Plans unveiled for new specialist Indian food shop in Alrewas

A new specialist Indian food shop could open in Alrewas if plans get the go-ahead.

An application has been submitted to Lichfield District Council to transform a property at 22 Main Street into a tea room.

If planning chiefs give the scheme the green light, family run business KherIndia would offer regional Indian snacks, spices and chutneys.

A statement outlining the plans says: “The business will operate from a specially converted garage to provide three or four tables, with up to ten covers and cooking facilities.

“There is an Indian restaurant in Alrewas which opens in the evening but, similar to other Indian restaurants in the area, offers standard curries, snacks and a limited sweet menu.

“Supermarkets, too, offer a limited range of standard cooking sauces, which lack creativity and are packed with preservatives, salt and sugar. Neither traditional Indian restaurants nor supermarkets provide the most popular regional snacks, such as Idli, Dosa, Pani Poori.

“KherIndia aims to offer a different type of Indian menu. It will provide a healthier range of traditional Indian sweet and savoury snacks to both local and internet customers.”

Full details of the plan can be seen on Lichfield District Council’s website.
