ABOUT US

In 1972, when my Mother (Varsha Varu) was only 10 years old, the Dictator of Uganda, Idi Amin demanded that all Asians including our family should leave the country within 3 months. Having UK passports they decided to move to England. Even through all of the struggle and uncertainty, food has always been at the heart of my family’s home.

I can remember one special family occasion when I was 10 years old admiring a stack of rotis, that were higher than the pint of beer that my uncle was drinking. The irresistible smell of the cooking and aromatic spices drifting throughout the house is something that will always stay with me and inspire me.

These unique, authentic and totally delicious recipes have been passed down over many generations, dating back hundreds of years to the province Gujarat in the western coastal region of India.

Being massively inspired by my Mum and her sister’s fabulous cooking skills provided the catalyst to enable me to sow the seeds for the ‘Chilli Kitchen’ journey.

Always at the back of my mind was the thought of wanting to share these incredible recipes, especially with my friends but also with the wider community. In my late teens the idea developed further and then when I became 20 I started making plans to create a high quality Indian street food business.
