There's something mysterious about Indian cooking: aromatic spices, colorful curries simmering, golden oils popping and hissing. Unfortunately, for many, the experience of Indian cuisine begins and ends at the restaurant doors. But this exotic flavor profile does not have to remain an enigma thanks to Modern Day Masala.
The online retailer of organic Indian spices and rubs sells everything you need to master authentic Indian dishes. Modern Day Masala provides cooks with top-quality Indian spice mixtures to use at home. After an unfortunate meal at an Indian restaurant turned her off to the cuisine, founder Kristin Sharma was delighted when her mother-in-law's loving preparation of traditional Indian dishes reignited her appetite.
Inspired by her mother-in-law's recipes, Sharma developed Modern Day Masala's collection of fresh, robust, spices. Organic Butter Chicken Spice Mixture, Organic Keema Spice Mixture, and the staple of Indian cooking, Garam Masala (made from 10 unique dry-roasted organic spices) are just a few of Modern Day Masala's spice blends that embody the rich color and deep flavors of Indian cooking. With the addition of a few fresh ingredients, new and seasoned cooks alike can solve the mystery of Indian cuisine, and create a restaurant-quality meal in the process!
Modern Day Masala owner Kristin's journey to achieve her dream of entrepreneurship began with a dissatisfying Indian restaurant experience. After that she avoided Indian food entirely, until she first visited her Indian mother-in-law and found out how Indian cuisine could truly taste. Years of continuous kitchen experimentation led to cooking Indian food for friends, then to teaching friends how to do it themselves, and then to a full schedule of teaching Indian cooking classes. One day she pre-ground the spices for a class; her students found out and bought them all. Modern Day Masala, a small business with true family inspiration, was born.
