An award-winning cookbook celebrating the author's Indian heritage with simple, healthy recipes for all occasions—in a beautifully illustrated new edition. Winner of the Jeremy Round Award for Best First Book and shortlisted for Best Book at the Glenfiddich Awards, this fully revised and redesigned edition of Cooking with Mummyji features newly commissioned photography and more than 100 scintillating, simple, healthy recipes that celebrate Vicky Bhogal's Indian roots. These exciting recipes come from Bhogal's own family and friends: traditional Indian cooking using accessible ingredients. As Vicky says, "Our home food is much simpler than the food you find in Indian restaurants. We use very few spices. The same ingredients are generally used for everything but, like musical notes, can be combined in many different ways to create beautiful melodies." A treasure of culinary delights, this is "an enchanting book, suffused with charm, wit and the kind of fresh, light recipes that can dazzle a dinner party or make a perfect supper for one" (Red Magazine). "Written with openness and delight in its subject . . . intelligent and fascinating." —The Guardian "A tribute to the Sikh community living in Britain, Vicky Bhogal's book brings favourite family dishes to the table in much the same way as they would be in rural Punjab." —Time Out London
