Stay cool or warm up with organic gluten-free spice blends from Arora Creations. The inspiration for these easy-to-cook blends came from the “secret dust”spice recipes of Mom Arora,mother of company founder Dhiraj C. Arora. Originally from Northern India,Dhiraj grew up eating delicious food prepared from traditional ingredients and a healthy dose of mother’s love. When Dhiraj left to attend school in the United States,he asked his mother to send spice packets and recipes so he could prepare tasty food for friends. The food was so successful that Dhiraj decided to embark on a 2 year quest to find authentic organic ingredients for his new company:Arora Creations’Authentic Indian Spice Blends.
