Garam Masala is one of the most important Indian spice blends and is absolutely indispensable. It is vital to have a good quality one rather than shop bought varieties which often contain turmeric as a filler ingredients. It is much better to make your own so you know exactly what has gone into it and you can tailor it to suit. Warming, packed with flavor, and absolutely delicious in so many different recipes including Vicky's garam masala scrambled eggs.

7. Coconut Fish Dream

This is a totally delicious and versatile sauce, which is similar to, but simpler than a qurma (or korma) sauce (as there are no white poppy seeds or nuts) which you can use for fish, vegetables, chicken, prawns or any seafood really. It is also wonderful with crayfish, clams or lobster! Qurmas were introduced to India by the Mughal Empire, who loved adding a luxurious creaminess to their savoury sauces, and indeed, this can be made with single or double cream, but Vicky uses coconut milk because it makes it unctuous and delicious!
