To an outsider, Indian cooking can be overwhelming, akin to a jigsaw puzzle incapable of solution. The reason is simple: not until long ago, there was no recorded text for Indian Cuisine. Recipes were handed from generation to generations, by virtue of oral tradition. As a consequence, each recipe is open to interpretation and there is no standard recipe to work from. Moreover, Indian cuisine varies from region to region, and the tastes, colors, and textures of the same delicacy can change every few miles.
At Koyla, interpretation of the recipes were handed down through the roots of the chef’s family and perfected in kitchen of the restaurant. Koyla’s belief is that Indian cooking is based on three major factors: choice of ingredients, their proportions and quantities and most importantly, the timing of adding ingredients during cooking.
Deep Singh, after having worked for more than a decade watching chefs create countless creations, and experimenting himself to further tweak those recipes, he decided to create his own, Koyla Charcoal Authentic Indian Restaurant was born. Till this day, Deep Singh, his staff and Koyla Charcoal Authentic Indian Cuisine Restaurant has and will remain close to their roots of Indian.
