Kamal grew up in Delhi in a huge joint family where food was always the focus of things. It was like the language of his family; the bonding factor. His roots in the food business took place at home where he realized the importance of the right mix and quality of ingredients to make mouthwatering dishes. From his grandparents he also picked up on nutrition and the healing value of foods and Indian spices.
Kamal has always wanted to show the world the royalty of Indian cuisine. His debut into the catering and fast food business was through Moghul Express and Moghul Catering as a partner. Shortly, Kamal bought over the Moghul Catering brand and business, and has grown it many folds. He started the famous fast food and Indian sweets (Mithai) business, Mithaas, in Nov 2006 and has grown it to 4 locations in New Jersey. Urban Spice, the Indian fine dining restaurant, threw open its doors shortly after Mithaas. He then got interested in a concept that explores the Indian cuisine beyond its traditional boundaries and caters to a more mainstream American palette. Papa Pancho, a pizza restaurant serving brick oven Italian pizzas with Indian ingredients and toppings opened in fall of 2013. Aarzu is Arora Hospitality’s latest venture. Located in Historic Downtown Freehold, Aarzu Modern Indian Bistro provides an exceptional upscale dining experience. When he is not working, Kamal likes to go trekking, eat out and try new recipes.
