I have a very basic spice collection and I don't have easy access to shops that sell spices so when I go to the closest city next week I am planning on buying a few good to have and use spices.
So the question is; which spices should I pick up?
I already have yellow and black mustard sees, cardamon pods, kaffirlime leaves, sweet paprika and turmeric.
is there an unwritten rule about which are the best spices to have on hand which will do in some of the more basic Indian cooking?
Any help is great, thanks
