About Masala Mama

  • Made with traditional recipes that give you delicious and fresh home made taste, with no preservatives and all natural goodness.

Very tasty and super easy! It’s great to be able to cook up an authentic Indian meal in a matter of minutes!

Fantastic! took no time at all and was one of the most delicious curries. Highly highly recommend this simmer sauce. Impossible to mess up and ends up tasting as though you slaved hours over it.
— Daniel Radcliffe
  • Each is hand-crafted for a specific dish, and includes spice sachets, recipe, and shopping list of fresh ingredients.  With 12 kits to choose from, you will never lack for variety in your meals. 

  • Eliminates guesswork and never lets you go wrong, because the spices are pre-measured and the recipe tells you when to add them.

  • No experience with Indian cooking or additional spices are needed. You'll be amazed at how simple it is to make the most complicated dishes.

So easy to make. The directions were very clear and the taste was delicious! Using the fresh spice packets as against the store bought masala box made all the difference. Will definitely try again.

Garam Masala

The classic 10-spice Garam Masala blend is organic, fresh ground in-house, and delicious sprinkled in everything from dips to dishes to desserts!

Tandoori Masala

An aristocratic blend of 13 spices traditionally used in North India by royalty and commoners alike, Tandoori Masala can be used with chicken, fish, shrimp, paneer or vegetables.

Magic Curry Powder

Our take on traditional Indian "curry powder" magically transforms any dish.  Try it as a meat rub, roasted with cauliflower or broccoli, or even sprinkled on popcorn!

Excellent spice for chicken and other dishes.
