The Spicery@home

We use The Spicery, a Bristol based mail order business that supplies some of the best restaurants in the UK, to supplement our home larder.  For far too long now we’ve had a pack called Seekh Kebab Night sitting in a cupboard looking terribly inviting.  Tonight we are going to create….

The pack includes spices for: seekh kebab; sizzling peppers; naan bread; garlic chilli chutney; raita herbs; chana masala; and even salad.  Extraordinary.  Most of the spices are familiar – we use mustard seeds, fenugreek and ginger all the time.  But ajowan, amchur and asafoetida – they are all new to me.

Rock works on the naan bread and the chana masala.  I work on the chutney, the raita, the sizzling peppers and the salad.  We share the task of creating the seekh kebabs.  The salad and raita just need mixing, pans for the chutney, chana masala, sizzling peppers and the kebabs are on the stove plus the naan bread is in the oven.


The whole process takes us most of two hours – but it is worth the effort.  All the dishes taste fantastic – super hot but flavoursome chutney, zingy salad and raita, fabulous naan and the masala, kebabs and peppers all work really well together.  We only used half the ingredients so, maybe we should do this again next week…

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
