An aromatic homage to the trade winds across the Indian Ocean, our golden Swahili Coast Curry is descended from thousands of years of culinary exchange. The spices in this Origin Blend are grown in an organic agroforestry system and then dried, ground and blended by our partner cooperative. Gently bloom 2–3 tablespoons in coconut oil or ghee and then add coconut milk or chopped tomatoes to create a luscious, savory curry sauce for fish, shrimp, chicken or veggies.
- Use as a rub for meat and vegetables for roasting
- Simmer in coconut milk for stews
- Bloom in oil or ghee to start cooking a fragrant dish
We source our Curry blend from a cooperative of smallholder farmers on the Zanzibar islands off of the eastern coast of Tanzania. Many of these same families have been growing pepper and other spices (including our Cinnamon Verum, Pemba Cloves and Stone Nutmeg) for generations.
All of the spices from our partner cooperative in Zanzibar are grown on an EU-certified organic farm.
