Indian cuisine could soon be on the school menu after children from St Peter’s School in Lympstone enjoyed their visit to Denleys in Topsham.

Jamil Miah, proprietor of the restaurant, had been asked by the school to give a demonstration to help the pupils learn about Indian culture. A total of 46 children turned up to the High Street eatery and were taught how to use a tandoori oven and shown how to make naan breads.

Jamil said: “It amazed them that it only takes 20 minutes to make naan bread.

“They seemed to enjoy it and said they really appreciated it.”
