A taste of India
A Perthshire-based entrepreneur has seen
sales of his premium frozen curries rocket
since the beginning of lockdown, with his
company's monthly turnover more than
doubling since the beginning of March.
Award-winning Praveen Kumar Authentic
Indian Cuisine, by restauranteur Praveen
Kumar and his team, has authentic Indian
curries cooked for more than a decade
at the chef's award-winning Indian
restaurant, Tabla, and subsequently at
Praveen's successful Indian Cook School,
both based in Perth, Scotland. The team
of chefs use the finest fresh ingredients
in the UK, coupled with spices imported
from Kumar's home village in Southern
India. The meals are then immediately
frozen to seal in the freshness and taste.
Appetite for these authentic curries has
grown exponentially since the start of the
pandemic in March, with customers all
over the UK ordering the curries to eat at
home while restaurants and pubs are shut
due to lockdown.
As well as delivering the frozen curries
in a sustainable manner to numerous
locations across the UK, customers can
buy them from an ever-growing network
of independent stores, farm shops and
delis across Scotland.
Kumar, comments, "We're delighted
with the success of the business to date.
It really seems to have taken off during the
pandemic as consumers look to recreate
that authentic Indian dining experience,
but in the comfort of their own home."
