DAL PALAK (LENTIL & SPINACH)
Dal in any form is comfort food in India. The addition of spinach makes this recipe not only incredibly wholesome and flavourful but a plant-based powerhouse! Our gourmet blend, which includes premium spices such as turmeric, coriander, cumin and chilli, ensures a smoky, spicy and super-healthy meal.
Paneer is derived from the Persian word for cheese, and shahi is the term for royal in reference to the Imperial Court of the Mughal Empire. This creamy and indulgent North Indian curry has subtle layers and a real depth of flavour. It's bound to satisfy both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.
AMRITSARI CHANA MASALA
Also known as chole masala, this is one of Punjab’s true soul foods. There are of course many versions of chickpea curries across India, but this sumptuous version hails from the city of Amritsar, home to the beautiful Golden Temple. It is a signature dish of the region which is commonly served with the fluffy deep-fried leavened bread, Bhatura. This was a regular on the Sunday lunch menu at Mrs Balbir Singh’s home.
ORIGINAL GARAM MASALA
The most important spice blend in Northern India. Different family or regional versions of Garam Masala are used in the majority of Indian kitchens on a daily basis. We include our own heritage blend in this gift box for you to use towards the end of each of the recipes in this gift box as a finishing spice, elevating the whole dish to perfection.
Whereas all our spice blends are vegan-friendly, you may need to use your favourite vegetarian or vegan alternatives in our recipes and serving suggestions where required.
The spices we use are free from gluten but are processed in a facility that also handles nuts and wheat
