Rafi’s Bombay Potato (mild)

This is our ‘go to’ spice blend, which is fantastic with potatoes, but you can use it with any firm vegetables.

Rafi's Bhajia Pack (medium) 

The classic Indian snack to make fresh at home! Keep it traditional with finely sliced onion or throw caution to the wind with freshly grated courgette, earthy beetroot or chunky slices of par-boiled new potatoes.

Rafi's Mushroom Bhajee Pack (medium) 

An earthy side dish in a thick, comforting tomato sauce. Not partial to mushrooms? This dish works just as well with roasted butternut squash or sweet potatoes.

Rafi's Tarka Dhal Pack (mild) 

Soft, satisfying lentils with earthy spices and garlic tempered in hot oil. Try adding a dash of lemon juice for a tangy dhal or a finely chopped fresh tomato for a more savoury edge.

Rafi's Carrot Salad Spice Blend (mild)

Crunchy and fresh! This salad is perfect as a vibrant accompaniment to any of Rafi’s curries.
