About
Hi and thank you for visiting Leela's Kitchen. I am Kumar Menon the third generation from a family who traded in spices from the 1950's back in Kerala - India. I moved to the Isle of Man in 2003 a small island between Ireland and U.K as a catering student and fell in love with this beautiful island. I started Leela's kitchen four years ago in memory of my late grandma Leela - the inspiration behind my culinary journey. I also have a ten year old daughter named Leela who is very much interested in food and has recently travelled to India with me to check out the spice markets. I started operating my business offering healthy Indian cookery workshops to my clients at their residence. The business has grown from workshops to providing tailor made dinner parties, and bespoke marinated meats. As part of developing Leela's kitchen I launched my premium range of spices to the world - Eight freshly ground/whole spices hand packed on the Isle of Man, U.K. My love for healthy food made way to launch the new spice range that will be provided not only to the residents of Isle of Man, but also to clients across the globe who love fresh and healthy products. The Eight spices launched so far is Coriander powder, Turmeric powder, Chilli powder, Mild Curry Powder, Vindaloo curry powder (Authentic Goan recipe), Black mustard seeds, Garam masala and Black peppercorns (aka the Black gold). I hope you will all enjoy my spices - from my family to yours!! Your review is very important to me. Thankyou :)

Great workshop, delicious food.
May 2018 • Friends
I would like to recommend Kumar from Leela’s Kitchen.
We have booked Kumar from Leela's Kitchen twice to come to our house to run Indian cookery workshops.
A few days before the workshop he phones you to arrange what food you are going to have. Then on the day, he turns up with all the ingredients, and cooks the food in your kitchen.
While he is cooking, he explains what he is doing. Gives advice and tips. He often does something additional that was not part of the agreed menu, which highlights some of his products, such as chicken strips cooked in his Peri Peri spices, and pappadoms with pimped up mango chutney.
It is great fun having a drink with friends watching Kuma cook. Once the food is finished. Kumar serves it up. While you and your guests sit down to eat, Kumar tidies up.
Kumar also sells a great range of products that make it easy for you to obtain the good quality spices required to make the food for yourself next time.
A few days after the workshop Kumar sends the recipes for the food you had, so you can have a go at making it yourself.
Kumar is good to respond to any follow up questions you have about cooking the dishes he taught you. Or, cooking new Indian dishes using his spices. He regularly shares recipe ideas for you to try on his Facebook page.

Kumar visited us to prepare a delicious veg, rice and butter chicken dish for 6 people - expertly prepared. Kumar clearly loves what he does and is very good at it. Highly recommend Leela’s Kitchen for this special in-home dining experience, a treat for you and your guests.

Wonderful food!
Mar 2017 • Family
Kumar was an absolute star! He came up with 2 fantastic and relatively straightforward dishes for us to enjoy and his easy method for cooking perfect fluffy rice was amazing. Also loved delicately flavoured spiced water! We had a great evening and can't wait to try and replicate the dishes ourselves. The fragrance from the delicious cooking last Friday still lingers in the air!

fantastic birthday dinner party
Oct 2016 • Friends
Kumar arrived, gorgeous aromas started wafting out of the kitchen & before we knew it a wonderful dinner was served to us. The food was fantastic, we even had one member of our party who did not like food too spicy so Kumar cooked a separate portion for them. You would not know he had been in the kitchen it was spotless when he left after presenting the birthday girl with a bottle of bubbly!
many thanks Kumar

Excellent dinner party
Sep 2016 • Friends
Kumar came to our house to cook dinner for 7 people. He was so professional and tailored everything to our needs, and was such a lovely guy. The food was absolutely delicious - the onion bhajiis were amazing and the butter chicken curry was perfect. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. Book him now - he's seriously in demand!

Cookery class
Sep 2016 • Friends
My wife had booked Kumar for a cookery lessen for herself and 2 friends. I was fortunate to be able to tag alone and participate. Kumar's cooking and teaching were great. He kept his curries moderate for our taste and they were delicious. The onion bhajis were the best and lightest I have ever tasted, I will never buy a shop one again.
