Chutney pudi, masala powders and instant mixes — get your fix of South Indian essentials at Sambar Stories' e-store. There are few things on earth that truly remind you of home — the fragrance of filter coffee, tangy mango pickles and of course, the writer's personal favourite — a steaming bowlful of sambar. Needless to say, when we spotted all these and more at this tiny store called Sambar Stories, we had to check it out.
Started by Sneha Srivara in 2014, Sambar Stories began with the aim of helping people make natural, high-quality and healthy South Indian meals from scratch, so they don't miss home or their mother's cooking. Find all your favourite essentials, be it freshly ground masala powders, chutney pudis or coffee powder with variants of chicory to suit your taste and preference. You'll also find ready-to-cook mixes for days when you can't live off the pickles.
Prices start from as low as INR 45 and can go up to maximum INR 490 — that's for a filter coffee gift set that comes along with a stainless steel filter (we know what we want for our birthday!).
