I can vouch for Rupen's Masala Simmer Sauce, it has just a bit of a kick to it, with really nice flavors of tomato, garlic, and ginger (among others). I was lucky enough to be gifted a private cooking lesson for 4 with Rupen about a year and a half ago, so I had full trust in his ability to make a tasty sauce.

Made a fantastic butter chicken with this simmer sauce from DC chef @rupenrao. I would have posted a photo, but it didn't last that long!

One of the first things I did after moving to DC was to take a class with Rupen. Fun, tasty food, and good company. Smelling this curry sauce brings me back to that day.

I just tried the first bottle of Makhani sauce, cooked it with sauteed Paneer. I am speechless. This sauce is better than the best!!! Rich in flavor. Just the right amount of heat. Perfect tangy. And is that final note from fenugreek!!! OMG. Yum Yum Yum.
