Profits from your purchase of this product will be used to fund programs that provide students with the opportunity to experience the excitement of tech and engineering.

This hearty dish is a mainstay and a comfort food - ask any Indian how often they ate daal growing up!

You can eat it as a soup - just add water to get to a lentil soup consistency.  The more traditional way to eat it is with a vegetable (e.g. sabzi or aloo gobhi) and either steamed rice or Indian breads make a delicious meal! A whole wheat wrap or pita will do just fine.  A small cup of yogurt (or raita) on the side helps tone down the heat.

Serves 4-6

Package ingredients: Organic lentils, Organic spices (Cumin, Coriander, Chili powder, Turmeric)

What you need to make this recipe: 

1/2 medium onion

2 medium tomatoes

1/2 inch ginger (optional)

1 green chili/small jalapeno (optional)

1 clove garlic (optional)

Oil (sunflower/vegetable, not olive)

Juice of 1/2 lemon


Chopped cilantro (optional)

Masala Mystique

I come from a long line of foodies – we talk about food all the time! Inspired by my mother’s traditional recipes, I am passionate about cooking and love introducing delicious Indian vegetable dishes to friends.  It is, most likely, the original plant-based cuisine!

When my daughter went away to college, she missed Indian cooking, but didn’t want to have to buy spices she wouldn’t use often. So I started giving her little spice packs and instructions for specific dishes.  Before I knew it, word spread and I had requests from her friends and even mine. And that was the spark of a business idea.  

I spent my career in the technology world. Beyond my passion for food, I am committed to creating access to early technology education for students with limited resources. It levels the playing field and it is my personal mission to support programs equipping these children for the digital economy of the future. A majority of our profits will go to supporting educational initiatives for underserved students.

Masala Mystique brings it all together, by helping you succeed in cooking delicious Indian food, without buying a hundred confusing spices, only to use one spoonful.  We’ve taken my mother’s traditional recipes, made them easy to follow, and given you just the right mix and amount of spices to create delicious dishes at home.  And, you're helping underserved students to prepare for their digital futures with each tasty bite.
