about Modern Day Masala - Online:
We love Indian food (and if you haven't tried it before, you're in for a treat!), but the long list of ingredients and time-consuming steps usually required can be daunting. Using these pre-mixed spice packets, we were able to simply - and easily - prepare some of our Indian favorites. Each packet makes enough to serve six and includes easy-to-follow cooking instructions and a (short!) list of additional ingredients you'll need to prepare each dish.
For parents interested in broadening their children's palates, the flavors of the mixtures are tempting enough to encourage tasting, yet moderate enough to appeal to those not accustomed to strong spices or flavorings. Our favorite is the Butter Chicken - a spicy pan-sauteed chicken that has a rich, buttery sauce made with tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. The Organic Vegetable Gold turned ordinary cauliflower and potatoes into a bold, flavorful dish, and the mildly seasoned Basmati rice is a great complement to any meal. (Note: More mixtures are available on the site, and more are coming soon.)
Each spice mix uses fresh organic ingredients and is free of artificial flavors, colors, and MSG. All right, we've put away the take-out menu, and we no longer fear making it ourselves.
