For Shanti Narasimhan, the founder of Shree Iyengar Foods, pure, authentic, home-cooked food is the ultimate panacea— the cure-all to every situation, whether good or bad. She grew up in a household and culture where food is worshipped and loved, and time-honoured recipes are passed down generations in an attempt to sustain that love through the years. Though she holds a degree in Botany from Madras University and an impressive career in marketing (don’t ask us to explain this career progression!), Shanti’s undisputed and one true love has always been food. So when both her kids had grown up, she decided to do her part in sharing with the world the joy and beauty of authentic South Indian food. It was this philosophy that came to lay the foundation of Shree Iyengar Foods, which Shanti started in 2017. The goal of SIF was simple: to provide restaurant-quality meals at the comfort of your home, every day. Right from conception to execution, marketing, strategy and design, this feisty mompreneur has personally been at the helm of everything, ensuring the brand is faithful to her vision and mission, and uncompromising on the high quality that it prides itself on. ‘The focus, right now, is to establish SIF as the go-to brand for those who want nothing but the absolute best for themselves and their loved ones,’ says Shanti. ‘Additionally, I would love for people to understand and appreciate, through SIF, the importance of women-led startups, and that entrepreneurs are not always 20-something B-school graduates,’ she laughs.
Founder, Shree Iyengar Foods
I have been regularly ordering Shree Iyengar Foods. Enjoying fresh, authentic and quality South Indian food for long. I have been to the address where they make their product, just amazed to witness the kind of hygiene being maintained. Very much satisfied. Thanks Iyenger foods. You make the weekends special.
The batters from Shree Iyengar Foods are simply superb. And you all may already know my love for her stuff, but today I made onion uthapam and shallots sambhar with her guidance! Our dinner was just fab!! Bus thoda carnatic music hota then we would have been transported to some really authentic South Indian restaurant!
Truly the Dosa and Idli were yummy and sambhar was delicious, thanks to the sambhar powder! Loved the coconut chutney too!
Absolutely outstanding! My family and I enjoyed each and every item. Forwarding with high recommendation to all my Gurgaon friends. You have us hooked now!
Awesome stuff. Idlis came out super soft and delicious. Excellent coconut and tomato chutney. The gun powder was too good as well! Really enhanced the taste. Thanks for bringing the stuff to us at Palam Vihar. We were really missing out on it.
As some one who has seen Shreeiyengarfoods grow from a seed, a sapling and now a beautiful plant! It gives me so much happiness to see this baby grow, flourish and blossom. Diversification into a variety of Dosa batters with a variety of add-ons to add flavour to a normal mundane Dosa. Amazing how an Idli Dosa Industry is the talk of the town and taste of the tongue!
I'm so happy to share that I had the most amazing south indian lunch today, all thanks to SIF! Ordered Idli/dosa batter, vada batter, chutney & ready special sambar. Shanti ji shared her tips for fluffy soft Idlis & Crispy Vadas. Every item was excellent and of top quality. I have used idli batters of Amma's, Rishta & GOK. Shree Iyengar's far exceeded these brands & is very competitively priced. Highly recommend you to try Iyengars!
