Review and Giveaway: Stonehouse 27 Ready-to-Use Indian Sauces

Do you love Indian food, but are a bit intimidated by the thought of cooking it at home? If so, then you'll LOVE the product that I'm introducing you to today...Stonehouse 27 ready-to-use Indian sauces. The company was kind enough to send me a six-pack of their sauces so I could try them out in my kitchen and see how easy they are to use. This is my kind of product, people: all-natural ingredients, delicious, and so simple to use. The sauces are even vegan/veg-friendly! With these sauces, you can have a yummy, healthy meal on the table in about the time that it takes to cook a pot of jasmine rice.

Stonehouse 27 sauces come in six exotic and yummy flavors:
  • Tamarind & Garlic with Creamy Coconut and Cumin
  • Tomato & Chilies with Cinnamon and Agave Nectar
  • Cilantro & Coconut with a Hint of Lemon and Ginger
  • Dates & Tamarind with Roasted Chilies and Garlic
  • Mild Cashews & Cream with Sweet Paprika and Sesame
  • Spicy Cashews & Cream with Chilies and a Touch of Lemon

Sharon Fernandes is the founder of Stonehouse 27. She grew up in Bandra, India, a waterside village that's influenced by Portuguese and British settlers. She lives in the U.S. today, but carries a lifelong connection to the cuisine of the area. She founded Stonehouse 27 in 2008. I used the Spicy Cashew & Cream sauce to make a delicious chicken curry a few nights ago. It couldn't have been easier! I put a pot of jasmine rice on to cook, cut chicken breast into cubes, seasoned them with salt & pepper, browned them, added the sauce, and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. I simply served it over rice with some chopped cashews sprinkled on top, and dinner was ready.



The sauce was so tasty...the seasoning was complex and flavorful...I kept wanting to eat more. The chilies provided just enough heat, and the lemon gave it a brightly citrus background flavor. I really liked this sauce, and I loved that I could make such a delicious dinner in about 30 minutes.

I also sampled the tomato & chilies and tamarind & garlic varieties as dipping sauces for warm-from-the-oven naan bread. Both were very tasty as well. The tomato & chilies was spicy and slightly sweet from the agave nectar. It was so good that I had a hard time not eating the entire bowl! The tamarind & garlic was a bit tangy, and the cumin gave it a smoky heat in the background.

  2. I love Indian food so I think these sauces are a wonderful idea. I think that each one sounds delicious but If I had to pick one to try first it would be the Cashews and Cream. I love that this is vegetarian so I could make it with vegetables for the 2 vegetarians in my family and then serve a little chicken on the side for the others.

    I am so excited to see that there is a store right near me that sells this product.

  3. Oh goodness, all of them look delish, but I'd be really interested in the Tamarind & Garlic with Creamy Coconut and Cumin. I make a catfish curry, so I'd like to try it with the sauce.

  10. Whew am I late to the game on this one! Indian food is something I am trying to learn more about (love everything I've sampled so far) but my BF has a huge aversion to it for some reason. I know this is going to sound silly because you are featuring it as one of the giveaway flavors but I would love to try the tamarind and date. Ive never had a date but I love working with tamarind. I wouldnt even know what to think about how it must taste but Im always open to trying new things!
    Follow you on the tweet box :)
