Spice Guide

“ Spices are the life and soul of every Indian dish. They're what gives the food life and makes the flavours dance. My dad, and his dad before him, always instinctively understood this. That's why they always insisted on only buying the very best spices that they could find. And it's how we still work now. It's the only way that makes sense to us. It's also why my granddad worked so hard developing his spice pastes. It was a way of preserving in oil the flavours of just ground spices when they were still at their freshest.

Below you can find out more about the spices we use that are so crucial to giving everything we produce that authentically delicious taste of India. “
