Lajina Leal


Lajina from Telford runs ‘Lajina Masala,’ sharing the secrets of her Indian kitchen with children, families, friends, groups, one to one, corporate team building and with us at ‘The Great British Food Festival!’

The business was born out of a conversation with a friend, and now she’s hosting regular dinner parties in peoples homes as well as teaching those who have never sliced an onion to cook their own curry, bhajis, samosas, chap-patties and accompaniments. In less than two years of operating, Lajina had been a bursary winner at a Food Festival and won “Most Innovative Business Award” with her original pot of ‘spice’ which sells in outlets across the county as well as on line.

Her passion is good, healthy and tasty authentic home-style Indian food, creating the same bold flavours that are naturally low in fat, sugar, salt and gluten-free.
