About Us

Ammikal is on a mission to "Make Authentic Regional Tastes Accessible" for home-cooking. It was created to solve the paradox of a ‘limited menu at home’ in a country with such a rich culinary history. Our products look to bridge the gap by re-discovering recipes and providing access to ingredients in a convenient format.

Whether it is the Mangalorean Ghee Roast, the Hyderabadi Biryani, the Kerala Fish Curry or the Awadhi Shami Kabab, our spice-blends will help you ‘Cook up a Feast’! Our masalas are based on well-researched local recipes and blended in small batches from high quality spices.

We follow a strict ‘clean label, no preservatives, no additives’ policy for all our products.

The name ‘Ammikal’ refers to ‘Mortar & Pestle’ (sil batta) in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The logo is a typographic adaptation of the same with the added symbolism of the ‘red bindi’ to pay respect to all the mothers that passed down the recipes and kept the magic alive.
