So I have had many a conversation recently with people about spices and their use. Here's what I say to them and wanted to share it with everyone. Start with a few spices, taste them understand them and slowly build up your pantry over time. Don't hoard those spices- spring clean those spice collections. They don't last forever sadly, so if there are any you haven't used for more than a year, the likelihood is they've lost their flavour.
Finally go easy on how much you add into curries, a little goes a long way and you don't want to over power your dish. Happy Cooking and spice up your life
