Pure Indian Foods Organic Tamarind Paste
Pure Indian Foods’ organic tamarind paste has a pure, clean flavor with a bracing tartness. This thick, smooth paste is our favorite form for using tamarind as a souring agent. While fresh pods are available in some markets, it’s more commonly sold as a concentrate or as dense blocks of pulp that need labor-intensive soaking and straining; both forms sacrifice nuanced flavor in favor of convenience, whereas this tamarind paste is both easy to use and intensely flavorful. Pure Indian Foods, which traces its roots to 1889 in northern India, still uses traditional methods to make its products. The company’s pantry staples have a complexity and authenticity that just can’t be imitated.
Organic tamarind paste is great in a variety of sauces and in dishes like our Tamarind Chickpeas with Greens or Shrimp with Tamarind and Cilantro. Beyond the traditional, brighten up your morning oats along with a drizzle of honey, or try it in vinaigrettes and marinades.

Pure Indian Foods 1.1 Pounds Organic Jaggery
Organic jaggery is a raw, unprocessed Indian sugar produced from unfiltered sugarcane juice. We love this one from Pure Indian Foods for its deep, earthy flavor—reminiscent of maple and caramel—and its moist, almost creamy, yet crumbly texture. The family-owned company traces its roots to 1889 in northern India and sources pantry staples have a complexity and authenticity that just can’t be imitated. Use jaggery as an all-purpose sweetener; it pairs well with warm spices like cinnamon, allspice and cardamom or with anything coconut or citrus.

Pure Indian Foods Organic Cultured Ghee
Pure Indian Foods cultured ghee is a shelf-stable cooking fat made from butter that has been simmered to cook off its water and milk solids. It has an extremely high smoke point that makes it better for sautéing, searing and frying than other cooking oils, which can burn and develop acrid flavors.
Pure Indian Foods’ ghee is made only with organic milk from grass-fed cows, has an extra-buttery taste from cultured milk, and is lab-tested to be completely safe for those who are lactose intolerant. We also love that every jar of ghee is still cooked and prepared by hand by Nalini Agarwal, co-owner of her family’s company, which traces its roots to 1889 in northern India.
