 About Nandita

Hi ! Being born and raised in Punjab, food was celebrated in our household every single day . It was an expression of the different weather and moods ~ rainy days call for a hot cup of chai and pakoras and winters would mean mustard greens for breakfast with hot paranthas! Living close to my grandparents was a treat growing up as we sat around the table as one big family and lunches and dinners were always a big spread!

My urge to recreate my grandma’s and mum’s recipes rose when I was 18, freshly moved out of my home-country India, to the UK and living the student life of beans on toast back in the day. I would spend hours with my mum on the phone trying to perfect the lentils, curries, staple veggies and even the way she would cook her rice! Fast forward to when I got married and lived in the city, worked long hours, coming back home and cooking a steaming hot Indian meal became therapeutic. It was only when we moved to the countryside a few years ago that my love for cooking actually got direction and Curry Nights was born, in an attempt to introduce our fellow villagers to what we have grown up eating, flavours that are so close to our hearts. This passion to bring you the best of dishes from our motherland is fuelled by the love we got and continue to receive from people.


Our journey...

Curry Nights started back in 2021 over a casual dinner table conversation as we had recently moved from near London where we lived for over a decade, to the countryside with no accessibility to Indian food nearby. That led to a strong desire to bring our heritage food to everyone in our community and before we knew it, we were catering to not just our village, but also to the lovely people up in Middle Barton and Dunstew too. We now have a long established weekly takeaway trade operating from Heyford Park, just up the road!

Our Curry community has since grown and so have our dreams, of bringing our passion of Indian cuisine to many more food lovers! 
Having Punjabi roots, our core food flavours are very authentic to that region and all our recipes have been passed down generations ~ special thanks to my grandmother who even after she’s gone, continues to influence the way I cook whilst staying true to my roots!

We hope you will join us on this culinary journey and taste the culture of the east through our food.

From Our Customers

Can highly recommend Curry Nights, absolutely beautiful food! We had our works Christmas meal on Friday afternoon and Nandita cooked for 30 of us. Food was delicious and everyone was super impressed. This is the second year we have ordered for our works Xmas meal and I’m sure we will again next year (and many of us will again in between).

Omg I’ve been wanting to try these guys for ages and tonight I finally got around to it! Well it certainly didn’t disappoint! From the moment I opened the bag and inhaled the most amazing curry smell 🥰

The food was so delicious and authentic, incredible actually, like no Indian food I’ve ever tasted! Absolute flavour explosion and I’m not going to lie I even licked my plate!! 🤣😋

Thank you so much, great communication and I’ll definitely be ordering again!
