Manchester based company, Harjinder’s Kitchen Ltd, has launched a new ambient Punjabi Tarka Masala base with additional spices which can be used to create authentic traditional Punjabi Curries.
After cooking for over forty years, and her deep commitment to cooking traditional Punjabi food, it led her to contribute to television cookery shows and she showcased her skills in front of the nation.
As well as teaching, Harjinder has worked her culinary skills to bring Harjinder’s Punjabi Tarka Masala Kit to kitchens of the UK as a ‘helping hand’ in her quest to ‘Educate, Enlighten and Enrich’ the Indian cooking experience for the great British consumer.
Having recently showcased our product at the ‘Spirit of Summer Fair at Olympia, London and The ideal Home Show in Manchester, sales have quadrupled and we are proud to have been received the coveted Guild of Fine Food’s Editor’s Choice Award at the Harrogate Speciality Food Trade Show stockists in Manchester and Yorkshire.
Harjinder Kaur, Managing Director, said, “I created the PunjabiTarka Masala Kit to bring the authentic taste of the Punjab to the UK, for people of all nationalities who like rustic, rich, home-cooked food. It’s so versatile; it can be used with any meat or vegetables, and is suitable for the free from aisle.
“All the hard work has been done, I have replicated my own spice tin a total of nine spices including spice blends unique to my family and with the recipes cards included in the kit, you have everything at your fingertips so busy people can rustle up a delicious meal in minutes, brimming with taste but still allowing the cook to be creative with no shortcuts! The unique taste of home cooked food will make you realise what you’ve been missing.
“Use the whole pouch of masala to cook one dish serving 8 or split the contents into two and cook 2 smaller dishes serving 4 people each, just choose which of the 12 recipes takes your fancy.
“Made from ingredients you can see and taste and it’s ‘free from’.
It’s versatile and perfect for meat or vegetables dishes and dhal.
