Whipping up Indian treats for Swedish cottage industry

4:53 min

When you move to Sweden, how do you satisfy your hunger for food you can only seem to find back at home? One way is to make it your business to prepare those foods yourself, as Radio Sweden found out.

Radio Sweden got a glimpse into a cottage industry supplied by the late night labors of women who've moved here from India, and who are cooking foods that they had trouble finding when they relocated: from Indian vegetarian meals to desserts, and even customized cakes.
