Handcrafted Wooden Spice Box Masala Dabba with Glass Lid — 8 inch, 10 inch, 12 inch

Sold Out

This exquisitely handcrafted Sheesham wood traditional Indian spice box is made by artisans in Saharanpur & Nagina, two small towns in India with a grand legacy of woodworking. 

Known by various regional names — lakadiyu or masaliyu in Gujrati, anjarai petti in Tamil, loonki in Punjabi, masala dani or namak dani in Hindi, the masala dabba is at the heart of an Indian kitchen.

The wooden masala box comes with 9 removable compartments to store all your spices with a lift-up transparent high-quality glass lid. A wooden spoon is included.

Besides using them as traditional spice organizers, our customers have also been creative, using them to store mukhwas (Indian mouth fresheners), tea bags, as jewellery boxes, or as a piece of home decor to store curios and knick-knacks.

Comes in three sizes:

  • 8 inches
  • 10 inches
  • 12 inches

The quality is second to none.

This was my second Wooden Spice Box from MadeWithLoveInIndia in 2 years. They were both purchased as Gifts. The first time I ordered they had issues getting stock in. Ravi rang me and explained due to COVID there was a delay and it was well worth the wait. This time it arrived well packaged and on time. Again I wasn't disappointed. I definitely recommend and give this company 5 stars. The Wooden Spice Box receives 5 stars too. The quality is second to none. The recipients of these gifts were amazed at the quality too.

I purchased the handcrafted wooden spice box masala dabba with glass lid, the 10 inch size. I was required to contact Customer Services. Excellent response time and my issue was resolved promptly. Very honest and customer focussed company. I will surely be ordering from this company again.
