Homemade Curry Marinade

When we think of curry, a lot of us think of mouthfuls of fiery, mouth-watering flavour, and rightfully so!

With Rajah’s exciting range of curry powders and spice blends, your curry marinade is guaranteed to always go down as a hit.

Making A Curry Marinade

What Are The Three Basic Ingredients In A Curry Marinade?

When it comes to making a memorable marinade, there are three ingredients that must be in the mix - an oil (or fat), an acid, and a spice mix for seasoning. The oil becomes infused with the flavours you add to your marinade and evenly coats your meat or vegetables in your delicious marinade. The acid helps to tenderise your meat and adds some tangy flavour to your marinade. Then finally, your seasoning mix brings it all together by adding generous flavour to your marinade.

How To Make Curry Marinade

So, to create the ultimate curry marinade, when adding the spices and seasonings to flavour your marinade, use your choice of Rajah’s delicious curry powders or spice blends to add robust flavour to your marinade. Delight your taste buds with spicy flavour or seriously fiery heat when you season your marinade with Rajah. If you enjoy a milder heat, our Mild & Spicy

or Mild Masala curry powders are the perfect spice middle-ground to make your mouth water. Or if you’re craving the irresistible, fiery flavour of a beef madras, infuse your marinade with the taste of this exotic curry with our Beef Madras Spice Blend.
