We enjoyed this very much for lunch yesterday. Lovely combination of flavors. I searched high and low for Korma paste but couldn't find it in any of my local stores but did find Tikka paste so I used that instead. I also substituted sour cream for the mayonnaise (personal preference) and used chopped fresh peaches in place of the dried apricots. This is a nice change of pace from traditional pasta salads. Made for PRMR.

Great salad. I am really starting to enjoy curry. Nice combination of fruit. I also added some cilantro as FT suggested. I did not chop my apricots too small. I love dried apricots. made for ZWT 6.

I have to admit I was afraid at first that I was not going to like this salad because of all the fruit, but I was very pleasantly surprised. This made for a tasty lunch today. I used 1/2 lb seasoned cooked chicken breast from Trader Joe's for ease of preparation. I could not find korma paste so I used a korma cooking sauce and omitted the water in Step 4, since I assumed the paste would have a thicker consistency than the sauce. This seemed to work. Also, I did not use light mayo, as I didn't have any--just the full fat version!! Thanks for expanding my horizons. I've definitely never had a salad like this before. Made for Zingo ZWT6.

Shuz, what a lovely arrangement of chicken with curry pasta salad. YUM! This is a beautiful presentation, one that is just perfect for a brunch, or a celebration of some sort. The pineapple gives this such flavor and really balances and perfects the curry ingredients as well. Made for a delightful Sunday afternoon, ZWT6 2010

Loved this thanks! I used shell pasta as I had some already cooked and waiting to be used, but other than that I made this as posted. I used Pataks Korma paste and some home-made mango chutney as well as little Sharwoods, a scraping left in the jar! We ate this as a main meal alongside salad leaves for lunch on the terrace. I garnished the salad with more pineapple chunks and also some freshly chopped coriander from the garden, I love fresh coriander with curries! Made for Whine and Cheese Gang and ZINGO for ZWT6, many thanks Shuzbud! FT:-)
