Kosher salt

8 ounces elbow macaroni

1/4 cup cold milk

2 tablespoons curry powder (preferably Madras-style)

1/4 cup peanut oil

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1/4 cup mango chutney, finely chopped

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

Freshly ground pepper

1 10-ounce bag broccoli slaw mix

1/2 cup chopped scallions

1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook until al dente; drain and toss with the milk in a large bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, toast the curry powder in a small dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk in the peanut oil and cook until the oil is curry-colored; let cool. Whisk the mayonnaise, chutney and curry oil in a large bowl, then whisk in the vinegar to make a smooth dressing. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the broccoli slaw mix, scallions and cilantro to the dressing and toss until combined. Stir in the pasta and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
