We have designed our catalogue to cater to both your nostalgia, as well as your desire to explore superior everday use products from authentic origins. We have curated fine Indian food products and food ingredients across 1 categories - sweets, snacks incl. healthy snacks, fine staples, bakery items, papads/pickles and masalas/mixes.
Our masalas, mixes and pastes help you cook some of the most authentic dishes in an easy way. We work with a panel of chefs who have cooked these products and have confirmed that they are indeed special – do check out some of these easy Recipes and order the masalas to cook the next exciting dish at home.
