Our Madras Curry Powder is going to blow your mind. This intense blend of coriander, turmeric, fennel, salt, cumin, fenugreek, caraway, and chili is complex, mesmerizing, and delicious. Curries – as a stewed dish, have been made in India for centuries. But the potent spice blend that we’ve come to know as Curry Powder has a much younger origin. The mixture is a commercially prepared mixture of spices first marketed in the west in the 18th Century. The blends were exported to Britain by Indian merchants. It was a mixture similar to garam masala.
Because of its complexity and wide range of included spices, the Madras Curry Powder is the perfect spice blend to have stocked and ready in your kitchen. Whether it's simple snacks like spiced popcorn, nuts, or potato chips. The mixture is powerful enough to stand up to long cooking times in braises, stews, and traditional curries but also delicate and complex enough to be sprinkled last minute as a finishing spice. Try using it to season raw meats before roasting or braising. Cuts like chicken thigh, lamb leg, or beef chuck roasts. It would make an incredible finishing spice on sea bass Crudo or shrimp ceviche. Imagine the incredible color and flavor you’d get by blending it into a fresh hummus or yogurt dip. Tossing some root veggies like carrot, parsnip, and radish in Madras Curry Powder would infuse them with flavor and turn something ordinary into something extraordinary!
