More about buying ebooks from us

Award-winning restaurant Darjeeling Express began life as a dinner party with friends; Indian food lovingly cooked from family recipes that go back generations. In this book, Asma reveals the secret to her success, telling her immigrant’s story and how food brought her home. The recipes pay homage  to her royal Mughlai ancestry and follow the route of the Darjeeling Express train from the busy streets of Bengal, through Calcutta, where she grew up, and along the foothills of the Himalayas to Hyderabad.  This is more than just a collection of delicious and accessible recipes, it is a celebration of heritage, culture, community and quality.

“There’s no need to book a flight to experience Indian home cooking” – Fay Maschler, Evening Standard
“Asma is a force of nature: bold, funny, talented, philanthropic and unstoppable” – Grace Dent, Grace & Flavour
