I’m Kumar Menon, I am originally from Kerala – Indian. I moved to the Isle of Man in 2003 a small island between Ireland and U.K. as a catering student. It wasn’t long before I fell in love with this island so much that it is my second home now.
I started Leela’s Kitchen in 2011 in memory of my late grandmother Leela. My grandmother and mother are the inspiration behind my passion for food especially Indian food, spices and the culinary journey. To continue the family tradition and journey my daughter Leela is also interested in food and spices.
The key reason to start Leela’s Kitchen was to start offering healthy Indian cookery workshops to clients at their residence in Isle of Man, U.K. The business has grown from cookery workshops to providing tailor made dinner parties, bespoke marinated meats and Award winning premium spices & Award winning Onion bhaji mix.
Spices are also a family legacy (business); my grandfather started trading spices way back in 1950’s out in Jew town, Kerala, India. This makes me a third generation spice trader. My love for great food and association with spice business aspired me to launch new premium range of spices not just to the Isle of Man but to the world. Lot of my spices are actually family recipes … Garam Masala, Mild Curry (Great taste award) and Vindaloo (authentic goan recipe, great taste award) my grand mother’s, mothers’ and aunt’s recipes respectively.
All my spices are GM free & non-irradiated freshly grounded and hand packed in Isle of Man, U.K. and shipped to any where in the world to anyone who love fresh and healthy products.
Here are the spices I have launched so far… Garam Masala, Mild Curry Powder (Great taste award), Coriander Powder, Turmeric Powder (Great taste award), Chilli Powder, Vindaloo Curry Powder (Authentic award winning Goan recipe), Black Mustard seeds, Black Peppercorns (aka the Black gold) (Great taste award), Peri-Peri rub (Great taste award), Ground cumin & Mango and Red Habenero chilli sauce with a hint of lime (Great taste award), Onion Bhaji mix (Quality food awards U.K – Winner), Chai-licious – Masala Chai tea (Quality food awards U.K – Shortlisted).
I believe in providing you with bright, fresh spices that will help you make nutritious, scrumptious food with ease. Hope you all enjoy Leela’s Kitchen spices – from my family to yours!!
