SHAHI CHICKEN MASALA
According to food historians around the world, Mrs Balbir Singh’s Shahi Chicken Masala is the dish that the world famous Chicken Tikka Masala originates from. It’s a little more creamy and indulgent, with subtle layers and a real depth of flavour. This should be no surprise as it’s roots lie in the royal kitchens of the Mogul Emperors. A unique, slightly decadent and moreish curry.
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.
KASHMIRI ROGAN JOSH
This aromatic lamb curry is a signature dish of Kashmiri cuisine, and is one of the main dishes in the famous multi-course meal, wazwan. Kashmir is a place where one sees nature at its height, a soul-stirring spectacle which will linger in one’s mind forever. The cuisine is a magnificent blending of the culinary arts of the Moghuls and the Kashmiris.
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.
