Description

Many people assume that the tartness of tajín is as a result of the lime juice powder. But the citric acid is just as important, if not more so, for this sour slant. You get that necessary tartness without the bitter. What is Citric Acid? We want mild dried red chillies. Tajín Clásico is a mild blend and that’s what I’m basing our homemade tajín recipe on. It’s amazing what you can buy online! I didn’t even know such a thing existed until I was making tajín for the first time a few years ago. Homemade tajín is very, very easy to put together, as long as you can get your hands on the ingredients needed.

Gives a big flavour boost to any broth or warm tomato sauce,” says Lowe of Japan Centre’s white miso. “It’s also good in salad dressings, stirred into vinegar, perhaps with mustard and oil.”sprinkled over fresh fruit salads and cups – much like chaat masala in South Asia. So you could chop up some mango, pineapple, watermelon, strawberries and sprinkle tajín all over for an amazing fruit salad! Tajín is practically a national institution in Mexico! It’s a Mexican spice blend of dried red chillies, dehydrated lime juice, citric acid and sea salt. And silicon dioxide to prevent caking. I love adding tajínto my fruit smoothies, whatever fruit I happen to have on the day. The tartness and hint of spice takes care of any savoury cravings I have.

This Catalan “pesto” (a ground mix of toasted almonds, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, salt and freestyle herbs) is, says Shumana Palit, a co-owner of the Ultracomida delis in Wales, terrific for adding depth to sauces, soups and stews. “A spoonful makes everything come to life,” she says. Epicurious has a good recipe. These “cooked mushrooms doused in fearsomely hot chilli oil and Sichuan pepper” will, promises Nicola Lando, the owner of Sous Chef, banish “food boredom”.

Table of contents

Variations on the tagine theme from Sally Butcher, John Gregory-Smith and Nargisse Benkabbou. The topping All, I can confirm, are good candidates for the tagine treatment, even parsnips, much as I dislike them – whatever you go for, though, aim for a range of textures and flavours. Some sweetness, in the form of squash or sweet potato, is often welcome, and I’m going to balance that with the slight bitterness and more robust texture of turnips. Both are best in bite-sized pieces, as most recipes recommend; Hart’s 5cm chunks are a bit unwieldy, and take for ever to cook through. I also wouldn’t bother to peel the turnips, unless they’re huge. For the rest of you who can’t get it anywhere, it’s a simple case of mixing the handful of ingredients together. I’ve given the whole dried chillies as a weight, in the recipe. But to some extent, this is relative. Mulatos, for example are denser in feel, and therefore, slightly heavier on the scale. But it’s not an exact science, so don’t worry too much about it. the chillies I used this time Dehydrated Lime Juice Powder Dehydrated lime juice powder is a white powdery substance, looks like powdered milk and is exactly what it says. It’s very tart but also with bitter notes. So you don’t want to use too much of it as your homemade tajín will be bitter. In fact, the original tajin brand contains very little crystallised lime juice, as it’s also called.

I also add it to dals, curries and stews. Dals always want a tart ingredient, and that’s sometimes tamarind, sometimes tomatoes (or both). So tajínis a perfect addition for a flavour boost.Having said that, if you like your spicy food and want a spicier mix, then by all means go for spicier chillies, whether that’s a dried habanero or something hotter. Oh boy, there really is no limit to this. Naturally, think Mexican cuisine, but when you allow yourself to think outside the box, you could go on and on! So the company name is also the name of this tart Mexican spice blend. The original is called Tajín Clásico, and is still my favourite. It’s salty, so, so tangy, a touch sweet and just with a hint of spicy. Citric acid is a mild acid that is found naturally in citrus juice, hence the name. However, obtaining citric acid from fruit is a fairly expensive exercise. What is interesting is that Tajín is actually a brand founded in 1985 by the enterprising Horacio Fernandez. His original mix is based on the flavours of his favourite chilli sauce made by grandma that he’d slather all over corn.

Can’t get dehydrated lime juice? Make a wet tajín mix with fresh lime juice! Then store it in the fridge. Dehydrated lime juice powder Citric Acid PowderI’m using a combination of guajillo, mulato, pasilla and for a just a hint of heat, 2 de arbol. But you can use whatever you like. If you use chipotles, bear in mind your final chilli mix will be smoky too. It is what gives many drinks and sweets (candy) their sour flavour. And that’s exactly the case with tajín. So if you can get citric acid, your tajín will thank you for it.
