    B.I.R Curry Masala from ‘Ome made is a blend of spices which takes influence from the British Indian Restaurant style of cooking. It can be used to create your favourite Indian Restaurant or takeaway curries at home. Best used with the classic Base Curry Sauce. You can find a Base Sauce Recipe here.

    British Indian Restaurants all have their own special spice mix. This gives a base flavour upon which to add other ingredients to build the flavour. ‘Ome Made B.I.R Curry Masala is a mix of spices which does exactly this and a little bit more. If simply fried along with onions, garlic and ginger and then adding a base sauce you will end up with a very tasty medium curry. Add extra chilli, tomato, lemon juice and a few other things and you will have a Madras.

    It’s not just suitable for Madras though!

    Mild enough to use in a Chicken Tikka Masala, Bhuna or even Korma. With added peppers and onions you have a Karahi. Up the heat and add some fresh chillies for a Jalfrezi. If you like it really hot you could mix some B.I.R Masala with our The Devils Arse Curry Masala where you’ll be getting on to Vindaloo levels!

    See www.omemade.com/british-indian-restaurant-curry for a selection of recipes where you can use ‘Ome Made Curry Masalas.

    If you’re not a fan of base sauce and like to cook your curries from scratch, this masala will still give you a superior flavour than some of the other brands around. It has such a nice rounded flavour that is so easy to adapt to any recipe.

    ‘Ome Made B.I.R Curry Masala can be used in a lot of  the recipes by You Tubers.

    Simply replace the spices and mix powder with ‘Ome Mades B.I.R Curry Masala. Just add chilli to taste and the finishing spices like Garam Masala and Kasoori Methi or Fenugreek Leaf.

    If a recipe in a book calls for curry powder then this Curry Masala can be used too.

    ‘Ome Made B.I.R Curry Masala can be used to recreate a lot of the popular dishes featured in The Curry Guys books, Misty Ricardos books and videos plus other curry writers and you tubers.

    If you haven’t got the time or equipment to make and grind your own spices then ‘Ome Mades B.I.R Curry Masala is the next best thing. This is exactly what we use to make curries at home along with our other Indian Curry Masalas which can be found here. 

    ‘Ome Mades B.I.R Curry Masala, unlike other brands of curry powder, is very low in salt and has no flour to bulk it out. In short it is just ground spices, herbs and a slight addition of salt.

    If you’re a fan of cooking in a Instapot or other pressure cookers then ‘Ome Mades B.I.R Curry Masala is ideal as it has no flour in it which can cause dishes to burn when using multifunctional cookers.

    If you’re a big fan of all things curry why not join a curry group on Facebook? The Curry Secret & The Art Of British Indian Curry are two that I would recommend and where you can see ‘Ome Made products being used.
