Mrs Balbir Singh's Indian Cookery
First published in 1961
This internationally-acclaimed cookbook is a sacred text for anyone pursuing India’s culinary heritage. Generations have turned to this book for guidance on authentic Indian recipes
Really pleased to find a spice rub that reminds me of my first experience of tandoori
Delicious spicy rub turns ordinary chicken into something that sparkles on your tongue. Highly recommended.
Came early still haven’t used it but it smells gorgeous
This is a repeat order because these spices are so good that they make home-made Indian food really special. The recipe cards are an added bonus as they are so easy to follow.
Bought this gift set for my daughter & son-in-law as they absolutely love Indian food, but haven't had the chance to give it to them yet because they have been on holiday. They know I've got this for them and are thoroughly looking forward to using the spices when they return home. Must admit the odours are great and I'm sure they will find them very useful in their cooking with daughter (vegetarian) as well as son-in-law a meat lover. Once they have had time to cook with them, I will get back to you with their comments so "watch this space".
Great spice blends , really pleased .
Thoroughly satisfied with all mixes. Prompt delivery after order. Will be buying again.
Have tried many spices in the past but never been able to get that authentic taste but these spices are amazing and taste fantastic
Delivered very efficiently and well packaged. Great products , already started using. Fantastic flavours and taste.
The richest chicken curry I have eaten in years. The spice mixture blends layers of flavour into the chicken. A marvellous eating experience! - and so easy to cook....
Not tried to cook with it yet, I will just follow the recipe and hope it is as good as my other purchases.
Excellent, Spiced with great distinctive individual flavours.
Spice blend was excellent and recipe so say to follow. Made a great tasty curry. Will definitely be using again.
I added a little shahi chicken masala to my chicken soup and with only a quarter teaspoon it gave the soup more zing and flavour than I expected. Very impressed!
Never been able to make a curry that tasted right! With these spices I made Lamb Rogan Josh and my husband loved it.
Very nice easy to prepare and cook once you have all the ingredients,im wheel chair bound and found it quite easy
Rogan Josh was fab. Recipe was easy to follow and shared say to make. Spice blend was so tasty and save a lot of work making up your own. Will definitely be using again.
The rogan Josh is amazing. Very easy made. Simple to follow, couldn't be easier to make. Definitely recommend it to anyone. No more expensive takeaways.
Fabulous spice blends and a really easy to follow recipe. I just made Shahi Chicken Masala and the Amritsar Chana and they were splendid. Al least as good as our local restaurant. Mrs Balbir Singh's recipes are fabulous (I don't mean just good - I mean like something out of a fable).
Carefully packaged spices arrived promptly. Enclosed recipe and instruction cards very easy to follow. Spice blends, all three - Roghan Josh, Garam Masala and Tandoori - spot on and authentic tasting. Simplifies the cooking process and improves consistency of results.
Just follow the recipe, could not be simpler. I used Tesco lamb rumps (boneless chump chops)
Followed the recipe and I must say it was delicious , will definitely order again
Now we can cook comparable meals with those we enjoy when out in our favourite restaurants - just taken stocks of 3 x Kashmiri Rogan Josh/Original Garam Masala packs to keep us going to add authentic flavour to the excellent meat/vegetables we source locally
Used this with the Kashmiri rogan josh it made an exelent curry.
So perfectly blended just pinch of it and food becomes o delicious. Masala is so fresh. No need to buy from back home or any shops. Definitely recommend *****
Only my second purchase but when you open the tin and smell mmmm just wonderful not the stale smell that you can get from some
Excellent product will be ordering again
This is the best Garam Masala that I've ever used - and it's versatile enough for many recipes and meals. Love it!!!
