Organic Madras Curry Powder Standard Jar 45g Steenbergs details and description
Steenbergs Organic Madras Curry Mix is a Medium Hot Curry Powder . Curries - as we know them - are an invention of the British Raj. They are thought to have been invented in the 19th century for members of the East India Company. Axel Steenberg has created Steenbergs everday curry mix - organic Madras Curry Powder - to be a classic British style curry mix and to be really versatile. You can use a small amount to lift a vegetable soup or as a dry marinade on beef before barbecuing or mixed with mayonnaise for curried eggs during Christmas or perhaps even for a Saturday night curry meal!
The core elements to Steenbergs Organic Madras Curry Powder are the sweet spices (almost like our mixed spice) of cinnamon. Pungent spices such as cloves, cardamom and cumin add a depth of character. Steenbergs organic Indian chilli and organic fenugreek, Keralan organic black pepper and Sri Lankan organic ginger give it some bite - our mild and hot curry powders simply have higher/lower amounts of chilli powder. These almost conflicting flavours are melded together by amalgamating spices - organic fennel seeds, organic coriander seeds and organic turmeric (which also gives it a characteristic yellow colour). At Steenbergs, we then add a little powdered organic garlic and organic onion to increase the versatility of the curry mix.
For a simple curry, fry 1 chopped onion and 2 chopped garlic cloves in sunflower oil together with 2 tablespoons of Steenbergs organic Madras Curry Powder. Next brown 500g of chicken (cut into 2cm cubes) in the spices. Add 2tsp lemon juice, 1 can of chopped tomatoes and 250ml of vegetable stock. Cook for 2 hours on a low heat, then add 2tsp Steenbergs Organic Garam Masala and chopped fresh coriander leaves 5 minutes before the end. Serve with rice and dhal.
