Meet the Family
When Sandeep isn't hanging out in trees, he can be found hiking mountains, or riding his Royal Enfield motorcycle. Endlessly exploring, his travels often take him to far flung places, and if we are lucky, he brings back exotic, rare foods for us to try once he returns!
In his spare time, he manages Pure Indian Foods as Head Gheek and Curiosity Extraordinaire. He never lacks for ideas and has both Nalini and staff pacing to keep up with his constant thirst for trying new things.
He is well-loved by staff for his punny jokes, riddles, fables, and stories.
Sandeep also moonlights as:
AKA Ghee Lady, Head Manufacturer, Hand-maker of all the things
Nalini may be small in stature, but she holds the whole Pure Indian Foods world on her shoulders. We wouldn't be in business without her, as she is the hands lovingly making all the products behind the scenes.
Sandeep and Nalini truly are a dynamic team. Nalini is especially patient and supportive about all of Sandeep's new product ideas! Sandeep is the gas, and Nalini is the gears that keep things running.
To her staff, she is affectionately known as the "Ghee Lady."
Great-Great-Grandfather Lala Khoobram Agarwal
Family Business Since 1889
Inspired by his family values and with a desire to continue his family tradition, he left his hi-tech job, and in 2008, Sandeep and Nalini launched their homemade ghee manufacturing business in New Jersey, calling it Pure Indian Foods.
