This should be in the syn forum and you might have gotten more replies there, so if it moves location don't panic!

Garam masala, chilli, garlic, ginger, turmeric, coriander, cumin/jeera, asafoetida, cinnamon etc are all free/superfree etc

not sure which ones you would think have syns?

Only "herby" things I've seen with syns are the salad seasonings or seasonings with sugar added. Whole or ground plain spices and herbs are fine. So if its in the wee jars or packets they should be fine, things like the chilli con carne mix from Schwartz etc have syns as they have sugar and flour added, but chilli powder, cumin etc won't

Is that what you mean?

They're all going to be free if they're the basic herbs/spices.

If they're combined in some sort of "easy cook" packet, they may have sugar or starch added: check the calories and that'll give you the syns.
Beware of spices in a paste, though: they will be combined with oil, and quite high syn. Again - check the calories on the packet/jar and count a syn per 20 cal.

That all looks totally free. Does it have nutrition info on the pack?

I did wonder about the lemon oil :confused: not sure if that is synned.

oil for all types 1 tsp is 2 syns on all plans so that would only be 1/2 syn each if you base it on 4 servings.

Given how low the down the list lemon oil appears I would doubt if there's as much as 1tsp in it? If its a dry mix its likely to be a minimal amount

That's what I thought, but even if you aired on the side of caution I would take 1/2 syn for it, just me though.

It's dry spices, I mix 3-4 heap spoons into live yoghurt slit the chicken drumsticks and marinate.

Best thing about this pack of Tandoori Masala you don't have to add anything else.

No nuitional info on pack.

This is all so confusing. To be safe I placed 1 syn per serving.

Thank you to everyone for your help/advise
