Our Story:
In January 2014, I started a distribution company for vegetables that are not regularly available here in Chennai. The idea was born out of my own frustration of not having access to a regular supply of salads and greens in the local markets. 


The fruits, flowers & vegetables that I offer are all farmed in India. They are

grown in professionally managed farms, owned by my family, who have been in the business for the last 30 years. Only minimum quantities of approved pesticides are used responsibly whilst growing the vegetables. In other words, we take care to make sure there are no traces of fertilizers or chemicals on the products by the time they are harvested. Wherever appropriate, the produce is washed after harvesting, before packaging and shipping. The produce is also chilled on harvesting which ensures freshness for a longer period.

The vegetables & fruits are packed in standardized  bio-packs, and you will find the size and quantity of each pack mentioned on our website. Today we also sell cut-flowers.

Strawberry Spinach Salad

The salad of the summer is here! Whether you need a healthy lunch or are looking for a salad to bring to a party that—this is critical—people actually want to eat, this Strawberry Spinach Salad is the recipe for you. 

Consider this recipe more of an adjustable, go-with-the-flow starter than a strict script.

We’ve included the ingredients and amounts to make a stellar Strawberry Spinach Salad for a crowd, but you can switch them up to suit your preference or keep things fresh and new when you come back to make it again. Here are a few ideas:

INGREDIENTS (SALAD:

100g pecans (can substitute with other nuts such as almonds or walnuts. alternatively sunflower seeds could be used)
half small red onion (very thinly sliced)
250 g baby spinach (a 50/50 arugula spinach blend is great too)
400g strawberries (sliced)
100g crumbled feta

INGREDIENTS (DRESSING):

4 Tbsp balsamic vinegar 
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1.5 Tbsp poppy seeds
1.5 Tbsp honey
0.5 tsp dijon mustard
0.5 tsp salt
black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

1. Toast the pecans: Preheat the oven to 177 degrees C. Spread the pecans in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the pecans smell fragrant and the center of a pecan is tan when the pecan is broken in half. (Do not walk away from the oven in the last few minutes of cooking. This is when nuts love to burn.) Transfer to a cutting board and roughly chop

2. Place the sliced onions in a bowl and cover with cold water. Let sit while you prepare the rest of the salad (this keeps their flavor but removes the harsh onion bite).

3. Prepare the dressing: In small mixing bowl or large liquid measuring cup, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients—vinegar, oil, poppy seeds, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper—until well combined. (Alternatively, you can shake the ingredients together in a mason jar with a tight-fitting lid)

4. Assemble the salad: Place the spinach in a great big serving bowl. Add the strawberries. Drain the red onion and add it as well. Drizzle about half of the dressing over the salad and toss to coat the leaves. Assess the amount of dressing. You want the spinach leaves to be nicely moistened but not swimming in dressing. Add a little more if needed to suit your preferences. Add the feta and pecans. Toss lightly to combine. Serve immediately, with extra dressing on the side as desired.
