She cleans and blends the spices as it was perfected hundreds of years ago. The recipes of her blends have been handed down from generations to generations and have been traced back 300 years.

We only selects the finest spices to make our Gluten Free blends. After receiving the spices in our facility each spice goes through a rigorous cleaning process. We sieve the spices in 3 stages by hand, followed by removing all the remaining impurities. This is done by placing the spice on a large tray and sorting through the spices by Bhaskar and myself. This process takes many days before each spice is ready to be processed and packaged. We then blend the cleaned spices in specific proportions, using recipes that have been in our family for more than 300 years. Bhaskar and I package and present these spices in spice boxes. We use our cleaned spices to make delicious gourmet Indian curry mixes namely: Butter Chicken, Chicken Curry, Tikka Masala, Korma, Tandoori, Vindaloo, Aloo Gobi, Chana Masala, Daal, Spicy Fish, Mango Salsa and Pakora. We also provide the spice blends (Garam Masala, Thana Jeeroo and Baking Spice). We provide recipes to use these spices in the 5 cookbooks that Daksha has published. Daksha’s newest edition is called “Daksha’s Gourmet Kitchen”. Our Chai Spice is another traditional recipe, handed down from generation to generation, that we follow. This spice blend takes long to make as special care is taken in cleaning and grinding the spices to a very fine powder. Using our Chai Spice we make a Chai Latte mix. This is an instant mix to make a delicious Caffeine free Chai Latte. We want to share with the world good quality Indian cuisine and a way of cooking that has been enjoyed for centuries; and also to introduce spices for a healthy lifestyle. We pride ourselves in making products that are All Natural, with No MSG, No Preservatives, Gluten Free, No Salt and No Allergens. We are the owners and creators of “Daksha’s Gourmet Spices” products.
