This lecture shows use how to make fresh tamarind juice at home.

Tamarind is a tropical fruit that grows as a pod on the tamarind tree. The pod or fruit is shaped like a bean and contains a pulp with lots of seeds. This pulp is usually mashed with water to create “juice” that is extensively used in many cuisines around the world for its souring properties; it is also used for medicinal properties and, believe it or not, as a polishing agent!

Some of the world's most sought after recipes rely on this amazing ingredient, like Thai Tom Yum Soup, and it is also an important ingredient in Worcestershire Sauce.

How to make Panch Phoron at home.

Panch Phoron or Bengali Five Spice is a natural flavour enhancer used in much the same way as garam masala is, this mix is quite often quickly fried in hot oil/ghee and poured over the finished dish to deepen the flavour. This method is called tempering or tarka.

How to make Garam Masala at home.

Garam Masala, that essential Indian spice mix is much, much easier to make at home than you think.

Garam – Warm or Hot

Masala – Spice Mix

So, garam masala is a warming (not spicy) spice mix and can be used as a cooking ingredient, like a curry powder and also and more importantly, to add a final flourish to your finished dish, just before or after turning the heat off.

Each cook will have a different recipe for his or her garam masala, so you see, the advantage of making your own is not only will you be getting a potent, fresh blend but you'll also be getting one tailored to your taste!

How to make your own Curry Powder at home.

You don't particularly need curry powders in the kitchen, as long as you have cumin, coriander, et al., but they do come in very handy. It doesn't take much to make curry powders from scratch but you do need a good spice or coffee mill to achieve a fine grind. If you feel like cheating, go ahead and buy the ready-made individual ground spices and mix them up according to the recipes below.

The recipes here will produce a moderately spiced mix but, bear in mind, what's spicy to one may not be to another! Play around with the amount of chilli/pepper; after all, you can always spice it up later.
