| Why do you need a Curry Kit?
Curry is now the UK’s number one dish. But why
is it so popular? Without doubt the British public love the special
flavours and textures of these exotic foods.
However, because of the bewildering variety of spices
available and the time consuming methods some recipe books propose,
most people shy away from venturing into the wonderful world of
cooking their favourite food at home. Instead they resort to the
expensive mass produced ready-made sauces and pastes, perhaps
including preservatives you'd rather not consume. Surely you would
prefer to use your own fresh ingredients and adjust the taste to
suit your palate rather than accept the commercial output of a
Curry Kits are aimed at those who wish to prepare
for themselves the more popular dishes enjoyed by so many people
today at a fraction of the cost of using ready made sauces and
Curry Kits contain the essential spices, herbs and recipes so
that no matter where you are in the World, you will be able to
prepare one of your favourite dishes that you have become
accustomed to from your local Indian restaurant in the UK.

All our spices and herbs are as fresh as we can source. But
don’t worry if it takes you a while to work your way through
the generous supply we provide, the spices have long shelf-lives.
Here are some of the advantages of making your own curry dishes
with our Curry Kits compared with restaurants/take-aways and
ready-made sauces and pastes:
- A typical curry dish for four people can be made much more
economically than by using a restaurant, supermarket chilled meal
or cooking with a bottled sauce. Each Curry Kit contains sufficient
spices for you to prepare your favourite meal many times over,
quickly and inexpensively.
- You provide the bulk of the raw materials so you can be sure of
their quality and freshness.
- If you have special dietary requirements (lactose intolerance
etc) you can ensure you exclude all trace of any such
- If you have religious restrictions on your diet you can ensure
the ingredients are compliant with that need.
- Some traditional recipies can be rather more fattenning than
you might like, you can modify the recipe to reduce the calorie
- Some "ready made" curries may be too strong or too mild for
your palate. Cook them yourself and you can control the amount of
spicy heat they contain. Indeed many of those who say they "don't
like curry" really mean they don't like strong/hot curry and are
pleasantly surprised once they try a mild one.
- Vegetarian or Vegan diets are easily catered for.
- While it has become relatively easy to source the spices you
need in larger British towns some can only be found in less common
Asian shops. The situation is even worse if you are an ex-pat
living in a country where curry is not as popular as it is in
Britain. Even if the necessary spices are available they often cost
much more than in Britain.
- The ingredients of our kits include some individual spices and
some ready-blended mixtures. This makes it easy to produce a
standard recipe and easy to adjust key ingredients to produce a
unique dish suited to your taste. We provide each spice and blend
separately, this allows you to vary the recipes by adjusting the
amounts of the individual spices.
- A finished curry will have better flavour if different spices
go into the dish at different points in the cooking process, an
option which is not available with ready-made sauces and
- Many Curries respond well to freezing so you can cook more than
you need and keep a few portions in storage for a later date. This
has the added advantage of being able to serve curries in a hurry
when you feel least like cooking.
- Our methods and recipes allow you to make several different
types of curry dish at the same time with only a little extra
