Seema’s Indian Kitchen – passionate about food…

Before the birth of her daughter (Priya who is now twelve) Seema Nahar worked in West London for St Martins Catering Company - who supplied the airlines at Heathrow Airport with prepared meals and supplied large retail chains including Tesco and Sainsbury’s . Previously she worked for a well established Indian Restaurant in Southall Broadway - Ealing, London. More recently she helped out briefly at Harlequin; they were considering setting up an all female Indian kitchen.

Seema took the decision to leave work to look after Priya, and now that Priya is going into second year at Hillhead Secondary she finally feels it is time to resume her own career. Seema has been considering setting up her own catering

business for some time now, as she has a passion for cooking and creating new dishes. Everybody who tries her vegetarian dishes loves them and she has quite a reputation amongst family and friends for producing mouth watering dishes. She is herself a vegetarian and has been all her life. When she lived in London there was a great choice for vegetarians, however, it is often quite difficult to find good vegetarian food, particularly Indian food in Glasgow.
