This Costco coconut curry sauce is really quite spicy with a nice coconut flavor!
Today I’m reviewing this Costco KFI Coconut Curry cooking sauce. I’ve previously reviewed another KFI product from Costco, the Butter Chicken Sauce and really enjoyed it so when I saw Costco was carrying this coconut curry sauce I wanted to try it and review it.
Another similar product from Costco is the Mayura Cuisine Tikka Masala Sauce. I’ve also reviewed the Rao’s Marinara Sauce which is one of my favorite items from Costco as well as the Bulls-Eye Barbecue Sauce that we enjoy using for pulled pork or barbecue.
You can find the KFI Coconut Curry cooking sauce at Costco in the aisle with the oils and other sauces. The item number is 2149329.
This was too spicy for me but my husband who can handle heat a lot better than I can enjoyed it. You can definitely taste the coconut but it’s not super coco-nutty if you know wha I mean, just a pleasant coconut flavor.
There’s a bit of sweetness and noticeable acidity coming from the tomato base. If you look and taste hard enough you will find that there’s bits of shredded coconut in the cooking sauce that adds some texture to your dish!
For two 650 mL jars I paid $9.99 Canadian which isn’t bad, one jar can make a ton of curry.
I wanted to do a vegetarian curry so I didn’t use any chicken. One jar serves five to six individuals and the recipe is to heat two tablespoons of oil in a large pan over medium heat, add three chicken breasts that have been cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Stir fry for 10 minutes or until fully cooked and then add a jar of coconut curry sauce and summer for five minutes.
This is perfect for a quick & easy dinner. If you don’t use all of your coconut curry sauce you need to refrigerate the leftover sauce and it should be used within about a week.
1/6th of the jar is 130 calories, nine grams of fat, 11 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, four grams of sugar, one gram of protein and 830 mg of sodium. That’s a lot of sodium! The entire jar has almost 5000 mg of sodium in it. The fat content is also quite high but that’s to expected with whipping cream and coconut milk as ingredients listed.
This isn’t dairy free or vegan like the coconut green curry is at my local takeout place because it contains whipping cream. There is some sugar added but that is normal to see in curry.
Give it a try!
This was too spicy for me but if you’re someone who can handle heat in their curry and likes coconut you might really enjoy this.
Have you tried this? What did you think?
