Hansa’s Masala Tin: Is a beautifully presented stainless steel spice tin, found in most Indian households. It contains 13 different spices, great for experimenting with different flavours and aromas. Each spice has a separate cubicle which ensures preservation, and refills can be obtained which means you do not have to throw the tin away or try to find another use for it. Great, because now you can continue on your way to becoming a specialist in Indian spices!

Hansa’s 2 cookbooks:

Hansa’s, more than just a restaurant.. It’s my life: A brilliant inspirational cookbook in celebration of exquisite vegetarian Indian food and Hansa’s extraordinary journey to achieve her dreams of a successful restaurant.

There are over 80 delicious but easy-to-follow recipes, accompanied by beautiful photos to illustrate how the meal should look – helpful as some dishes are not your every day recipes. Alongside food, the book encompasses culture and philosophy to give insight on the healing properties of many of the ingredients used.

She also gives many suggestions about how to combine dishes together to manifest a satisfying but healthy meal. The fact that such tasty and unique food can maintain healthiness is what makes this cook book not only distinctive, but ultimately superior to other cook books, and a great gift for all food lovers.

Both Hansa's Cookbooks

Hansa’s Gujarati Vegetarian Cookbook: Beautifully designed, illustrated and within the pages is folded a historical overview about Gujarati cuisine, how to store and use spices correctly, Hansa and her family, and also cooking techniques. Not to mention much information about how different spices can enhance your health!

The book was voted No1. from the 10 best vegetarian cookbooks by the Independent in May 2011. It has something for everyone, no matter how little they have cooked or advanced they are. Hansa has simple recipes and more complex dishes to follow, but the recipe instructions are clear with lots of useful tips for using leftovers or changing ingredients. This is the perfect book to start a journey of Gujarati recipes that will be of restaurant-quality.

Hansa’s Heritage Tours of India “I’m sorry we no longer conduct these tours anymore but we can help you to draw up an itinerary for you visit to India” –

Our packages include a Diwali or Kite festival tour of Gujarat, the vibrant city that actually influenced Hansa’s vegetarian Indian meals, or the Enchanting Kerela tour. It would be a chance to get the real experience of India, from everything to its serene beaches, indigenous villages and all the most renowned sight-seeing spots. See our India Tours page for more details.

Hansa’s cooking the books - Hansa’s cookery demonstrations are always a fun and cultivating evening. They begin at 6pm with a complimentary drink, followed by her demonstrations and a three course dinner of mouth-watering vegetarian Indian cuisine. The award winning chef shows how the simplest of vegetables and pulses can be turned into a delightful meal in minutes, with a few Gujarati dishes from her cookbooks. Our guests always go away with new ideas about cooking and recipes that they would like to try themselves. Unusual gifts are often the best, so deliver one they won’t be expecting!

Party Chef Hansa - Dinner parties sometimes mean you spend more time in the kitchen than in the company of your guests. Here at Hansa’s, we want to pull the chair out for you to take a seat, which is why we offer home-catering for dinner parties of up to 8 guests at the price of just £250 – of which ALL the money goes towards our favourite charity Saraswati Vidhiyalaya, a UK organisation for one teacher school projects in India and Nepal. For a delicious evening of Indian caterting, one school can be funded for the entire year. A perfect gift for you and them!
