The first time I realized how special this dish was when I was just 4 or 5 years old in India. My father was the Principal of a Christian boarding school in Uttar Pradesh. As I recall, my dad was out of town, probably on a work related trip. My mom decided that we would just eat leftovers for dinner. We had a young 21 year old student missionary from the U.S. - Mickey, staying with us. I think he was the first blond haired, blue eyed person I had seen, not to mention his height of 6 feet. In a family where the “tall” adults topped of at 5’2”, it was quite interesting.  He talked about his beautiful girlfriend back in the U..S.. I think her name was Deanne. This concept of having a boyfriend or girlfriend being together without being married was also something I couldn’t wrap my head around at that time in India. It was just inconceivable. I remember staring at him with wide teacup eyes as I found all this SO very fascinating.
This potato curry that my mom made was Mickey’s favorite dish. He absolutely loved it. That evening, Mickey asked my mom if we were having potato curry and chapatis for dinner. She said something about leftovers . Apparently he wasn’t crazy about what we had for leftovers so he asked my mom if he could help her cook it . I remember thinking, “It’s just potato curry, we have it all the time. What’s the big deal ??” I think my poor tired mom obliged and cooked the dish for Mickey. 😃 She thought it was quite funny to crave such simple food 😂. Well, NOW I DO know what the BIG DEAL about this dish is ! 
 
On those days you want something warm, comforting and vegan/ vegetarian. Nothing beats the flavors of this simple South Indian homemade potato curry made with my Grandma’s “secret” homemade Andhra curry powder and other spices ! Adding egg to it is optional. However, I just love how well it melds all the flavors together and takes the edge off of spicy 🌶 heat.
Pair it with Naan, chapatis or rice . Enjoy eating this very special homemade dish ! 😋.

Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you for your AWESOME review! I'm SO delighted that you loved my Grandma's Spicy Chicken Curry seasoning kit and that it met your expectations. I will let my mom know that you loved her recipe. I'm sure she will be thrilled. Thank you SO much! Cheers Priya

Wow! So Tasty!

What a fantastic way to bring Indian Cuisine into my home. Priya, your Tikka Masala Seasoning packets leave me speechless! Thank you so much for taking the step to open this business offering these amazing tastes into everyone's home. Kept me going back for 2nd and 3rd helpings! Very dangerous for singles households. Once my four kits are all gone, I will absolutely be ordering four more! Thanks 10 times more! - Fred

Dear Frederick,
I absolutely loved your review. My family got a good chuckle out of it because we could relate to going back for 2nds and 3rd helpings of chicken tikka masala. I am so glad our seasonings brought you joy with this dish. Thank YOU for your awesome review. Cheers Priya

A fabulous dish!

I saw Priya profiled in a newspaper article and decided to try her recipe. It was wonderful - scrumptious flavors and very easy to follow. It makes a lot of sauce that can be used with other proteins and veggies - a dish that keeps on giving! So glad I gave it a try.

Hi Victoria,
I am absolutely thrilled that you loved my chicken tikka masala seasonings, recipe and tips to maximize the dish. Thank you SO much for your detailed and thoughtful review. We celebrated with a happy dance. Cheers Priya

Husband loved it!

I was taken by your ad that said I could adjust the spice level. I bought the Chicken Tikka Masala and the Butter Chicken mixes. I made the Tikka Masala for my husband, who cannot tolerate much heat, and made it without adding any jalapeño. He LOVED it. After dinner he came in and asked for a small bowl of rice with the sauce on it. He asked me to order more immediately! Thank you for making this spice mix so easily adaptable for people like my husband, who can’t enjoy spicy hot foods, but love the flavors of this dish. I think we are about to be regular customers! (PS—I enjoyed it as well!)

Hi Evelyn,
Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review. Oh my gosh!! I’m absolutely thrilled that your husband enjoyed the chicken tikka masala and that you did too.
It takes me 3-4 months to perfect a recipe and customize the spicy heat. So it’s fulfilling to know that I was able to help you make Indian food that you both loved.

Thank you for sharing your experience. It means a lot to me and my business.

Wonderful company!!

I read about this company in my local paper and was super excited to order some of the spice kits for my daughter’s birthday. She LOVES Indian food and makes it occasionally, but because the spice preparation can be daunting and ordering spices online can result in pounds of something you may not use in your lifetime, my daughter did not make her own very often. What a brilliant idea to sell spice packets for those of us who don’t want to buy a ton of exotic spices but want to cook our own Indian food! Oh - and the gift decoration was gorgeous. Very personal service. Highly recommend!

Hi Barbara,
Thank you SO much for your thoughtful and AWESOME review ! The reason I started this company was to make it easier to cook Indian food. I'm thrilled in particular that you are enjoying our unique home cooking in your home. I'm so glad you, your daughter and family loved our gift decorations. It truly was made with love from our family to yours. :-). Thanks again. Wishing you all the best. Cheers ~ Priya
