Our Story


Desai Foods Pvt. Ltd. owns ‘Mother’s Recipe’, the well-known ethnic food brand that has had a presence in India and across the world since 2001.

The Mother’s Recipe brand essence as the name suggests, revolves around a mother’s love which she pours into the food she prepares for her family. The brand pays homage to this endeavor by creating products that bring together heart-warming flavors born from a union of authentic taste and rich tradition from all over the country. 

The product development process for the Mother’s Recipe brand is an ode to our childhood memories of watching our parents & grandparents hustling & bustling in the kitchen to make all our favorite food while using the best ingredients and traditional recipes passed down through generations. 

We offer a wide range of products under the Mother’s Recipe brand such as pickles, ready-to-cook spice mixes, instant mixes, chutneys, papads, cooking pastes, and sharbats are a true celebration of Indian cuisine and home cooked food.
