The Mango Mukwas Yogurt Sauce is fragrant, sweet Indian yogurt dip or raita. Traditionally, raitas are used as a mild sauce or side dish to mellow down spicy dishes, and to improve digestion. “Mukwas” is the traditional after-dinner breath-freshening mix, and makes a special addition to this raita.
The civil war in Syria is not only a humanitarian tragedy, but is also disrupting the global spice trade.
Syria’s rich, ancient food culture and balmy climate make it a top producer of many popular Mediterranean herbs and spices. The Spice Station’s supply of top quality Syrian sumac, cumin and za’atar has been cut off. Although we are able to find other sources of those herbs, the unique Aleppo pepper is only available from Syria.

We believe that “Every neighborhood should have access to purchasing the highest quality product at affordable prices. Our goal now is to facilitate this process.“
Since this video of the Spice Station on TV, we decided to shut down all physical locations in 2017 and focus solely on online sales and wholesale distribution to restaurants, chefs and specialty shops that carry his brand. A few of our local retailers are Joe Barkeeper in Silverlake and Larchmont Village Wine, Spirit & Cheese.
