Title: Know the Different Types of Spices

Know the Different Types of Spices
Spices Herbs
Spices and herbs add that extra flavour in a meal
and release an aroma that makes one drool. So
what exactly are they and what are their types?
Spices can come from any part of a plant except
the leaf. The leaves are called herbs. Lets
discuss the different categories of indian
spices. Depending on how and where theyre used,
it could be the difference between a good meal
and a great meal.
Sweet Spice O Mine
Sweet spices are added to increase the sweetness
or balance the spice factor in savoury dishes.
Generally associated with desserts and sweet
dishes, these spices vary in strength from dish
to dish. Some sweet spices include allspice,
nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon etc
The Tangy Factor
Tangy spices contain a distinctive acidic
flavour. These spices can be added to select
dishes where the tangy taste is needed to be in
the forefront. Some tangy spices include tamarind
and sumac.
Less is more with Pungent Spices
Add a vibrant element into your culinary skills,
pungent spices are extremely strong and should be
used in small quantities so as not to overpower
the main flavour and taste. These spices are
characterised by a strong flavour. Some examples
are cloves, ginger, saffron etc. For eg, your
homemade paneer butter masala could have a touch
of ginger to get the aroma going.
Turn Up the Heat
Hot spices as the term suggests increases the
spicy-ness in a meal. Chilli is the most common
hot spice followed by mustard and pepper. These
spices should be used in low quantities unless of
course the meal demands it.
Amalgamating Spices
These spices go with everything and anything and
can be added in conjunction with any other spice.
They unite the different flavours and bring out a
wonderful taste. Some examples are turmeric,
coriander etc. These spices are readily available
in the supermarket or if youre browsing for
online grocery shopping.
