Bhuna is a highly spiced yet quite mild curry with lots of complex flavours and a bit of tang from the use of tamarind in the sauce.

The name describes the cooking technique of first frying the onions, garlic and spices in hot oil to form a dark, brown paste then adding the meat resulting in a dark brown, intensely-flavoured thick sauce coating the tender meat. It makes a great meal with a cooling tomato raita on the side.

Great service, they have really upped their game. Used to have a subscription about 2 years ago as a gift. Problem was, it would take about 1-2 hrs to prepare and cook and we are not novices. Cannot recommend enough, the recipes are very tasty, and easy

I have had quite a few kits from Spicery and they were always excellent, tasty, fresh and vibrant. This bhuna was very poor and had very little taste. Very disappointed and would not buy again. I am just hoping the Madras I bought at the same time is better.

Quick and easy to use, great flavour, been using their kits for a couple of years, love all the different choices, the only problem we have in our house is when the kits change, the kids cannot get there favourites, but on a positive it means they have to try something new. Bring back the Beef Birria, its our all time fav.
