"Dear Spices of India, Though I first saw this website a couple of months ago, I was still not comfortable ordering food online. I thought it is not the best way to do. Finally when I grew desperate and got fed up searching for Priya Pickles in the local departmental stores, I thought i will give it a shot. I was thinking the parcel would arrive after 2 days. Guess what!? It arrives the very next day with all the ingredients packed neatly.Thanks a lot to you guys for making this so simple. Now on, I know where to go when i miss home food!!"
