New year resolution decided to cook more from.scratch...we love curries and wouldnt mind getting a few kits rather than jars and jars of spices. Like these food dinner boxes...are there any curry or spice kits about. Anyone recommend any?

I got the ‘family favourites’ from The Spicery for DH for Father’s Day. He loved it! So did the rest of the family!

Would also recommend The Spicery. We had a 6 month subscription as a Christmas present a couple of years ago and they come in a letter box sized box and there is a good choice of kits.

Ah ok I'll have a look at them.
Which ones are your favourites?

Don't know about subscriptions sorry, but the Spice Tailor kits (from the supermarket) are really, really nice. We have tried almost every one and they were all lovely. Had a (cheaper) Patak's one the other day and it was nowhere near as good.

I've had some of the Boom Kitchen curry kits and loved them

DS has one from Boom Kitchen which he thinks is good.

Another vote for Spice Tailor! Fantastic for very little effort.

Simply cook have some good ones, there's a free box referral on the relevant page of Mumsnet

I'm a huge fan of Curry Frenzy kits, it's how I started cooking without the jars and I find them excellent value compared to little kits that make one curry as we usually get about 3 meals per bag. You get a bag with all the spices premixed and a little list of fresh ingredients and a recipe. I've also tried Tyga, Spice Tailor and much prefer curry frenzy.

I get the Meat Free Magic box every month from The Spicery - highly recommend

I get the Indian takeaway favourites box each month from the Spicery. The curries have been very good, some are exceptional. The box makes a feast (curry and 3 sides) and usually takes around 2 hours, most of which is hands on time so you need to enjoy the cooking process as well as the eating.

Try Aly at Nature's Kitchen. They are a small family business and hand grind their spices in small batches so they are lovely and fresh. Aly is a fabulous character and I'm very lucky that she is local to me. They do a good range of herbs and spices.

Some lovely sugestions thank you will check them out. We are more the usual curries korma, jalfrezi, bhuna etc. so although I fancy being abit more adventurous Im abit worried if I order some and dont like them then Ive wasted my money!

I'm not sure if they do subscriptions as such, but Rafi's Spice Box is fab. One of their shops is local to me - highly recommended.

I've always been wary of these but I found these randomly in an Asian food shop - and I was blown away at how flavoursome it was. Bought all the different mixes and you only need 3 ingredients. Very quick and easy and tasty amazing.

Shorthairlady Fri 08-Jan-21 23:07:06

That would be taste amazing grin

I think The Spicery looks great think that's the one Im favoured to.

Any others I could look at?
