Mrs Balbir Singh's Gourmet Spice Blends

Our Story

Make Amazing Indian Food at Home with the Finest Indian Spice Blends. From India's Award-Winning Godmother of Home Cookery.

Born in 1912 in Punjab, Mrs Balbir Singh was a beloved and celebrated author and chef of the early 20th century. She is widely regarded as one of the most influential cookery writers and teachers of modern India.

Today our small family-owned company's labour of love is to continue Mrs Balbir Singh's legacy by bringing you a range of gourmet spice blends made to the recipes of this icon of the culinary world, so you too can easily cook some of the best Indian food in your own home.

My grandmother was a pioneering female-force in the art of Indian cookery. She was one of the very early foodie mumpreneurs at a time and place it wasn't easy at all, which is why I’m so proud and excited to have started a company that celebrates her achievements and world-firsts. In doing so I aim to take her legacy and what is a special part of India’s culinary heritage to an even wider audience.

The Perfect Gift for Foodies

Handcrafted in Artisan Batches. Proper Indian, Made Easy. ALL NATURAL | GLUTEN-FREE* | VEGAN-FRIENDLY

I've created these gourmet spice blend gifts for me and my family to honour and stay connected with my grandma, while helping people experience and enjoy truly authentic homestyle Indian food.

We've only just started on a mouthwatering discovery of her quintessential recipes and we invite you to join us on what we know will be a very special and tasty journey.

Our top grade spices are expertly sourced, fresh-ground, and blended in small artisanal batches in the UK. We then pack our masalas into our eco-friendly tins and ship the four-pack in a foil-stamped gift box containing an introduction to Mrs Balbir Singh and authentic recipe cards, making them the perfect gift for any lover of Indian food!

It's not only my responsibility but a privilege to keep her legacy alive, and a great pleasure to bring you many of her finest recipes and spice blends.

I hope everyone who tries them enjoys!

With love
