Satisfying the need for enlightenment on the various species used in the royal cuisine is the amazing outlet called Spice Paradise. It is a one step shop that stocks several of the spices commonly used in everyday food stuff as well as the rare delicacies prepared in the kitchens of the royalty.
A knowledgeable couple has formed a dedicated team of two to bring information on the source, properties and usage of the various spices that they stock. Some of the spices have also been sourced from many of the far-flung areas of the country.
This couple has gone a step further by providing cooking classes as well. During these classes they take special care to explain about the various spices that are being used in the preparations that they create. They share with their classes some of the virtues, values and effects of these spices.

Thus the blue city has this one unique niche of taste and flavours that is singularly special. There is another reason why Spice Paradise has made a place for itself. The owner couple of this outlet offer several varieties of their ‘masala chai’ on request. This tea tasting experience is most amazing. Many a customer has been known to take back gift packs of these teas as cherished gifts and souvenirs.
