Master Indian Cuisine
When Master Indian Spice began selling spice kits, we started with an Indian classic: Butter Chicken. This creamy, irresistable restaurant entrée is one of the best-loved Indian dishes in the world. This is our package recipe.
Recently, we wrote an article on the best Indian Spices to use when expanding your spice larder. They're spices you can find at any Indian grocer. We made the list a top 20, and there were a few that didn't get in, but which definitely deserve mention. One of those is Nigella, or, as it is known in India, Kalonji.
If you are a cook or a chef, your spice larder is like your artist's palette. It only takes a handful of Indian recipes to explore a whole new world of culinary colour, metaphorically speaking. For that reason, we've assembled a list of the 20 spices we consider the most essential to Indian cooking as we know it.
In all cooking, you need Umami: that depth of flavour that tells your mouth and your stomach that what you’re eating is going to nourish you.
