Perfectly frosted berries โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ“
.
Ever wondered how instafoodies & food bloggers get the perfect frosted berry look? It's actually simple. Follow these steps and you'll have the perfect frosted berry for your next shot ๐Ÿ“ธ
1. freeze fresh berries in a small plastic bag or the plastic tray they come in. **Don't wash them before putting in the freezer**
2. Arrange your bowl and props just the way you want and practice the shot with your camera.
3. Once you're ready, pull the berries from the freezer. Using tongs or a tweezer (no warm fingers!), gently place the berries where you want them in your photo.
4. Berries will reach maximum frost in about 4-7 mins after coming out of the freezer depending on the ambient humidity and temp.
5. Take a couple shots each minute until you get the look you want.

Ever been to an Indian restaurant buffet? If so, you probably couldn't help but notice the fiery red-colored chicken in the lineup ๐Ÿ”ฅ That scarlet-hued delicacy is Tandoori Chicken, an Indian BBQ classic ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ The Tandoor is a cylindrical clay oven traditionally used for home-grilling meats that dates back to 3000 BC! This month our subscribers get to make a fast Tandoori-style marinade for chicken skewers using our Tandoori BBQ spice blend. The key to max flavor is pairing the right combination of spices (which we supply) with a proper yogurt-based marinade, along with fresh ginger and garlic. Yogurt is a natural meat tenderizer and will help the spices and aromatics penetrate deep into the meat for juicy flavor in each bite. Instead of red-food coloring, we use all natural beet root powder to add the red hue ๐Ÿ‘† Click the link in our bio to learn more about our recent box of Indian spices and recipes

End of summer bounty ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ‘ Transformed our lovely fruit platter of fresh nectarines, berries, oranges, grapes, and mint into a sweet-sour-savory flavor explosion by dusting it with our Indian chaat masala spice blend. In India, โ€˜Chaatโ€™ is a word that describes a set of savory-spiced snacks. Similar to the idea of Spanish Tapas, Chaats represent a category of food that can be enjoyed as a quick bite, a standalone meal, or as a series of small plates cobbled together for a full meal. Often a combination of crunchy fried legumes like chickpeas, vegetables, potatoes, sweet potatoes, but fresh fruit also makes the perfect chaat when dusted with our magical, savory-sour flavor-bomb spice called chaat masala ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ’ฆ Find out more about our our fruit chaat recipe and chaat masala by clicking the link in our bio ๐Ÿ‘†

Celebrate the start of fall by grilling some sweet corn ๐ŸŒฝ This month, our subscribers get to turn their simple bbq side into an extraordinary fusion dish by dusting it with our Indian chaat masala spice blend. In India, โ€˜Chaatโ€™ is a word that describes a set of savory-spiced snacks that are ubiquitous throughout the country from street carts to restaurants to the home dinner table. Chaats represent a category of food that can be enjoyed as a quick bite, a standalone meal, or as a series of small plates cobbled together for a full meal. Similar to the idea of Spanish Tapas, there is a wide variety of recipes & ingredients that can be made into chaats. Theyโ€™re often a combination of crunchy fried legumes like chickpeas, vegetables, potatoes, sweet potatoes, or a mashup of fresh fruit and vegetables. The common thread is that they're all dusted with a magical, savory-salty-sour flavor-bomb spice called chaat masala ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ’ฆ Find out more about our spices and recipes this month by clicking the link in our bio ๐Ÿ‘†

The Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab in northern India is more than a beautiful, holy destination for Sikhs. It's a significant site in the struggle for Indian independence from the UK, where hundreds of unarmed demonstrators were massacred by British troops in 1919. The Punjab region is also known for a rich culinary tradition and this temple plays an outsized role. Today, the temple is also the largest free kitchen on the planet, serving over 100,000 volunteer-driven 3-course meals a day to guests regardless of caste, creed, or wealth. 300,000 roti (flatbread), 1.5 tonnes of dal (lentil soup), 500kg of ghee (clarified butter), and 1200kg of rice are consumed daily. #inspiredlife

While there are endless varieties of curry dishes, with different combinations of spices and core ingredients, Aloo Gobi (Cauliflower & Potatoes) is an easy vegetable curry to have in your cooking repertoire. This recipe showcases our freshly-ground Madras Hot Curry powder. Originally from the far northern Punjab region of India, this dish has become a standard on Indian menus across the world. Satisfying enough to be a one-pot meal and easy to customize, you can add many ingredients you have on hand from green peas to squash to shredded chicken (for our meat-loving friends).

For your next meatless Monday, make this delightful Turkish-style stuffed eggplant ๐Ÿ† Based on an authentic dish called Imam Bayildi (or 'Fainting Imam'). Legend has it that this dish is so named after being served to a 17th Century Imam (Ottoman religious leader) who fainted with pleasure after eating the smoky eggplants stuffed with dried fruit and sliced nuts and topped with minced lamb. You can easily customize to your liking: add in ground meats for a heavier meal, or stuff with diced portobello and zucchini for heartier vegetarian take. This recipe delivers using our Turkish Herb spice blend ๐ŸŒฑ packed with fresh dried herbs like dill, mint and oregano, spiked with Aleppo Chili flakes ๐Ÿ”ฅ for a fruity-peppery note, and rounded by cumin and fennel seed for a sweet nutty finish. ๐Ÿ‘† Click the link in our bio to all of our recipes and spice blends in our August spice box

In a world full of chaos and divisive politics, sometimes its easy to forget that all humans eat 3 meals a day and that we share far more in common than we are different. This dreamy Turkish coffee spread has an even better view of the UNESCO world heritage site at Gรถreme, full of Byzantine era churches and dwellings carved into the unique chimney rocks. As we explore a sample of Turkish cuisine at home, we can think about the exotic places that inspire our food and remember that while the world is big, the distance between us is not so vast. ๐Ÿ“ธ: @tiebowtie
