Mama Dor's offer a range of authentic Indian spice blends, all hand crafted with love
At Mama Dor's, we are passionate about cooking (and eating!). We believe that Indian food should be prepared without pomp or ceremony, should be eaten without guilt and definitely without any of the hassle.
Originating from India, all our spice blends are authentic, homemade and have been passed down many generations of the Dor family kitchen! So, if you're looking for a Chicken Korma blend, we're sorry but you're in the wrong place. However, if you're looking for authentic flavours that the whole family will enjoy, read on...
Our spice blends have been created to allow you to create fresh, healthy and authentic Indian food in the comfort of your own home. All our blends are sugar & gluten free, suitable for vegans and work beautifully with a wide variety of diets.
Environmentally friendly and plastic free, all our spice blends are provided in a refillable glass jar and come with a laminated, easy to follow recipe card. The recipes are all carefully designed to ensure speed and simplicity, so no having to grind any spices, no fiddling with multiple spice packets per recipe and absolutely no fancy ingredients that you'll never use again! Usually, all you'll need are items you already have in your fridge or store cupboards.
Of course, if you're comfortable with experimenting, we encourage free-styling too! We always love hearing from our customers about new creations and what family & friends think, so please do get in touch.
You'll get value for money as each jar contains enough spice blend to feed a family of four, 2-3 times.

WHO IS MAMA DOR?
Hi all I’m Giz, the flavour creator behind Mama Dor’s Kitchen!
Born and bred in Birmingham, Indian food has always been a huge part of my life and I have been so lucky to have been surrounded by a wonderful fusion of cultures and flavours.
I was taught and encouraged to cook from a very young age, making a variety of dishes that the whole family enjoyed (most of the time!). My dad would always tease me and give a score out of ten for each meal I’d created (he had high standards though, and a perfect ten was a coveted thing!). I had mastered the art of round rotis (chapatis) by the age of seven, which made my mum very proud. Wonderful happy memories of growing up around tasty, healthy food with my fabulous family.
So, as a result, I’m always cooking for friends. But I’ve always been sad that so many of my friends shy away from cooking Indian food, opting for a jar or a takeaway. Or even worse, try making their own and have to pay a fortune for numerous spices that they’ll never use again. So I thought I’d change that!
All my spice blends are created by hand, using spices ground and sourced in mills in the UK. They are all based on recipes that my amazing mum has passed onto me from her mum, and so on. And they are definitely all meals that I cook and eat with my family.
I have spent most of my adult life working in a corporate environment. But then I became a mum (or ‘mom’ as us Brummies would say!) and I decided that spending time with my wonderful son and husband were more important. So that’s what I’m doing; spending my days creating new flavours, making customers happy with their creations and feeding my boys good wholesome food!
I really hope you enjoy my spice blends. If you have suggestions or ideas for new creations, I’d love to hear from you!
