Last Saturday we hosted our Indian Street Food supper club. Our intention from the beginning was to showcase what authentic Indian street food is all about to our guests. I’ve been lucky enough to travel to India several times (over 15!). It’s a truly amazing country full of so much vibrancy, colour, culture and (of course) amazing food. The vastness of Indian cuisine never ceases to amaze me. From the delicious paper thin dosas in South India cooked on hot plates, to mouth watering North Indian Afghani chicken roasted in charcoal tandoors, there are so many different types of appetising dishes on offer! India’s huge range of cuisines can be seen best on the streets. Stopping at a road side vendor for a quick snack, on the way to work or whilst running errands in the city is a way of life for Indians. On one street you may see road side vendors serving up anything from hot samosas and spicy aloo tikkis to freshly pressed sugar cane juice!
Re-creating street food back in Manchester is one of my favourite things to do in the kitchen. In preparation of our street food supper club, Ma and I created a feast of a menu for our guests to enjoy..
We received some lovely feedback from our guests. Reading such comments are what makes supper-clubbing all worth it..

We had a fantastic time hosting our Indian Street Food supper club. A significant proportion of the donations made to us are given to charity. On Saturday night our guests helped to raise over £80 for our nominated charity Narayan Seva who help young adults and children to get over Polio & other conditions so a big thank you to all of you who joined us!
See you soon!
