Naughty Boy used to taxi his mum's food to work

NAUGHTY Boy used to get his mother to send her homemade meals to his studio every day via a taxi.

The 30-year-old DJ - whose real name is Shahid Khan - has admitted he was fed up of living off microwave meals when he went to the studio so would get his mum to cook up a fresh dinner for him and send it over in a hired car.

He explained: "I come from a Pakistani Muslim family in Watford - my mum would cook a different meal every day from scratch. I loved it. In the studio I didn't have that - I had microwave meals - I got a bit disheartened."

But after he racked up a taxi bill of £3000, the producer decided to teach himself how to cook and now creates food that, he thinks, tastes like a "party in your mouth."

He said: "It's got to have chillies in it. I want people to know about my cooking.

"You don't need to have all the gadgets - I use a halogen oven and grill and I have a tiny fridge and sink."

And one person who has already approved his yummy food is his mum, who was blown away with his tasty rice.

He added to the Independent newspaper: "I made her lamb pilau rice the other day and she said it was 10 out of 10 - this is one of my proudest moments. Home-cooked food, of any cuisine, can't be replaced by restaurants. There's some kind of spirit that goes into food cooked at home."
