Recipe help: Farmers market spices

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bought a few spice packets at our farmers market yesterday, but there are two of them I'm not sure what to make/put them on.


Dry Garlic Chutney:
Garlic, Corn Oil, Spices, Salt, Lemon Juice, Sesame Seeds, Coconut

Garam Masala:
Coriander, Chili, Cumin, Clove, Amchur, Salt, Anise, Fennel, Black Pepper, Mace, Bay Leaves, Clove Leaves


I figured I would consult the brains of some other cooks. I'm trying to branch out from my usual flavors (what's picked from my herb garden) but now I just don't know what to make. I'm wide open for suggestions as far as meats, vegetables, whatever. So....suggestions anybody?

Garam Masala is used in Indian dishes. You can add this to hot or mild curry powder if you like.

Try this with chicken or pork chops before cooking or try it with eggs or vegetables.

The Dry garlic one I would try with chicken or shrimp.

I do have pork chops in the freezer.

The Garam Masala doesnt take much, especially because of the clove flavor. It goes well in tomato based curries. (I add a pinch to my Aloo Gobi) I cant really imagine it on pork chops but if you try it let me know, sounds interesting!

Whiteforest - where did you go? Rafals? If so.. isn't that a cool place?

Garam Masala - yes - Indian food. Tomato curries as someone else said. Good with chicken or lamb. Or veggies.

The dry chutney sounds like it would be good on shrimp. I think of chutney as a vinegar and fruit based condiment or relish ... also Indian... goes with lamb and poultry. You could mix it with mango or peach preserves, tamarind and orange juice and spread on chicken or pork and bake it. Google chutney to get some ideas.

That is a cool place, but these were from a vendor in shed 2. He probably had 100 different spice and herb mixes.
