The Dosa specialises in cooking authentic Indian Street food: chicken curries, wraps filled with spicy potatoes (the dosas), crisp onion bhajis, dahls and a range of delicious vegetarian curries.
This is the food I grew up eating – having been born in India and watching my mother cook every day.
Loving her food, I trained to be a professional chef, came to the UK and worked across the catering industry – from 5 star hotels to village-based bistros.
After 15 years in catering, I set up The Dosa in 2013, based in Calderdale.
The food I cook is different from most curries you will eat in Britain: the recipes come mainly from my family. I use fresh ingredients, cook every dish from scratch and it is all gluten free.
I do not use any pre-prepared sauces or any colourings or artificial flavourings. I love to cook outside – like the street vendors I grew up around.
So now I am based in the markets at Hebden Bridge and Todmorden –where the food has been extremely well received.
I am now expanding to cater for local festivals and events.
