Masala Mama, known as Nidhi Jalan, was born in Calcutta, India, where a nurse’s playful nickname at her birth foreshadowed her culinary destiny. Despite her spicy moniker, Nidhi’s early food experiences were in a large, multi-generational household where meals were often bland. Her real passion for flavors blossomed in the kitchen among the household staff, savoring dishes rich in spices. After moving to New York for a Masters of Fine Arts degree, Nidhi’s longing for authentic Indian flavors led to the creation of Masala Mama, a venture blending her love for art and traditional Indian cuisine, offering a taste of home-cooked Indian meals with ease.
The real game-changer came at a dinner party. Chatting with a worn-out hostess who loved Indian food but was overwhelmed by the endless ingredients and hours needed to cook it, Nidhi had a lightbulb moment. Why not make it easier for everyone to enjoy these amazing flavors? That’s how Masala Mama was born – out of a dream to bring those awesome, home-cooked Indian flavors right to your table, minus the hassle.
