We met Harshit, one half of Madhu at the Good Food Awards Ceremony this year. We bonded over being Asians who had to explain to our family why we were ditching our corporate careers to chase our foodie dreams.
Madhu is based in Austin. They are an award winning bean-to-bar chocolate maker specializing in Indian-inspired flavors. They are also a BIPOC, LGBT owned and led small business.
In Singapore, our food is multicultural and includes Indian in its mix. We love how familiar Madhu chocolates are to our tastebuds. Madhu inspires us with their deep flavors that are inspired by their Indian heritage. In Hindi, their name means honey or sweet.
Every bar size: 2.6 ounces(72 grams)
IDUKKI BLACK PEPPER - 68% CACAO
GOOD FOOD AWARD WINNER.
A 68% dark chocolate made with Idukki Hills beans from Kerala, India. This amazing bar is flavored with Diaspora Co. single origin black pepper from Thirunelly, Kerala, which adds a unique, almost savory flavor that makes this bar truly special.
Ingredients: Cacao, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter, black pepper
SAFFRON MILK - 45% CACAO
Saffron is worth its weight in gold. Literally! Being the most expensive spice in the world, we’re lucky that a little goes a long way. Drawing inspiration from traditional Indian beverages, we thought saffron would make the perfect addition to a milk chocolate bar. And guess what: we were right! The combination of floral saffron and milk chocolate give this bar a refreshing, honey-like quality that we can’t get enough of, and we think you’ll love it too.
Ingredients: Milk chocolate (cacao, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter, whole milk solids), saffron
ROSE PISTACHIO DARK - 50% CACAO
Is there a better representation of Indian sweets than the combination of rose and pistachio? We don’t think so, which is why this delicious bar was one of our very first creations. We grind both pistachios and rose petals along with our cacao and sugar so make a nutty, slightly floral chocolate with a soft, creamy texture. The addition of pistachios and rose petals to the back makes each bar a visual delight. It’s truly a treat for all the senses.
Ingredients: Organic cane sugar, Cacao, Organic cocoa butter, Pistachios, Dried rose petals
CARDAMON DARK - 60% CACAO
Is there any better aroma than cardamom? We certainly don’t think so. Sweet, floral, a little bit citrusy, it is the perfect accompaniment to a smooth dark chocolate.
We grind single origin cardamom seeds from Guatemala to our Tumaco, Colombia cacao and sugar to create a wonderfully flavorful, decadent bar that is truly something to love. Whether paired with a nice glass of red wine, or simply enjoyed on its own, our Cardamom 60% is truly something special.
Ingredients: Dark chocolate (cacao, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter), cardamom
MASALA CHAI DARK - 60% CACAO
You know whose mother makes the best Chai? Everyone’s! But seriously, our mother makes the best Masala Chai of all time. And none of that Oregon Chai cinnamon, vanilla, chili powder nonsense, we’re talking real Indian chai. Cardamom, cloves, black pepper, ginger, and a little bit of mint are added to Assam tea and ground along with a slightly milky 60% chocolate, and we are absolutely in love with it. Do we really need to say more?
Ingredients: Dark chocolate (cacao, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter), whole milk solids, black tea, spices
VANILLA FENNEL - 76% CACAO
After an Indian meal, it is common to freshen your breath with a pinch of candy coated fennel. This was our inspiration for our Vanilla Fennel 76% Dark Chocolate bar. The floral, licorice flavor from fennel seed is paired with the familiar, warm baking spices of vanilla for a bar that is too easy to love at any time.
Ingredients: Cacao, Organic cane sugar, Organic cocoa butter, Organic fennel seed, Organic Madagascar vanilla
LEMON CORIANDER- 78% CACAO
We’re suckers for citrus around here, so we could think of nothing better than using fresh lemon peel in a dark chocolate. But it couldn’t just be lemon, that would be boring. In this bar, we decided to pair lemon with the citrusy, herbaceous notes of coriander seed. The result is a very unique, aromatic dark chocolate bar unlike anything you’ve had before.
Ingredients: Cacao, Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic lemon peel, Organic coriander
