Ammiji’s at CAL

This contest has ended.
Click here to see the post announcing the winners.

In the times of processed and packaged food, Ammiji’s is an attempt to bring age-old kitchen wisdom and herbal remedies and recipes under the spotlight. It is an attempt to offer products that are chemical-free and pure. It is an endeavor of the heart. While the rest of the world sprints off in the direction of quick and convenient, we go back to rediscover our roots and history.

Each of our products is made at home, with a recipe developed or approved by Ammiji. We use only pure, premium ingredients – no fillers, no substitutes and no chemical preservatives. We take the wisdom of Ayurveda, combine it with plain old kitchen common sense and use practices that have been followed for centuries. Whether it is an old traditional recipe or a new gourmet one, each one is backed by wisdom and the belief that health comes first. Because Ammiji demands the same out of everything that comes out of her kitchen. (Yes, she’s 90 but she still cooks.)

Our ethos is one of consciousness. We are extremely choosy about our ingredients and even more so about our packaging. Wherever possible, we use eco-friendly elements unless they compromise the health of our product.
