Why You’ll Dig This

– That subtle taste of curry is like nothing else you’ve every tried before

– The coriander, cardamom and cloves liven up anything with a citrussy zing

– Fennel and fenugreek bring an incredibly sweet, nutty, aromatic depth you won’t believe possible

Where To Use This

– This one is a showstopper: Get some lamb chops and give it beans with the seasoning before finishing it under a hot grill or BBQ with apricot jam or mango chutney as a glaze. Heaven.

– Lamb again, but slower. Do the same as above but low and slow with a big joint like lamb shoulder or lamb leg. Heaven again.

– Did we mention you can use it on other stuff, not just lamb? Yep, put it on/in roasted vegetables, pasta salad, salmon, roast potatoes, pot noodles, macaroni cheese, steak, beef, stew? whatever. Get the idea?

Every pack is sealed to keep the yummy goodness as fresh as can be, and comes in a nifty shaker thing. Not happy with it? You must be a weirdo. Not really. If you’re not 100% happy with it for any reason, we’ll refund it in full. Promise.


Salt, coriander, cumin, caraway seeds, garlic, black pepper, turmeric, mustard, chickpea flour, chilli, fenugreek, fennel, cloves, cardamom.

    This has quickly become one of my favourite spice blends. It wasn’t a combination I’d knowingly tried before; but I’ve only scratched the surface of South African cooking.
    The Cape Malay has a blend of spices that take you to a melting pot of cultures somewhere hot. They’re all quite earthy & manage to play hide & seek in your mouth. They seem to line up behind the dominant fennel and fenugreek; peeking out & ducking back in again before you can quite place them. A very clever mix.
    They love fat to make them all really sing clearly though. So succulent lamb/hogget/mutton is a real given. Oily fish like mackerel, trout or salmon are also great. Other fatty foods like cheese or good sauces are elevated with it too.
    Think my favourite plate with it so far were some bone in [with marrow] hogget gigot chops, with macaroni cheese & ghee sautéed fava beans. The spice ran through it all & was very good
    Very much worth a place in your spice cabinet.

    I made a delicious vegetable and rice dish with this blend and was blown away by how delicious it was. Complex curry flavours with a subtle sweetness…I’ll be using this on fish and chicken over the next couple of weeks. I’m so glad I found this blend!

    This product is a new staple in my cooking repertoire and I can’t be without it. Never tasted anything quite like it before.

    I love this seasoning on fish. I coat the fish with olive oil and this seasoning and cook it in the oven. Reminds me so much of the old days in SA!

    I love this seasoning to cook lamb. I followed the suggestion and put this on followed by an apricot jam glaze, and just WOW.

    Very tasty, great ingredients. Perfect as a marinade. Used as dry rub for lamb chops, they were outstanding.

    Really nice spice blend to add to chicken. I wasn’t sure about the curry being in a rub but it’s really good.
