Known as an "Anglo-Indian evolution", tikka masala was developed by the British, based on a typical Indian cuisine flavour profile. This curry is normally made with roasted pieces of chicken, slow cooked in a creamy yogurt and spice mix.
A vibrant blend of cultures and flavours – from the tip of Africa to the tip of the tongue!
Founded in 1994, Cape Herb & Spice is based in Cape Town, a vibrant and cosmopolitan city situated at the tip of Africa. Our location is significantly situated along the West-African trade route explored by sailors in the 1400’s. The Dutch East India Company, a dominant force in the spice trade, went on to establish a settlement in Cape Town in the mid 1600’s, which acted as a midway point for their exchange with Asia. This mix of European, African and Asian cultures has given the city a rich culinary heritage, and it's against this background that the Cape Herb & Spice company was formed.
