Dinner is Served: Tikka Masala with Nummy Nibbles
As a retail outlet in the food world, we are so lucky that we are able to remain open and serve you. We are also fortunate that we get to support small producers by bringing their items into our shop. Today we are featuring Nummy Nibbles.
Nummy Nibbles is a Denver-based small business, specializing in gourmet condiments and sauces.
The company was launched by Subhash and Jyothi, a Denver couple, whose experiments with creating a spicy peanut butter led to some amazing, tasty, global flavors and eventually to a new product line – Gourmet Peanut Condiments! In mid-2018, they launched a line of authentic Indian Cooking Sauces that showcase Regional Indian flavors and are Certified Vegan, Whole30-approved and have no added sugars! Their philosophy is that flavorful foods should be easy, fun and accessible to all.
Their sauces take a simple dinner to a whole new level of flavor. Check out the recipe below for their tried and true tikka masala. The ingredient list is simple and we have proteins, rice, frozen peas and the sauces in the shop so you can grab everything in one stop.
To minimize the number of customers in our store at one time and to practice social distancing, we are encouraging our customers to place an order online for delivery or pickup or call your order in and we will pack it for you.
