THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
'A love letter to Bombay told through food and stories, including their legendary black daal' Yotam Ottolenghi
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 comforting Dishoom menu at home, 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 an eccentric and charming Bombay. Read it, and you will find yourself replete with recipes and stories to share with all who come to your table.
'This book is a total delight. The photography, the recipes and above all, the stories. I've never read a book that has made me look so longingly at my suitcase' Nigel Slater
This book is a total delight. The photography, the recipes and above all, the stories. I've never read a book that has made me look so longingly at my suitcase -- Nigel Slater
There are few cookbooks that immerse you in their subject so thoroughly and so lovingly as Dishoom. Part travel guide, part history, part food manual, this reads like a personal diary with a stonking recipe collection as a bonus. I could eat the Mattar Paneer every week and I probably will, with a Chilli Cheese Toast chaser -- Lulu Grimes
Like its carefully observed, pitch perfect restaurants, Dishoom's cookbook is a feast for all the senses, and brings the restaurant's delicious dishes into the home kitchen. Every page is begging to be pored over and cooked from, each picture leaping from the page with atmosphere and generosity. It's a gorgeous thing -- Rosie Birkett

I absolutely love Dishoom and I'm so happy that some of my fave dishes are in this cookbook (lamb chops, vada Pau and gunpowder potatoes etc.)
For me I'm just interested in the recipes themselves and not the history behind it but if I get time I will defo check it out.
I like how I've seen that some recipes it will offer an alternative e.g. 12 fresh curry leaves OR 3tsp dried curry leaves. For me, that's helpful!
The quality of the book itself is amazing as well, £20 is a lot for me to spend on a cookbook or any book for that matter but I feel like the quality of the book itself and most importantly all the recipes it has is definitely worth it.
I'm Asian myself but I am absolutely cack at cooking asian dishes but these recipes are really detailed and tell you how to make everything including any spice blends they add.
OH and a nice little thing they have towards the end are menu ideas! So for Eid or Diwali etc., gives you some inspiration on what to dishes to cook which I think is nice.
I am honestly so excited to cook all my favourites, I might finally be a decent cook :) I think I'm most excited about the chops.... the fact that I can have them whenever I want.... the dream
