Just as Turkey abounds in gorgeous, solid and beautifully made spice grinders, so India produces thousands of versions of airtight, stainless steel tins (masala dabba) for storing spices (as seen on SBS’s Madhur Jaffrey’s Curry Nation). Attractive, practical and affordable as they are by themselves, I have gone a step further and filled them with various spice collections, beginning, of course with Indian spices.
Of course there are far too many Indian spices to fit into one tin, so I have chosen a selection of seven that I think will appeal to most of my customers. This selection will be available at the market but if you come and shop at my Pantry Shop, you can choose the seven spices you desire and I will fill the tubs for you, when you buy one of the spice storage tins.
This Spice Tin (empty or full) can be obtained from the Cygnet Market or at the Garden Shed and Pantry.
