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!
Our children (almost 2 and 3.5) have always enjoyed korma but recently haven’t wanted to eat it when it’s served, so I thought I would try this instead. It was such a big hit. The youngest even started drinking the sauce, she liked it so much.
We brought a selection of pastes on our camping trip and got all sorts of meals out of it not just meat curries on rice. Like this stuffed naan recipe: https://www.mastercook.com/app/recipe/WebRecipeDetails?recipeId=25863861 - just substitute the paste. Delicious and done in a frypan!
This paste is absolutely devine!! Super flavourful and goes with so much
It was fun watching Perzen cooking and then I made the wafer per eedu for dinner that night and threw in some extra veggies as she suggested. Delicious! and remarkably easy. Perzen has an effortless manner and is a really good communicator. Thanks!
I really enjoyed the class and being able to cook alongside Perzen. I especially loved the potato and egg dish and have made that many times since the class. Would be keen to do more online cook along classes. They are a good length and very informative. Thank you
Supercool, if I had more bench space I would have 2...maybe I'll make room!
I love just making it up as I go...so far a great dahla and 3 curries. Thanks heaps!
There are no words worthy of expressing how delicious the cashew korma is! You really must try it! It's a taste sensation and a family favourite. Add to the magic that it's super fast and easy to cook. You should always have one in the fridge!
All my friends are envious - and Australian online contacts are scouring Indian shops there to get these as Christmas gifts!
Gorgeous to look at with the spices all on display, simple to use when you do that 'fry off for just 10 seconds' recipe - and will last for ever! - I immediately had mine engraved with my name... Spice selections great too... the Dhansak Masala is wonderful... also love the cumin-coriander grind, slightly coarse like a hand-mix in a mortar and pestle. Absolutely recommend this! I already know I can't cook now without it!
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!
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.
