Why  "Fresh Frozen" Sauces? Well, we'll be honest. We didn't think of this years ago. Sutra's Best Simmer Sauces were really born out of the idea that people everywhere, still love to play "Chef" at home. Whether we are young or old, we all enjoy being creative in the kitchen. The problem is that most of us just don't have the time to prepare and then cook a decently healthy yet delicious meal for ourselves or our family. For decades we have been listening to what our loyal customers have been wanting and this line of sauces was really created out of necessity.  Most Indian sauces are found on the store shelf not the freezer, and they are imported, you know they are high in salt and you really dont know what else is in it. Our sauces are lovingly made and designed to allow you to be creative by adding your own meats or vegetables and whipping up a meal the whole family will enjoy, usually in under 20 minutes. We think that you will love our Gluten Free sauces, made with love. So go ahead and Bring Out Your Inner Chef!
