Delicious spice and recipe

Bollywood Theater Tikka Masala is a delicious addition to my spice drawer and the recipe included is ridiculously easy and worth trying. The mix is fresh and fragrant and I’m looking forward to trying the Vindaloo. And Reluctant Trading is a fabulous resource for other fine products!

First Meal with Reluctant Trading Spices

Had tikka masala tonight from the Bollywood Theater Indian Spice Set. Cold here in Chicago so put the chicken under the broiler instead of on the grill. Flavor was wonderful. My wife, who loves Indian food, said it was great. I had seconds and see thirds in my future later tonight. Apart from the food itself, I have been very impressed with Reluctant Trading's quickness in filling orders and open and sincere regard for customer feedback.

Bollywood blends make magic happen!

After picking up a jar of fragrant curry blend from Bollywood Theater, when I ran out i was instantly sad. Living on the East coast I was so excited to see it offered on Reluctant Trading along with a Masala trio. While it's a priviledge to have these blends on hand, they make me long for a trip back to BT! Pro tip: we found these to work great as a dry rub for chicken wings too!

My favorite on-line shopping experience

I have been purchasing items from Reluctant Trading Company for about
3 years. I have purchased a variety of items: salt selection for my in-laws,
chia tea for my son, garam masala and a beautifully handcrafted salt holder
for myself. Everything arrived in a timely fashion and wrapped with extreme care. You can tell how dedicated Scott is to customer satisfaction. Every
item ordered came individually wrapped with the upmost care. So refreshing to experience this when other sellers just throw your item in a box and they're
done. All the items purchased have been excellent. The garam masala
is so fresh and flavorful. I will continue to purchase from this company. It
is definitely a 5-star experience.


These are wonderful! I love throwing a teaspoon or two in a dish with flavorful
