Is anyone here from Allahabad India? Have you heard of  Hari Ram and Sons? They make the best dum aloo masala ever tasted by anybody.

Hi, I am not from Allahabad, but my fiance is from Allahabd and she always talked about Hari Ram & Sons at the Chowk, she buys samosa s every sunday morning from there and some spice too. Do you know if there spices are available here in USA? Are you related to them? I remeber my fiance talked about their daughter who lives in USA and she recently visited Allahabd to attend a wedding in Allhabad and she visited my fiance for make up work at her salon in Civil Lines. Posibility is you probably know her cause Allahabd is a small city. Le me know if you know where can I buy their spices, I would love to try them. A friend of minni's mouse

hi everyone! Indeed dum aloo masala from hari ram and sons is one of the best.They also had other masalas and ready samosas, namkeen etc. Quite a lot of variety.These masalas are not readily available outside India, so whenever we visit India, I use to purchase dum aloo masala, sabzi masala, samosa masala etc. Thanks to hari ram and sons for the good taste!

Wadhi cuisine is a favourite of mine. I will post recipe and pictures for Kundan Kaliya, but I do use silver not gold For me I can only buy Chironji nuts in California around Diwali. Also Lazzat-e-taam seems to only be available in Lucknow. I might try to make it but getting all the needed ingredients is a challenge. I even had a friend try and get the difficult items in Kalcutta recently. Guess perhaps I "just" get to Lucknow again!

Opps dropped a letter should read Awadi as in Dastarkhwan-e-awadh, the cuisine of of awadh, the old Moghul style recipes are amazing. Yes they take time but that's OK for the results are amazing.
