Break out of your boring food prison! One of the things we are proudest about Casa M Spice Co® seasoning blends is how versatile every blend is. None more so than Chain Reaction®! Uncontrolled Chain Reaction® brings the heat to this curry rice while meshing perfectly with the traditional Indian flavors in garam masala.
Garam masala is a blend of spices common throughout India and surrounding countries. What’s most fascinating about garam masala and curry powders used around the world is the infinite variations and recipes that exist. Common ingredients in garam masala are black peppercorns, mace, cinnamon, cloves, black cardamom, nutmeg, and green cardamom. If you can’t find garam masala in your local supermarket, there are many versions available for sale online including endless recipes for making your own. As you begin to experiment with these incredible flavors, you might create your own unique blend!
As always, from our table to yours... #SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #ChemistryInTheKitchen #CasaMSpice
