Here is a small window into my kitchen.  I love to have spices ready and waiting so I can cook anything I want without delay. 






Common Spices Curry Spices:

  • Chili powder or Cayenne Powder -is used to provide the heat for many spicy dishes
  • Turmeric- has a bright yellow color and a  pungent, warm, earthy aroma and taste
  • Cumin Seeds & Cumin Powder- has a distinctive aromatic odor and a slightly bitter, but warm taste.
  • Coriander Seeds and Coriander Powder- tastes sweet and tangy, with a slightly citrus flavor.
  • Cloves- has strong, sweet aroma and hot, pungent taste
  • Cardamom Pods -Cardamom has a sweet, lemony, eucalyptus flavor. 
  • Fennel Seeds- has a sweet and aniseed flavor.
  • Cinnamon Bark/Sticks is a sweet-tasting spice, with a warm, woody aroma.
  • Curry Leaves- used as an aromatic and flavoring for most curries
  • Fenugreek Seeds- has a warm, yellowish-brown color with a strong curry-like
  • Gram Masala- meaning “hot spices” - is a mixture of ground spices (recipes vary) (cloves, cardamom, cumin, peppercorns and cinnamon, bay leaves). 
  • Curry Powder-  Curry powder is mostly a blend of aromatics that are roasted and ground to season your food. All curry powders vary. There are as many curry powders as there are cooks. Some people make their own. I used a brand of Sri Lankan curry that I like. You may buy a ready made powder from your local Indian grocers. Unfortunately, curry powder is a variable I will not be able to guarantee on the taste of your final dish. I suggest you try a variety and find a curry powder you really like.

  12. As we are aware of the fact already that commercial inspection is very different from residential inspection hence the expertise needed for this to be done are different as well. Commercial inspector is someone who has the necessary experience needed for a commercial inspection which needs certifications and education required by the state along with a portfolio that states that they have done it before and the customers were happy and satisfied with the outcome of the inspection. As neglected as this perspective can be because there is more work when you are just a home inspector, being a commercial building inspector can be pretty rewarding as well because commercial buildings obviously cover more area hence the money will be good and as commercial building inspections are covered by companies, everything will be done more professionally along with the less hassle of having to involve in negotiations. All in all, commercial inspection can be pretty rewarding if a real estate inspector gets a good grip over it.

  13. While there are a ton of residential inspectors present around us always luring us to get a home inspection done from them and many home inspection companies are offering numerous perks if we get a home inspection done from them, when it comes to a commercial inspection, the list narrows down to a limited number and the reason behind this is that commercial property inspection is something on a bigger level and it requires a lot of expertise in order to get it right. When we search with words like commercial property inspection near me while residing in Atlanta, we may get a handsome amount of commercial inspectors on the search results but we should know what to look for before taking any decision. Champia Real Estate Inspections is a company offering expert services for people who are looking for a skilled and experienced commercial real estate inspector to help them in their time of need.

  14. Commercial property inspection is a term which is used when the help of a real estate inspector is needed on a bigger level. It is not just about a house anymore. In order to get done with this process, experience and skill is needed because we are never sure what will be in the box for us because in a place like Atlanta, commercial properties can be of any size and it is not possible for a regular home inspector to bluff on this level that he can satisfy the clients completely. Commercial property inspectors are experts who know exactly what they are dealing with. They are aware that anything can be present on the commercial property and it can be of any size so they need to be prepared prior to the inspection day and they should know how they are going to satisfy the client who is looking for their help regarding their commercial property.

The fact that wherever you are going to spend the maximum of your time should be healthy for you. While we take care of the cleanliness of the space we are working in, taking care of the air quality around us is important as well. One of the most dangerous toxin that is present in the air around us is radon.

  40. As much as home inspections are important Commercial Property Inspection Maryland also holds vast importance as offices are considered to be the second place where people spend most of the time in a day.

The safe levels of radon as suggested by EPA is 4pCi/l and the amount more than it is alarming and you need to install a radon mitigation system at your commercial property as soon as possible.

  51. Contrary to what you may think, the services provided by home inspection companies are not just limited to standard home inspections. Some companies offer many additional services. For example, Elite Home Inspections is a home inspection company Los Angeles that offers multiple additional services like mold inspection, termite inspection, radon testing, and much more. However, these additional services are not considered part of a standard home inspection. So, it is quite obvious that you will be required by the Home Inspectors Los Angeles CA to pay extra charges for these additional services.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Moreover, a house is not the only kind of property that is inspected by the inspection companies. Home inspection companies also perform commercial building inspections. A Commercial Building inspector Los Angeles performs a thorough inspection of the building to make sure everything is in a good state. People usually tend to overlook the maintenance of commercial buildings, but it can turn out to be a dangerous practice. Commercial buildings require as much attention as residential buildings and should not be ignored. If you live in Los Angeles Commercial Building Inspectors can help you decide if your building needs some extra safety features, maintenance, repairs, or replacements. Once you know everything in detail, you can call the repair guys and deal with the issues easily.
