A savory, bright blend that adds outstanding flavor to any dish. It's earthy and rustic, similar to a rub but with a mild curry-like quality. Notes of our signature Afghan saffron add a unique twist to this traditional curry flavor.
The rustic and bright flavors in this unique curry braise work especially well to balance other robust flavors such as red meat, white fish, beans and grains. Add it to your soups and stews, use as a dry rub on lamb chops or beef kebabs, or season your grains as they cook for a rich depth of flavor.

We had shipping difficulties as we did not include the Apartment number in our order. When I discovered this, the folks at Rum immediately made the correction and shipped out a replacement bottle of the spice to my granddaughter who lives several thousands of miles away from us. She received it within two days and used it that evening. She loves it and is going to be placing her own orders now.
I have used this mix with chicken, pork, beef, and vegetables and it's great! It's fragrant and savory without heat making it a great mix to pair with just about anything. It's one of those mixes that tastes even better than it smells.
I received your Rumi Saffron Threads as a Christmas gift … saw a recipe in your information card & placed my 1st order withy you … for the Afghan Curry Braise spice. I sent you an email on your website but still have not received a Reply from you.

Please reply to my concern!
The Afghan Curry Braise and the other spices that I ordered were attractively and securely packaged, and they crossed the country safely to Seattle. Now that I have had a chance to try them, I think that the spice blends are outstanding.
