The idea of Hot or Now you decide was spawned from me trying to create interesting dishes for my friends kids, which were easy, healthy and tasty "foreign" and resembled what they set out to be. Well there's no reason that the kids should have all the fun so we now have a range that everyone can enjoy.
Products with you at the heart
Hot or Not you decide! - range of food products from around the world:
We have curry sauces, soups and chef's condiments and produce food products with four benefits always at the centre:
Gourmet - products are made to the best recipes from the country of origin that they can be and the best ingredients have been selected to put them together.
Graded - we're all different so we have created Chilli HotShots - little capsules packed with chilli.
All our products start off mild and at the end you can add the Chilli HotShots found in each pack - to customise the dish the way you like it.
Handy - packaging is designed to be light and fit in anywhere in the cupboard. The special food grade pouches keep the ingredients fresh for when you want to use it.
The curries and sauces take 12 minutes to make using three easy steps.
1. add sauce to your pan
2. add meat, fish or veg
3. add the Chilli HotShots... Hot or not? u decide!
The dishes are all easily adaptable; chose from a quick mid week meal to a gourmet dinner ...now that's handy.
Healthy - no additives or bulking agents, vegetarian and gluten free - no allergens aside from celery - Losalt and Jaggery unrefined sugar ensure flavour doesn't lose out to the oh no's on the back of the pack.

On our shelf we sell Jaggery - unrefined sugar from Indian with Iron and some Vitamins still present and with amazing benefits putting it into the category of SUPERFOOD.
We already use it in our soups and curries. It is in a really useful powdered form, so we have now packaged it separately to be enjoyed in tea, coffee, baking, smoothies and on the kids cereal; low in GI it makes a more healthy and slower start to the day!

Production of Jaggery- Indian Jaggery is made from sugar canes....
The production of Jaggery is contained to a few countries, mainly India, but due to its process, remains a more healthy fair-trade sugar alternative.
Please watch the video below to see how it's made.
