Happy Publication Day!

Indian Kitchen is out today...


It’s finally here! And so many of you have being buying your copies in stores across the UK and Ireland all this week. Lots more of you have ordered your copies online and I can’t wait to see what everyone is cooking from Indian Kitchen.

It took me 10 months to complete this book from start to finish and what a journey it has been! I have on numerous occasions accounted some of it on my website but spent so much time wanting to make sure that the book is a reflection of me through my writing, cooking, the recipes and the overall feel of it.


With over 120 recipes within the cookbook it’s a delicious balance of Indian vegetarian and non vegetarian curries, side dishes, biryanis, breads, desserts, drinks and spice blends. There are family recipes alongside a massive regional selection. All divided up based on what we cook depending on how we feel – Hungry/ Lazy/ Indulgent and to the ultimate Celebratory. Cooking that ultimately evokes emotions and connects us.

I have the fantastic team at Hodder and Stoughton to thank for this beautifully done book and of course this amazing crew below. You all know who you are and on every page of the book you have create something very special that will be used in homes across the country. That in itself is exciting and rewarding in equal measure!


So many of you have been immensely excited and ordered copies of the book. I hope everyone enjoys it and thank you all for your amazing messages, emails and tweets. I don’t always reply to them all very promptly but massively grateful for such a brilliant response to this, my debut cookbook. There have been some early reviews and features for the book already so make sure to check the press pages of the site for it.

Indian Kitchen is available to order on Amazon UK and is out now (in Hardback and Kindle) online and in all book stores across the UK and Ireland. For those overseas it is also available to order on Amazon.com. And for all my friends in India it is available to order on Flipkart and in book stores across cities.

I will be also doing book signings in cities across UK, India and beyond excited to meet everyone! I also have an exciting competition coming up next week with some amazing gifts to give away including a signed copy of my book!

Make sure to subscribe to my website and check out the signing dates when they are announced. I would love to meet you all and of course sign copies of the book. Thank you all for your kind words and support. Cook, share and devour into a feast from Indian Kitchen. M x
