‘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 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 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

The best Indian cookbook out! Length:: 0:13 Mins As a regular to Dishoom restaurants in London I was excited when this was realised. The book arrived today and I’m really excited to try the recipies.The book is so well put together with almost 400 pages, stunning images and a little history of the dishes. The dishes are all seperated by the breakfast, lunch etc.The book contains the recipes for most of the dishes that are served in the restaurant and I can’t wait to try them…

Initial disappointment I’d really looked forward to this book being published. It will probably appeal to a wide audience but I am unsure if I will keep the book. It’s part ode to Bombay, part cookbook. The first recipe is on page 36. For someone who cooks quickly, it isn’t easy to navigate through the book. Between every brief section of recipes there are multiple pages of travelogue and photos. For those interested in the history and culture of the city this will be of interested. I however just want to be able to…

“For something to truly succeed, it must have a little poetry at the heart of it” As an avid – almost compulsive – collector of recipe books, I have to say that this is a truly wonderful book. The recipes, the stories, the illustrations, the design, the aesthetic presentation, the sheer volume of information and inspiration is astounding. Dishoom – yet again you have outdone yourselves. Fantastic. Without a doubt, Rashmi Thakrar, wherever he might be, is extremely proud.
