Aazol's Agri Masala is the primary spice blend used by the Agri fisherfolk community hailing from Palghar, Raigad and Thane. This all-weather dry spice mix makes any seafood dish distinct, offering a unique fiery smash to the palate.
The word Agri comes from the Marathi term aagar for godown. Western Maharashtra’s Agri community owned grocery storehouses to stock fish, salt and coconut. The Agri Masala adds flavour and fire to their seafood preparations, and pairs wonderfully with rice. While each family devises its own masala recipe, we can confirm that ours constitutes 20 spices slow-roasted and ground assiduously to perfection.
About The Seller
Mother and daughter duo, Neelima Madhukar Naik and Snehal Pravin Naik, laid the foundation of Naik’s Konkan Food Bazaar way back in 2006. Neelima’s confidence in her long-perfected recipes combined with the highest quality of local ingredients fuelled their modest business providing Konkani food essentials including pickles, papad, flour and speciality products under one roof. 15 years later, the family business employs nine hardworking women and is run by her grandson Siddharth who takes utmost pride in his Aaji’s recipes and describes her as a relentless woman, who even at the age of 75 insists on making her own pickles and mixes.
