A LITTLE ABOUT BALBINA’S KSC SPICE BLENDS
Balbina is a Home Science Graduate from Nirmala Niketan, Mumbai. She spent several years researching & studying about spices, she says, “spices are like people in a group, each with their own personality. Amalgamation of spices without identifying their personality can be disastrous”. Having given the Housewives and the food enthusiasts some really easy to use Hassle free – Spice Blends, today Balbina is working closely with several Food Services MNC’s & Corporate Houses customizing Spice Blends for Exotic foods, Retort foods, Rubs that convert into marinades for Fish, Chicken & Meats (frozen/chilled), spice flavorings for cakes, puddings & ice-creams, Various Spice & Herbal seasonings for Pastas, Pizza’s and scores of other applications.
The feather in the cap has been the development of Pasta Flavors – Serial Prototypes for ITC Food Division, Bangalore. India
Another first has been the Rubs that easily convert into Marinades with addition of only water. This concept has added true value to Chicken / Fish / Meat sold in Supermarkets with only natural ingredients. (The apply & Fry/BBQ/Grill concept)
Balbina is popularly known as the Real “Masala Queen” “Mistress of Spices” “Curry Queen” “Bhojan Mein Swad Jagane Wali Mahila”. Balbina’s KSC Spice Blends have also won several awards & felicitations…
1. Best Product Developed by an Indian in the Small Scale Industry – Jointly by Maharashtra Chamber of Commerce & Industry & Government of Maharashtra.
2. Best & most prominent entrepreneur of Goa 2004 – awarded by Goan Review Art Foundation, Goa for simplifying the complicated “Goan Cuisine”.
3. Featured in the Book of “Women Entrepreneurs In India” by Nisiet, an organization of the Union Ministry of SSI.
4. Featured in the Hotel and Food Service Magazine as the ‘preferred vendor’ in the hospitality industry.
5. Selected by Ms. Rashmi Uday Singh to showcase and demo her products at the Mumbai Festival 2005 between 14 – 23 Jan 05.
6. Featured in the Times Good Food Guide, launched on June 03, 2005 at the Hilton Towers, Mumbai, which gave Balbina’s KSC products a 4.5 out of 5.0 rating and simply said “Welcome to the Mecca of Masala”
For several years Balbina carried out her research & ran her business from her home. The demand for her pure products steadily grew and she simply could not cope with orders from her home. In the year 2003 Konkan Spices & CurryMakers was established. What she did was - brought back quality spice powders into the commercial market free from fillers, preservatives, artificial colours or chemicals. She says “with the advent of the price wars – manufacturers and dealers in spice powders reduced the potency of spices by adding cheap not so easy to detect fillers” she adds “if you are using pure spices, you don’t need more than 10 – 12g of spices to cook 1kg of foodstuff’ (vegetables, white meats, red meats etc.).
Armed with this basic researched information and samples of the KSC’s real thing she invaded the 5 star hotels, corporate canteens, bulk food manufacturers and even super/hypermarkets. The chef’s and bulk food manufacturers were rattled and shocked to learn that for years their regular suppliers have taken them for a cool ride. In fact she told the world about the harmful artificial colors in spice powders much before the world woke up to Sudan colors. What she further demonstrated was that if you use the Real thing then your consumption of spices in your preparations comes down drastically. Further, the taste of the food is enhanced and the food does not spoil very soon.. That’s where the economy lies. Buying poor quality spice products at a cheaper rate surely ensures a psychological gain but in reality it is an economical drain. The Hotel’s Unit Cost Controllers, Material Managers & Chef’s unanimously agreed and today KSC is welcomed wherever they go.
Balbina’s KSC Spice Blends bring aromatic freshness of spices back to your kitchen, because of the unique style of processing & blending the spices, an art used by our ancestors but perfected by her. No wonder! When you cook food with Balbina’s KSC Spice Blends all around enquire, “Wow! What’s cooking?”
