Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Carrot salad

    • joneshayley on August 17, 2021

      A refreshing and new way for a carrot side. Zingy and fresh, this brings out the best in the humble carrot and served alongside a spicy main is the perfect contrast.

  • House lamb curry

    • joneshayley on August 18, 2021

      Beautiful rich curry. Fragrantly spicy and sweet.

    • Cochise on December 13, 2021

      Gorgeous curry with a nice balance of spice, sweet and salt. Will definitely repeat.

  • Temple dahl

    • joneshayley on August 17, 2021

      As described this is pure and healthy, simple but deep flavours. We loved this as an accompaniment and will make it again.

  • Angry roast chicken

    • joneshayley on August 17, 2021

      Brilliant - juicy and completely imbued with flavour. So delicious and fragrant. One of my favourite roast chickens.

    • mjes on September 08, 2021

      I concur that this is a superb roast chicken - the yogurt keeps it very moist, the eight or so spices give it lots of flavor without overpowering the chicken.

  • Fenugreek kissed fries

    • joneshayley on August 17, 2021

      Gorgeous “chips” lovely with toppings and alongside the angry chicken. A hint of exotic flavours but not at all overpowering.

  • House chicken curry

    • montecristo99 on December 11, 2020

      Excellent. This was easy to prep, and the chicken came out wonderfully tender.

  • Mowgli chip butty

    • MilduraSO on December 08, 2021

      This was really really delicious. I could only find a recipe for the chip butty online but not the two chutneys so I had to make do. I used a very spicy garlic chilli chutney instead of the mowgli chutney on the roti and as a dip on the plate. I skipped the green chilli chutney altogether. It didn’t taste like anything was missing.

Publishers Text

This is real Indian food; the bright, fresh, light, herb- and spice-lifted food that Indians eat in their own homes. Extremely healthy, often vegan, and packed with fresh flavour, it's not your parents' Indian food.

In 2014, barrister Nisha Katona had a nagging obsession to build a restaurant serving the kind of food Indians eat at home and on the street. The first Mowgli restaurant opened in Liverpool in late 2014, blowing away the critics forming legions of fans.

The simple dishes of a Mowgli menu are a million miles away from the curry stereotype. These dishes convey the truth that real Indian food is extremely healthy, often vegan, and always packed with fresh flavour. She gave up her 20-year career as a full-time barrister to build Mowgli Liverpool and opened Manchester Mowgli less than a year later. Nisha, a dedicated curry evangelist, has fond hopes for Mowgli's growth and she still hand trains each new Mowgli chef.

From the Mowgli Chip Butty to the iconic Yoghurt Chat Bombs, Mother Butter Chicken to Calcutta Tangled Greens, this is the definitive collection of over 100 of Mowgli's signature street food dishes to recreate at home.
