Signature Recipes from the Kitchens of Fuchs

These four easy, great-tasting recipes are just the beginning of what you can create when you start with our Summer Sensations seasonings as your foundation:


Butter Chicken Tacos

Butter Tacos 11

Steps:

  • Combine 2-3 Tbsp. Butter Chicken Sauce Seasoning with 1 cup water.
  • Bring to boil over medium heat.
  • Add 2 cups of cooked chicken.
  • Cook on medium-low setting for 2-3 minutes, or until chicken is heated through.

Chef Elizabeth’s Tip: This recipe is traditionally served with rice, but the sauced chicken also makes delicious Butter Chicken Tacos!


Kashmiri Spiced Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake 8

Steps:

  • Prepare cake pans by lining with parchment paper and spraying lightly with cooking spray. (You can also line a muffin
    tin with cupcake papers.)
  • Combine 1 cup sugar with 4 eggs in a mixing bowl.
  • Mix with a paddle attachment on speed setting 2 for 2-3 minutes. 
  • With mixer still running, slowly drizzle in 3/4 cups oil. 
  • Add ½ cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt and 1-½ cups shredded carrots; mix for 2 minutes or until fully incorporated.
  • Add 1-¼ cups of Kashmiri Spiced Carrot Cake Mix; mix for 1-2 minutes; then scrap sides and bottom of bowl.
  • Add 1-¼ additional cups of the cake mix, mixing until fully incorporated; scrape sides and bottom of bowl. (Mix again if needed.)
  • Pour batter into prepared cake pans or muffin tin.
  • Bake on center rack in preheated oven at 350°F for 23-30 minutes (cake pan) or 20-25 minutes (cupcakes).
  • Rotate pan halfway through bake time.
  • To check doneness, insert a toothpick into cake center; it
    should come out clean.

 

Chef Elizabeth’s Tip: For a more indulgent batter, add one or more of the following ingredients:
• ½ cup golden raisins
(hydrated and drained)
• ½ cup toasted shredded coconut
• ¼ cup crushed cashews
• ¼ cup crushed pistachios


Kerala Style Lamb Curry 

Kerala Lamb 9

Steps:

  • Apply 2-3 Tbsp. of Kerala Style Lamb Curry Seasoning for each pound of lamb.

  • Preheat a sauté pan over medium heat with 2 Tbsp. olive oil; sear lamb on all sides.
  • For each pound of lamb, add ½ cup water to pan; then cover.
  • Turn heat down and finish cooking to desired doneness.

Chef Elizabeth’s Tip: For tender cuts such as lamb chops, cook for approximately 5-7 minutes. For less tender cuts such as stew meat, simmer for approximately 1-2 hours or until tender.
