About our Bahaar Recipe Spicekits

Our mission at Bahaar Kitchen is to give you all of the cooking fun with none of the hassle. That's why we send you tried and tested recipes, step-by-step instructions with easy to find shopping list ingredients and freshly batched pre-measured spices.

Are Recipe Spicekits good value for money?

Our recipe spice boxes are between £4.95-6.95 each and contain fresh batch of spices to help you cook delicious meals for 4 generous servings or 2 twice.

With our pre-measured spices, you won't feel the need to buy spices in bulk that you don't use often, leaving you with a fresh batch of spice each time without any that goes to waste. 

Do I need to be an experienced cook to use The Spicekits?

Not at all! The Bahaar Spicekits are fun for all ages. There is no cooking experience required (though it might make things a little easier). Just follow the simple instructions on the recipe card provided and you should be cooking like a pro in no time!

Do you have vegan adaptations for your recipes?

  • Palak Paneer: Paneer can be replaced with boiled potato cubes or halved baby potatoes. Alternatively, you can also use tofu. Ghee can be replaced with vegetable oil of your choice.
  • Daal Makhani: Ghee and Butter can be replaced with vegetable oil of your choice. We only use cream for garnishing so that can be skipped.
  • Kala Channa Pulao: Ghee and Butter can be replaced with vegetable oil of your choice. Yoghurt can be replaced within the same step in the recipe instruction with one finely chopped medium tomato.
  • Lahori Chikar Choley: Vegan Spicekit
  • Baingan Bharta: Vegan Spicekit

Are ingredients in your recipe hard to find? 

Currently, we provide pre-portioned Brown Chickpeas, White Chickpeas and Urid & Black Eye Beans Mix to pair with our Kala Channa Pulao, Lahori Chikar Choley and Daal Makhani Spicekits on our store. However, you could also purchase them from your local international food store or online. All our remaining ingredients can be easily found at any big store of Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Waitrose.
