    • Chiman’s spice mixes have a long best before time, however are safe to use after that time. They simply lose some flavour.
    • If you are cooking for less than 4 people you could freeze some of the cooked meal or only use half the packet.
    • If you find the food too spicy or too hot, simply use less than the whole sachet of spices according to taste.
    • If you like more of a chilli kick, add some fresh chopped chilli to the dish or serve in a small bowl so that everyone can have exactly the amount they like.
    • If you find your mouth burning, resist the temptation to drink water. Instead, have a spoonful of yogurt or a lassi drink.
    • We often get asked which oil to use – vegetable oil is the best option as it is light, doesn’t affect the flavour of the spices and it’s healthy too!
    • Best for kids (and adults!) who like a mild curry: Kofta Bhoona (let them roll the balls themselves); Chicken Korma; Chicken Tikka Masala; Cauliflower & Spinach Bhaji
    • An anonymous tip: Try adding a few green peas to the Spicy Chick Peas. It adds colour without upsetting the balance of the dish
