It is a land that embraces and celebrates a melange of customs, cultures, traditions, and people.

Manjusha Barua, Founder
Born in Assam, Manjusha travelled the length and b2th of the region with her father who served with the Government of Assam in various capacities. The beauty and diversity of the rich, magical land that she saw in her childhood remained imprinted in her memory.
After her post graduation from Bombay University and a diploma in Mass Communications from St. Xavier's, Mumbai, Manjusha worked in Corporate Communications & Branding with two oil majors - IBP Co. Ltd. and Indian Oil - Corporation for over 20 years.
This took her to various locations across the country and, in the course of her travels, she became passionate about connecting the wonders of the North-East with the rest of the world.
Today this region is slated to become a ‘Natural Economic Zone for the Country’ and for Manjusha, there was no better way to organically connect others to this exotic land than with its food and food products. She wanted to create a product that would give the world a “taste of North East” and bring the unique touch, feel and flavors of this region to every household. Thus was born EAST BY NORTH EAST.

Not for the weak of tongue!
The Bhut Jolokia is three times hotter than Habanero chilli peppers
and 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce.
It can be pickled, put into curries, and even a touch of it can add the heated zing to any meal. It is legendary as a pepper that can turn food aficionados into devotees.
In 2007, The Guinness book of World Records rated the Bhut Jolokia
(ghost pepper) as the world's hottest chilli pepper.
BHUT JOLOKIA — also known as the Ghost Chilli/Pepper has grown for many centuries and is believed to have originated in Assam, though today, it is grown in the neighbouring states of Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Manipur too.
ENE SWEET CHILLI SAUCE brings out not just the heat of the Bhut Jolokia, but also its ability to impart a distinct flavor to your meal as the heat combination hits your senses, somewhat subtly.
It is sweet as it touches the tongue but slowly the heat kicks in, and your tastebuds swing from one contrasting flavor to another. Because it is made with Fresh Chilli Puree (not powder), it retains its potency. The puree is made from chillies that are farm fresh, which are plucked and packed at local farms all over Assam to give you the unique ENE taste.
Works well with: all kinds of fried appetizers and snacks, grilled fish, meats and french fries.

The Extra Hot Chilli Sauce is so good, the taste is literally out of this world! I have it with all kinds of cuisines-

I add the sauce as a chutney to add zing to my regular meal.
