La Kama$10.25 – $27.70
La Kama meaning “the bed” in Darija is the most common spice blend used in Moroccan cooking. Credited by some as originating in Tangiers, its aromatic sweet and warming flavor can be found in a multitude of dishes throughout the Barbary Coast and Middle East.
Use as a dry rub; in marinades, curries, and soups; or with lentils, couscous, rice or other grains.
Hand blended in small batches with: turmeric, ginger, white pepper, cinnamon, pepper, nutmeg, and allspice.
This powdered gum resin is used in Indian cooking. It has a foul smell, but when cooked it takes on an onion/garlic/leek flavor. Known as food of the Gods, it is also said to aid with digestion.
Asafoetida (Hing) is often used as an onion/garlic substitute in Indian dishes. Use sparingly–a little goes a long way. This blend uses Fenugreek as a processing agent rather than the more commonly found wheat.
Rajkot Chaat$10.50 – $28.35
Bright aromatic flavors of Indian Chaat marry the smoky heat of Southwest chiles. Intended for veggies, but also makes a great dry rub.
Hand blended in small batches with: cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, Persian lime and Chiles.
Part of the ginger family, Cardamom means grains of paradise. Historically, Cardamom has been used to flavor foods, as an ingredient in perfumes, and even for medicinal purposes.
Known for its sweet and spicy taste, Cardamom seed is used equally in sweet dishes such as breads and cakes and in savory dishes such as meats and curries. Use in baked goods, sprinkle on oatmeal, ice cream, or iced melon, and add to curry. Cardamom has a sharp aroma and distinctive flavor that can be compared to anise or eucalyptus. For a Middle Eastern treat, sprinkle in your coffee.
