Indian Traditional Spices Grounded
Spices are majorly used in the grounded form in day to day culinary activities.
The whole spices are properly cleaned and graded and then grounded to powder.
Black Pepper Powder ( Polvo de pimienta negra)
Black pepper is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, known as a peppercorn, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. When fresh and fully mature, it is about 5 mm in diameter and dark red, and contains a single seed, like all drupes.
Cinnamon Powder (Canela en polvo)
Its effect on blood glucose levels can also help your body ultimately lose weight. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of cinnamon can provide additional help to those trying to lose weight by promoting an overall healthy body that’ll process food better.
Cumin Powder (Comino en polvo)
People take cumin for digestion problems including diarrhea, colic, bowel spasms, and gas. Cumin is also used to increase urine flow to relieve bloating (as a diuretic); to start menstruation; and to increase sexual desire (as an aphrodisiac). In spices, foods, and beverages, cumin is used as a flavoring component.
Coriander Powder (Cilantro en polvo)
People use the seed for medicine. Coriander is used for digestion problems including upset stomach, loss of appetite, hernia, nausea, diarrhea, bowel spasms, and intestinal gas. It is also used to treat measles, hemorrhoids, toothaches, worms, and joint pain, as well as infections caused by bacteria and fungus.
Clove Ground (Clavo de olor)
Cloves are the aromatic flower buds of a tree in the family Myrtaceae, Syzygium aromaticum. They are native to the Maluku Islands in Indonesia, and are commonly used as a spice. Cloves are available throughout the year due to different harvest seasons in different countries.
Fenugreek Ground (Tierra de alholva)
Based on the available evidence, fenugreek has benefits for lowering blood sugar levels, boosting testosterone, and increasing milk production in breastfeeding mothers. Fenugreek may also reduce cholesterol levels, lower inflammation, and help with appetite control, but more research is needed in these areas.
Garlic Granulated (Ajo granulado)
Granulated garlic is prepared in the same way as garlic powder. The only difference between the two is that granulated garlic has a thick, cornmeal-like texture, while garlic powder is finely ground. Consisting of dried garlic cloves, homemade granulated garlic is a good way to store excess fresh garlic for later use.
Garlic Powder (Polvo de ajo)
Garlic powder is a popular ingredient in spice blends and dry rubs. It’s used to season meat and veggies, and proves a welcome addition in snacks like popcorn and roasted nuts. Garlic powder can even be used to get brighter flavors in low-sodium dishes.
Garlic Dehydrated (Ajo deshidratado)
Dehydrated garlic is high in antioxidants and is a widely used spice used in baking. Garlic is known for a distinct strong and slightly spicy flavor that comes from allicin, which serves to enhance virtually all savory dishes.
Chilli Powder (Chile en polvo)
Chili powder is added to chili con carne, beans, or casseroles when the other ingredients are mixed and set to cook. Often, additional amounts of the spices that are typical components of chili powder (such as cumin) are also called for in the recipe, to create the desired flavor combinations.
Nutmeg Powder (Nuez moscada en polvo)
Nutmeg is the spice made by grinding the seed of the fragrant nutmeg tree into powder. The spice has a distinctive pungent fragrance and a warm slightly sweet taste; it is used to flavor many kinds of baked goods, confections, puddings, potatoes, meats, sausages, sauces, vegetables, and such beverages as eggnog
Onion Powder (Cebolla en polvo)
You can use onion powder in any recipe that calls for fresh onion. Soups and stews are perfect candidates for onion powder. Onion powder is an essential seasoning for ground meat for burgers, meatloaf, chili, skillet suppers and more. Dry rubs are a natural for onion powder.
Onion Dehydrated (Cebolla Deshidratada)
Onion powder is dehydrated, ground onion that is commonly used as a seasoning. It is a common ingredient in seasoned salt and spice mixes, such as beau monde seasoning. Some varieties are prepared using toasted onion. White, yellow and red onions may be used.
Onion Flakes (Hojuelas de cebolla)
Dried onion flakes are a staple for any homemade spice blend. We use only American onion flakes in our blends. A much better alternative to onion powder, freshly ground onion flakes have a great taste: sweet, nutty, and light. Great on their own, onion flakes are used in rubs, Cajun spice blends, dips and salads.
Turmeric Powder (Polvo de cúrcuma)
It contains a yellow-colored chemical called curcumin, which is often used to color foods and cosmetics. Turmeric is commonly used for conditions involving pain and inflammation, such as osteoarthritis. It is also used for hay fever, depression, high cholesterol, a type of liver disease, and itching.
