About Navjot

Navjot  Arora, Executive Chef and co-owner of Chutney Masala Indian Bistro, grew up in Jalandhar Punjab, India, and graduated from one of the country’s most prestigious culinary schools, the Institute of Hotel Management in New Delhi. He then completed a management training program at the Taj Group of Hotels in India where he received numerous awards and trained the incoming students.
Arora and his wife, Anu, moved to New York City where he put to work his experience and passion for healthy Indian cuisine as the Executive Chef of the critically acclaimed Café Spice Restaurant Group.

Arora’s fascination with food began as a young boy when he was put in charge of preparing the mint chutney for the family’s evening meal. It required that he pick the fresh mint leaves from the garden and puree the ingredients using a mortar and pestle—a method he still employs to derive the most vibrant flavors from herbs and spices.
