An eccentric and charming cookbook from Dishoom, with over 100 recipes from the much-loved restaurants.
At long last, Dishoom share the secrets to their much sought-after Bombay comfort food: the Bacon Naan Roll, Black Daal, Okra Fries, Jackfruit Biryani, Chicken Ruby and Lamb Raan, along with Masala Chai, coolers and cocktails.
As you learn to cook the Dishoom menu, you will also be taken on a day-long tour of south Bombay, peppered with much eating and drinking. You'll discover the simple joy of early chai and omelette at Kyani and Co., of dawdling in Horniman Circle on a lazy morning, of eating your fill on Mohammed Ali Road, of strolling on the sands at Chowpatty at sunset or taking the air at Nariman Point at night.
This beautiful cookery book and its equally beautiful photography will transport you to Dishoom’s most treasured corners of Bombay. Read it, and you will find yourself replete with recipes and stories to share with all who come to your table.
