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
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
I love the way these spices arrived beautifully packed and complete with recipe cards. I tried the chicken masala and followed the recipe to the letter (which I don't normally do) but wanted to see how authentic it was - and I cook a lot of Indian food. I was a bit concerned initially, as by the time I'd added yoghurt, cream, almonds, passata etc, I thought there would be no taste and it would be too creamy. It wasn't - it was beautiful - a lovely curry with a great kick. I'd thoroughly recommend these spices and I'm going to order another lot.
Tried the Rogan Josh as soon as spices arrived and what a belter. Really full/spicy taste but not too overpowering... can’t wait to try the others
Tend to buy jar sauces from supermarket and tried these after. Family recommendation and glad I did. Beautiful taste in finished curry . Will probably be ordering more soon !!
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!
As with everything else we have tried from this company, this is excellent.
Good product and very prompt delivery
Wonderful flavour added to chicken breast then grilled wonderful taste ,absolutely delicious.
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
Wow, I have just made the best Rogan Josh ever.....and I have made a few.
Just the right amount of spices without too much heat!
Will be buying more in the future.
Also bought the gift pack as a present for my Son in Law who is a definite foodie, can’t wait to hear his reviews as well.
I love making Indian food but have found with work and life commitments I have been unable to cook many from scratch recently. This is probably the best spice blend I have every tried and the recipe still makes you feel that you have made a real curry. Add to this the garam masala mix at the end made this Lamb Rohan Josh an amazing meal.
Nice product. Easy to make. I made this with chicken added veg and all was good.
Great product,great service.
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
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
