Like most mothers, I wanted to send our son, Gautam, off to school with what he needed for success, along with something from home. I created a spice box – common in Indian culture – that contained the spices we used most often at home. When Gautam tried cooking, he had difficulty getting the delicate balance of spices and sequence of steps to prepare a meal. Gautam did not understand what good cooks know from experience – that measuring, smelling, and tasting are all part of creating a meal.
This experience sparked the idea to create pre-measured recipe packs to help someone new to cooking, or the experienced cook, have success creating meals from India and places around the globe.
We started our company, FillMyRecipe, with recipes passed down from one generation of our family to the next. Together, we bring these recipe packs from our kitchen to yours under the Flavor Temptations brand. You’ll find our recipe packs online, and in grocery stores in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
To help you feel comfortable cooking Indian cuisine and have a positive experience using our packs, we’ve created a blog and step-by-step videos. We’ve also had the pleasure of being featured by local media outlets in these press articles.
We are living our dream. And we hope you’ll share your experiences cooking our recipes on this website.
