Being half an East Indian one is often intrigued by ones roots. Growing up one has partaken of meals like duck or beef moile, vindaloo, kujit, bujing and many more. While may of the dishes seem familiar or closest to the goan style of cooking it is not so. Who are the East Indians you may ask and why are they considered a special community and breed. There is evidence that the local inhabitants of Mumbai were converted to Christianity and then slowly dwindled back to their old ways of life till the Portuguese came along and rechristened them.

The cuisine of the community is well documented in this book and with almost 200 recipes in it. Published by Westland now Amazon the book is currently in its 3rd edition.

The Indian kitchen is incomplete without the ‘masala dabba’ or the spice box that comprises a world of flavours, colours and textures. Sometimes, a single spice does the trick, at other times several spices combine to form a robust blend. Here, we explore the ‘Masala Dabba’ and its contents from a not-so-obvious point of view. What would happen, for instance, if milk masala were not added to milk but meat or chilli flakes in desserts? Believe it or not, the answer is: Spectacular food.
Masala Dabba presents a melange of culinary techniques and unique spice blends and mixtures that would guarantee a delightful dining experience. This book will definitely come in handy while you cook up a storm for your dear ones with a dash of freshness and the goodness of zesty spices.
