OUR STORY



Moonji was founded by Abilasha in 2018, shortly after returning from a 6 month backpacking trip journeying across Latin America. Whilst away, Abi found herself developing a new connection to her own north Indian heritage, and in particular the foods and flavours she grew up with and that reminded her of home in the UK, where she grew up in a household that celebrated an array of healthy foods and spices.

During her stays with Latino friends, she would cook Indian food with local vegetables and spices as a way of satisfying her cravings for the tastes that she missed. Many of those that she cooked for had never tried authentic Indian food, and their enthusiasm gave her a fresh appreciation for the unique spice blends and infusions that were so familiar to her. Most of all, it was the simple experience of sharing what she loved that gave her the inspiration for a business where she could do just this.

Meanwhile, Abi’s interest in Ayurveda and the health benefits of spices and superfoods developed while at University. While experiencing burnout and exhaustion from a challenging course and student lifestyle, she turned to cooking as a healing and restorative ritual. Making a simple chai, or golden mylk became her way of de-stressing and calming during times when she needed physical nourishment. After completing her Physics degree, her interest and passion for Ayurveda, adaptogens and moon mylks deepened, and have become the foundation for Moonji’s unique recipes.
