Frequently Asked Questions
Have you won any awards?
Yes! We've won 3 national Great Taste Awards, 2 in 2012 and 1 in 2014, plus we came first in a WeightWatchers taste test, winning 5 stars.
Are your sauces gluten free?
We do not add any ingredients containing gluten to any of our sauces.
Are your sauces dairy free?
Our fresh Indian cooking sauces (i.e. the pouches) contain yoghurt made from cow's milk. However, the jars are all dairy free!
Which sauces are suitable for vegetarians and/or vegans?
All the sauces are suitable for vegetarians. The jars are vegan.
How do you get your Indian sauces so low in fat yet still tasty?
We don't use tons of oil! Simple. And we always use the best fresh ingredients, which makes all the difference!
Can I freeze your pouches?
Yes you can, up to 12 months.
Do the fresh cooking sauces need to be stored in the fridge?
Ideally, yes, although they can stand ambient storage for a short period. They last 12 weeks in the fridge.
Do I have to keep the fresh sauces cold or will the be ok for a day or 2 ambient (if I wanted to take them on holiday with me)?
Cold is best, but if you're planning a trip and want to take some with you, they will be fine for a short time (we've actually tested them ambient for up to a month!)
Do you use already ground spices?
No! Even though it's extra work involved, we grind our spices fresh each week and we think the great taste speaks for itself!
Do you cook the sauces at home?
Haha - no! We have a purpose built commercial kitchen in Coventry, fully kitted out.
Who do you supply?
Midcounties Co-op, Spars, Budgens, farm shops, delis, butchers to name a few, mostly in the Midlands, but some further afield.
What's the minimum order online?
There's no minimum order, but we do need to charge for delivery under £25 as we need to cover the cost of the courier. Orders over £25 have free delivery and orders over £50 also receive a 10% discount, so you can club together with friends and make a saving.
Can the courier leave my order in a safe place if I'm not in?
Unfortunately the couriers are a law unto themselves - sometimes they will, sometimes they wont. Its out of our hands, but they will card you if you're not in.
Do I need to add anything, like extra onions or tomato to the sauce while cooking?
No, we've done all the hard work for you - all you need to do is add meat or vegetables, then go and put your feet up while its cooking!
What is 'Mild or Wild'?
We don't add any chilli powder to the sauces, just whole green chillies - you can make the sauce mild by leaving out the chillies (eg. if cooking for children) or leave them in for full effect if you like things spicy! The choice is yours!
Can I freeze your sauces?
You can freeze the sauces for up to 12 months. You cant freeze the jars as they are glass.
Do I need to brown my meat before adding the sauces?
It's up to you - browning can increase the flavour of the meat but it's not necessary.
Are your sauces hot?
The fresh sauces have whole chillies, so you can make them hot or mild. The jars have different heats, but none are too hot, except for the Zindaloo, which has ghost chilli, so take care with that one!
Do you add nuts to your sauces?
No, we don't use nuts in any of our sauces, nor do we use/store nuts at out unit.
Do you have a loyalty program?
Yes we do - you can now earn points when you spend, refer a friend and follow/like us - see our loyalty information page here
