Maharajah Curry Powder is a superior grade curry powder and our version is as good as any. Curry aficionados consider this style to be the best type of curry powder with its gorgeous, full-bodied taste where just a little goes a long way. 

Maharajah Curry Powder is typically used to flavor sauces, soups, stews, marinades, meat, and vegetables. This premier Maharajah Style Curry Powder is earthy, slightly floral, sweet, and spicy with citrusy notes, It is not considered a hot curry powder and is ideal for adding magnificent color and unmatched flavor to seafood and chicken curries.

As a rule of thumb, you'll get the optimum flavor from curry powder by frying it for 30 seconds or so in oil or butter (ghee is traditional in India). For the most "balanced" flavor, we recommend adding it twice – ½ the amount should be added to the oil when your aromatics are just about done, and before you are going to add the bulk liquids; and the remaining ½ should be bloomed in oil and then added about five minutes before removing the dish from the heat.

So how much Maharajah Curry Powder should you use? We always recommend using a little bit less as you can always add more but cannot ever take any away. One tablespoon is a good starting point. Remember ½ to start and the second half towards the end. Taste during the cooking process at least once and you can add more at that time if you feel the dish needs it.

There are several benefits to using curry powders. One is saving the need to buy numerous individual spices that may or may not be used often and the other is that you get a nice harmonious balance of flavors without having to recreate the wheel from scratch.
