Hopefully the first products to buy on www.omemade.com will be available very soon.
One of the first products available will be the ‘Ome Made Mild Curry Masala.
I started making my own curry masalas when I was a teenager. Over the years I have made modifications and finally ended up with something that is a perfect base for almost any curry.
There are some eighteen spices and herbs that go into ‘Ome Made Mild Curry Masala. The whole spices such as cumin and coriander (and a little Basmati rice to help thicken the sauce) are gently roasted before being ground to release the natural oils within the spices and give a greater depth of flavour.
Once the whole spices and rice are roasted and ground, they are combined with the other ingredients.
A little Gram flour goes into the mix to help thicken your sauce and a little salt to help blend the spices.
Compared with other curry powders on the market ‘Ome Made Mild Curry Masala contains very little salt and no flour to bulk it out, which also makes it suitable for a Gluten Free diet.
Only a little chilli is added so it’s suitable for those that don’t like to much heat. If I want a hot curry I just add fresh chillies or more chilli powder.
One heaped teaspoon per portion or a tablespoon for four portions is generally the right amount. Just fry in a little oil or ghee along with some onion, garlic and ginger before adding the rest of your ingredients.
