Most of us have a few unused spice blends in the back of the cupboard because we only cook with them for one particular dish.
Or we feel a bit overwhelmed by the myriad spices in the supermarket, not knowing which ones marry together to create the best flavour. Sanjay's Spice Kitchen is here to demystify spices, reassuring you that you don’t need endless time, fancy equipment or a full storecupboard to create delicious dishes with ease – whether it’s a working lunch, a midweek supper, a special date night, friends round at the weekend or a family feast. Enjoy Spiced Peach and Goat's Cheese Salad, Harissa Chickpea Stew, Fiery Blackened Cajun Chicken and Mamma Spice’s Dal Makhani and, just to emphasize how versatile spices can be, there is a 'Spice Freedom' recipe in each chapter that takes one dish and shows how, by switching the blend, you can open a world of flavour possibilities.
And, if you want to go a step further, Sanjay has given away the secrets of his award-winning spice blends – including Tandoori, Garam Masala, Sri Lankan, Mexican, Za’atar, Jerk, Harissa, Baharat and Cajun – so you can make them at home, from scratch.
It's time to spice up your repertoire and create stunning dishes in the kitchen.
