Asia: Indian Curry Rub
An aromatic and warming combination of traditional Indian spices inspired by my family’s own recipe. Turmeric and star anise capture all of the classic elements of your favorite yellow curry. Notes of bay leaves, allspice and ginger offer an initial bittersweet heat while lemon and orange peel balance the dish with a cool, citrus essence. As it cooks, the flavor intensifies, stimulating the senses.Whether the spice rub be combined with grape seed oil and rubbed over chicken, used as a seasoning with grains and vegetables, or added to a stew for a traditional Asian curry dish, it will be love at first bite.
