Never Waste a Hot Oven

How an old saying prompted us to help hungry children

‘Our ovens are on, we have the ingredients and we know how to cook healthy and nutritious meals, why wouldn’t we want to help?’

It seems like such a small effort to make, but one that reaps huge rewards for the hundreds, now thousands of children and families that we are lucky enough to be in a position to help. Of course, we are not alone and we tip our hats to the supermarkets, restaurants, social clubs and community centre’s that provide so much support for families that might be struggling a wee bit.

We launched our effort during first lockdown, and what began as a quick message pushed out to our followers on social media quickly escalated into a full-scale fundraising drive, we were delighted, although not surprised, at the generosity of our friends as donation after donation came in.

This allowed us to purchase more fresh ingredients, cook more nutritious meals and help ease the pressure on families. Since then, we have continued to raise funds and cook meals, and today we prepare and distribute fresh dinners and lunches to schools across the region at holiday time.

Our main contribution is the cooking, with energy costs rising it just make sense that we use our facilities to cook ‘extra’, after all as the old saying goes ‘never waste a hot oven’.

Fabulous spread, and so much of it! Mandira catered for our family get together last weekend. There were 12 adults and plenty of food for us all. The samosas were the biggest hit, i was lucky to get one for myself. The food was delivered to our door, on time and in serving platters that went from oven to table. So easy to warm up and serve and some of the best curry dishes we’ve had. We will definitely be back for more. Thank you

What a superb experience! A group of nine visited the restaurant on Saturday 25 June and had an amazing time. The outside setting overlooking the Silent pool is lovely. The staff where excellent and considering the group size the meals all arrived together. The food itself was delicious, so flavoursome and every plate was emptied.

I highly recommend Mandira’s to one and all.

The biggest challenge for me cooking proper Indian food was the complexity and range of spices and ingredients and how to handle them. Mandira totally demystified and simplified the whole process. Exactly what you need to make awesome Indian cuisine. Thank you! Also how to cook rice properly without washing out the flavour or burning it to the base of a pan. That alone is enough to make the whole thing worthwhile. Brilliant 🙂
