I use my spices all the time and the recipes are amazing !!
I just purchased this gift box for my sister who is exstatic about the variety of flavours. It was an excellent purchase..
We really enjoyed making and eating our first meal ( Shahi Chicken Masala ) after buying the Gourmet Gift Box. I was going to title my review 'the taste of India' but as unfortunately, I've never been it wouldn't be quite correct. With the enclosed recipe cards the dishes are quite easy to make and tasty. I look forward to trying another very soon.
I followed the recipe for the lamb Rogan and the chicken Shahi both where very easy to make and very tasty indeed i will be cooking these both again
slightly over priced i thought however i will be purchasing again as very happy with the product kind regards Dan Crowley
Expensive! Slightly delayed delivery but good product
Excellent service as always. Fast delivery. Thank you.
Not used the two items yet, I’m using the tandoori rub Saturday will let you know, thank you
These spice mixes are amazing. They make cooking so simple. I will definitely buy again
Very nice flavour but on a personal level would like alittle hotter. Wish the tin was bigger though as have large family.
Wow! Had people round for dinner and had to work that day. Marinated 2 chickens the night before and cooked Tandoori Roast Chicken with salad super easy, super tasty and grateful host and guests you made me look like a pro. Thank you will be recommending!
Easy order process and prompt delivery. The product came beautifully packed, complete with recipe cards and company background. I haven’t yet used the powder but I am pretty sure the result will be great.
Good recipe card and an excellent product
Really good ready made spice mix for a foolproof curry. Also great easy to follow recipe card. If you adjust the amount and ingredients for personal taste, as with all good recipes, worked a treat. Reducing the garlic for me worked well. Goes well with the chickpea
Made my first tandori meal and could taste the quality.
Makes a beautiful curry
I have not used a recipe for Indian or Asian food for decades, neither have I used spice mixes in that time. I used to make my own but went on to make or buy paste mixtures. Mrs. Singh's spices have just made me re-assess the benefits of using carefully roasted and blended fresh spice mixes. The recipe was easy as anything for the Kashmiri lamb and daal palak. Fantastic results. Ready made is not the cheapest way to cook, but the tins will go a fairly long way and make quite a few meals before the need to re-stock. I will be trying all then onto adapting my own versions of the recipes.
Excellent service as always. Fast delivery. Thank you.
Simply the best product on the market.
For years I have used curry paste or the sauce/powder/spice packets, but never, ever, again.
Mrs Balbir’s artisan spices are great fun when creating a home curry and tastes like everything has been created fresh and from scratch.
Don’t look elsewhere, buy now, you’ll not be disappointed!
Easy order process and prompt delivery. The product came beautifully packed. I haven’t yet used the powder but I am pretty sure the result will be great.
Bought after seeing many times on instagram - so glad I did! Really enjoyed the curry I made, so tasty and flavoursome and so easy
Easy and tasty , well worth it
This was full of taste and so easy, I love cooking Asian food anyway but this was so easy and so authentic
I never usually leave reviews but felt that this product deserved a mention, easy to follow recipe, although I did substitute the lamb for chicken, and the end product was a delicious easy meal. Already ordered again.
We are really pleased with our purchases - the smell and taste is authentic and delicious. Treat yourself - you won’t be disappointed.
so far so good Highly recommend
Very pleased. Lovely flavour. Thank you.
Made it last night used red lentils, all I had, it was delicious
I ordered 3 jars of spices and would say are the best I have come across before, very speedy delivery, great service, I will be back again.
I marinate chicken thighs in a mixture of yoghurt, ginger, garlic, chilli, lemon juice and this garam masala. It’s wonderful!
I cook authentic Panjabi ( N Indian ) food and was happily surprised with this product. It has its natural variation in taste ( slightly more Cinnamon ) and the taste is exceptional . The freshness is the king here. Ground fresh ingredients should smell and taste just like these. Using less is more to allow it to add a base layer of fragrance and hint. Buy in the stores in the uk at this quality is not possible and the care cannot be taken when its bulk sold. I count of this Masala for my 1 stop. Yummy
