Curious About Some of Our Flavourings?
Fenugreek
An ancient spice, the leaves of which are eaten as a popular vegetable all over India. One of the most powerful Indian spices.
Star Anise
The fruit of a tree of the magnolia family, Star Anise is similar in flavour to aniseed, but has a more pronounced aromatic sweet taste.
Tamarind
The Tamarind tree is an evergreen and its pods are sometimes called the "Indian date." The pulp from the pods is used as a flavouring for its sweet, sour, fruity aroma and taste. At Darbar, we use it in our onion bhaji and our samosas.
Ghee
The purest form of butter-fat, Ghee is made by converting full cream milk into yogurt and then churning this to separate the solid butter from the liquid buttermilk. The butter is then melted to separate the sediment from the clear, golden Ghee.
Kalonji or Nigella
Kalonji is the dried seed-like fruit of a small herb that grows in the Middle East, Southern Europe, and throughout India. It has a faint nutty, bitter taste and goes beautifully with fish, in naan bread and in salads.
TURMERIC
A member of the ginger family, turmeric grows best in a tropical climate. Turmeric, the spice is teh underground root or rhizome of the plant. One of the most traditional and versatile of spices used in Indian cooking, tumeric is the very heart and soul of any Indian curry.
