You will need the kit, the ingredients in the shopping list, and basic cooking utensils. The recipes are all made with the first timer to Indian cuisine in mind and have been tested.
Depending on where you live and the shipping method you choose, you will generally receive your order within nine business days. We recommend that you place your order two weeks in advance. We never make money on shipping and handling.
We offer USPS, Fedex and UPS as shipping options. Once orders are shipped, the estimated delivery times for ground shipment are 2-3 days by First-Class mail and Priority Mail for most addresses in the United States, and 2-9 days by Parcel Post.
If your shipment arrives with damaged product, please contact us at customerservice at veenasmarket.com within two weeks of receiving your shipment. We will gladly refund you or send a replacement. Returns for other reasons will be accepted within 30 days of receipt, and you will be responsible for the return shipment. You can opt to get either an exchange or a refund.
We think so! We now show the spice level for each kit on the product page. While the spices in our kits are meant to be flavorful, they are not excessively hot. Spices that are hot, such as chili powder, are included in a separate packet. You can choose to add it to the recipe or not use it at all. Green chilies in the shopping list are recommended, but always optional. On the other hand, if you like your food hot, go ahead and add more green chilies than the recipe calls for, or use up all the chili powder you are given!
Even though spices don't expire, it is recommended that you use the product within six months of purchase. We buy whole spices and blend them just before packing. This way the spices and the blends that you receive are as fresh and flavorful as possible.
Please check the ingredient list as well as the shopping list in the description section of each kit before your purchase. You can also use the icons on the product as a guide.
We currently do not use any ingredients that contain wheat or gluten.
Please do! We do our best to keep our packaging to a minimum, and where possible, to use materials with post-consumer recycled content. The outer plastic bags are recyclable.
About 85% of our spices are organic and a few are fairtrade. We continue to search for organic suppliers for our remaining ingredients. Our goal is to ultimately have organic and fairtrade sources for all our ingredients.
At the moment you can only order kits on our website at VeenasMarket.com. If you would like to find our products at your local grocer or any other locations, we always welcome your suggestions at customerservice at veenasmarket.com.
