2 tbsp curry powder
½ chicken stock
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp peanut butter
70 ml water
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
160 ml condensed milk
1 tsp chilli sauce
1.5 tbsp soy sauce
½ cup curry sauce
10 pcs chicken nuggets
¼ cups cooking oil
2 tbsp curry sauce
2 tbsp butter
4 eggs pinch of salt
1 stalk spring onion (sliced thinly)
4 tbsp curry sauce
2 packets of instant noodles
1 stalk coriander leaves (sliced thinly)
1 chili padi (sliced thinly)
salt (to taste)
You can add more condensed milk but this will make it sweeter. Therefore, you should also ensure a balanced ratio among the amount of milk, curry powder and peanut butter you use in the mixture to protect the overall flavor when you thicken the sauce.
The curry powder is the most important ingredient, but the distinct flavor of the McDonald’s curry sauce also comes from the peanut butter.
Aside from nuggets, you can cook the homemade curry sauce with eggs or noodles, as we will show in our recipes. You can also have the sauce as a dip for other kinds of snacks if you want to explore the fusion of tastes and textures. Pairing the curry sauce with the Indonesian begedil is one idea!
Use the Japanese curry roux as your curry powder: The curry roux is already a blend of various spices which makes it a perfect ingredient for the McDonald’s curry sauce. Choose the ‘hot’ version when you are out shopping for this!
Add garam masala for more spice: While some curry powder brands come with various levels of spice, you can also add in the Indian-favorite garam masala for a little kick. Avoid adding too much as this will overpower the nutty flavor of the sauce.
Use Japanese soy sauce: Japanese soy sauce is usually less salty which is ideal for those who prefer the salt content to be lower. If you only have the Chinese soy sauce, you can reduce the portion by half a tablespoon.
Add condensed milk to sweeten: If you prefer a sweeter aftertaste of the sauce while still enjoying the spice from the curry powder, you can add in more condensed milk.
Choose creamy peanut butter: The sauce must have a good consistency without any chunks. Therefore, choose the creamy peanut butter, regardless of the brand, instead of the chunky option.
Below we bring you the recipe to our homemade McDonald’s curry sauce. We also explore some recipes using the curry sauce as an ingredient or condiment! Remember to pour the curry sauce into a bottle for storage so it is easier to use the next time the cravings hit!
