Floyd Cardoz was a celebrated Indian-born American chef, beloved for the warmth and spice he infused into ingredients and the genuine care and compassion he bestowed on his staff and guests alike. In his 30-year career, chef Floyd led restaurants in the United States and India, penned two cookbooks, won a national television cooking competition, and contributed his time and talent to countless charitable organizations. He passed away in March 2020.

The FC + B & B collaboration masalas were conceived in 2019 by Chef Floyd Cardoz. We're proud to release them with his wife and business partner, Barkha, as a memorial to his love for the cuisines of India and his passion for sharing them with the world. 

In 2020, we launched the first three masalas: Goan Masala, which captured the flavors of his family's homeland; Kashmiri Masala, from his travels as a young cook; and Garam Masala, the cornerstone of his spice cupboard. In 2021, we continued that legacy with three new masalas: Green Tikka Masala, an adaptation of an iconic dish from his restaurant Tabla; Vindaloo Masala, Floyd's mother's recipe for the classic Goan stew; and Chaat Masala, an "everything" seasoning that he loved to sprinkle on...pretty much everything.

Green Tikka Masala *NEW*

"Chicken tikka was one of the most popular dishes at Floyd's famous restaurant, Tabla, and it evokes strong emotions to this day. Floyd created it to give his guests a new chicken tikka that was different from the typical red tandoori style, using curry leaves, ginger, garlic, and a little chili. Use this masala as a rub or base in curries with coconut milk or yogurt. Finish with a little soy sauce, a squeeze of lime, and chopped onions." -Barkha Cardoz

  • Ingredients: Garlic, black pepper, cumin, curry leaves, ginger, Cobanero chili
  • Tasting notes: Herbal • Nutty • Savory
  • CookingPaneer Green Tikka
  • Cooking Instructions: For the best flavor, bloom the masala in oil, butter or ghee at the beginning of the cooking process alongside other aromatics (onions, garlic, tomatos, etc.)

Vindaloo Masala *NEW*

"Vindaloo is a Goan style of marinated cooking using chilis, garlic, and vinegar. Floyd's mum Beryl makes amazing vindaloo, and she shared her recipes with her kids. Floyd often made pork vindaloo for our family whenever he craved his mum's food, and I hope this masala transports you to our kitchen. Marinate your main ingredient with this masala, crushed garlic, vinegar, and salt for a few hours, then simmer until fully cooked." -Barkha Cardoz

  • Ingredients: Garlic, black pepper, Kashmiri chili, turmeric, cumin, sweet paprika, smoked paprika, cloves, cinnamon verum
  • Tasting notes: Spicy • Smoky • Powerful
  • CookingVegetable Vindaloo

Chaat Masala *NEW*

"This is one of our family favorites; it’s tangy, salty, savory, herbal, and just a little hot. This was one of Floyd's favorite masalas as well, and he loved to finish chaats and grilled dishes with a generous sprinkle of the masala and a squeeze of lime. It's a perfect finish to fresh fruit, crunchy veggies, grain-based salads and chaats, and anything else that needs an extra sizzle of flavor." -Barkha Cardoz

  • Ingredients: Black pepper, Kashmiri chili, cumin, ginger, coriander, fennel, ajwain, mint, black salt, amchur, tamarind, hing
  • Tasting notes: Tart • Funky • Complex
  • Cooking: Chickpea and Apple Chaat

Goan Masala

"Every Goan family has a blend of spices they use for everyday cooking -- this was Floyd's. When our sons were young, we decided to leave out fresh chili peppers to cook milder curries of shrimp, chicken, and vegetables. Adding coconut milk makes this earthy curry creamy and full-bodied." -Barkha Cardoz

Kashmiri Masala

“When Floyd was 18, he traveled to India’s northernmost state of Kashmir. He had never tasted their mix of Kashmiri chili, ginger, and fennel before, but the combination quickly became one of his favorites. This aromatic masala gives beans, vegetables, lamb, chicken, and stewed potatoes new life. Cook with yogurt to meld the flavors together.” -Barkha Cardoz

  • Ingredients: Kashmiri chili, coriander, ginger, fennel, cinnamon, turmeric, cinnamon leaf, black cardamom, yellow cardamom, mace, cloves
  • Tasting notes: Fennel • Ginger • Aromatic
  • Aliases: Rogan Josh Masala
  • CookingPork & Bean Stew with Kashmiri & Garam Masalas

Garam Masala

“Every chef has a top-secret recipe of spices they combine for their garam masala. This deceptively simple yet bright and aromatic blend was Floyd’s. Just before serving lentils, beans, vegetables, or meat, bloom garam masala with aromatics in ghee or sprinkle directly into the cooking pot to finish with fragrant, floral notes.” -Barkha Cardoz

Holla over Masalas

Upon receiving the Cardoz Masala pack of 3, my husband and I were inspired to cook many new recipes. We have also liked them so much we purchased a pack as a gift for family who also loves to cook. We've even reordered more to replace what we've used as to not go without. We love Burlap & Barrell spices.

Wow

I’m going to be honest. I’m not a great cook. So initially I was really intimidated by the amazing Floyd Cardoz Spices. I’m sad we’ve lost Floyd and thrilled his family is carrying on his traditions. These spice mixes are so easy to add to my dishes not overpowering but enhancing. Thank you B&B for partnering w/Mr Cardoz.

superb quality

I'm so in love with the flavor and quality of these spices, my only complaint is that they aren't sold in larger quantities individually, give the speed at which I go through the Kashmiri and Garam Masalas
