Annapurna is the Divine Mother, the Goddess who blesses us with food in abundance. She is the source of all nourishment.
In India, food is regarded as a sacred offering to Brahman, the highest consciousness or Supreme Reality – that which is at once the offering, the offered and the receiver of the offering. Annapurna means ‘food for the whole being’.
Indian food is a mosaic evolved from many influences and cultures – Turkish, Persian, Afghan cuisines blending with the local and regional specialties. From this rich heritage we have chosen a selection of dishes that are particularly well suited to the Tasmanian palate.
Our spices and herbs have been stone ground in the traditional manner and our specialties cooked according to the ancient principles of the princely houses. Our Indian breads are cooked in the unique Tandoori style, using a clay oven.
