Deccan Tiffin - unique sauces for Indian chaat, street snacks and kebabs
Ever since I can remember, I have had a passion for the richness and variety of food in India. This was heightened when I left India to live in the UK in the 80s. All of a sudden, everything I took for granted was not available and I had to start cooking seriously to recreate that taste of home. I always dreamed of having a food business, and November 2012 was my 'now or never' moment. It has been a hard slog to establish myself and not easy in a market where everything about Indian food already seems to have been done or said. But I feel I have a unique voice because of my upbringing and deep understanding of Indian flavours and cooking techniques.
I was born to Maharashtrian parents and spent my childhood in Delhi, watching my mother and many 'aunties' creating wonderful chaat dishes and kebabs in their kitchens. I later spent 12 years in the southern city of Hyderabad, learning first hand how to cook classics such as idlis and vadas. All of these wonderful dishes were always served with fresh homemade sauces and you can experience that truly Indian taste with my range of sauces and spices at Deccan Tiffin.
