The inspiration behind Nanima’s Kitchen is my mother, who is always cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Nanima means maternal grandmother; my mother has been a Nanima for over thrity years and is still providing delicious food for our family gatherings. But cooking good Indian food is a full-time job, and pursuing my own career while raising my children gave me little time to follow my mother’s example.
I looked everywhere for sauces and pastes that would allow me to give my family the authentic taste of India. But I wasn’t keen on the range available in the shops, with their stale spices, artificial preservatives, emulsifiers and thickening agents. I wanted wholesome ingredients, freshly prepared, and soon realised the only way to obtain them would be to make them myself.
And so Nanima’s Kitchen was born. We know how busy, stressful and demanding modern life can be, leaving little time or energy for the long and laborious tasks of chopping onions, blending spices, making the paste and simmering the curry. At Nanima’s Kitchen we’ve done all the hard work for you and made a distinctive, authentic paste with all the flavour and freshness you’ve been looking for. All you have to do is add, meat, fish, vegetables or pulses, to produce a delicious home-made curry in less time than it takes to have a takeaway delivered! Just order some paste from our shop.
Our pastes are based entirely on the authentic flavours of India; they use only natural preservatives like oil and salt. As well as being suitable for vegans and vegetarians, they contain no flour, making them gluten-free.
Nanima’s Kitchen will, from time to time, revisit our recipes to improve on the combination of spices and flavours. We can also produce new pastes upon request.
Serving suggestions on this website are just a guide; why not experiment and send us your own favourite recipe?
