Mohr: pronounced ‘moore ‘ – the Hindi word for peacock.

Indian culture has said to be older than 5,000 years, creating a rich and complex history and set of traditions. Along with its culture and traditions the food of each region of India, north, south west and east has also developed and grown distinctly different.

Unique regional climates and difficulty in transportation across a vast country led to each region developing its own local produce and style of cooking. The most obvious contrast being the northerners preferring meat and bread and the southerner’s dependence on pulse and rice.

Mohr Indian’s style of cooking from simple flame roasted bread to the carefully prepared sauces individual unique and delicious focuses on the northern region, tracing back to the 11th century AD Persian ancestors and to the more influential 16th century AD Moguls who brought with them Persian and Afghan cooks.
