Spicy Beef Curry

Great dish! Directions were detailed on and easy to follow.

Thank you for your AWESOME feedback. We are thrilled you enjoyed our Spicy Beef Curry!

Delicious Ground Beef (Keema) Curry!

Wow! Every time I make dinner with one of your spice packs Priya, it always turns out incredibly delicious! This was my first time cooking the Ground Beef (Keema) Curry. We absolutely loved it! The taste is authentic and delicious! The instructions are easy to follow, and the ingredients are easy to find at any local grocery store (added to your spice mixes). We will definitely be ordering this pack in our next order! I can’t wait to try all of your recipes & packs! Thank you for selling such good quality and easy to make products!

Hi Sarah,
Thank you SO much for the thoughtful 5 star review. I'm so thrilled that you enjoyed my Ground Beef (Keema) seasonings and were able to easily find all the fresh ingredients at your local grocery store. I appreciate you supporting my small business with your AWESOME review. Cheers, Priya

Tikka Masala Creativity

I tried two of Priya's samples while she was doing a demo at Whole Foods in Pittsburgh and was impressed by the flavor of her spice blends and also that she was the founder of her small business. I bought the Tikka Masala packet and couldn't wait to try it at home. I decided to use some leftover roasted lamb in place of chicken and added butternut squash and some raisins for a twist. I did the stove top method and boy did it turn out to be a wonderful dish. It is hard to imagine it being better doing the overnight marinade and then oven roasting but I want to try it this way to compare. My house smelled wonderful for a couple of days actually. This was definitely the most flavorful Tikka Masala I have had outside of a quality Indian restaurant and I would say if done the more traditional way it may even be better than what I have experienced at any restaurant. Great job Priya on your spice blending mastery and I can't wait to try other packets. Easy and enjoyable. A perfect match.

Hello Mike,

OMG! I LOVE your detailed and thoughtful review. I'm so thrilled that you put your own twist to my chicken tikka masala seasoning blend and used it with leftover roasted lamb instead. I actually have some leftover roasted leg of lamb in the fridge (for real!) and was wondering what to do with it. Now I know how I will use it. Thank you for that delicious idea. ! Most of all, thank you for wonderful 5 star review. It sure made my day . I appreciate you.
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy New Year.
Cheers,
Priya

Great Flavor

I love india food. Thanks for making it easier to make it at home!

Hi Gigi,

Happy Holidays! Thank you for your wonderful review. I appreciate you taking the time to write this review. .I'm so thrilled I help you make Indian food easily at home.
Cheers

Fantastic product!

I enjoy all the Anar kits. This Spicy Chicken Marinade kit is one of my favorites. It's easy to make and gives my chicken a wonderful flavor. Just the right amount of spice for my taste. If you want something a bit less spicy, jus follow the cooking tips from What that come with the product. Yum!

Hi Sandy,

Thank you SO much for your detailed and thoughtful review. I'm SO thrilled that my spicy baked chicken (previously known as Spicy Chicken Marinade) hits the mark for you. I really appreciate your AWESOME review. Doing a happy dance. Cheers, Priya

Got the kids to eat vegetables

I have a difficult time getting my kids to eat vegetables, but they LOVE this spice mix. I work full time from home, so I have zero time for dinner. I have been able to basically make takeout (which is around $100 for our large family) 2 times a week with this mix! With grocery store red onions, this is what I did:

3PM: Slow cook red onions on low
4PM: Add large package frozen spinach. Add can of coconut milk. Air fry cubed extra firm tofu. Make basmati rice in the rice cooker.
5PM: Added tofu to spinach.
5:30: Dinner!

I don't remember when I added the spice packets (there were two), because I recycled the packets with the instructions. :)

I made it twice this way, and everybody loved it. The small one ate, even though it was spicy. Even though this isn't authentic, I might try it with sweet potatoes and spinach? I'm trying to eat more veggies. I'm online getting more!

Hi Carissa,
Thank you for leaving SUCH a thoughtful and detailed review for this recipe. I'm so excited that your kids are eating their veggies as I'm just learning to eat mine. :-) I'm glad I can help make life a little easier for you. Thanks again for your thoughtfulness. You made my day.

Great versatility!

Grandma’s Spicy Chicken has always been a family favorite and just tonight expanded the recipes to make with this seasoning kit using it for pork tenderloin. Excellent dish with no modifications just substituting the protein. We love Anar gourmet foods!

Hi Alexis, Thank you for your glowing and thoughtful five star review. I love that you have expanded the use of this seasoning kit. Thanks for the great idea on using these seasonings with pork tenderloin. I will try it out myself. Most of all, thank you for sharing your delicious experience.

Indian cooking make easy

I love the Anar spice packets with easy to follow instructions for a delicious Indian meal I cooked at home. Thank you!

Hi Max,
I'm so thrilled that you loved my seasoning kits. Thank you for your thoughtfulness in sharing your experience. It means a world to my small women owned business.

Thank you.

Cheers,
Priya

Delicious!

We loved the Chicken Tikka Masala! It will definitely be put on our repeat list! Flavors are delicious!

Hi Marie, I'm so thrilled you loved our most popular seasoning kit. Thank you for sharing your delicious experience with your thoughtful review. I appreciate it. !!

Authentically Delicious

I love these spices as I could never create these flavors without them. The personal note that accompanied them was especially helpful, providing essential tips.

My new favorite meal

The seafood curry tasted amazing (fresh and frozen) and also had easy-to-follow instructions which made the whole process super simple and enjoyable! It's my new favorite meal, and I will definitely be ordering more in the future!!

Loved the Tikka Masala

The Tikka Masala recipe was easy to follow and delicious. We are a family of two so even with a second helping we were able to freeze enough for another meal.

Never Worry About Dinner Again!

Thanks to Anar Gourmet, I never have to worry about the Indian cuisine I serve. The Lamb Curry dish is always a crowd pleaser! Why wouldn’t it be, easy instructions and so easy! Delicious, easy, and did I mention delicious?

Thank you Theresa for your awesome review!! I appreciate it. So thrilled that you love my Lamb curry and that I have made the process easy for you.

Wow. This was amazing!

I bought a few items at the Pittsburgh Home Show and finally used made this.. It was truly.superb. Better than any restaurant! Can't wait to try more. (and it looks exactly like the picture)

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

Butter Chicken

Just arrived back home in PGH from a 10 year retirement vacation in Sarasota, Fl. Tandoor was our go-to Indian restaurant in Sarasota and Butter Chicken was our favorite dish. Tonight we made Anar's Butter Chicken Seasoning Kit and it is phenomenal! Follow the receipe and tone down the spice and you'll be in for a real treat!

Hi Marlene,
OMG! Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review. I am absolutely thrilled you enjoyed the meal with our butter chicken seasoning kit. What a treat for us to hear about your delicious experience.

Thanks for the prompt delivery of the item.
I read about you in a local paper in Pittsburgh. What intrigued me was the name. One of my best friends in Scotland has his last name, Narsapur.
He was happy and said “finally they have discovered what good taste is”.
Good luck in your venture.

Hi Nair,
I'm absolutely thrilled we were able to meet your expectations for delivery and that you loved our Indian Seasoning kits. I love how you connected the article about our company to your best friend Narsapur in Scotland. That is so cool! It IS a small wonderful world. I may be biased but I tend to agree with him that good taste does come from Narsapur. :-) Thank you for your wonderful review, kind wishes and sharing this fun and entertaining story.
Best wishes to you and your from Priya and the Anar Gourmet Foods family.
