This is my personal favorite spice mix.
you go to a grocer in India and ask for curry powder, you’re likely
to be asked, "Which one?" There is no such thing as a "curry powder" in
Indian cuisine; each dish has its own combination of spices that makes
it unique. Every family also has their own recipes for spice mixes so
that classic dishes can taste vastly different from household to
household. However, if you are looking for a place to start, then Madras
Curry Powder is your best bet; it has an earthy, fragrant combination
of spices that you can tweak to your taste. Madras Curry Powder
is a versatile spice mix. Use it wherever a recipe
calls for curry powder or whenever you want to spice up a dish. It is
great tossed with roasted vegetables, or in mayonnaise to make curried
potato salad. It can be added to vegetarian or meat dishes, used in
braises and sauces, or added to yogurt or sour cream to create authentic
Indian flavors. A quick meal can be made by adding a measure of this
curry powder in a pot with a can of coconut milk and whatever veggies,
tofu or meats you have on hand. Basically, you just stir, heat and eat.
For a lip smacking snack, sprinkle the curry on sweet potato fries, mix
into scrambled eggs or egg salad, tuna salad or even macaroni &

Our family has deep roots in India (especially South India) and we enjoy making fresh Indian food at home. A few years ago we began selling our homemade spices to help nonprofits, schools and farmers. It took off from there and now we're in specialty food markets, at food and wine events, at farmers markets, and of course online. Deborah (mom) is the owner of the company and our son, Anil, has been making spices since he was five. Now he's twenty and is our Master Spice Maker who roasts, grinds and oversees production of our seasonings. Rob was born and raised in south India and has an affinity for that type of food and spices. He's our spice teacher. We all share a deep commitment to our planet and it's caretakers-especially farmers. Purchasing our products directly from small farmers in the US helps us support farmers in India and Mexico through our sales. So every time you purchase our products you help support farmers.
