Scrumptious healthy food is my passion. But I don't believe you need to slave to achieve it. I started these spice kits for my own hectic lifestyle. Then friends started to ask for them. So...it made sense to share them with everyone.
I started to learn to cook at a very young age. On my 8th birthday, my mum declared
“If you don’t learn to cook, nobody will marry you!”
Having always been told that a woman's life was about getting married and having babies, I took my Mum’s statement quite seriously at the tender age of eight.
I later discovered the irony of that statement, as my Mum couldn’t cook a thing when she married my Dad. He taught her how to cook!
I have fond memories of my Chachi (Aunt) teaching me to make chapattis. My Chacha (uncle) refused to eat them because they weren’t round. So my Aunt grabbed a large metal bowl to use as a “pastry cutter” and ensure they conformed to the appropriate shape. That still makes me laugh.
Growing up I learnt a lot about cooking from my Dad. He was very exacting. It had to be just right, or it just wasn’t good enough. So I learnt not to settle for second best.
Fast forward to today…I still love cooking. And I have discovered so many more flavours from all over the world.
As much as I enjoy creating dishes from scratch, I rarely have the time. But I don’t want to consume hidden sugars and preservatives. So no processed food for me. I don’t believe in compromising on taste.
Creating Curry Spice Kits was the answer. Now I could enjoy amazing food from around the world quickly and easily.
There's a myth that curries are a guilty pleasure. We've all had that yellow coating of grease in a Friday night takeaway. My mission is to break that myth. There's no reason you can't have a delicious dinner any night of the week... without the unhealthy consequences. My friend tells me she can have these without the sins on her slimming plan. What's not to like?
So here are my promises to you…
No long lists of extra ingredients
Quick, just 15 minutes preparation time.
All suitable for a vegetarian or vegan diet.
I hope you enjoy my Spice Kits. Each one takes a bit of time to develop, but I will keep adding more. As I create new kits, I’ll need your feedback. I will randomly select people from my Facebook page, and send a sample for you to try. If you’d like to be on the list, please like my Facebook page.
I look forward to enjoying some good food together.
