Diaspora Co. Masala Dabba
Dabba with 7 Spices
The long awaited Tiipoi x Diaspora Co Masala Dabba is here! Made from spun brass in our Bangalore workshop by our metal spinner Venkatesh Chinappa, each dabba comes complete with 7 single-origin spices sourced from small family owned farms across the sub-continent. And as founder Sana Javeri Kadri proudly puts it, ‘the big, audacious dream was to grow a radically new, decidedly delicious and truly equitable spice trade.’
In this dabba you will find 7 single-origin spices, with 100% traceability for each one. Diaspora Co pays its farm partners up-to 6x more the average commodity price and fosters long term relationships with each of them. Spices in this dabba include Aranya Pepper from Kerala, Kandyan Cloves from Sri-Lanka, Sannam Chillies from Andhra Pradesh, Pragati Tumeric from Andhra Pradesh, Nagauri Cumin from Rajasthan, Nandini Coriander from Gujarat, and a fiery Makhir Ginger from Meghalaya in the North East. For us here at Tiipoi, we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with, create, and sell a product by a brand that we strongly believe in, that mirrors our own values of how things should be be made today.
“The standard masala dabba, found in most Indian kitchens, is an unassuming, flat, steel canister with a lid. Inside, seven small circular containers, set in a floral arrangement, hold different spices. On the surface, there’s nothing remarkable about it. But once the top comes off, the masala dabba reveals a heady paroxysm of colours and aromas.” Read more about masaladabba’s here on Diaspora Co’s blog.
