Kashmiri chilli powder
Milder than other, more commonly used, chilli powders, this traditional Indian spice adds a smoky heat to dishes.
Made from dried and powdered green mango, it adds a lick of acidity to a curry. Use an extra squeeze of lemon juice if you can’t get hold of any.
This spice blend varies across regions, but it’s usually a blend of cloves, peppercorns, cinnamon, cardamom, bay leaf, mace and cumin.
