Maya Kaimal Indian Simmer Sauces

Maya Kaimal Indian Simmer Sauces

I love love love Indian food. The combinations of flavors are so delicious. I have tried to re-create Indian flavored/themed dishes and they have turned out terribly. The staff over at Maya Kaimal were nice enough to send me a box of their simmer sauces, along with some recipe cards. I have tried three of the six sauces, but I couldn’t wait to tell you all about the three I’ve tried! Keep an eye out for further recipes with the rest of the three sauces.

For two of the three sauces I tried, I used recipes off of the recipe cards I was given. First was a Roasted Cauliflower and Peas with the Butter Masala sauce. This was good, but this sauce wasn’t my favorite- butttt that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it! I did enjoy the sauce. It was sweet, not as spicy. It is a good sauce for those who prefer sweets over spicy. I served it over a bed of brown rice.

The second recipe I tried was their Chicken Tikka Masala. This sauce was very good (still not my favorite- the last one is my favorite thus far!!!).. This had a bit more of a kick to it. The flavor combination was delicious, and I really enjoyed the chicken. If I were to re-do these recipes, I would combine these two dishes and pick a sauce. I do like the combination of veggies and chicken.

The third recipe is an Indian twist on a Hawaiian pizza… When I first received the simmer sauces I knew I wanted to make some sort of pizza. I love putting twists on pizzas. For this pizza I used the Jalfrezi Curry. The recipe card below will detail how I made this pizza. It was a combination of the simmer sauce, sauteed onions, chicken, mangoes and mozzarella cheese… It. Was. Delish. This was by far my favorite sauce. I have left-over chicken in the fridge and I can’t wait to make a pita/wrap/sandwich with it.ย
