Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Best By Date?
A Best By Date is NOT an expiration date. A Best By Date serves as a "suggestion" for when a product will be of best flavor or quality. It is not a purchase or safety date. We sell products past their Best By date for a minimal discount. This offers you savings on a product which is still safe and usable for a long time. Best By Dates on USDA.gov

Garam masala is a warming spice blend from India. All of the spices are toasted before ground, and the blend has a warming effect on the body.
Culinary Uses: Garam masala is well suited for meat dishes, and is fried in ghee before any other ingredients are added. Alternatively, the spice is typically added at the end of cooking, or after serving. Garam masala is used in chicken dishes and rice dishes. The spice is delicious with autumn favorites, like baked squash.
MARINADE: put all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Season with salt to taste. Put chicken and marinade in a container, mix thoroughly, cover and put in the fridge to marinate overnight (or at least 3 hours). Preheat oven to 400ºF. Thread chicken cubes onto skewers and put them on a cookie sheet or baking tray. Roast for 15-20 minutes uncovered, until the chicken is cooked thoroughly and browned on the edges. Serve with wedges of lemon.
Hi! I'm Sandeep.
I travel to India, Asia, South America, and Europe to bring you back some of the most pristine, pure, organic clean ingredients in the world. All the products you'll find here at Pure Indian Foods are ones that me and my family use personally.
My family has been making ghee since 1889. Today, my wife, Nalini (aka "The Ghee Lady"), carries on this tradition. She still makes all the ghee and tightens every jar by hand.
We are passionate about bringing you traditional and nourishing foods. It's our labor of love and service to human-kind. Thank you for supporting our small family business.
