The Gunpowder Marinade has an abundance of Indian spices and flavours:
Dried Red Chilli:
Chillies range in heat from mild to every hot. The heat comes from capsaicin in their seeds and inner white membrane. Dairy helps with mellowing spice.
Known as the "King of Spices" in India, black pepper is the whole dried fruit of an evergreen creeper and delivers a distinctive aroma and flavour.
There are 3 varieties of mustard seed, with the black seeds most commonly used in recipes for their earthy and strong flavours.
Dried Curry Leaves:
Otherwise known as kadi patta, curry leaves are picked from a small, deciduous tree and give an intensely aromatic, spicy aroma with a slight citrus note.
On every street corner from Mumbai to Punjab, you will find an array of bustling food stalls filling the air with wonderful aromas. This is where locals gather to chit, chat and chai! Every region boasts its own specialties with their own unique flavours and textures, so the options are endless.
