In today’s India, food has become much more than a necessity, as the age of the internet has given birth to food bloggers, good food is now a hobby.

From Mexican to continental, from Lebanese to Japanese, the Indian of today is spoilt for choice. Eateries across the country provide a plethora of delicacies ranging from the most exotic dishes to familiar desi delights, cooked to perfection.

Karamat products include three flavors of basic soup mixes of tomato, hot & sour and sweet corn; starters such as harabhara kabab and cheese ball mix; red and white paste marinades, chutney and sauce mixes, bases for gravies and curries, like the white, red and brown gravy bases.
