Spice Essentials for Indian Classics

It’s no wonder Indian cuisine has become a staple in the weekly meal routine of families the whole world over. Most Indian dishes are fun to make, allow for an array of ingredients and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans alike. But what gives Indian cuisine its unique flavor? Well that would have to be the spices, and although there are a plethora of spices that find their way into Indian dishes, here are a few of essentials you don’t want to run out of if you’re a fan of Indian cuisine.

Coriander: Also known as cilantro, coriander comes in leaf or seed form and adds a refreshing, lemony zest to dishes, as seen in this recipe for Taj Mahal Rice Pilaf.

Turmeric: With its vibrant yellow color, turmeric is a staple of most Indian recipes and brings a strong and aromatic zing to any dish it’s used in. Why not treat your tastebuds to this Spicy Indian Shrimp recipe and see.
