Famous for having been an unintentionally well kept secret from the British, when the Tandoori spice mix was 'discovered', it instantly became a favourite. A well known prime minister of India was so in awe of the mix, he invited several of the worlds most powerful people to try it including John F Kennedy! The blend of herbs, bright color and incredible effect on any dish it becomes part of gave it instant fame and recognition.
Spice Level: Mild ( All our spice mixes come mild. If you would like to make it spicier, we recommend adding fresh chillies when preparing. The truly authentic is to use green and red chillies, but we've had some fantastic feedback with habaneros, jalapeños and tons more. Try changing things up, and remember how you add is up to you, but we recommend slowly adding more as you get more comfortable with spicier foods).
