Taste the love. Love the taste.
From my grandmother Dolly, I inherited a life-long love for food.
Hearty, bursting with flavour, the food she cooked for me always felt like a tight hug from home.
Despite this early introduction to great Indian flavours, when it came to cooking Indian at home, I was always intimidated. Which spices was I meant to dry roast and which worked best when added last? It felt easier to just get 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 and cook a great meal. My most important lesson? A handful of Indian spices can make anything taste better, whether that's a curry or a spiced mayonnaise! My second lesson? Taking my time to prepare a handful of spice blends on an off day would cook me a week's worth of meals! Finally, I could cook meals like Dolly Mumma made, that too in a jiffy.
I want to share this magic with you.
HAPPY TUMMY REPORT
I want everyone to try your Tandoori paste. It is divine!
Dolly Mumma's pastes are great for all your cooking. Very easy to use. I'm not a fan of spicy food but these pastes hit just the right spot and gave all my meals a wonderful flavour.
The best thing about Dolly Mumma is that all the hard work is done for you. They deliver beautifully balanced flavours every time and I love how versatile the whole range is!
Awesome, authentic tasting curry pastes that are full of flavour. They make everything you cook a little bit special. I won't buy supermarket pastes again!
Dolly Mumma is the absolute best. If you enjoy curries, this is the real deal. I have a bottle forever in my fridge!
Oh my God. Dolly Mumma's spiced ghee has transformed all my keto meals from boring to brilliant.
Taste the love.
Our pastes are cooked with love. By love we mean patience. We source all our whole spices from local suppliers. These are then individually dry roasted to extract their full flavour. We then blend our pastes using recipes passed down to me by my grandmum and my friends' grandmothers. All our pastes are pre-cooked which make them safe to use as-is on pita's, sandwiches or inside dips. We even smoke our Tandoori paste with charcoal for that perfect smoky taste that's hard to achieve at home.
We put the time and care at our end to make cooking from "scratch" easy at your end.
Love the Taste.
With Dolly Mumma, we want you to cook the hearty meals you remember from your childhood. But we want to make packing in that flavour easy!
From a dahl to a prawn noodle stir-fry, from saag paneer to a Sunday roast and from a light yogurt dressing to a lip-smacking curry, our versatile pastes will level up all your meals.
Come, have a taste of the real India.
