Meet Your Chef
Hi, My name is Mina and I am a home cook of authentic Indian food. My parents come from a fishing region/state in India called Gujarat (West India). They still have their humble home there that was built by my grandad over 80 years ago, and a mango farm (yes I sell mango chutney too) although it is used as their holiday home these days.
My mum had me cooking from the age of 8 (afterall how would I find a nice man to marry if I couldn’t feed him). Today I am grateful to my mum for starting me off so early and I have been inquisitive about food ever since. Learning from all my travels over the years and visiting India twice to discover there is such a wider cuisine and tastes from hot south indian food to the creamier moghul dishes of the north.
The menu gives you a taster of different regions of India and all authentic dishes I cook, although chicken tikka masala was imported to india from the UK ! My venture started out not that long ago in my son’s school playground, where mums asked me if I could prepare a curry to takeaway and I have not looked back. I make my curry’s fresh to order and cook and cool them so they are perfect to reheat. This allows the flexibility to have the curry where you want it, how you want it and whatever time you want it.
Its a different concept to takeaway but one that has delighted many customer’s to date. I cook my food in meditative mode ,so it is cooked with love which sounds a little hippie but I hope you can taste the difference and have a enjoyable taste experience in return. Where possible I use little or no fat in the cooking , there are no unnecessary additives or preservatives in my food.
Everything is handcut , handmade and homemade in small batches which mean I cook for you and your order not the masses which is the beauty of doing it all from home. Hope you enjoy. Do follow me on FaceBook for all the latest news from the kitchen too.
Fresh & Freshly Made
All ingredients used are fresh! Everything I make is made ‘ground up’, in more ways than one. No pastes, no additives, no flavour enhancers, no nasties and no unnecessary fats are used in the base cooking (curry does not need to be unhealthy).
I hope you enjoy the taste of my home-made curries, I love sharing my childhood and travelling taste experience with you. I do encourage comments so please be honest, constructive feedback can only be helpful! And much appreciated.
