Our Story

My beautiful mum, Sobhna (her friends call her Sue) found herself locked out of the job market due to her age.

About this time my sister-in-law, Miranda, decided to set up a small stall selling biscuits and chutneys at the local Silverdale market. My mum would go with her to help look after my then six-month old niece, Xela. This was in 2008. Over time my mum started to become more involved in the market, helping with making chutneys, followed by samosa, pakora and spring rolls.

A few years later, Miranda decided to go back to work. My mum roped me into helping her so that she could carry on with her Sunday markets. Several years later, she added her curry paste, hot sauces and pickles range. She loves the process of buying whole spices, cleaning, roasting and grinding them and then blending them as she learnt to do with her mother.

Over the years my mum has a built a strong following of Indian food lovers on her Facebook page.
