Authentic Indian Cooking
My name is Anjula Devi, I run my own Indian catering company and provide private lessons in Indian cookery. I also sell my own range of food products under the ‘Route 207’ brand.
I was raised in Southall in the early 1970s and my father was my food inspiration. At that time Indian ingredients were not as readily available as they are now and I remember travelling on the number 207 bus with my father to Shepherd’s Bush Market where we were able to buy a selection of spices, fresh fish and Indian vegetables.
I loved coming home with all these ingredients, intrigued and excited about what I was going to be taught. My father believed in simple food – healthy and wholesome Indian cooking which he had been taught himself by his own father in Kenya, using the fresh vegetables that they picked from their farm.
My mission is to pass on this wealth of accumulated knowledge along with some of my own special recipes and creations and to promote authentic Indian food with the use of fresh produce and balanced spices to create wonderful, delicious and nutritious meals.
