A Scots Indian restaurant is the first to go completely nut free in its dishes.
The Dhabba in Glasgow’s merchant city has become the first Indian restaurant in Scotland to offer people with nut allergies a kitchen where no nut dishes are manufactured.
Owner Navdeep Basi and his staff at the North Indian restaurant have ensured that no nuts will be used in their kitchen.
They have also contacted their suppliers to check how they process food in a bid to eradicate nuts in the ingredients they receive from elsewhere.
And whilst they cannot guarantee 100 per cent that some foods have not been packaged in facilities where nuts exist, they have tried to minimise the risk of this.
Navdeep said: “We are very conscious about the needs of our customers and the growing demand for nut free meals. At The Dhabba our chefs have found another way of making quality dishes that taste a lot better and have a similar texture.
We have even contacted our suppliers to check how they process food in a bid to eradicate nuts in the ingredients. We have tried out utmost to minimise the risks of having any nuts in our food and our kitchen process has been rigorous. There will no nuts or even mustard seeds used in our kitchens at all.
The only allergens on our menu now are a small bit of gluten, dairy and egg and we have recently launched a separate brand new vegan menu which has a wider choice.
A note on the restaurants menu now reads: “All the foods on our menu are prepared without using nuts, peanuts, sesame, mustard, celery, lupin and sulphites. Our standard operating procedure ensures that all the ingredients we use in our kitchen are free from these allergens. However, please note that some of the products we procure may have been packaged in facilities that also handle some of these allergens.”
