"Dear Spices of India, I hadn't been able to get Indian Sweets or pakoras since moving to North Wales some nine years ago, that was until last week when I found your site and placed my first order with you. Since then I have placed another order for 20 packets of Shan Pakora and Bhajia mix and 4 Shan Shami Kebab mix. Arrived the next day. The pakoras were so easy to make and tasted better and fresher than the ones I used to get from Southall and I never thought I'd be saying that!! And the boxes of Indian mixed sweets were simply as good as they can get. Many thanks."
