Sri Spice spice up your dish

Spice up your dish with Sri Spice spices and create healthy curries Sri Lanka style.

I was gifted on a complimentary basis two packs of Sri Spice to enjoy at home courtesy of Sri Spice.

Sri Spice

Thea back in 2007 was living and working in Sri Lanka and fell in love with the food within the country. Feeling great eating healthy curries when she returned to Scotland she realised that Sri Lankan food wasn’t as popular here in the UK as Indian food is. This shocked her as she feels that the taste of Sri Lankan food is so much more delicious and healthier.

Spending many years in the kitchen she perfected it in her home by making and hand roasting spices to bring the taste of Sri Lanka to the UK.

Her curry kits are all made with love as she spends hours in the kitchen measuring out the whole spices, drying the leaves and taking the time to roast the spices to perfection.

All her ingredients used are sourced very carefully to be of the highest quality available. Unlike most other spice packs on the market she uses only real Ceylon Cinnamon (not the cheaper cassia bark). She also included a pack of whole spices and leaves which flavour the oil at the start of cooking and gives a real depth of flavour to any dish. Click here to read how they are made.

Included in the Spice Kits are roasted and unroasted curry powders, dried leaves and whole spices. They even have an optional extra chilli in the bag for those who like your dishes that little hotter. Plus all the recipes provided on the packs are also unique and created with healthy eating in mind.

The Spice Kits are suitable for vegans, veggies and meat eaters and they are incredibly versatile.

Taste of Sri Spice

Never having Sri Lankan food before I was excited in getting cooking with Thea Sri Spice kit.

Each pack contains curry powders and spices which have all been carefully slow-roasted and blended by hand which gives them that wonderful fresh taste of Sri Lanka.

I was gifted a mains pack and side dish pack. Upon opening each of the foil lined packs which keeps the spice blends fresh within the packaging, I was instantly hit the the aromas of freshness and spice.

For my mains I was give Sri Spice Yummy Galle Curry to enjoy.

Yummy Galle Curry is named after the beautiful city of Galle. This Sri Spice kit is a special blend which uses both dark-roasted and unroasted curry powders to create a robust, vibrant, mild dish.

Serves 4
Ingredients required:
750g beef/chicken/king prawns or vegetables
1 lime
2 large onions
150g frozen peas
4 cloves of garlic
30g/1oz root ginger
2tbs coconut / rapeseed oil
200ml coconut milk

I decided to use chicken which I marinated within the Yummy Galle Curry powder (pack 1) and lime juice for 20 minutes.

Whilst marinading I measured all the other ingredients to make the dish with and chopped up any that required chopping.

Once my chicken had marinated I heated up the oil in a pan over a medium heat and added the whole spices and leaves (pack 2) and fried for 2 minutes.

Then I added my chopped onions and stir fried until soft before adding my grated fresh ginger and garlic and cooking for a further 2 mins. Then it was onto adding my marinated chicken which I browned off before adding water, coconut milk, my chopped tomatoes and frozen beans. Then it was on with a cover as I had no pot lid for my frying pan I used foil and gently cooked on a medium heat until heated through and cooked.

This dish took around 45 minutes to make (15 mins prep and 35 mins cooking time).

Once done it just did not look amazing but also tasted amazing, very vibrant and sweet from the tomatoes and coconut milk and had a nice delicate mild spice to it which I was pleased with as I am not one for hot spicy dishes. However you can add extra spice to the dish with the added chillies from the chilli pack which is provided.

The curry kit includes: unroasted Curry Powder (Coriander Seeds, Cumin Seeds, Fennel Seeds, Ceylon Cinnamon Stick, Cloves, Green Cardamom, Black Peppercorns), Sri Spice Roasted Curry Powder, Paprika, Chilli Powder, Turmeric Powder, Lemongrass Powder, Fenugreek Seeds, Ceylon Cinnamon Stick, Curry Leaves, Pandan Leaves

For my side dish which works well with Yummy Galle Curry I was given a pack of Sri Spice Coconut Greens.

Coconut Greens is ideal for those who love greens with spices and toasted coconut. A simple and tasty alternate to eat greens.

Serves 4
Ingredients required:
200g/61⁄2oz leafy greens
2tbs coconut / rapeseed oil
1 medium onion
1 lime

Heating the spice pack (pack 1) after a few minutes I added the chopped onions and fried for a few minutes before adding the blitzed leafy greens followed on by the the other pack (pack 2) and heated for 3 minutes.

This dish took around 15 minutes in all to make from preparation to cooking.

It looked beautiful with the greenish and yellow that popped through. It was a tasty green side which provided many vitamins. Very pleasing.

The curry kit includes: Paprika Powder, Turmeric Powder, Black Mustard Seeds, Chilli Flakes, Fenugreek, Curry Leaves, Pandan Leaves

Sri Spice

Unlike other spice kits I have purchased in the past, I felt that the Sri Spice Kits by Thea were certainly more fresh and aromatic, even the colour of the spices were more punchier.

The flavour that each provided to the dishes were delightful and not too over powering but if you do prefer your dishes with that extra kick then you can always add the extra chilli pack which comes provided in the kits.

So if you are looking for freshness and quality taste I highly recommend.
