Contains a whole spice pouch, a base sauce and a stir-in sauce
Cut the meat, fish, paneer or vegetables into generous pieces or halve your boiled eggs.
If you don't like whole spices, powder these in a pestle and mortar and add them in at the end. Alternatively, if left whole, remove them with a spoon before serving.
Heat 1 tsp of oil in a small pan, add the whole spices and chilli(if using) and cook for 20 seconds
Add the fresh ingredient and brown lightly. Add the base sauce and cook for 1 minute over a highish heat.
Stir in the main sauce and 2 tbs. water, or as needed, and simmer until the meat, fish, paneer or vegetables are cooked, for around 3-6 minutes.
Serve with The Spice Tailor Naans, rice or parathas
Cut or chop three handfuls of mixed vegetables into bite-sized pieces (we like to go traditional and use cauliflower florets, green beans, carrots and peas). Add a handful of paneer cubes or chickpeas for added protein. Heat 2 tsp. vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the spices from the sachet for 20 seconds, adding the extra chilli for optional heat. Add in the vegetables (except the peas), the paneer - if using - and a little seasoning. Sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add both sauces from the pouches and bring to a boil. Simmer gently until the cauliflower and carrots are cooked through, add in the spinach and peas and a small splash of boiling water. Bring back to a simmer and serve. I like to garnish the dish with some toasted nuts.
Serve with naan or a rice pilaf.
For added texture and some sweetness, add some chopped dried figs, dates or apricots into the curry.
This makes a delicious savoury pie filling with vegetables or chicken or both added to it.
Add a small splash of cream or coconut cream for added richness. Add a little saffron for a subtle change of flavour that makes it feel more regal.
A really good base for stronger flavours, try adding dill or other soft herbs for a flavour change - or some tomatoes for some tang.
