SPICY AND COLORFUL | India – Country of spices. It is hardly surprising that the diversity of this vast subcontinent is reflected in its countless spices, herbs and masalas.
India’s cuisine is unthinkable without its rich spice culture. The classical cuisine of India however, does not exist. Too big the country, too big the religious and cultural history. Yet, there is one common denominator: The six main spices haldi (turmeric), jeera (cumin), mustard seeds, dhania (coriander), fennel seeds and methi seeds (fenugreek seeds) form the core ingredients. They refine 90 percent of all Indian specialties.
Aggarwal offers a wide range of spices. As a powder or whole. Pure or as a mixture. It is with the import of spices that the company started very small. Later, rice and lentils were added.
Spring brings many delicious things to eat such as rhubarb, aspargus and spinach but nothing beats the succulent Alphonso mangoes with their distinctive aroma. During its short period from mid march until mid june the Alphonso mango season becomes a national obsession in India comparable to the Cricket and Bollywood mania. From mid April you will get the chance to find those unique mangoes in our stores as well.
