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 useable for a long time. 

Best By Dates on USDA.gov

Use the Food Keeper App on FoodSafety.gov to determine approximately how soon you should consume something after Best By Date.

Kashmir is a land graced with an unparalleled landscape of natural beauty. To many, it’s “heaven on Earth”, a natural, mesmerizing paradise surrounded by the Himalayas and brimming with vast lakes and abundant flora and fauna. The climate is largely influenced by the mountains. Temperatures vary greatly, ranging from extreme cold in Ladakh to moderate in Kashmir and sub-tropical in Jammu. Numerous flowers, herbs and medicinal plants grow in Kashmir as do maple and apple trees, birch trees and the lovely Chinar tree.

If you've been looking for Kashmiri Mirch or Degi Mirch, then look no further. This is pure Kashmiri Chili Powder. The Kashmiri Red Chili is well-known for it's vibrant red hue. It is used for for it's coloring properties rather than it's heat. It tastes like a slightly spicy paprika. The heat-tone would still be classified as mild, but it possesses a lingering warmth. The warmth is similar to how cinnamon, cumin, or clove feel warm, but not exactly spicy.

It is most commonly used in curries, and it's what gives tandoori chicken it's signature color. It is also delicious with fruits and cheeses - adding color and a little peppy flavor.



Each jar is carefully weighed and filled by hand.

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.
