AN INDIAN restaurant chain has announced it will move into the Westgate Centre next month.

Mowgli Street Food was founded in 2014 by former barrister and food writer Nisha Katona.

She has written cookery books Pimp My Rice and The Spice Tree and is well known to viewers of ITV’s Lorraine, on which she has a regular slot.

Mowgli Street Food said it focuses on ‘modern, healthy and light and flavoursome dishes’ and already has restaurants in Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.

Ms Katona, who is now the company’s chief executive, said: “Mowgli is all about the fresh, light zing of an Indian home kitchen​. The menu is entirely comprised of dishes from my family’s recipes - so this is how it tastes to dine at my grandmother’s Varanasi stove.

“I take curry virgin chefs on principle and teach them one-on -one in the ancient Hindu culinary philosophy. It is utterly humbling that Mowgli has found a place in the heart of the nation.”
