"Dear Spices of India, Hi I have never cooked a curry before but after finding Spices of India on line decided to jump in at the deep end and cook a curry for a group of 16 friends. I picked my recipes from your site, placed an order for the spices etc which which was delivered as promised. We had a fantastic meal the night was highly successful and needless to say I have passed on the detials of your site to my friends. I think now the traditional BBQs in England could be replaced with a Curry Night its much more fun and we dont have to worry about the great British weather! Thank you again for a wonderful service."
