because we have been to Vietnam and wanted to recreate the wonderful tastes experienced. Followed the recipe included in the pack.. However the meal was “non discript” . Lacked flavour. Very disappointing. I don’t
