Taj Mah Balls has created a spice mix!!! The recipe is exactly how my grandma used to make it! I made it to be included, along with 4 other Brooklyn-based, female makers' creations, in a limited edition holiday gift box.
The spice mix comes with a custom risograph printed recipe booklet, two pins, and a mini spice spoon. The handmade riso zine includes my grandma's recipes for shikampur kebabs, and for the ambitious folks out there -- her lamb meatball curry (what TMB bases our Taj Mah Grandma's Balls recipe on). With this spice mix and recipe booklet, you can make Hyderabadi food at home (or not --- put them on your eggs or potatoes, or in your coffee, I don't care, just let me know how it works out for you).
In addition to TMB's contribution, you'll find:
Pecan and Salted Caramel Blondies from Blondery by Auzerias, former pastry sous-chef at Thomas Keller's Bouchon baker. She also previously staged at Per Se and The French Laundry. I thought I didn't like blondies until I had Auzi's blondies.
Savory Cheddar Chive Cookies from The Rounds by Anna, a caterer, food stylist, teaching chef, and consultant for emerging food brands. She previously spent 16 years as a designer and creative director in the fashion/accessories/design world. Her savory cookies are neither biscuit nor cracker, they are cookies and they are great.
Bumble and Butter's Black Truffle Granola. Jamie makes savory and sweet granola with local, thoughtfully-sourced ingredients. This granola is made with 100% grass-fed butter from upstate NY and fresh truffles from Perigord, France. I've had this granola on its own and am so excited to start included it in other savory dishes like salads!
A handmade ceramic bowl in quail egg glaze from Noble Plateware. Jaclyn is a ceramicst who runs Noble Plateware (founded by Wynn Noble). She works directly with chefs to create 100% handmade ceramics. I once ate at Contra and said "who the hell made these bowls??", and now I know and I love them.
