Spices of Dansborg is a South Indian home delivery catering services. When Prakash and Krithika first moved to Denmark 3 years ago, they found it really hard to find good traditional South Indian food here. So they decided to do something about it.
The company was originally started in January 2017 in Copenhagen, but a job move for Prakash, the face of the company, to Sonderborg resulted in the company being re-established in Sonderborg earlier this year. The cooking is then done by Prakash’s wife, Krithika, and two other Indian ladies she met through their kids’ school: Prianka and Divya.
The company is mainly based on facebook. There you can find the menu from which you can select what you want and order via facebook chat on a quick call. Once you order delivery is free if you order for the Sonderborg are and for more than 200 DKK; if cost is less delivery costs start at 10 DKK. Orders should preferably be in 3 hours before delivery is required, except for parties, where a week notice is preferred.
Being big fans of good Indian food we decided to give it a try with friends, ordering a selection of dishes, from chicken biryani to panniyaram. The food arrived hot and on time and was all very well received, especially the paneer butter masala. Unfortunately they had no lamb when we ordered. So a pity that we haven’t tried it but it gives us the best excuse to order again (not that we need much encouragement).
The other photos in this post are from the Facebook page but this is our photo of how we got the food. (We didn’t care for presenting it nicely we just wanted to eat!)
So what can we say? Check out the menu items, speak to them on facebook or call them on 5010 1046 to discuss what you want, and just wait for the food to be delivered and dig in!
Interested in Indian food? Want some spice (food spice that is ;)) in your life? Well, you are in luck! Bratatee Barman and Vivek Menon, an Indian couple living in central Sonderborg have just started an Indian Culinary Experience and as hejsonderborg we got to be the first to try it out earlier this month.
The experience consists of choosing one of (currently) eight menus from different parts of India (half of which are vegetarian). You then agree on a mutually appropriate date with Bratatee and Vivek and all that is left is that you turn up on the day at their house, where you will prepare the dish together while you talk about Indian food. If you like you can then share the meal with Bratatee and Vivek or, alternatively, you can take the food with you to eat at home.
The menu we chose came from the Southwest of India and consisted of Tandoori salmon followed by Mangalorean fish curry and Kachumbar. As it was my birthday we also got dessert added as a gift! As is to be expected spice featured very heavily in the food and although we had come across most of the spices we had never yet cooked with curry leaves or tamarind paste. We also got some spices to take away with us so we could recreate the fish curry.
The experience takes around 2 hours (not including eating). For 350 DKK for an individual or 300 DKK per person for a couple you get to meet two Indians living in Sonderborg, learn how to cook their food and, if you like, share a dinner with them. If interested you can contact them on their facebook page or contact Bratatee at +45 5278 8120/Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. So if you are looking for something different to do one evening or also a gift for someone interested in food, a new option has arisen on the horizon!
Bratatee has blogged about some of the dishes she makes on A Pinch of Salt and a Drop of Lime.
