You’ve seen me use the Indian technique of tadka before in Season and you will again in my new book, The Flavor Equation and also in my other recipes but I’ve been meaning to approach it from the lens of science to explain what it does and how it works. I’ve finally written about it for my new column at Serious Eats and I’ve included several tips that I use in my kitchen with this flavor building technique.

To learn more about the science of tadka and how to apply some of the principles behind it in a recipe (Carrot Raita) head over to Serious Eats.

Happy cooking
