Who is Momma T?
ARTIST • SCIENTIST • FOOD LOVER • MOTHER
Vandana Turaga is a talented musician, researcher, cook, gardener, and the best mom in the world! Born and raised in Hyderabad, India she is passionate about exploring new crafts and experimenting with foods sourced from the local community and her garden.
As a busy mom, it has always been important for her to cook fresh meals for the family that are both easy and nutritious. Her spice kits have always been part of her cooking arsenal to expedite the cooking process. Her family encouraged her to share her "secret" weapons with others and thus Momma T's Southern Indian Spices was born. Flavors born in South India and handcrafted with local ingredients sourced from the South (North Carolina).
Made in South (NC), from the South (India)
Our family is from the state of Andhra Pradesh in India. Our spice blends are uniquely South Indian and are designed to bring bright flavors to any dish whether you're cooking a quesadilla, quick stir-fry, or chana masala.
All of our spice blends are ones that we've been making and using for generations past down from our grandmothers. We started this business with the hopes of sharing our rich culinary history both in India and here in the United States.
