Cooking Like Mummyji Summary

If you think you know Indian cooking, think again. This book from a fresh, young talent reveals a little-known cuisine with roots both in the Indian sub-continent and in Britain. 'I have often thought it such a shame that the Western world is not let in on the secret of real Indian home cooking, as though it is a sort of long-standing trick, our last remaining jewel,' says Vicky Bhogal in the introduction to Cooking like Mummyji. 'Our home food is much simpler than what you find in Indian restaurants. We use very little spices. The same ingredients are generally used for everything, but, like musical notes, can be combined in many different ways to create beautiful melodies.' Vicky Bhogal is passionate about British Asian food. In over 100 recipes she reveals its secrets. Many of the names of her dishes will be familiar to afficionados of high-street Indian restaurants, but they will find Vicky's versions surprisingly fresher, healthier and more delicious, with simpler, more vivid flavours. Her cooking is also a good deal friendlier and less complicated than the recipes of most Indian cookbooks. Along the way Vicky makes some sharp, fun observations on British Asian culture and we encounter some of her family members and learn their favourite recipe. And since Vicky's family and friends have lived in the UK for two generations now, Indian cooking techniques have been applied to their favourite British ingredients with some surprising results, for example an Indian version of Fried Eggy Bread, Baked Beans with Spring Onion Sabji, Pasta with Yoghurt and Chilli Drizzle.
