Interview with Lalita Kumari: Award winning authentic Indian Food
Lalita’s business, Indian Street Food, offers a true authentic and traditional taste of North Indian Food. Their meals are ideal for all occasions, be it a lunchtime at your desk a great night in watching T.V. with company. Indian Street Foods aims to serve high quality, fresh homemade food and is made and produced with the finest fresh ingredients. They can cater for both asian and western markets.
How long have you been making India food?
I was born and grew up in the Midlands and was a sensible child. I inherited my Mum’s cooking skills from a young age and used to really enjoy watching her cooking & I particularly enjoyed the aromas.
What inspired you to start the business?
I started my business in May 2017 alongside my healthcare job. I was inspired by making snacks and dishes for my daughter who has been a big inspiration for my unique outcomes. This has now turned into a business and with the support of my loving hubby and son if I can pursue this dream. I would be lost without them and would be where I am today. But most of all my customers feedback loyalty keeps me going.
