B.I.R Curry Powder

BIR Curry Powder

B.I.R (British Indian Restaurant) Curry Powder, Masala or Mix powder are all terms which come up when discussing the cooking techniques for curry from British restaurants and takeaways.

Most curry houses will use a basic curry powder or masala, often referred to as Madras curry powder plus a special, secret spice blend know as ‘mix powder’.

The reason for this is convenience. When making large amounts of dishes, using individual whole and ground spices in each dish, as traditional recipes do, when making 300+ covers a night would be impossible to do consistently.

So Why Use A Curry Mix At Home?

If you want to recreate the flavours of your favourite Indian Takeaway at home then using a pre-made B.I.R curry powder is one way of doing that. It’s also convenient plus you may not have time to make your own curry powders or you find getting all the right ingredients to much trouble.

Of course you can make your own. There are plenty of recipes on how to do that in books and on the internet.

‘Ome Made B.I.R Curry Masala

If you don’t want to make your own curry powders or you want something convenient for when you run out of your own, we have some thing that is perfect!

B.I.R Curry Masala

Our B.I.R Curry Masala is based on a Madras type curry powder but with some of the spices that go in to a restaurants special mix powder added. We literally went through 100s of recipes to find a happy medium of spices that gave consistent results that we tested with great results at home.

‘Ome Made B.I.R Curry Masala has a mild, balanced flavour which enables the flavour of your added ingredients shine through.

B.I.R Curry Masala can be used in any recipe that requires curry powder. Or if a curry recipe specifies individual spices B.I.R Curry Masala can be used in their place. You can also use our masala for B.I.R recipes that specify a curry powder and mix powder, just replace the quantities with our B.I.R Curry Masala.

BBQ Rubs & Seasonings are available to buy from the ‘Ome Made Online Store!

Summer is almost upon us, hopefully bringing some fine BBQ weather.

At ‘Ome Made we have a selection of BBQ Rubs & Seasonings to suit all tastes. Perfect for all the grill addicts out there!

BBQ Rubs & Seasonings are a vital part of the outdoor, summer cooking season. If it’s perfect pulled pork you’re after or you just want to season some steaks or chicken ‘Ome Made BBQ Rub-a-Dub-Rub is an American style dry rub perfect for rubbing in to meat before it is simply grilled or smoked low ‘n’ slow.

American Style BBQ Rubs

As well as our traditional BBQ rub we now have more American style seasonings.

For something different on a low and slow brisket why not try our Wake Up & Smell The Coffee Rub-a-Dub-Rub? A blend of spices, sugar and coffee. It may sound weird but it gives a lovely deep, savoury flavour with a touch of sweetness. It’s not just for brisket though it works on anything you want to grill too!

We have our Golden Green Rub-a-Dub-Rub which is a blend of yellow mustard, dill and other herbs and spices. This is great rubbed straight in to pork or it can be made in to a paste to smother pork shoulder or brisket so that your chosen coating will stick to the meat while being cooked, giving you two layers of flavour!

If you’re after simpler flavours we have Man! Fire! Rub-a-Dub-Rub. A combination of Salt, garlic, onion, spices and herbs. Great for bringing out the flavours of low and slow cooked meats but equally suitable for just chucking over something on the grill!

For something a little more spicy ‘Ome Made Fuego Furioso Rub-a-Dub-Rub (furious fire!) is great for sprinkling on to your food before it’s barbecued or adding to other rubs to give a little more Oomph! Its a combination of different dried chilli peppers, salt and pepper that will really liven up your BBQ!

If you want something that isn’t so spicy we do a range of Rub-a-Dub-Rubs which are more traditional and great used as BBQ Rubs, we have;

Pork – Perfect for joints, steaks or burgers.

Chicken – Great for seasoning thighs, whole or spatchcocked birds.

Beef – For seasoning burgers, steaks or if you want a simple flavoured piece of brisket.

Lamb – Use to season lamb burgers, steaks or a whole shoulder or leg done low ‘n’ slow

‘Ome Made do a range of rubs which take influence from around the world…

Portuguese Rub-a-Dub-Rub is based on the classic flavours of Portuguese Piri Piri. We love this rubbed on to a small whole or spatchcocked chicken before cooking indirect on the barbecue.

Portuguese Chicken

Moroccan Rub-a-Dub-Rub takes all the earthy, warming flavours of North Africa and goes brilliantly with lamb. Try rubbing in to a whole leg with a little garlic, lemon juice and olive oil before cooking indirect on the barbecue… a real treat! It also makes agreat BBQ rub for chicken.

Moroccan Slow Roast Lamb

We also have Jerk Rub-a-Dub-Rub and Cajun Rub-a-Dub-Rub. Always a favourite to rub in to some chicken and throw on the BBQ for a real crowd pleaser!
