WHAT IS MONKEY SAUCE?

Bandar Monkey Sauce is the first mainstream Indian hot sauce!  Bandar’s first two products are inspired by co-founder Lalit’s family recipes of mango pickle (achar) and mint cilantro chutney – ubiquitous condiments found throughout South Asia. However, these playful monkeys, added their own spice blends and puréed these sauces down from their typical chunky form into tasty, appetizing, squeeze-bottle condiments that until now didn’t exist anywhere in the world! The savory, spicy flavors of Bandar’s All Natural Spicy Mango and Mint Cilantro Chili Sauces can be enjoyed by Americans on just about anything that could use a unique, exotic kick - Bandar sauces go great with sandwiches, falafels, kebobs, and even waterlogged hot dogs. 

WHO'S BEHIND THIS? 
 
Bandar was conceived by two fun-loving founders who represent a cross-cultural collaboration between India and America.  Lalit Kalani and Dan Garblik became good friends in grad school.  Previously, Lalit worked in liquor manufacturing in Mumbai and Dan was a restaurant manager on the Las Vegas strip – ingredients for a saucy collaboration.  Lalit currently lives in Philadelphia and handles Production and East Coast Operations while Dan is in San Francisco and handles Marketing and West Coast Operations.
