Bollywood Theater Tikka Masala

If you ever find yourself in Portland, Oregon, you must stop by one of Chef Troy MacLarty’s wildly popular Bollywood Theater eateries. Chef MacLarty is doing for Indian food what Chef Rick Bayless did for Mexican fare. He’s redefining our understanding of the cuisine.

I worked with Chef MacLarty and my partner in India, Mr. Divakar, to bring together Bollywood Theater recipes and the finest spices in India. The results were so good, Chef MacLarty is now using our masala blends to prepare the food in his restaurants.

Our Bollywood Theater Tikka Masala is an authentic Indian spice blend featuring cumin, turmeric, black pepper and cayenne. It complements chicken, lamb, fish, veggies and paneer. There’s even a Bollywood Theater recipe inside the tube.

Also available in a 3-pack box set with Garam and Vindaloo Masala.

Bollywood Theater is a wildly popular Indian street food restaurant with two locations in Portland, Oregon. Both are just a rickshaw ride from downtown.

Phenomenal -- exactly like the restaurant.

I was truly excited when I saw this product existed -- the Bollywood Theater pork vindaloo is one of my all time favorite dishes, and we never order enough. With this, it's a problem no more! The recipe was straightforward, and the results were so similar to the restaurant it's practicually indistinguishable. Don't worry, Chef MacLarty, I'll still be visiting for the Bhel Puri and beets!

Garam masala makes my Indian dishes taste more authentic

I love the garam masala from Reluctant Trading. My chicken curry comes out delicious and even my friends from India commented that my curry tastes authentic. I am a repeat customer on this spice mix and recently ordered 3 at one time lol. Try it; it’s such a better blend than most store brands that are very cinnamon forward. Reluctant Trading: be prepared for another order from California for garam masala soon!

Best spices!

Love these spices! So fresh every time!
