Telling our stories through authentically Indian food prepared, frozen, and delivered with love.
I am Sumith. A professional chef, food photographer, food stylist, and blogger. And I love to share the serene experience of masterfully mixing flavours, colours, and textures of the influential Indian cuisine.
25 years and counting.
My journey with food began when I started working for top hotels in Mumbai, India. This led me to cook for an international cruise line, experience a variety of cultures, and hear different stories. I moved to the UK, and in the past 18 years, I worked as a chef for top hotels in Manchester. This further elevated my skills in cooking, allowing me to run my restaurant.
What we do:
We are on a mission to help people who are rushed by life. Those who have very little time to enjoy an unhurried dining experience. So I made it my mission to make authentic, hand-prepared, and all-natural Indian food accessible to these people.
Yes, all-natural! We only use fresh ingredients to prepare the food we deliver. Our target market may be people who prefer quick and easy, but we are here to charm you with delicious and healthy food delivered when you need them.
We aim to knock the socks off your local takeaways.
How we do it:
KeralasLive values the idea that you are what you eat. So we made it possible for people to get access to healthy and delicious food, delivered when you need them. Imagine the myriad of benefits you will get from eating healthy.
- More energy to do what you love.
- More time to spend with people who matter.
- Zero pots and pans to clean.
- A more positive mood throughout the day.
Do we deliver food in bulk? Yes! We understand you want food you can quickly get from the fridge and into the microwave in seconds. And that is what we are here to do, but with a little twist.
We know you already have so much on your plate, but allow us to add more… in a delicious and positive kind of way.
Browse our shop and find the next delicious meal you will enjoy on the go.

The only part of India I have visited is the south, and Kerala is where I spent most of my time. I loved the food there, and so I suspect I shall enjoy your recipes. They look beautiful. Do you work in a restaurant? Your work seems too fine to just be for the blog. So glad your visit to Midwest Maize brought me to Keralaslive.
Thank you Cynthia for stopping by. Very glad to hear, your visit to my home town and you liked it. Yes the food there is amazing and you can expect the same in my blog too. Yes I am a chef by profession. Nice to read your blog too.
I see you have now visited my Waltzing Australia blog, as well. But it is in my blog, The World’s Fare, that I rhapsodize about my time in Kerala. Here’s that post, if you’re interested. So more than I had space for in one post, but it was definitely a memorable trip. https://worldsfare.wordpress.com/2009/07/09/kerala—the-spice-state/ (And there is nothing in the post you wouldn’t already know about the food in Kerala, but I thought it at least showed that I was serious when I said I loved the cuisine.)
Thank you Cynthia for sharing this link. I am so happy you had an amazing holiday in our little Kerala. You really jogged me into some nice old good memories in Kerala. It’s truly said we have more coconuts than the stars in the sky!! Beautiful photographs with an amazing description. Really enjoyed the read!!
