The third cookbook from Lancastrian barrister turned author and restaurateur homes in on dishes that, says Katona, are “all about the food that Indians actually eat,” be that at home in the UK or from street-vendors’ stalls in Indian cities. Some dishes, such as Mowgli Chip Butty, are unashamedly Anglo-Indian while others, such as Bhel Puri, will transport you straight to the city streets of the Subcontinent.

Discover how to recreate the iconic Angry Bird, the signature flavours of the House Lamb Curry, and of course, the secrets of the taste explosion that are Chat Bombs. Try tempting snacks like the Fenugreek Kissed Fries, spice up your dinner with a whole host of delicious dahls, and indulge in desserts, drinks and cocktails from a Cardamom Custard Tart to a Sweet Delhi Diazepam. From showstopping slaws to the ultimate Aloo Ghobi, Mother Butter Chicken to Calcutta Tangled Greens, each dish truly captures the smash-and-grab zing of Indian food.
