A teacher by profession and a cook by passion, Asma Khan has been in the home-cooking business since the last six years. There is nothing that she doesn’t make from your typical Awadhi food or baked desserts. Her specialty – she makes more than 38 types of kebabs itself! You can also order rare delicacies like Haleem and Khichda from Asma. And to top it all, the spices used in her cooking are grown at her family farm – no wonder her food tastes delicious. Asma takes party orders for large gatherings, but just needs to be informed a couple of days in advance. Otherwise for a party of 5-6 people, she needs to be told 4-5 hours prior.

Raina Pandey’s passion for cooking has given shape to Raina’s Kitchen. Raina has a pre-set menu that you can choose from and what we absolutely love is that she cooks Indian as well as other cuisines with great aplomb. She also couriers food to her clients in places like Mumbai and Delhi. We absolutely love the variety of kebabs she does and we cannot stop digging our spoons into the Lemon and Butter Fish. The Laal Maas dish she whips up is also quite a hit! For lunch, you need to place an order an evening before, while for dinner, you need to place an order by 2 p.m. of that day. Raina takes large party orders and can easily cater for 150 to 200 guests. She home delivers. You can also order her food through Swiggy and Zomato.
