Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Salmon Niçoise with Bombay aloo

    • Charlotte_vandenberg on May 30, 2021

      Beautiful salad to see and very tasteful. Fantastic for a summer dinner outside, but also for a weeknight dinner.

  • Tandoori-roasted chicken

    • etcjm on July 18, 2021

      Decided to give this a try since I unashamedly have been using the same tandoori kebab recipe forever. I used fillet and it was intended for the bbq. My daughter enjoyed it - she's the awkward one. However I felt it was too cardamom heavy with 1tsp of ground seeds. Maybe it's because it wasn't marinated for the full time. Not sure I'll do again, but if I do I will reduce it. Served with flatbread, tomato salad and tzatziki (made for a pork fillet recipe from Aegean which was to die for which I can't review because it was a library book).

Publishers Text

Acclaimed chefs Tony Singh and Cyrus Todiwala are on a mission to wake Britain up to the versatility of spices.

For too long, our spices have sat unused and dusty in cupboard shelves, when just a mere sprinking of cumin, a dash of turmeric or a handful of star anise has the power to turn our everyday food into an explosion of tastes and smells.

Tony and Cyrus have taken to the road, exploring the British Isles and adding their own spicy twist to our most classic and best-loved dishes. Try jazzing up a Sunday roast chicken with a honey and ginger, adding a cumin and coriander kick to a shepherd's pie or lacing a Victoria sponge with aromatic fennel seeds and cardamom.

With delicious, everyday recipes accompanied by Cyrus and Tony's top tips and favourite spices, The Incredible Spice Men will demystify the contents of your spice rack, and open your everyday cooking up to a world of exciting new flavours.
