Food and Drink Matters is extremely proud to present Ragini’s Mauritian Curry Powder as its selected Authentic Ingredients Producer of the Month.
Experience the taste of Mauritius with Ragini’s delicious curry powder. As the only Mauritian Curry Powder manufactured in the United Kingdom, this authentic recipe includes the same spices used in Mauritius to create an aromatic and flavoursome blend. Whether you’re looking for something a little different or to recreate a favourite holiday meal, Ragini’s is the perfect choice.
Having been born in Mauritius, Tegaranee Ragini Phillips (Teggie) set up the company with husband Tim Phillips to bring a real taste of Mauritius to the UK.
“There’s no curry like a Mauritian curry!” commented Tim. “We wanted to allow people to experience a real, homemade, classic curry that before now could only be found in Mauritius. Having set up the company from scratch just a year ago, we are delighted with how customers have taken Ragini’s to their hearts. The feedback we have received has been phenomenal and we are keen to encourage more people to experience its unique and superior taste.”
A perfect blend of medium flavour curry powder, the recipe is neither too hot nor too mild to ensure you don’t lose any of its flavours. Although Ragini’s is perfect for a curry powder or paste, its uses do not stop there. The delicious powder can also add a little something to traditional meals such as Sunday Roast or English breakfast. Just add the powder to your roast chicken or lamb with garlic &^ ginger paste or add to your eggs to give a different spin to your traditional meals. For the BBQ season add Ragini’s to your marinade for chicken, fish, or steak or even to your burgers for delicious Ragini’s Mauritian Burgers.
To help get the best out of your powder, Ragini’s have produced four delicious recipes that can be found on their website. These include the Cari Poule Chicken Curry, Fish Curry with Aubergine, Butter Bean Curry and the very popular Cheeky Ragini’s – which, likened to the taste of medium Nandos flavour, allows you to create your very own ‘cheeky Nandos’ at home.
“We believe we can help anyone to make the perfect curry, from beginners to experts,” explained Tim. “Our simple recipes are easy to follow and ensure you are getting the best out of our curry powder. We love to hear from our customers and especially about what original dishes they have created using our product.”
Customers experiencing Ragini’s at festivals and events have all been pleasantly surprised at the outstanding quality and mouth-watering taste with many commenting on its convenience, easy to follow recipe and spectacular taste. It was recently showcased at a local pub in Greenhithe – The Pier Hotel and received a fantastic response.
Landlady Kim Matthews commented: “Tim and Teggie asked me to help out with their product testing. Ragini’s recipe for Cari Poule was easy to follow and made a lovely curry which I served to regulars at The Pier Hotel. The customers loved it and I will be serving Ragini’s Cari Poule in my restaurant.”
“We have been overwhelmed with some of the feedback we have received from customers, with one even stating it was the best homemade curry they have ever had!” Tim concluded. “Our aim is to get as many people to experience the great taste of a Mauritian curry with our powder.
“We are looking to expand the range and get regular distributors on board to make Ragini’s available in shops and supermarkets. If anyone is interested or would like to find out more, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss your queries or requirements.”
The company has attended many events this year including the East of England Food Festival in Knebworth and the Surrey Food Festival. They will soon be appearing at Continental Market UK on the 29 April- 2 May, Sevenoaks Food and Drink Festival on the 6-8 May and Car Fest North and South in July and August.
