Who are we?
MirchiMasalay is the largest online Asian grocer, offering produce, halal meat, and spices sourced from all over the world. We empower home cooks to create authentic Asian cuisine, offer interesting new ingredients for all your kitchen experiments.
Where do we deliver?
We’re a fully online business based in Chicago, but we can send ingredients all over USA.
Why source ingredients from all over?
First and foremost, because the world is a delicious place! The more we learn about food, the more it helps us to appreciate each others’ shared humanity and the beautiful, fragile biodiversity of our planet. We’re committed to sustainability, and we love to see both unusual and everyday ingredients grown locally. But we think sourcing the world’s local, seasonal food is a more long-term, nutritious and secure solution.
Most (roughly 96%) of the environmental impact of food production occurs before either the transportation or packaging phase, usually due to artificial and intensive mass farming methods. We want to help the food industry and foodies like you to embrace the world’s biodiversity and balance the world’s diet, so that it isn’t so weighted towards unsustainable animal farming and high-yield, low-nutrition cash crops.
What’s next for Mirchimasalay?
