By now, everyone should be aware of the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal at the end of April. Tragically, a second major earthquake struck just two weeks after the first which has left nearly 8000 dead and thousands more injured. With earthquakes come aftershocks which can be as lethal. Schools and homes have been destroyed and the Nepalese need as much help as possible to not only help rebuild their infrastructure but to survive on a day to day basis. I’ve had the pleasure of working with a lot of Gurkas in Nepal in the past as part of my day job so it really hits home just how lucky we are and how they help support the UK. Now it’s our turn to help them, no matter how little.

Doing their part are Mother India Glasgow who are hosting a three course charity lunch this Sunday 17th May with all proceeds going to charity. For £18.50 per person (or £8 for children), you will be able to select from a set menu what you’d like to have for lunch knowing that your donation will go some way to help those in need. 

The menu consists of:


  • Ginger & Green Chilli Fish Pakora (a personal favourite of mine)
  • Chicken Pakora
  • Vegetable Pakora
  • Aubergine Fritters (these are delicious!)


  • Lamb Rogan Josh
  • Turka Daal
  • Butter Chicken
  • Malabari Prawn Curry
  • You’ll also have your choice naan bread and rice included. 


  • Gulab Jamin
  • Selection of Ice Cream

For £18.50, it’s great value for money for the quality of food that Mother India produces and I have to commend them on donating all proceeds to charity. Hopefully more restaurants will do this in the future to do their part to help those at home and abroad.
