Just came across this recipe and was delighted to find it as I have been using this mix for years and the result has always been fantastic. Thanks for posting this CA.

Just a small question on the food colouring: is this stuff good to use?

I've never used that particular one but I imagine it would do the job nicely.  It doesn't look very red though (probably just the photo?)?
Regards,

CA :)

you'll get on fine with that Ramirez, I sometimes mix in a little yellow as well for a bit of variety.

Yes, as the recipe suggests, I mix red with yellow (to get orange).  I think orange (rather than red) makes for a much nicer looking tikka/tandoori/CTM.  It is only appearance though.  You can add whatever colour you wish or leave it out altogether.  The taste won't be affected.

CA :)

The answer is yes as others have stated, but unless its only me, that jar looks like it would last you 10 lifetimes of home BIR cookery!

I've had the same pot of red food colouring for about 2 years, and its smaller than my thumb!

 ;D

It's definitely just the picture - the pot is 1-2 inches high. I went to make this the other night and discovered that the instructions on the back state that the colouring should be not added directly to food. It also gives instructions on how to make a master solution (using water).

Has anyone actually used the above product in a spice mix or by adding directly to food? I have been searching for other powders (Sainsburys, Morrisons, etc.) and have had no luck.

I get grumpy when something stands in the way of my BIR cooking!  ;D

Hi Ramirez
I have the orange and red make that you have shown. So far I have included them in Tikka/Tandoori marinates and a CTM paste- they work really well.
You only need a small amount and dont' spill any they are real b******s to clear up .

Thanks for the info. What would you say would be a good amount - 1/4 TSP or maybe 1/8 TSP?
