About Me

I'm a full-time mom who moved to Sooke with my husband in 2013.  I was born and brought up in India, but have a large part of my life in the UK and Dubai.  My husband is Norwegian, and we love to travel and explore together.  Our family since our move to Sooke has grown by one.

 Variety is the essence of India food, by bringing menu items from different regions of India I attempt to demonstrate the richness , sophistication and diversity of the vast country’s cuisine. In Northern India for example there are many meat recipes that derive its flavours from the various marinades which are used in the preparation and cooking of dishes such as Rogan Josh and Tandoori chicken. These richly flavoured dishes for which Northern India is famous, are developed and evolved though the course of many centuries and take their origins from the time of the great Moghul empire. Southern India with its Hindu traditions, provide great vegetable accompaniments and main dishes. vegetables that are transformed with the addition of coconut and spices into exotic and tasty dishes. 

I love to cook, and feel fortunate to have a business that lets me fulfil my passion!  I rent the Castle River Store kitchen twice a week, but  hope to one day expand this venture in the future.
