Want to add a little spice to your life? Stop by Arvinda’s for some masalas (Indian spice blends) and international spice blends. These easy-to-use, expertly-blended spices are the key to unlocking delicious curry dishes at home (in just seven steps, according to the company’s founders). Arvinda’s was founded by siblings Preena and Paresh, and named after their mother Arvinda, a passionate teacher of Indian cooking. All of the ingredients in Arvinda’s masalas are of the highest quality, and sourced from Canada whenever possible: garlic from Ontario, coriander and mustard seeds from Saskatchewan. From fiery (Vindaloo) to mild (Butter Chicken) to something more European, there’s an Arvinda’s masala to satisfy every palate.
