Shemin’s Goan Curry Paste

Judges said: “A richly coloured paste with a fabulous level and combination of spice. A gentle heat which builds gradually – it’s not in your face with the first bite. Well balanced. It certainly delivered on flavour.”

Shemin’s Seafood Curry Paste

Judges said “Great looking curry paste with a warm aroma of well cooked spices. This has been made with finesse and knowledge of spices to give a complex flavour profile rich with spices. It builds with well judged heat to bring a great tasting curry which has great intensity but a well balanced and rounded finish.”

Shemin’s Aubergine Pickle

Judges said: “There are lovely earthy tones in the aromas here, with the very mild astringency of the pickling and the roasted spices blending well. We felt like this was more like a delicious curry in a jar, as it had such substance and depth of taste that it stood alone in its culinary identity.”

Shemin’s Plain Chapatis

Judges said: “This chapati looks the business and home-made. It is flecked with brown, and has plenty of airy pockets. On tasting it’s flaky and light with lots of flavour. As you say it would be lovely with melted butter or olive oil. A perfect vehicle for any curry or even used as a flat bread with fusion toppings. This is very well-made and we applaud it.”

Shemin’s Wholemeal Naan Breads

Judges said: “This flatbread has good colour and an inviting nutty aroma. The appearance is rustic and well baked. Very good flavour, creamy texture. The wholemeal flour gives lovely nutty flavours with a slight sweetness that is really pleasant.”

Shemin’s Garam Masala

Judges said: “On tasting this garam masala raw we were pleased at how vibrant the flavours were. This is a delightful blend of fragrant spices that would enhance any curry and would make a useful rub.”
