Elior UK and Ivor Peters, also known as the Urban Rajah, have launched the Urban Rajah Indian Street Kitchen in 120 Taylor Shaw secondary schools and colleges across the UK.

Only previously available in B&I & universities, the Urban Rajah Indian Street Kitchen range offers a ‘unique blend’ of nutritious, delicious food with an original twist.

Its school compliant menu has been specially adapted for different tastes, introducing pupils to diverse global street food with its Indian-inspired wraps, sliders and noodles plus some scintillating spiced sides.

The Urban Rajah said: “Indian street food is transforming perceptions of Indian cuisine in the UK, fusing the much loved essence of traditional Indian cuisine with a more modern hand-held and casual dining format.

“Together with Taylor Shaw, we’re going to excite people’s taste buds with modern Indian street food and give schools a taste of the Indian subcontinent. The spirit of the concept is to re-tell the story of Indian food in the UK, much like myself it’s born Britain but spiced by India!”

The menu consists of:

Buroti: Indian-style Burrito wraps packed with chicken or vegetarian options, soaked in spices and accompanied by fragrant basmati rice and chutneys.

Pav Bhaji: Much like a slider or burger, this hand-held fast food dish from Mumbai is ‘perfect’ for students on the go. Served in a soft toasted brioche bun, tempting creations such as Bombay Bolognese and saag aloo tikki are crowned with a refreshing Desi Leaf Salad and warming chutney.

Indo-Chinese: Taking two of the globe’s most popular cuisines and slamming them together to create ethnic con-fusion. The blending of these food cultures has been happening across the Indian sub-continent for some time now, as Chinese communities have grown and flourished. The result is a distinct ‘gastronomic sub-culture’.
