Learn about Indian food and food health
On this website, we discuss the Indian food made in our restaurant. We also talk about healthy food and the importance of making sure you eat good-quality food. Indian food is as diverse as its culture, its religions, geography, climatic conditions and traditions.
Our website was made as a valuable resource for Indian cooking, from traditional meals in India to food with a Western flavour.
Indian cooking is characterised by the use of various spices, herbs and other vegetables and sometimes fruits. Every single ingredient of the dish is there with a purpose and compliments each other. In fact, the succession of dishes also keeps in mind the flavour and 'nature' of the spices, whether hot or cool.
Commonly used ingredients in Indian food are: Chilli (hot fiery red or green); Coconut; Garlic; Ginger; Basil, coriander (cilantro), mint and parsley; Fenugreek (methi); Saunf; Garam Masala; Mustard Seeds; Tamarind (Imli); Saffron (Kesar) and Rose water (gulkand).
These are also prepared using different methods of cooking like baking, boiling, frying etc. In India, food is seen as a symbol of sharing more than just great taste - it is about making new friends, learning about cultures and spreading love!
We make a range of fresh organic prepared foods, including curries, soups and ready meals, both vegetarian and with meat.
We have a passion for good food and a passion for life. We are what we eat and we'd rather be naturally pure and tasty than hydrogenated and modified. Everything we make is designed to make eating better a little bit easier for you - food that's convenient doesn't have to be full of junk.
All are organic and help towards your 5-a-day fruit and veg. Most are packed with vegetables. Many are also naturally low in fat, dairy-free and wheat-free.
Our heart and soul go into our products - we hope that you enjoy them.
This website is about all the different kinds of food available in restaurants and supermarkets, he benefits in health, taste and cost of all of them.
In the most recent fifty years vegetables on sale in the UK have lost 24% of their magnesium, 27% of their iron and 46% of their calcium. Beef has fewer of the omega-3 fats that once made it a healthy food. Milk from cows kept in sheds is depleted of vitamins and the cancer-fighting CLA that helped to make it into a fitness food
It is time to stop the rot! The campaign for real food begins with us, whether we shop at farmers' markets, organic suppliers or at supermarkets. We want to do what we can do to win the fight back for food that will stop us damaging our health - in fact, a fight for real food. So dig deeper and get more from your food.
Well-grown food is far more than fuel for the body. It is full of nutrients that build up the immune system and protect against disease attack. Traditional farmers knew this. They raised crops and livestock in ways that made their foods a rich storehouse of nutrients, not just protein and carbohydrates. At the heart of these traditional systems was a fertile, living soil.
Today the majority of farmers have turned their backs on this traditional wisdom. They use giant machines and a battery of industrial chemicals to force ever bigger crops from their over-worked fields. But the foods they grow no longer contain their full measure of nutrients. Fresh vegetables are depleted of essential trace elements. Milk and dairy products are robbed of omega-3s and other health-giving fats that protect against heart disease and cancers. Cereals and bakery products no longer contain the range of minerals and vitamins that once made them healthy foods.
If Britain and other western countries are to turn the tide on the current epidemic of chronic, degenerative diseases, it's time to call a halt to the failed experiment in industrial food production. It's time to restore fertile soils to the heart of food growing and put nutrient-rich foods back on the shelves of shops and supermarkets.
Enjoy healthy food, whether you're going out to a restaurant or cooking at home.

We believe healthy food is the right of everyone living on these islands, not just a well-off elite. All are entitled to the foods that flow from well-tried farming methods and fertile soils. The term "nutrient-rich" is not simply for a handful of high-priced premium products. It's one that should apply equally to the staple, everyday foods we rely on - meat, milk, eggs, fruits and vegetables. If we want them we can start a revolution - a revolution for real food.
