Cheeky Masala Dubba

The perfect Masala Dubba for curry in a hurry

My Cheeky Masala Dubba

This is an extra little Masala Dubba I have at home. It is full of spices that are great for making quick curries. Making a good base for a curry takes time and sometimes you just don't have it, so this little tool kit allows you to skip a few steps so that you can make great curries really quickly .

Cumin Seeds

Cumin seeds have a very strong smell and taste. They are often confused with caraway seeds when looked at although the smell is very different. They have a slightly hot, bittersweet taste.

Brown Mustard Seeds 

These really pack a punch. They add a really nutty heat and richness to any Indian dish.

Fennel seeds

Fennel seeds add a hint of sweet aniseed and liquorice flavour to dishes.

Red Chilli flakes 

Chilli flakes are spicy and peppery and perfect when you want to add heat without masking any other flavours.

Turmeric powder

Turmeric has a deep golden colour. Turmeric is not used to colour dishes as people may think. It has a very tart, musky flavour, which gives off gingery aromas. It shouldn’t be overused as it can be overpowering.

Nigella Seeds

These are hard, crunchy little seeds that give an onion flavour to your dish

Fenugreek leaves

These are dried fenugreek leaves that need to be rehydrated in warm water. They give a nutty and sweet flavour which is similar to maple.
