In our house, we love a good curry. Really, we love any and all Indian food, even a lemon pickle (if you know, you know). Admittedly I don’t share them on here enough, but truth be told I’m pretty awful when it comes to cooking Indian style foods. I just can’t get the spice combinations right, so I use pre-made.
You were all gasping as you read that right? So, out of character I know, but companies like Teeny Tiny Spice Co, make it easy for me, and I love them for that. I’ve been using spices form Teeny Tiny Spice Co. for a looonng time. In fact, one of my first posts included their tandoori spice (check it out here). I actually discovered them during a random shopping trip with my MIL (before she was my MIL) in VT (back when they were based there) and have been using them since.
The main thing that I love about their spice mixes is that there isn’t any fluff. It’s straight spice, no extra salt or sneaky stevia mixed in. It’s just straight spices that you can use how you like and then add in any sweetness or salt or whatever. Also, they are all organic.
This Massaman Curry spice mix is a new addition to my Teeny Tiny Spice Co. cabinet and one that I believe will be a staple going forward. The whole family loved this curry sauce. To make it all I did was saute some vegetables with a few tablespoons of the spice and then add some coconut milk. It was seriously that easy. The meatballs were, of course, a little more involved but to serve. However, once cooked, I just tossed them into the curry as well. It all came together so easily and quickly.
Chuck raved about it, Monster loved it, and the leftovers were even better the next day. This is one curry we will be re-making again and again as it’s clearly a family favorite.
