masala powders

Our customers say

Easily the best sambar masala I've had till date. Having tried over 50 brands of sambar powder over the years, I can safely say that nothing has come close to what you guys are preparing. The aroma of the sambar powder fills the kitchen the moment I open the box. The sambar flavours are simply superb with a good balance of all spices. Keep up the great work. Customer for life.

Nice and easy and convenient to prepare products. For Vegans visiting foreign lands, it's a blessing. 


Extremely happy with the instant foods I bought. I've tried 2 of the 4 and they're SO VERY GOOD! My 16-yr old who says she hates this kind of food, simply loved it!!!
You guys are exceptional!

Pleasantly surprised by quick and on time delivery. Poha and Sabudana Upma are quick to make and delicious too. Very happy to have ordered the stuff. Look forward to try some new stuff as well.

LOVED the Pongal. So easy to prepare as well. Haven't had the Sabudana Khichdi yet - maybe this weekend. The peanut chutney was nice too.


Tastes like the Ginger Thokku my granny used to make in Andhra style.
