Nisha worked as a full time barrister for 20 years before giving up the security of the Bar to dedicate herself to her restaurants, her food writing and her curry evangelism. In 2018 Mowgli was awarded a placement in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list, and this year Nisha was recognised with an MBE in the 2019 New Year Honours list for services to the Food Industry.
Her passion for Indian food led her to become founder, CEO and executive chef of Mowgli Street Food restaurants in the UK, and author of three cook books.
Nisha regularly appears on television and radio as a restaurant, food and business expert.
She has a number of projects on going with the BBC, most recently appearing as a regular judge on BBC 2’s ‘Top of the Shop’.
