They contain no artificial additives or preservatives or colours. They are all 100% vegetarian products.
Off the beaten track. The soul of Goa.
Traditional. Authentic. Rare.
Much of Goa’s identity and reputation stems from its premier position as a holiday destination in India, with its many palm-fringed beaches, laid back life style and, of course, good food. Despite the huge popularity of its cuisine, for most outsiders, Goa’s delicacies do not stretch beyond the mainstream Portuguese usual suspects and their Goan derivatives. This regrettably overshadows a vast repertoire of Goan Hindu, Christian and Muslim creations, along with that of the indigenous tribes, that are outstanding in their taste, character and style of cooking.Even the various specialities of its regions and localities that lend variety and richness are mostly overlooked and never attempted. The Women of Fatorda brand of masalas aims to showcase these unknown and hidden gems that reflect the essence of these communities through recipes that are handed down many generations. While you enjoy our unique masalas, discovering new tastes and textures, trying out new preparations with them, we hope to bring about a shift in perspective with which all of us view Goa and its eclectic cuisine.

I simply love these masalas. They are wonderful.
Soumitra Wadalkar, Mumbai
I really liked the spice powder it was good I have already used thrice and the curry was loved by my family.

We loved every thing we cooked and will order again and again…. Have also sent to family in Germany… This is a taste of home… Thank you and continue the good work.

“I love them! That’s why I’ve bought a lot again! Thanks to the biryani masala I have rediscovered the joy of making biryani at home as the traditional process was just too time consuming.”
Sanjay Nirmal, Bengaluru
“I live in the USA. I tried the Mutton, Aamso Tikkso, and Gavli Bhaji and they are excellent and way better than the other packaged Goan masalas that we get over here. My only regret is that you are not able to export this high quality product.”
Roy Cardozo, USA
"The masala is so convenient and easy to use because it is a complete blend that needs very little additional work on the dish. Well packaged, with recipe guidance, the product stays fresh without losing an iota of taste for a very long time in the refrigerator.”
Nanda Majumdar, Mumbai
“The amazing thing is that the masalas are all you need. Very little ingredients are necessary to prepare these dishes. The heavy lifting is done by the masalas and they are so easy to cook.”

"These masalas are absolutely lovely. The taste and the flavors are rich and nuanced. On my recent trip to Goa I had a chance to compare the taste with the local eateries and I have to say these masalas are richer in flavour."
