Hyderabadi Chicken Korma

There is such a variety of Kormas within regions of India; each using their unique techniques of cooking and ingredients that are synonymous with local communities. One of the most popular dishes from my cook book Indian Kitchen was the Hyderabadi green chicken masala. Apart from the inclusion of coriander & mint making it such a stand […]

Tandoori Fish Tikka

One of the most common dishes at seafood restaurants across Mumbai will always include Tandoori Pomfret. Pomfret was the preferred choice fish when I grew in the city. A flat fish, delicate and flaky which takes to the marinade and charred smokey tandoor flavours  really well. Buying pomfret was always a luxury (for us at least!) […]

Maharashtrian Karanji

A happy holi to everyone celebrating; a festival of colours and feasting over some delicious Indian sweets.

Known in Mumbai and across the Maharashtrian community as Karanjis; they are little fried pastries stuffed with fresh […]

With the Bay of Bengal to the east, linking the Godavari and Krishna it’s no surprise that homes and restaurants include a variety of seafood specialties including fish, crabs and prawns.
