Time of Heat is now starting. In this weather we want something chill & spicy too. All adore hot and spicy food and have yet to eat something too spicy for palate. We have, however, eaten spicy foods that are not enjoyable because the flavors are not balanced; being the spiciest does not make a dish the best.
Spices come in many forms and in varying qualities, so let’s talk about what’s available! Spices can be available in whole (both fresh and dried), ground, paste, extract, oil, and compound forms. All of us mostly use dried whole spices and grind them as needed. NMP Udhyog is best in that. It is best & top class Manufacturer & Supplier of Spices. This type of product is perfect for making spice lollipops! These spices would be the best choice when flavoring fondants, or making cream centers (like a ginger cream chocolate). Companies such as NMP have extracts and compounds from the spice family.
Spices, like perfumes or fine wines, need to be kept in the right environment- usually a cool, dry, and dark environment. Most people buy spices in the grocery store, but unfortunately they are often not the best in quality. Sometimes these spices are blended with other ingredients which can deplete the intensity of flavor. Where you buy spices makes a huge difference. Having traveled all over the world, it’s the closest thing to being in a spice market in India, Sri Lanka, Morocco, or China!
Cinnamon comes from several geographical regions of the world. Ceylon (Sri Lanka) cinnamon is delicate and light-natured, with a note of citrus. Indonesian cinnamon has a stronger flavor than other cinnamons, with a sharp, bitter edge that goes well with coffee; as the flavor most Americans grew up with, it’s often called the “regular” cinnamon. Chinese cinnamon is sweeter than the Indonesian variety, with a mild depth that blends beautifully into other flavors. It’s often the preferred cinnamon for baking. Saigon cinnamon, from Vietnam, is much stronger than the others, with a sweet spicy heat like red-hot candies. Cinnamon is available in ground and bark/stick forms.
SO its not so easy have that products in our home. So NMP Udhyog is now in the market with their best and organic spice products to make your food best and delicious. It is Best Coriander Powder Manufacturer in India.
Allspice s a mixture of spices that is very popular in the UK for hot cross buns at Easter and in fruit cake. It’s bought as a pre-mixed spice, but can be made by combining equal amounts of ground cinnamon, ground cloves, and ground nutmeg.
Over the last few years, there has been a trend of adding peppers to unexpected dishes, especially chocolate-based cookies, desserts, chocolates, and cakes. Peppers come in fresh or dried forms and, just like adding espresso to a chocolate cookie or cake, can really liven up the flavor profile! Use peppers with caution- I have eaten various confections that have way too much added! Remember it’s all about balance!
Pretty excited to give the Indian Spice Cookie a try! I hope that the heat of the summer matches the heat of this spicy post!
