Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, Many thanks for a great service! I was brought up in Birmingham, home of the Balti, but moved to Cornwall 15 years ago. Gorgeous here it might be, but I missed my weekly Balti fix, and had to resort to making my own, usually from a jar, or the mass produced pastes available in supermarkets. All I could taste was vinegar, (not nice) but with the help of your website, and the availability of fresh ingredients, and authentic spices, and useful recipe tips, I'm now making my own curries, equal in taste and quality of any I've eaten in Birmingham restaurants. I ordered fresh greens, and other ingredients late Monday evening, and they arrived early Wednesday morning. My bunches of Methi leaves were green fresh, and fragrant, and in excellent condition. Well done!! A great service I will certainly be reccommending to friends and family."
