R. Hariharan, proprietor of V. Raju Iyer Catering, is busy taking orders ahead of the Deepavali season – for sweets and savouries.
“This year, as always, we will be making traditional Laddu, Badusha, jangiri, Mysore pak and Guava Cake. My customers order the same kind of sweets year-on-year. They prefer traditional laddu over motichur laddu,” says Hariharan, who has a team of 20 people working overtime in his kitchen.
Hariharan takes up bulk orders and delivers them to their homes. He will start work this weekend and by November 6 the first set of parcelled orders will go out.
These are parcels that are shipped to clients in Singapore, the USA and in Dubai.
In Chennai, the delivery will start on Nov.10. “People can place orders till the 9th,” he says.
In savouries, the options are special Mixture, Kara sev, Butter murukku and Omapodi, each costing Rs 600 per kilo. The cost of traditional Laddu, Badusha, Jangiri and Mysore pak costs Rs 650 per kilo.
V. Raju Iyer Catering has been in the food business for 50 years.
