Northdale brothers release Indian cookery DVD

2010-02-08 00:00

FOLLOWING the success of their website,, three brothers have launched a cookery DVD.

Jeremiah, Jude and Josiah Padayachee of Northdale launched the DVD in December last year. According to Jeremiah, the idea for the DVD came from the website’s success.

“Part of the website is cooking and baking,” he said, “most searches are for cooking.”

The boys realised just how much they appreciated Indian food when they were left to source it themselves.

“When my mum and dad were on holiday, we tried cooking,” Jeremiah said. “We had to keep phoning to find out what goes in next!”

Wanting to give their parents a peaceful break, the brothers turned to technology for help.

“We searched the net for how to cook curries,” Jeremiah explained. There they discovered a variety of Indian cooking styles.

“People in India cook very differently to Indians in South Africa,” said Jeremiah, “South African Indian cooking is unique.”

The trio took a hands-on approach in creating the DVD: Jude filmed the footage, Josiah worked on the layout and Jeremiah headed the marketing.

Working with family wasn’t difficult for the boys. “We get along well,” said Jude.

Jeremiah added the only problem was that “our mum kept answering the phone while we were filming”.
