I've used other Indian spices before (we live in a town without an Indian restaurant, alas) and they were...okay. This is a gamechanger: spicy without being overpowering and so delicious my husband and I fought over the leftovers and licked the plates. Not only that, but when I requested some salt-free mixes, Priya not only started researching possibilities, but recommended the Hot South Indian Curry powder, which I ordered. That just arrived today, along with a handwritten thank you note and recipe suggestions. I cannot say enough good things about this company for its compassion and its amazing products.
