What is Afghan Curry Braise?

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.

How to use it

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.

Amazingly fragrant savory spice blend great for curries

Savory, complex, potent, and awesome smelling spice blend. Very versatile, you could use this in many different types of dishes. Packaging could be improved, the cork top tends to leak a little spice during shipping and isn't very secure.

Original Afghan Spice versis Afghan Curry Braise

The Curry Braise has the same mix of spices (I think) but is much finer in texture which makes it hard to shake on vegetables, eggs, etc. Therefore, I am reluctant to use it along with the salt & pepper on the table as I could with the original Afghan Spice.
