The founders, Tarun and Anu Bhalla, are fitness enthusiasts who want to share their passion for eating well through their easy to use sauces because they believe that sharing exciting culinary experiences binds us all together. Tarun is a medical doctor by training, and Anu, the grand daughter of famous chef Kundan Lal Gujral, is a tireless creator of new culinary delights. Anu and Tarun founded and ran a Pharmaceutical manufacturing company for 20 years before founding Meal Mantra.

Anu invites you on a culinary exploration of diverse cuisines to enjoy the simple pleasures of cooking often lost in the whirlwind of a busy life.

Anu learned to appreciate the wonderful art of cooking at an early age when she would follow her grandfather Kundan Lal Gujral (inventor of the Tandoori Cuisine and dishes as Dal MakhaniTandoori Chicken and Butter Chicken – the inspiration for the now global favorite Chicken Tikka Masala) into the kitchens of the legendary Moti Mahal restaurant in India. 

Mealtimes must always be joyous occasions and nothing would please us more than for you to create your very own interpretations with our curry sauces!
