Spices Extraordinaire

The freshest tasting spices I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy. Far better than the named brand models and reasonably priced to boot. This was not my first order and for sure won't be my last.

A little spicy for us!

I made both the Vindaloo with pork and the chicken Tikal's Masala recipes. Both came out a bit spicy for us and the Tika seemed salty. I'm a pretty good cook, so will have to review the recipes again and make some adjustments. The flavor of the spices was wonderful however. Thank you!


The tellicherry peppercorns are the most fragrant I have found-even dinner guests notice the difference!
The tikka masala and gram masala are amazing and my curries have never been better! I will definitely be reordering! I need to look at some of those recipes on your web site.

Love it!!

I have loved all three spice mixes.Last night I made elk vindaloo and my kids and parents all loved it! I just purchased four more sets for Christmas gifts so I can share the deliciousness:)

Bollywood Theater Indian Masala Spice Set

Living in rural Georgia makes it rather difficult to get good Indian food, but now that I've discovered The Reluctant Trading Experiment I can make it at home. The masala blends are fabulous and remind me of the amazing flavors I've experienced in London and DC. Now whenever I have a craving, I can whip up a vindaloo or tikka with some homemade naan and bring India to the middle of nowhere.

I highly recommend this masala set and I also recommend that you give the Bollywood Theater Masala Chai Loose Leaf Tea a go, as well! Far, far superior to any "chai" latte you might pick up at your local coffee shop!
