Asma's Indian Kitchen: Home-cooked food brought to you by Darjeeling Express [9781911595687]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Let Asma Khan feed your soul with this collection of authentic Indian recipes.

Award-winning restaurant Darjeeling Express began life as a dinner party with friends; Indian food lovingly cooked from family recipes that go back generations. In this book, Asma reveals the secret to her success, telling her immigrant's story and how food brought her home.

The recipes pay homage to her royal Mughlai ancestry and follow the route of the Darjeeling Express train from the busy streets of Bengal, through Calcutta, where she grew up, and along the foothills of the Himalayas to Hyderabad.

Platters of dishes boasting texture and intense flavour encourage you to gather for a traditional `dawaat' (feast). Starting with simple midweek Feasts For Two, Asma then reveals the way to quick and easy cooking with less spice for Family Feasts.

There are Feasts For Friends for when you want to show off a little and Celebratory Feasts to feed a crowd. Many of the recipes are vegetarian, there are sweet treats and drinks, too, and all feature alongside lesser-known recipes and stories unique to Asma's family.

This is more than just a collection of delicious and accessible recipes, it is a celebration of heritage, culture, community and quality. This is Asma's Indian Kitchen.

There's no need to book a flight to experience Indian home cooking - Fay Maschler, Evening Standard

Asma is a force of nature: bold, funny, talented, philanthropic and unstoppable - Grace Dent, Grace & Flavour

This is serious Indian cooking - Tom Parker Bowles, Daily Mail


AUTHOR: Asma Khan moved to Cambridge in 1991 with her husband. She comes from a royal background - Rajput on her father's side and Begali on her mother's. After training as a lawyer Asma registered for a food business, which began life as a supper club in her home in Kensington. In 2015, she opened a pop-up in Soho to much acclaim, and Darjeeling Express the restaurant opened its doors in June 2017, perfectly positioned in Kingly Court in central London. Darjeeling Express has been joined by its sister site Calcutta Kitchen in Fulham. Asma was voted `Female Entrepreneur of the Year' at the Asian Restaurant Awards 2018, as well as `Entrepreneur of the Year' at the Asian Women of the Year Awards.
