A former travel writer of Indian heritage, born in the UK, Mira is an important new voice in Indian food and wellness. Having suffered from digestion issues and become obsessed with dieting, Mira began to look for a healthier way of eating and found it in the traditional vegetarian and vegan recipes of her mother and grandmother, who are from the Gujarati region of India. She has brought these recipes up to date to create lighter, more wholesome Indian dishes. From chilli kick grain bowls and masala grilled aubergines to saffron muesli and brown rice kheer with poached cinnamon apples, Mira’s food is colourful, fragrant and full of flavour.
Mira’s recipes have featured in Stylist, Red Magazine, The Independent, Grazia, Healthy Magazine, Waitrose Magazine and Women’s Health, and she has featured on BBC radio. Her first book, Saffron Soul was published by Jacqui Small. Mira gives talks to promote healthy eating and wellness at venues such as Divertimenti, as well as running Indian supper clubs, yoga brunches and retreats. She has also appeared at RHS Tatton Park and Wimbledon Park Food Festival.
Based in London, Mira is interested in events and other opportunities around Indian vegetarian food, vegan food and wellbeing.
