The Spice Tailor

We are big fans of curry Inside the Wendy House.  I love how versatile Indian cuisine is, and how well it translates into vegetarian cookery.  Although I occasionally make curry from scratch, I generally opt for the time and effort-saving short cut of using jar sauces which are OK, but don't taste like an authentic Indian.  The Spice Tailor is a  new range of quality cooking sauces that are speedy and easy to use and taste like real Indian food should!

The Spice Tailor has a range of seven curry sauces that have been tailor made to let you create authentic Indian dishes with a fresh and modern outlook.  Created by Anjum Annad, the sauces showcase some of the best Indian dishes that she has chosen and developed.  They are free from artificial additives and are completely vegetarian. They also allow you to get dinner on the table in ten minutes!  You can tailor your own meal by adding  your choice of protein or vegetables and each pack comes with serving suggestions.

Each one comes with a packet of spices and include a red Guntur chilli if you want extra heat.  Some include a marinade or base sauce as well as the main cooking sauce.

I was sent a Keralan Coconut Curry and an Original Tikka Masala to try out.

I really liked the cardboard sleeves that attached to the individual plastic bags containing the spices and sauces.  It made the product really stand out from other curry sauces on the market.  Each pack serves 2-3 people, so I made both curries for a full family meal.

It was so easy to make the two curries and they were really quick and easy to do.  I was so impressed by the taste of both curries.  The Tikka Masala worked so well with the Paneer which was seared with the spice infused oil and marinade.  The Kerulan was mild but flavoursome.  

These sauces will make a perfect store cupboard stand-by but are also good enough to serve up at a dinner party or for a special meal.

The Spice Tailor Sauces are available in Korma, Mangalore Herb, Tikka Masala, Rogan Josh, Keralan Coconut Curry, Punjabi Tomato Curry and Spiced Spinach Curry flavours.  They are available to purchase from The Spice Tailor website or from Waitrose for £2.89 a packet.
