Nisha’s Mowgli Empire
Liverpudlian barrister, chef and entrepreneur, Nisha Katona, opened the first Mowgli Street Food restaurant in Liverpool in 2014, after realising that she was missing the informal, honest, smash-and-grab, big-flavoured concept of true Indian food in the UK. Her first humble restaurant business has snowballed into the growing empire of Mowgli restaurants opening and operating up and down the UK, beloved for their fresh and tasty Indian home cooking (and famous Chip Butties). A familiar face on Lorraine, This Morning and Sunday Brunch, Nisha has been sharing her love of authentic Indian family cooking and zingy, spiced dishes across the UK and won herself a reputation as a dedicated curry evangelist. Breaking down the barriers between the home cook and delicious Indian cuisine, Mowgli Street Food the cookbook is a guide for flavour-lovers of any experience and any background.
Dishes from the Mowgli Restaurants
The signature marinade Angry Bird is renowned as being the magic ingredient for Mowgli’s tender, tasty and slightly spicy chicken drumsticks.
Known in India as dahi puri, these are the ultimate flavour grenade and our biggest seller by far at Mowgli. They have their own Twitter following and fan club!
A spin on a simple chip butty, this spice-filled and flavour rich roti-wrapped dish is a firm favourite with Mowgli customers.
Immerse Yourself in the Mowgli Way of Life
Mowgli is based on the way that Indians eat at home and on their streets: fresh, zingy, hectic, colourful flavours. But calling it ‘street food’ loses some of itself in translation and suggests something far less than it is. Street food in the whole of the East is a far cry from the ubiquitous strap line we overuse in the West. Indian eating when not done at home is most often practised outside, on the street, on the move, chatting to people around you. Bhajis of courgette flowers, densely battered and beautifully spiced; cones of roasted chickpeas, devoured by everyone from businessmen to children dawdling on their way home from school; delicately aromatic curries served in banana leaf bowls. All of these are recreated in the pages of this book.
