Reza Mahammad's writing style is thankfully as flamboyant as his television presenting and so expect an entertaining as well as a delicious read! The recipes in this delightful book are a mixture of dishes from the now-closed London restaurant, The Star of India (that he took over from his father), and also inspired from filming all over India for British TV.
