Kiraana was born as a need to introduce the culinary richness of India. India is a vast country with it's own unique culture and language of food, no matter which direction you go. One can't say they have eaten or seen everything in India if they just went to one state or region. My aim is to bring this knowledge of it's vastness, diversity and ancient food wisdom to Australian kitchens. I hand-blend delicious regional spice blends that can be used to make many Indian or non-Indian recipes and pantry blends that are easy to cook and are very wholesome.
DELICIOUS. AROMATIC. VITALITY.
I believe that food should be delicious, so you have a loving relation with food. It should be aromatic, so your senses draws you towards it but most importantly it should create vitality, so you have a sound mind & body.
I hope you enjoy these blends as much as we have enjoyed creating them for you. I also hope these blends will bring you one step closer to real Indian cuisine or should I say cuisines of India.
What does Kiraana mean?
Kiraana in hindi means 'a small family owned shop selling sundry items'. They are the lifelines of India, every nook & cranny has a Kiraana shop where one can buy any daily use items. Even the arrivals of giant supermarkets couldn't take away the charm of small Kiraana shops. You run out of eggs, bread, pulses or detergent you run to the Kiraana shop, There's probably nothing you can't find in these dingy little shops.
