Madras Curry blend is characterized by a delicious rich earthy tangy flavor, mild heat, and intense yellow color. Although it is not a traditional Indian spice blend, its history goes back to British colonial rule and the city of Madras in southern India.
Our Madras Curry blend is a classic and unique blend of herbs and spices that balances mild heat with intense flavor. It is characterized by its yellow color and rich, earthy, and pungent flavor. Combine madras spice mix with yogurt, coconut cream, or tomatoes and onions to give a thick rich texture to the curry. Alternatively, add a teaspoon to soups and stews instead of vegetable stocks. It is typically used in dishes where a milder curry flavor is required.
Our spice blends are better for you as they are preservative-free, additive-free, filler-free, sugar-free, and contain low or zero salt.
