Chef's Tips:

Want More Flavour?

To enhance the flavour of your meat or chicken curry add a stick of cinnamon and 2 or three cloves to the heated oil before adding the other ingredients.

The Secret Ingredient

To enhance the flavour of your vegetable dishes add a teaspoon of whole cumin seeds to the heated oil and allow them to brown before adding the other ingredients.

Not Hot Enough?

If you like your curries hotter add a little dry red chilli powder to the dish.

Keep It Together!

Before you cook your fish soak it in 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of salt for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly in cold water and you're ready to cook! This will stop the fish falling apart during cooking.

For Curries with an 'Onion Sauce' base:

• To make a thicker sauce base, puree the onions.

• If more sauce is required add - 1 cup water 5 minutes before the end of cooking time.

"Dear Spices of India, Many thanks for a great service! I was brought up in Birmingham, home of the Balti, but moved to Cornwall 15 years ago. Gorgeous here it might be, but I missed my weekly Balti fix, and had to resort to making my own, usually from a jar, or the mass produced pastes available in supermarkets. All I could taste was vinegar, (not nice) but with the help of your website, and the availability of fresh ingredients, and authentic spices, and useful recipe tips, I'm now making my own curries, equal in taste and quality of any I've eaten in Birmingham restaurants. I ordered fresh greens, and other ingredients late Monday evening, and they arrived early Wednesday morning. My bunches of Methi leaves were green fresh, and fragrant, and in excellent condition. Well done!! A great service I will certainly be reccommending to friends and family."
