Curry powder is a spice blend based on South Asian cuisine. While it is often thought of as being invented by the British after spending time in India the base ingredients of garlic, ginger and turmeric were first used in dishes in India almost 4,000 years before the Brits “colonized” India. Now there are an almost infinite variety of curry powders available and they are certainly not all created equal. Our Maharajah Curry Powder is our superior grade curry powder and many of our customers consider this to be the best curry powder with its gorgeous, full-bodied taste where just a little goes a long way.

It is not considered a hot curry powder and is ideal for adding magnificent color and unmatched flavor to seafood and chicken curries.The brilliant reddish hue is from the most exclusive of all spices – Saffron.
There are several benefits to using curry powders. One is saving the need to buy numerous individual spices that may or may not be used often and the other is that you get a nice harmonious balance of flavors without having to recreate the wheel from scratch
