Cookery Book

The Dishoom Cookery Book and highly subjective guide to Bombay with map.

At long last, we’re delighted to say that we’ve written the Dishoom cookery book, with over 100 recipes for the Bombay comfort food and drink that we love.

Through the course of this eccentric and charming book you will be taken on a day-long tour of south Bombay, peppered with much eating and drinking. Starting at breakfast, through to lunch, dinner and nightcaps, we share recipes for beloved dishes such as Masala Chai, the Bacon Naan Roll, Black Daal, Okra Fries, Jackfruit Biryani, and Lamb Raan, along with delicious coolers and cocktails.

As you learn to cook the Dishoom menu, you’ll also discover the simple joy of early chai and omelette at Kyani and Co., of dawdling in Horniman Circle on a lazy morning, of eating your fill on Mohammed Ali Road, of strolling on the sands at Chowpatty at sunset or taking the air at Nariman Point at night.

We hope that this beautiful cookery book will transport you to our most treasured corners of Bombay. Read it, and you will find yourself replete with recipes and stories to share with all who come to your table.

It’s called “Dishoom: From Bombay with Love,” and it’s available from all Dishooms from 5th September. Pop in to any café and ask a kindly server for a copy, and we’ll also gift you a lovely turquoise tote bag to take it home in.

It’s also on sale in good bookshops including Waterstones, Daunt Books, Foyles, and suchlike. Or simply order a copy online.
