As an eight-year-old, I spent many evenings in our blue-tiled kitchen watching Mum cook dinner. I’d sit on the rickety wooden chair my grandfather had inherited, revising general knowledge facts...
From my grandmother Dolly, I inherited a lifelong love for Indian food.
Hearty, bursting with flavours, her food always tasted like a tight hug from home. If they can taste the love, they will love the taste, she taught us.
But, cooking Indian at home always felt tedious and hard.
Growing up in New Zealand, I always ended up just getting a takeaway. It took moving back to India, starting a food blog and experimenting (many, many times) with spices to understand how to balance Indian flavours.
My most important lesson? A handful of Indian flavours can make all my everyday meals taste better!
Thank you for bringing the super delicious Cashew Korma to our lives, it kept my super fussy husband very happy… we used three heaped tablespoons with zucchini, onions, mushrooms and leftover roast chicken and a little can of coconut milk and dinner was on the table in the time it took to cook the basmati rice - super quick and super tasty… can’t wait to try the Coastal Curry next!
This is our family all time favorite. My daughter and her husband are foodies. They rave about this Paste!
super quick delivery, thank you. I am loving Masala Dabba
Just purchased our chutney and tandoori this morning! Deliciously amazing!!!
I overdosed just a little (!) and man it’s delicious. No hint of ‘storeboughtness’. So much so I might smear some inside my pestle and mortar for kudos next dinner party ;)
Loved the fresh flavours of the Indian Everyday paste... just the right blend of spicy, freshness and heat. Super easy to make dinner in a hurry!
I love all the jars of deliciousness. Plus, a great followup email with suggestions for cooking!
Delivered in recyclable packaging with plenty of suggestions for cooking. Definitely some new ideas for me. Really pleased I gave this a try!
Lamb shoulder marinated with tandoori paste and youghurt, slow cooked. Husband can't move after eating enough food for three people. Thank you!
I can't rate the Cashew Korma enough. I love spicy food but I could tell from the moment I opened the jar that this was going to taste delicious even though it had no chilli whatsoever in it.The smell when I was cooking it made me jealous of the wife and kids so after I ate mine I finished up what they couldn't eat. I wasn't disappointed, coming from the UK where we have many authentic curry options this for me was by far the best tasting curry I've had in 12 years living in NZ. And I made it
Added half a jar to some coconut cream, spinach + other veg and some chicken thighs for an absolutely delicious curry.
It has a very soft spicy note, super subtle so it's perfect even for those that don't like hot stuff.
This stuff is amazing. We have it on everything. Just a spoonful can make anything taste amazing. I was lucky enough to have a taste at the markets, bought a jar home, then my son and husband had a taste. The jar didn’t last long. Huge fan. Not sure our kitchen will go with this in the fridge. Give it just one taste and you’ll see what I mean.
Had this for the first time today. I added half a butter nut pumpkin (steamed) and some finely chopped silver beet. Spectacular. Thank you! Will be a regular in our house!
This is a must have in your pantry for when you are entertaining! Great dip to have with crackers, cheese or in a cheesey jalapeño toasty on a cold winters day!
Received my parcel within a couple of days of ordering. I have been eagerly waiting to try this for a long time but never got around to ordering it. I open the jar and oh my god, the fragrance of the paste took me back home to India! I have dying to make tandoori chicken, so I marinated it as per instructions for 2.5hrs. I was licking the spoon and dish I made the marinade in! So good! The resulting dish was a very succulent and tasty chicken. Everyone in the family and including the guests whom I cooked for, were raving for seconds and unfortunately I didn’t cook enough for another round of helping. Highly recommend and I know for sure I will be a regular customer to this specific product and brand. I can’t wait to try coastal curry paste next!
Our pastes are made using recipes passed down to us through friends and family. My husband and I do all the cooking and bottle filling, our children help with the packaging and Instagram posing (luckily we don't have to pay them just yet).
Made with love
We put the time and care at our end to make 'cooking from scratch' easy at your end. Our spices are sourced locally. We then individually dry-roast them to extract their full flavour before cooking our pastes to ensure they are safe to eat direct from the jar!
With Dolly Mumma we want to make it easy to cook flavourful hearty meals. From a dahl to a prawn stir-fry, from saag paneer to a Sunday roast and from a light yoghurt dressing to a yummy curry, our versatile pastes will level up all your meals.
