If you’re after restaurant quality food that’s easy to make at home, look no further than the new range of authentic Indian curry pastes from Geeta’s. Guaranteed to put the wow-factor into home made curries this range is part of Geeta’s 20th Anniversary celebrations.

Whether you prefer your curry hot and spicy, or mild and creamy, there’s sure to be a paste for you. Available in six authentic varieties, chose between mild Korma, exotically spiced Tikka, big-flavoured Balti and fragrant Rogan Josh. Or, if you prefer something a little hotter, brave spicy Madras with tamarind and exotic spices.

Developed by Geeta Samtani herself, Geeta’s Curry Pastes are created from family recipes that use traditional Indian methods. Packed full of carefully selected, premium Indian spices, the pastes contain no additives, preservatives, artificial flavourings or colourings and are suitable for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs.

With no need for additional spices, Geeta’s pastes do the hard work for you, making a mouth-watering meal in a matter of minutes – perfect for when time isn’t on your side. For an aromatic curry, simply add your choice of meat, seafood or vegetables to the paste, before finishing off with a tin of chopped tomatoes and single cream. Alternatively, why not add some paste to creamy yoghurt for a tasty dip or marinade. What’s more, with its convenient pouch format creating the perfect serving for two people, food wastage is a thing of the past.

To further mark its 20th anniversary, Geeta’s Foods has undergone a dramatic makeover turning the entire range of authentic chutneys, pastes and sauces turquoise. Reflecting the Indian heritage of the brand, the bright jewel tones of the stunning turquoise design are overlaid by a delicate gold embroidered lotus design.

Bursting with flavour, Geeta’s new Spice Mix range combines expertly selected Indian herbs and spices, making it simpler than ever to create authentic Indian food at home. Perfect for when time isn’t on your side, Geeta’s Spice Mixes contain all the spices you need to add to a few store-cupboard essentials to make your favourite curry.

With each mix representing a particular region of India, whether you prefer your curry hot and spicy or creamy and mild, there is a Spice Mix for you. Chose from the five tasty combinations of Tandoori, Tikka, Rogan Josh, Keralan and Dhansak and create a mid-week or weekend meal for family and friends within a matter of minutes.

Creating an exquisite marinade for meats and fish, why not try the aromatic Northern Indian delights of roasted coriander, cardamom and chilli that creates the ultimate Tikka Spice Mix or, for more Punjabi inspired cuisine look no further than the zingy Tandoori Spice Mix, an irresistible blend of roasted cumin, ginger and cardamom and with paprika giving it a tantalising red hue, making it a feast for the eyes as well as for the taste buds!

Heralding from the affectionately termed Land of the Spices, the Keralan Spice Mix bursts with all the delicious flavours from South India’s Keralan region. Whilst the Dhansak Spice Mix is a beautifully blended collection of spices from of one of India’s favourite lentil dishes which subtly combines flavours from Persia and India’s North West region of Gujarat. Alternatively, for a wonderfully aromatic mix from Kashmir, the Rogan Josh Spice Mix will add a hint of Persian exoticism to any curry.

Versatile and delicious, the range of five spice mixes are the key ingredient to helping you to make a mouth-watering curry or marinade with help from just a few store cupboard essentials (like chopped tomatoes, yogurt or coconut milk) and any meat/poultry/seafood or vegetables.

The versatile range is priced at £1 for a 30g pack, serves four people, and has been created by Geeta herself. Each recipe champions the spices and herbs typical to specific regions across India.

Tikka and Tandoori from Geeta’s Spice Mix range is available from Morissons as well as the full range being available from www.geetasfoods.com and contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
