You probably already know that curries can be used extremely versatile and flexibly in the kitchen. By combining a wide variety of ingredients, they often bring with them such a complex variety of flavors that they come into their own in practically every dish. However, this particular curry blend was developed with a particular focus on vegetarian dishes. Of course, you can also use it for meat dishes - it goes perfectly with chicken, lamb or veal. Nevertheless, we have given it just the right mix of fruity sweetness, strong spice and cheeky spiciness to make every vegetable dish something special. But let's start with the classic: Do you know the authentic Aloo Gobi recipe? This delicious dish of potatoes, cauliflower, chopped tomatoes, ginger and garlic is prepared as a stew like most curries. Potatoes and cauliflower are fried, then deglazed with the tomatoes and finally cooked with ginger, garlic, a pinch of sugar and our Aloo Gobi spice mixture. It is usually served with freshly cooked rice. You can also add a few chickpeas or serve with green onions and lime wedges when serving.
Now that you know the basic recipe for Aloo Gobi, you can certainly imagine how versatile you can use this spice mixture. It goes perfectly with tomato-based sauces, which don't necessarily have to be Indian: Try the delicious mixture in a vegetable bolognese, a sweet and sour vegetable ragout, fruity pepper sauces or chili sin carne. The organic Aloo Gobi tastes just as good in meat dishes and stews such as the Indian lamb curry - Rogan Josh or in dishes that do not have tomato sauce as a base.
Feel free to explore the versatility of this vegetable curry on your own. We assure you that it adapts to any cuisine and also tastes great in Mexican, Asian or Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Just give it a try and you will be rewarded with great taste experiences!
As always, we adhered to our high quality standards with this spice mixture and only sourced cumin, mustard seeds, ginger, coriander seeds, paprika powder, turmeric, sea salt, onions, garlic, chili flakes, tomato flakes, fenugreek and coriander leaves from controlled organic farming. Like all of our spice mixtures, our organic Aloo Gobi is free of flavor enhancers and consists exclusively of natural ingredients.
You should keep this in mind when using Organic Aloo Gobi
Our organic Aloo Gobi spice mixture is best used early in the preparation of your dishes. If you add it to your dishes right from the start, it can optimally develop its full flavors and spread wonderfully throughout the dishes. In addition, it has another valuable property that is particularly appreciated in vegetable dishes: thanks to the high proportion of vegetable flakes made from tomatoes and chili, it helps to naturally thicken the stock of your dishes.
Be careful when frying: If you want to use the spice mixture as a marinade, it is advisable to first mix the powder in a little oil or honey. This prevents the spice from burning and allows its delicious flavors to be optimally absorbed by vegetables, tofu or meat.
What does curry actually mean – and why are there so many different curries?
The origin of the term “curry” remains not fully understood to this day. In the Indian language there is the word "Kari" which means pepper or food seasoned with pepper. Since pepper is a key ingredient in most curry dishes, the term "curry" could possibly be derived from it. On the other hand, the English term “curry” could also be the namesake for the versatile spice mixtures. This term describes a way of preparing dishes in which different ingredients are combined, and therefore refers not only to the spice mixture itself, but also to most curry dishes.
You're probably familiar with Thai green curry, Caribbean coconut curry, Vindaloo curry and many other curry blends. This variety already gives you a good idea of what makes a curry. In fact, curry is not a specific spice mixture, but always a combination of different spices that can consist of up to 30 different ingredients. Due to this versatility, curries and masalas are not only very popular in their country of origin, India, but are now used worldwide.
The recipe for masalas and curries can traditionally vary. In India, each family often has its own recipe that has been passed down through generations. The ingredients are usually roasted individually and then combined into an aromatic spice blend. The ingredients almost always present in the classic mixture include turmeric, coriander, cumin, pepper, paprika or nutmeg, which also gives the curries their characteristic yellow-orange color.
Which curry mixtures are the most popular?
There are actually countless variations of curries and masalas, and their origins undoubtedly lie in Indian cuisine. Spices were one of the earliest trade goods, and a variety of spice mixtures were used to preserve food centuries ago. Different curry mixtures have therefore become established throughout Asia, taking regional ingredients and tastes into account.
In Thailand, green Thai curry, red Thai curry and yellow Thai curry are best known. These curry blends are inspired by Thai cuisine and tropical coastal regions and often contain typical spices such as lemongrass - similar to our organic Aloo Gobi Curry. In Europe, the most famous curry is a classic Indian curry with a high proportion of turmeric, which gives it the bright orange color. Masalas, which are essentially curry mixtures, are also very popular in Europe. Maybe you know Garam Masala or Tikka Masala? The former has a slight sweetness and a slightly “darker” taste compared to Tikka Masala.
What all curry mixtures have in common is that they can be used in a variety of ways - cooking chopped vegetables or meat in coconut milk with a curry or masala mixture is always a pleasure. But you can also use the mixtures to marinate tofu, grilled vegetables or meat. In some cases, like our Aloo Gobi, the mixture is also ideal as a base for noodle or vegetable soups. Or you can season your lentil, bean or sprout stews with the delicious curries and discover new taste experiences again and again!
What is the difference between masala and curry?
In fact, both curry mixes and masala mixes are made up of a variety of different aromatic spices. The main difference is that classic masala spices are often brownish in color and are traditionally added towards the end of the cooking process, while curry blends are often yellowish in color, mainly due to their high turmeric content. The three main ingredients in most curry and masala blends are cumin, coriander and turmeric. This common ground sometimes makes the distinction between curry and masala blurry, and there is no clear, distinct dividing line between them.
