In a Hurry but want some Curry?

We carry a selection of groceries from all over the world. One of my favorite areas of the store is our Indian sauces & curries. You may be asking yourself… WHY are they featuring curry in the middle of August? This cuisine was developed in a country who’s average temperature is somewhere in the 30°+ range all year, and Indian food utilizes a lot of fresh produce which we are seeing at near perfection at the moment. So, why not!

Our selection of Umi’s Kitchen sauces are made using ingredients like real cream, fresh onions, extra virgin olive oil, lime juice, fresh ginger, cashew nuts, fresh garlic, sea salt.
