Once you have tested an authentic spice mix, the store bought generic mixes won’t do it for you. As someone who grew up with spices, this is not a big mystery. Mrunal’s unique recipe of the mix and freshness are the differentiators. Consider a popular spice mix, Garam Masala. Did you know that Garam Masala may include anything from 8-17 different ingredients? Based on the quantity of each ingredient used in a recipe, the variations are almost infinite. No wonder a taste you liked is hard to duplicate without recreating the exact spice mix. Freshness is another critical component. It is no secret that whole spices have longer shelf life than ground spices.
We want you to use Mrunal’s secret to flavorful cooking. You can now buy unique spice mixes, including our own Garam Masala. Mrunal’s garam masala recipe is actually a family recipe a couple generations old. Enough recipes have been cooked with this unique Garam Masala to know how good it is. Try once, and we are confident that you would like to buy again. It is critical that you use the Garam Masala when it is fresh just like Mrunal does.
Mrunal has also created a spice blend, Za’atar, her take on a well-known middle eastern spice. Za’atar is a great spice blend to use as seasoning on salads and meat dishes like kababs. A simple, but probably the best way to enjoy Za’atar is to eat a pita bread that is dipped in a mixture of olive oil and Za’atar.
Just like Garam Masala, Za’atar may include 3-6 different ingredients. Also, the flavor of the spice is defined by the quantity of each ingredient in the blend. Mrunal tried several recipes to then pick the best recipe that represents herbaceous and tart sumac flavor.
Mrunal makes her spice blends by buying the best ingredients money can buy. She makes small batches, ensuring that the spices shipped to you are freshly made. We sell only in a small quantity; Garam Masala is sold in a 1.2 Oz. spice jar, while the Za’atar is sold in a 1.1 Oz. spice jar. A spice jar can last for about 6 months for cooking 6-7 recipes while maintaining freshness.
