Hard to beat indian food prepared by someone who knows what they are doing, probably my favorite cuisine. you lucky dog.Great thread. I'm surprised garam masala hasn't been mentioned yet. We make our own as it's cheaper and we can tailor it to our taste. Then again, my better half is Indian and we don't camp without the whole spice kit. She has a very nice compact spice kit that we bring everywhere. For the 300g it weighs, the ability to cook up some nice Goan shrimp or saag paneer trailside is priceless. We always seem to be the site where folks walk by and comment on how good it smells!
