Veeraswamy to cater for the Queen at Buckingham Palace

Veeraswamy restaurant on London's Regent Street has been chosen by the Queen to cater for the reception she is hosting at Buckingham Palace on 27 February, to mark the launch of the 2017 UK-India Year of Culture.

The 2017 UK-India Year of Culture will celebrate the 70th anniversary of India's independence through a year-long programme of events and exhibitions which will take place in both countries.

Veeraswamy, which won a Michelin star in the 2017 guide, will serve Indian themed canapés prepared with royal chefs to a variety of guests from the UK and India including from the fields of performing arts, fashion, food, literature and sport.

The menu will include: tandoor prawn cocktail; paneer squares with herb crust; salmon kedgeree croquette; hung yoghurt kebab on crisp wafer; soya gujjias; pineapple and almond halwa tart, and boondi and chocolate rock.

Ranjit Mathrani, Namita Panjabi and Camellia Panjabi are the directors of the MW Eat Group which operates Veeraswamy, Chutney Mary, Amaya and Masala Zone restaurants.

Mathrani said: "This is a rare and privileged opportunity for Veeraswamy to collaborate again with Buckingham Palace for this significant occasion. The past year has been a momentous one for Veeraswamy, as it commemorated its 90th anniversary in the same month that HM The Queen celebrated her 90th birthday - and the restaurant also achieved a coveted Michelin star in September."

This is the second time that Veeraswamy will have catered for a reception hosted by the Queen. They first hosted in October 2009 as part of the programme to launch the state visit of the president of India.
