  • About Tandoori Masala Spice Mix

    The term "Tandoori" refers to the method of cooking in a tandoor oven, while "Masala" translates to a blend of spices.
    Tandoori Masala is a vibrant and aromatic spice blend that captures the essence of traditional North Indian and Punjabi cuisine. Originating from the region where the iconic tandoor clay oven was birthed, this spice mix is the heart and soul of many dishes that are cooked in this clay oven, giving them a distinct smoky flavor and a rich, reddish hue.

    Traditionally, Tandoori Masala is combined with yogurt to create a marinade for meats, poultry, fish, and even vegetables. The acid in the yogurt tenderizes the meat while the spices penetrate deeply, ensuring every bite is flavorful.

    Tandoori Masala is a harmonious blend of spices including Kashmiri red chili for color and mild heat, and this blend incorporates the incomparable Rumi wild cumin and coriander for a unique and delicious blend.

  • Tips & usage

    Tandoori Masala spice mix is commonly used as an all-in-one, flavor-packed seasoning on bone-in chicken pieces that are grilled or oven-roasted until golden brown and crispy. But, this versatile spice mix also brings unrivaled flavor to fresh fish, lamb, or roasted vegetable dishes.

Social Impact and Women's Empowerment

Our mission extends beyond spices. Every purchase from Rumi Spice plays a vital role in empowering Afghan farmers, fostering sustainable agricultural practices, and supporting the economic growth of local communities. We take pride in creating opportunities and championing the roles of these individuals in their communities.

Central to our ethos is the empowerment of Afghan women. We employ them in various roles, from harvesting to processing various spices. This initiative provides them with direct wages and opportunities, fostering their economic independence and highlighting their invaluable contributions to both Rumi Spice and their communities.

Our Mission

The Best Spices are from Afghanistan

Afghanistan's diverse landscape, from the soaring Hindu Kush mountains to the arid plains surrounding Herat, provides an ideal environment for cultivating some of the world's most exquisite spices. This land, nurtured by hot, dry winds and a semi-arid climate, yields unparalleled saffron, renowned globally for its high crocin content, vibrant color, and intense flavor. Beyond saffron, Afghanistan's wild foraged spices, including rare varieties like wild black cumin, are a testament to the purity and richness of the land.

At Rumi Spice, we cherish this connection to Afghanistan, not only for the exceptional quality of its spices but also for the opportunity it presents to empower local communities, preserve traditional practices, and foster sustainable economic growth.
