(Tanya Nanayakkara with her Family)

Born in Sri Lanka, Tanya Nanayakkara spent much of her time in Sri Lanka before moving to Australia in 2010. Since moving to Australia, Tanya tried countless curry powder blends and she couldn’t find anything that hit the spot, so she had to make her own… Few weeks later, she made a Sri Lankan Curry Powder. That Sri Lankan Curry Powder recipe was passed down by Tanya’s mother, it is a cherished family tradition. Tanya has been tasting and tweaking the curry powder recipe and range of curries for many years until they are aromatic and truly scrumptious!

Tanya’s curry powder is made in small batches right here in Perth, Western Australia from local and premium quality ingredients. It is carefully slow roasted and blended by hand in small batches to give them that wonderful fresh taste of Sri Lanka. Tanya’s Sri Lankan Curry Powder is plant based, dairy free, soy free and gluten free! All you need to do is open the jar, enjoy the fresh aroma and then follow her free easy to use recipes. Tanya’s curry powder is a flavor bomb, just try and see it yourself.
