Know More - Background and Foreground


Our Story


Our Co-Founder Priya R Dass started his food journey in 2009 after his MBA at Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, with the express goal of making the first ever Indian food chain in the world like Panda Express or Chipotle. After 5 years of trials and tribulations, he developed the concept of ‘disruptive eating’ which we practice and promote at Nirmal cafe so as to combine our mission and the goal. The packaged ‘HPPed Curry’ has potential to make Indian food accessible and affordable to all.
