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!
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
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!
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.
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.
The seasoning was great and directions were very easy to follow.
AWESOME!! Thank you for your thoughtful review Robert. We are absolutely thrilled you loved mom's chicken curry.
I am not a good cook and I don't like cooking.... but I enjoyed making the curry and it turned out delish! My guests were surprised. :)
This chicken marinade is amazing! Marinate overnight is best and the chicken is crispy, moist, and so flavorful with just the right amount of heat! My whole family loves it - have only used chicken thighs, need to try with bone in, skin on chicken breast too!
Thank you Kim for this thoughtful and AWESOME review along with your gorgeous mouthwatering photos! I am SO delighted that you and your family love my chicken marinade seasoning kit. Good to know that the seasoning kit can used with both boneless vs. bone-in chicken thighs. Great tip! Thanks again for taking the time to write such a wonderful review ! I appreciate you !
Made tikka masala for a family get together. Everyone raved about the dinner. It’s absolutely delicious !!!
Angela, We are absolutely thrilled that you and your family love our tikka seasoning blend. Most of all we are delighted that it brought you so much joy. Thank you for sharing your experience with us.
I don’t like playing by the rules hence I decided to make a classic from the Hyderabadi cuisine - Bagara Baingan ( tempered eggplants) and my world did that taste yumm .. I used this spice and it blew life into the eggplant . Love these blends from Anar ..!!!
OMG! I am so touched by your review Debashis! I'm a huge fan of your culinary skills & creative Indian and Indian fusion recipes (along with the 10K + fans you have on Instagram @debscraftycuisine). I'm so honored that you love incorporating my seasoning blends into your recipes. Thank you so much for your five star review! I totally made my day. Cheers, Priya
I love fusion and have made a Turkish dish Cilbir , using this and it tasted heavenly . Thanks to these wonderfully hand curated blends from Anar.
My favorite and goto blends always ..!!!
Absolutely thrilled to be the GO TO seasoning blends for the culinary maestro @Debscraftycuisine on Instagram with 10K + followers.. What an honor! Thank you so much for your 5 star review. I appreciate it! Cheers,
I can bake and I can microwave. I cannot cook. Strike that. I can now cook. Anar seasoning packs make it easy easy easy - and they are delicious delicious delicious!! Originally purchased to support Anar Gourmet Foods because it is a woman-owned business. Now I buy so I can easily prepare healthy meals... and so I can now say I can cook!!
While I already have Indian spices at home and cook my own dishes, these spice packs are so convenient, especially if you quickly marinate the meat and pop it in the fridge overnight so it reduces cook time the day after - great for a busy week night. Not to mention the food is incredibly DELICIOUS! I love the Butter Chicken version - so much tastier than what you typically receive in a regular Indian restaurant. Also, if you're traveling or doing the Airbnb thing, it's so convenient to grab a few packs to make amazing dinners while away from home.
Thank you SO much for your thoughtful and AWESOME review. I am thrilled that you love ❤️ our spice packs and that they make cooking easy for you! The Butter Chicken spice packet is one of our favorites too! Love that you use the spice packets on vacation because we do the exact same thing ! Thank you for sharing your feedback. It is much appreciated!
Rice and Lentil soup with Omelette is one of our favorite meals. So very delicious and very nutritious, with all the ingredients in one spice packet, it was so very easy to make and time saving. Thanks so very much Anargourmetfoods.
Thank you SO much mom and dad for this review! Most of all, thank you for your yummy Dhal recipe that we can share for everyone to enjoy. So glad this kit makes it easier for you to cook at home. PLEASE let me just send them to you, no need to buy them from me !! Love you both very much!
Taste like chicken curry from a top-notch Indian restaurant!
Thank you SO much Bob for your AWESOME review! Love that we meet your expectations of a top notch restaurant!
I LOVE Priya’s spice blends. They are easy to make and restaurant quality in the comfort of home!!! I stumbled upon them at a Whole Foods in Pittsburgh a few years ago while visiting my parents, and I’m so glad I did! The website makes ordering super easy and shipping is fast. I always look forward to my orders!!! Thank you Priya and Anar gourmet for bringing your delicious recipes to rural Colorado!!
Thank you SO much for your thoughtful and lovely review! I”m SO thrilled that you are enjoying my seasoning blends. I can’t believe they made their way to rural Colorado to your home, that’s SO exciting! HAPPY DANCE ! Best of all, I”m so happy that they bring you joy and yummy meals to your home.

These are absolutely delicious meals and easy to make!!
Thank you for your AWESOME thoughtful review. I appreciate you taking the time to write it. I am absolutely thrilled that you love my Ground Beef recipe. I love that my food brings joy to you and your family at the dinner table.
Thank you for brightening our day.
My wife and I met you as you were setting up at Market District on Sunday morning. We purchased one of all the seasoning kits you had there.
Marcie made the Chicken Tikka Masala over basmati for dinner on Monday. It was delicious! We are so happy we ran into you and purchased your products. We are anxious to try the others.
As you indicated it makes a plentiful amount so we have enough for leftovers. Also we had extra sauce so the next day for dinner I simmered wild shrimp in the sauce and served it over mashed butternut and sweet potatoes. That too was very good.
Thank you Vince and Marcie for your AWESOME review! We are delighted that you loved our Chicken Tikka Masala seasoning kit. We especially LOVE your creative fusion Indian twist of using wild shrimp with the chicken tikka masala sauce over mashed butternut and sweet potatoes. It's ultimate comfort food! YUMMY !
Thank you for another amazing recipe! I made this using your recipe for seafood stew and it was incredible! It was such a treat and so easy to make. I will definitely be ordering another packet to make again!
Had my first experience making Indian food and so appreciated the kits! Made chicken tikka masala and saag paneer, and they were both excellent. And, they were even better heated up as left overs! Will definitely buy again!
I am SO very thrilled that you had an AMAZING experience with both the chicken tikka masala and saag paneer kits. We are delighted that you love our easy Indian home cooking made with love! Thank you so much for your thoughtful and awesome review!
Priya is a fabulous instructor. Very funny, great directions, always checking to make sure I was following along. Food was also very amazing! Totally enjoyed the class. Will do it again!
Annette!!! It was such a pleasure to have you in class. I thoroughly enjoyed your company. I am quite delighted that your very first experience of cooking an entire Indian meal of main entrée and accompaniment (Chicken Tikka Masala and coconut rice) was a success! Thank you for your wonderful review :-).
Why bother trying your own when this is so easy? . Delicious!
Thank you so much for your awesome review! I’m delighted that you loved my chicken tikka masala seasoning kit. My vision was to make this dish super easy to make and skip the hassle to help making Indian food easier. So I’m thrilled that I made it easy for you to make this dish. I appreciate the feedback !
Another incredible seasoning mix from Anar Gourmet Foods! This Chickpea Curry was absolutely delicious with easy to follow directions! All of their products are excellent quality, and the customer service is impeccable. Can’t wait to try more of their seasoning mixes!
Loved our chicken curry dinner. I decided to do the spicy version, but modified it slightly with a little more yogurt in step 1 turning down the spice just a notch. It was perfect! I appreciate the options for level of spice. I will be ordering more.
I learned about Anar through a WBEC (women owned businesses) showcase. My family loves Indian food. I ordered the chicken tikka masala spice mix. I made the meal this week and it was the best! Clear directions, GREAT flavor. I am a fan! I am stocking up.
