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
This was my first time trying my hand at Indian cooking... And it went very well I cooked a chicken masala and it turned out great extremely tasty!
Fantastic set of spices to make some tasty indian delicasies. The box and the tins are of a great standard too. Would highly recommend you give them a go. You even get some recipe cards to try.
I purchased the mixedspice box as a Christmas gift so can't comment on the actual spice blends. The packaging is excellent, I'm very happy to give this as a gift. Delivery was fast and I would buy again from this site.
Very pleased with these Spices and recipes. I have made two the recipes already and they proved to be delicious. Looking forward to more recipes and Spices.
Being Indian I have used so many spice mixes, I have to say the spices in the Mrs Balbir Singh gourmet box are the best I have come across. Fresh, fragrant and complex. Love the Amritsari Chana masala and of course am using the garam masala with everything. Keep them coming,
Followed the instructions and used a whole chicken marinated overnight
Taste was wonderful, I would highly recommend
We used Mrs Balbir Singh’s tandoori rub on our chicken skewers to take to a barbecue and they were so delicious that everyone ate ours and we didn’t get any! We had to make some separately for ourselves. Great flavour and will def be a go-to for us!
and well packaged with prompt delivery
As the title suggests it has complexity delightfully. Great colour and those in the know, Kashmiri Mirch ( chillie add more warmth than heat & powdery red hue.
Excellent, subtle flavours, with some deceptively hidden heat.
Made the Shahi Chicken as per the recipe although cooked it a bit longer. Whole family agreed it was the most flavoursome curry I’d ever made. Cannot wait to try the others.
At least that's what my friend said. I have been doing Indian cooking for many years and that was her comment last week.
Love these spices. Makes my curries taste so authentic. Love that you get a recipe card with each one
Love these spices, am now making great curries.
Excellent - as per all Mrs Balbir Singh's spices - highly recommended (and have done!)
My partner and I had this tonight , very very tasty if I do say so myself it all came out perfect with very little effort
So pleased with these spices, to finally make a restaurant curry at home tastes gorgeous. Speedy delivery too what more good be better
This wonderful spice blend arrived last week in the mail. We purchased some lamb shoulder right away and used the Kashmiri spice mix blended with yoghurt. The most awesome curry!
Super Spices....Super Service...........10/10

Absolutely brilliant will definitely be buying again
Fantastic flavours to make an authentic curry, recipes is very easy to follow. Highly recommended.
a high end product,very nice.
Bought these for stocking fillers, I also purchased the tandoori rub earlier, & was very pleased, used it on chicken, was very tasty...
These spice mix’s make it so easy to make great curries.
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
Great aroma! Used it this week great success!
Smells beautifully fragrant, enhances my cooking to perfection, will be back to try the others soo.
Excellent used it before.
My first order - Garamond masala. It smells delicious but I haven’t really used it yet, just a very small addition to a recipe. I am making curries for visitors this week and I am sure it will make all the difference though.
