Which makes crush chilli the best way to add heat when you cook 1 curry for 2 people who like opposite ends of the chilli specturm, serve up the mild version first, add crushed chillies for 1 more minute then serve the hot version. 100g

WHOLE AROMATIC CLOVES
Cloves are a wonderful aromatic and peppery spice but be careful as a little goes a long way and too much can overpower a dish. I tend to start a new recipe using 2 only and then adding up to another 4 if I think it can take that amount but rarely more than 6. The good news is that it means 100g could last you a while!

WHOLE BLACK PEPPER PEPPERCORNS
Black pepper is the ubiquitous spice. Not only peppery and hot it adds dark aromatics to most dishes and is used for seasoning food towards the end of cooking with salt. Not only that, we love it so much it is always on the table to allow diners to add more seasoning if they wish. Traditionally Inidan food was given heat by pepper before the Chilli was introduced to India by the Portuguese, so I sometimes make curries with extra black pepper rather than chilli to have a contrasting heat tone which works very well. 100g.

WHOLE CORIANDER/CILANTRO SEEDS
Many dishes call for Whole Coriander seeds esepcially middle eastern and Indian dishes. Toasted they give the best of themselves as the essential oils are released.

Gently crushed in a pestle and mortar they are also great when used in a meat rub seasoning. 100g.
