This is the food of my community, Shia Ismaili Muslims from East Africa. It is delicate and fragrant and alas passing away as younger generations are too busy to spend that much time and love making dishes that connect us to our past.
Food writer and author
I love Madhur Jaffrey, but this is the book that taught me to make a proper masala. Rather than the usual refined restaurant-style Indian food the recipes showcase Gujarati home cooking at its hearty best.
