Kala Masala Shrimp Cakes

Kala Masala is an Indian spice blend, named for the dark color of its ingredients, which are often toasted before use. Sweet spices like cloves and tangy amchoor make this blend an excellent seasoning on seafood, and especially good on shellfish.

We used Kala Masala as the signature flavor in these shrimp cakes, which have sweet potato and rice as the binder and a coconut crust. That also makes them gluten free, for those keeping score. The Rooster Spice aioli, which we whipped up as a dipping sauce, takes no time at all. It’s spicy and just a little bit sweet: the perfect accompaniment to these tasty appetizers.
