Kerala Spicy Chicken Fry + Spice Spray - A Review

Kerala Spicy Chicken Fry

After a wearisome busy week and a fun filled long weekend with friends , all I wanted was to pleasantly slide into the unconscious influence of habit - read and sleep . Though its just mid-week i am doing an excellent job so far.♥♥, cos of the knowledge that I have a week long vacation ahead :)...

You all know about my love for spices. How can a gal of my "heritage" be otherwise? I always try to use fresh herbs , whole spices and make my own garam masala . I had a kind of aversion and was skeptical about using anything else until I tried this Spice Spray from Italy.
Spice Spray

When Peter of Spice Spray asked me whether I would be interested to do a review of the same , I thought that's it !!!!! I need to try and start liking other things to make my cooking easy and more flavorful. I am glad I did and curious of how all can i use these different flavors to spice up my dishes.

Spice Spray is a third generation new fancy way to flavor already cooked or raw dishes. Available in eight different flavors like Basil , Garlic , Truffle , Curry , Chili pepper , Oregano , Lemon and Sea salt , my favorite is Basil and Chili Pepper. As they state their mission is to "revolutionise the way people seasoning their meals and give them new ideas to use natural spices" , and I am convinced they are indeed trying for a revolution with this easy to use product.

Radish Salad , with olive oil dressing and .....

The interesting and attractive part about this product is that you can add this before or after you cook the dish. The point is , even you forget to add some spices while cooking , you can always give a splash after cooking and pretend it was all there..Wink..

First i tried making a radish salad which i picked up from my last trip to farm market  and whipped up a simple salad with onions and olive oil dressing and finally  a generous drizzle  of Lemon spray . You could really smell and taste the real lemons in it..Simply delicious...

Steak Berry Salad for Dinner

All four seasons , steaks are always dear to us and and we are on the look out for new and interesting ways to serve it . In summer one of our favorite one is a steak -fruits savory salad with a citrus-sy dressing. This time after marinating it with my usual marinade I gave it a generous splash with  curry and chili pepper flavored spray, and really loved it ♥♥...

Tomato Chicken  Pizza -Spice Spray

I normally stock up Italian Tomato pizza , for a quick dinner on lazy evenings , and I mostly complain,its just plain. Trust me  this spice spray works best on this.
Arrange your favorite toppings , sprinkle some cheese , spritz any one or two of this 8 flavors from Spice Spray and voila´ , flavorful pizza in minutes.

I am totally in love with basil for sometime , and I have it in my patio garden too.But I wasn't satisfied with adding it to fried dishes and found a solution with the spice spray.I used the basil flavor to spice up my Kerala style chicken fry (either use it before frying or after frying) and loved every last bite of it ♥♥.

I couldn't stress more , if you love spices , and looking for an easy way to add flavor to your cooking , this is for you. You can find about the company and more info here.
Thanks Peter and Spice Spray for giving me an opportunity to get acquainted with this product. A real shortcut to spice up your cooking...

I agree with you on making everything from scratch. I don't make my own garam masala, because my mom makes it - even grows fresh coriander seeds for it.
The spice spray sounds really interesting though. And the spicy chicken looks delicious.

Lyndsey said...

This sounds great! I like the idea of spraying it on after it's cooked if you want. I like things spicier than my husband does. I feel the same way about spices...I love to blend my own and use the best organic I can find, and grow many herbs. I just planted some turmeric and it's starting to get some leaves on it. I feel I can get excited about it with you ;-)
