So, what is madras?

Madras is a spicy blend of ground Indian spices commonly used in South Indian cuisine. It typically includes a mix of coriander, cumin, mustard seeds, turmeric, fenugreek, black pepper, and dried red chilies. This aromatic and flavorful spice blend adds warmth and depth to curries, stews, and soups. The name "Madras" comes from the city of Chennai, formerly known as Madras, where the spice blend originated. With its bold and complex flavor profile, madras is a popular ingredient in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, and is sure to add a kick to any recipe.
