Papadoms, Bollywood style
Inspired by roadside dhabas dotting the national highways in India, an Indian-origin chef has opened a Bollywood-themed restaurant in Britain, a media report said. Called Papadoms, the restaurant is offering Indian street food at High Street West complex in the city of Sunderland, Sunderland Echo news portal reported. According to executive chef and owner Mr Sanjeev Sanghara, Sunderland is the perfect place to launch the restaurant that created at least 30 part-time jobs in the city.
“Most of the menu which also features handi and tiffin options is inspired by a trip to India,” Mr Sanghara was quoted as saying. “We launched the Papadoms pilot here to test new ideas in the market. There is a lot of competition from other Indian restaurants at this site,” Mr Sanghara added, saying that he plans to soon launch a chain of Papadoms restaurants. It is a great opportunity for us and a chance to bring a new style of cuisine to Sunderland, he noted. Sanghara’s family owns two traditional Indian restaurants in Scotland.
