Tandoori seasoning—a blend of coriander, cumin, garlic, paprika, ginger, cardamom, and saffron—combines with shiitake mushrooms, sweet yams, and fresh tarragon for a soup that is earthy yet exotic. This is one of my favorite soups.
Tandoori seasoning is an aromatic mix of spices. Orange- and red-colored seasoning mixes typically include cumin, garlic, ginger, coriander, and paprika. Some will add in turmeric, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, onion, clove, cinnamon and saffron. If you don’t have tandoori seasoning, you can use curry powder in a pinch, or you can make your own tandoori blend by searching “tandoori spice blend recipes” online (leaving out any salt).Print
