The Powered by Mom Team Shares a Review on the Kitchen Curry Master
This review was brought to you by our team member Katrina! Read about Katrina on our About Page.
I was thinking about the different types of food we cook in the house and well I couldn’t come up with many. I cook a lot of Mexican style dishes, mainly because that’s what I know how to do. Otherwise it’s very very American style. If we want something different, we usually order take out or we go to the restaurant. Nothing is wrong with that, I just wish we did more at home. I was recently given the opportunity to try the Kitchen Curry Master collection. I have never really cooked Indian food, so I thought it would be a fun thing to try.
My lack of knowledge showed when I received the Kitchen Curry Master. I had only used a few of those spices before. With that said, I was excited to try it out. Included in the box is a cooking guide and also a container to hold all the different spices. Each spice has it’s own little container that you can store it in. Kitchen Curry Master pre measured the bags, so it all fits into the little container. Since I have never worked with some of the spices, I wouldn’t remember what they were after taken out of the bag. So I used my label maker to make a label and place on the side of each container. This will just help me later on. I’m sure most people wouldn’t need it, but I do. Plus it gave me an excuse to use my label maker again so that was fun.
The spices included in the kit:
- Garam Masala – 3 oz
- Chili Powder – 3 oz
- Turmeric Powder – 3 oz
- 2 bags Ground Cumin & Coriander -3 oz
- Fenugreek Seeds – 5 oz
- Mustard Seeds – 5 oz
- Cumin Seeds – 3 oz
- Mixed Spices – 5 oz (Cinnamon Sticks, Cloves, Star Anise, Peppercorns and Green Cardamom)
I was so glad that the they included a cooking guide or I would have been lost and searching pinterest looking for something that looked easy for me to make (not easy to find by the way). After looking through the amazing looking food, I decided on something simple to start out with, and something I thought my kids would like. So I decided on Kebabs. Now I do want to state, that Kitchen Curry Master says ground beef or lamb. However, I did have either, but did have some cut up beef, so I used that instead. I found that the recipe was very easy to follow. Do keep in mind that a lot of the recipes do call for you to marinate for at least 8 hours and some more. So make sure that you have time to prepare.
I have to say, the spices and everything smelled amazing! We boiled our kebabs and I think they turned out perfect. Fallon didn’t really like them, as they were just a little too spicy for her, but she is only 2 so that could be it. Mya really surprised me when she wanted more. I think it is safe to say that we will be making this again. Next time I do want to try it with the ground beef. I know we will be trying more recipes as well from the book especially the Potato Curry. It just looks so good.
I love that you can find the recipes on their site as well as in the book from the kit. If you run out of the spices, you can buy refills of the whole set or each spice by itself from their online store. Prices are really good at $3.99 each or $29.99 for the spice set. The Master Set is $49.99 and comes with the containers, spices and the cooking guide. This would make for a really good gift for someone learning to cook, or even someone who loves to. It’s a great addition to any kitchen.
