Our Story

it all started with a homesick college student...

Buttermilk So Northwest Womens Show
While living away from home for the first time, our founder was fed up with the food options she had -- all she wanted was a bowl of her mom's rasam (a traditional South Indian dish)! On her next visit home, she told her mom she was missing her home-cooked food. So, her mom showed her that once she had all the ingredients, all she had to do was add hot water to complete the dish. That was the moment she realized that anyone could have their favorite childhood meals without spending too much money or time.

The Buttermilk Company launched in July 2017 in Seattle, WA and now ships authentic, fresh Indian meals all over the continental U.S. Enjoy the taste of home with us, just add water!
