The blending of spices has been a traditional secret transferred from generation to generation. At Spice Merchants, the team (established in Southsea, a seaside resort located in Portsmouth, for many years) has a passion for cooking.  Spices are the soul of Indian food. Simple ingredients come alive with the special use of spices and herbs. There is an art to using Indian spices. Indians spice their dishes in layers harmoniously blending subtle spices with aromatic ones and layering it with herbs, ginger, garlic and lime juice or tamarind.
Indian cuisine is as diverse as its people and geography. Indians did not have written down recipes but were passed on through generations purely by word of mouth.

The classic Indian curries often combine the following main spices: coriander, turmeric, fenugreek, cloves, ginger, red and black pepper as well as other spices. Many of the Indian vegetarian dishes are made with simple bland spices so the flavour of the main ingredient can stay pure and the spices provide a supporting taste. These are the more bland and delicate spices such as fennel, cumin, mustard seeds, coriander powder and turmeric.

A passion evident in the quality and presentation of the authentic recipes they take pleasure in preparing for you and your guests.

The extensive menu offering a wonderful selection of dishes from all the regions of India, gives you unrivalled choice.

The chefs with time honoured skills in presentation create exhilarating flavours that we are confident you will wish to recommend to your friends.
