The Indian Spices Starter Pack includes the following spices:
Green cardamom pods are quite aromatic and have an unusually complex flavor: pungent, spicy, floral, slightly sweet with hints of citrus. They probably best known for their use in Indian dishes such as tikka masala, chicken biryani, chicken korma, tandoori chicken, garam masalas and other curry blends
Ground turmeric is a colorful and complex spice and is one of the key ingredients in many curries, lending that distinct bright yellow-orange color. Turmeric powder has a flavor that is warm, bitter, and earthy with hints of citrus and ginger.
Ground cumin brings an earthy, slightly bitter flavor to some of our favorite blended seasonings — from curry powders and garam masala, to chili powders, and taco seasoning. It is one of the most consumed spices in the world, right after chiles and black pepper.
Ground coriander has a warm, nutty flavor with mild spice and hints of citrus. It's a key ingredient in garam masala and other curry blends. It's also used in making Middle Eastern shawarma and Israeli falafel.
