Azmina Govindji talks healthy Asian cooking, live at London Mela

Popular South Asian flour brand Elephant Atta has teamed up with well-known broadcaster, author and nutritionist Azmina Govindji for London Mela 2009. The Mela is one of the largest free outdoor celebrations of Asian culture in London and will be held at Gunnersbury Park on Sunday 16th August.

Azmina, the resident dietitian for BBC1’s The One Show, will be holding live cookery demonstrations at the Elephant Atta stand, showing mela-goers how to cook some of her very own healthy, tasty and easy to make recipes including ‘Bombay Aloo’ and ‘Tawa Vegetables’.

And when it comes to making the perfect chapatti, Elephant Atta suggests mixing 100 parts Elephant Atta medium to 60 parts water, to accompany any family meal or dish.

Azmina Govindji said:

“I’m very happy to be coming to the London Mela to share my recipes and healthy eating tips. Chapatti flour, especially the medium and wholemeal varieties, is an integral part of the South Asian diet. I want to show people how they can make healthy and tasty dishes to accompany their chapattis without spending hours in the kitchen”.

Elephant Atta Brand Manager Hina Sharma said:

“Elephant Atta has been a staple in South Asian households across the UK for more than 45 years. Elephant Atta Medium makes great tasting, soft and fluffy chapattis which are naturally low in sugars, naturally low in fat and a source of fibre as well.*’
Elephant Atta wants to encourage more people to consider healthier ingredients when cooking at home and having Azmina at the London Mela stand is one way to show how easy it can be”.

Alongside live cookery demonstrations and fresh samples of chapatti and naan bread tasters, 5000 lucky visitors will also get an Elephant Atta goodie bag, which contains a 1.5kg complimentary bag of Elephant Atta.
