    As a brand new customer, from the curry capitol of the U K to the surf coast of Victoria, I was delighted with my treatment from order to almost instant delivery; and the quality of produce is unbelievable. I favour recipes from the N W of India and so use,cardamom, fennel, and fenugreek along with many others but these three, all ground, I have struggled to source. Not any more. Oh and the Kashmiri chillies … awesome!!!
    Look forward to future purchases.
    Thank You Liz
