Red chilli cumin

Coriander black pepper

Turmeric mustard

My basic spice box for curry

Warmth: Nothing is as warmly delicious as a good curry or as infernally dramatic as a hot chilli sauce!

    1. Loved the post. Thank you for sharing! Next time I am in England I know where to get my fix 🙂
      Here’s a post I wrote about curry some time back… tokillamimingbird.wordpress.com/2014/11/26/evolution-gave-you-hands-for-a-reason-and-it-was-to-cook-and-eat-indian-food/


    1. Is Iran really the no.1 country in spices? I always thought it was the South and South-East Asian countries that dominated in that respect. I was taught that most of the spices were exported from there to the Middle-East and Europe. I would be keen to read your source 🙂 Thank you for your kind comments 🙂


      1. I confirm 1 million times, that South if Iran of mountains is the ultimate spices. I did tried few times and I had to sing don’t cry for me. Middle East the majority of time will win over food and its taste.


Go for it! I know you want to.
