Chef’s tips

You can add more curry powder, or use a stronger flavor curry powder, as this all depends on your own liking and taste buds.
You may also use regular mayonnaise and regular milk.

** IMPORTANT:  It is best to make this a day or two ahead of time in order for flavors to mingle to ensure a way more tasty dish.  It will keep up to 2 weeks in the fridge in a sealed container.
