New innovations in kitchen supplies were gaining momentum in the 70s, the increasing number of working women being a major contributing factor. Although Malayali households had begun to wrap their heads around grinders and mixers, preparing masalas from scratch was still a time-consuming chore for women. Packaged curry powder would make their lives a lot easier, we figured out. Non-resident Malayalees on the active lookout for quick-fix Kerala cuisines would benefit a great deal too. Back in the time, Indian spices were not easily accessible abroad. Even if you manage to scrape together a few spices, they couldn't match the authentic taste of Kerala curry masala.
Saras Spices was a breath of fresh air in the market. We handpicked high-quality pepper, turmeric, chilly, and coriander, among other unique spices integral to Kerala cuisines straight from the farmers. They were then grounded, processed, and packaged in our manufacturing units and sold under our brand name Sara Spices. In a short span of time, Saras masalas and curry powders became a rage among housewives and chefs across the world owing to the authentic flavor they bring to the dining table.

Retorting is introducing heat to low acid foods which are otherwise prone to microbial spoilage, in air tight containers to extend their shelf life. The goal of retort processing is to obtain sterilization by application of heat and avoiding preservatives. This technology was developed and perfected by NASA and currently being used by the US army forces to provide nutritious and tasty meals to their personnel.
