I just made the dhal from the vegetarian box I bought at the craft fair at the Riverside museum last weekend and it was lovely! Think my brother in law will love his box too. Thanks Yasmin. Lucy, Dec 14th 2014
Hi Yasmin, I've just made your Prawn Curry that you mentioned in the Herald Magazine at the weekend. This definitely won't be the last time. It's absolutely superb! Gordon, Dec 8th 2014
Gerry's Kitchen review of a Scotia Spice box
Food blogger Gerry Haughian tested one of our boxes in his own kitchen and was delighted with the results: "last night's dinner was a delicious chicken curry made using the ingredients and recipe card from my Scotia Spice box. Really easy to follow recipe cards and super tasty." Read his full review here and Yasmin's answers to his regular 5 questions feature. Thanks Gerry. Dec 4th - 7th 2014
Thanks from Iain
Having bought one of your packs at the Glasgow food festival (I was fennel tea man just like you haha) and being a complete novice to indian cooking, I tried first your spice tasting guide which explained a lot to me and allowed me to see which flavours I enjoy and how they interact in final dishes.
I then prepared a full banquet from your menus and found them both exciting and easy to follow and cook with spectacular results the curry was just superb and enjoyed by all, and the dhal was a great way to get kids to eat pulses (although I did cut down the chilli quantity).
The mint chutney was a great winner as I enjoyed the freshness of it although some found it a bit hothowever when I told them to take a bit of it with some curry or dhal and some cucumber raita on same fork they were all in agreement the flavours just explode in your mouth, each giving a little extra to the experience.
I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for expanding my cooking expertise and making it so simple to follow. Iain, Nov 12th 2014
A new fan!
We bought the chicken box. We used the chicken box. It was fabulous!!! You have opened my taste buds to a new cuisine filled with flavour but not heat for that I thank you..sincerely. Pamela, Oct 23rd 2014
Scotia Spice In Switzerland!
“Having used the Scotia Spice recipes and enjoyed mouth watering meals, I thought the new Guide to Punjabi Cooking would make a lovely hostess gift when we visited family in Switzerland. Our grandson’s Mum, Silvia, just loves to cook and she was thrilled with her gift. She will send photos when she cooks her first Punjabi banquet in the Bernese Oberland." Dorothy, Oct 21st 2014
Brilliant! We all loved the tandoori chicken, raita, and the kids even ate lentils. Thanks Scotia Spice! Lisa, Oct 18th 2014
Dinner is served!
Dinner made and enjoyed by Pauline using Yasmin's recipes. Carrot and cumin curry, whole masoor Dahl (slightly overlooked as I left the gas on by mistake!) and my favourite - mint and coriander chutney, all served with rice, yoghurt and a cool beer. Not bad for a Wednesday evening - Delish!
