The spices used in Persian cooking are quite subtle to enhance the flavours of the other ingredients rather than overpower. This fragrant Persian stew, or Khoresht, is flavoured with cinnamon, cumin, saffron and dried black lime. We’re serving it with a delicious mint and garlic butter-coated yogurt along with sabzi polow - sabzi means ‘green’ in Persian, which in this instance refers to the dried herbs in this lovely aromatic rice dish.

That's one of our old favourites too Seonad (in fact we've never taken it off the list of kits since we first made it)! Glad to hear you enjoy it so much!

I love The Spidery. Their spices are very high quality and as fresh as can be. Their spice kits are a weekly treat for us; always something new and interesting and always easy to follow.

Took this on holiday with us to Norfolk, it made a really special meal. I think the Spicery should include rice spices in their spice products.

Every time I order from them it is there within a couple of days. If you need to contact them for any reason there is a real human being who is really helpful. It's a 10 out of 10 service

I'm now a complete convert and regularly order. The recipes are so easy, you just need half a dozen ingredients that I usually have anyway and they take about 20 mins to prepare. So easy and tasty. Highly recommend!

Prompt delivery. Good flavour and very easy to follow recipes. I like that all the ingredients to buy are easy to find and mainly things I buy anyway. A great way to add variety to our meals.

Delicious and different enough from Indian curries to feel original. The mint yoghurt is very refreshing although take care not to burn the mint.

Excellent product and service. My order did not arrive but after a telephone call they sent out a replacement that arrived within two days. Great customer service.

Spicery Customer

The service I received from the Spicery was excellent again; the only reason for not 'awarding' a full house of stars was that delivery was a couple of days slower than anticipated ~ obviously I cannot comment where the delay in the system was. The kit was easy to use and my friends enjoyed the meal I cooked. One suggestion, possibly the Spicery could point to sites with recipes for side dishes for the main meal. I cooked the Trinidad Chicken Curry and found a couple of Caribbean side dishes which complimented the curry.

Difficult to find vegetarian options without ordering a subscription. It would be helpful to have all the recipe kits clearly marked if suitable for vegetarian options, and to have more options outside the subscription. Also, I didn't realise until I phoned that if I log in I get a wider choice of kits including some ex-subscription kits. However, staff on the phone were very pleasant and helpful, and ordering online was fine once I had chosen the kits.

I have purchased gift packs from the spicery twice now and will do again in the future and have happily passed on their details to friends and family. We found out about them by receiving a gift pack of curry spice meal kits ourselves. The meals we have cooked with the kits have all been delicious. The items are well packaged, arrive quickly in the post and the instructions are easy to follow. We were particularly surprised and pleased to receive a freebie pack of spices with our order! Cannot fault, excellent service and products.
