About Us

Chef Akila is our 75-year-old Indian mum living in Yorkshire. We researched and tweaked her famous recipes with the help of experts like doctors, nutritionists etc., and made them very healthy. Our food is Snap-Frozen within minutes of cooking using special equipment. Snap-Freezing locks-in all the flavours and nutrition and is safer. We don’t add preservatives, colours or chemicals. Our food will taste as delicious as you cooked freshly at home – or we’ll refund your money.
