About this deal

It's that textures of that stitches, it kind of makes you feel that you will heal, you will be fine, you will recover, and you will be victorious. I chose a sirloin and managed to cook it just to my liking (medium-rare albeit slightly more on the rare side), which is one of the first times I have managed to do this at home. These dishes will bring warmth to your kitchen when you need a meal or dish to share with your family and friends - from quick-and-easy Baghare Aloo and Shahi Paneer, a vegetarian staple all ages love, to Ammu's Chicken Biriyani the much-requested Darjeeling Express favourite.

Asma Khan’s latest cookery book, Ammu is a delightful collection of childhood recipes that celebrates the power of home cooking and the inextricable link between food and love.An unstoppable force for social change in the food industry and beyond, Asma has been revolutionising the London restaurant scene since 2017 with her world-renowned Indian food, all-female team, and her commitment to training immigrant women. Some made India their home, the Mughals who came in lived for generations in India and ended up marrying women from India and their contribution was huge to the cuisine, Mughali cuisine is a very significant part of Indian food, but today there's a lot of divide and rule and food is used as a weapon to divide people. Asma started a supper club from her home in 2012, and since then she has been revolutionising the UK food scene launching a pop-up restaurant in Soho in 2015 and the acclaimed eatery, Darjeeling Express, in 2017.

Only received today, so not yet tried the recipes but already have identified a few for the weekend, including Ammu’s chicken biryani and Sabit Masoor Dal. Her hard work, her generosity, her sense of ready connection with others, her direct and full-throttle character, which seeks to lift up and nourish those around her, are all immediately apparent when you eat her food at her restaurant, Darjeeling Express, or when you read her words or follow her recipes. He's always worried about eating carbs and the base of our food is the rice, the proteins, that's the kind of most important thing. In India, everyone thinks this is our native food and it doesn't help right now because it becomes very political.Mughlai dishes were always her mother’s speciality so you will find treasures like Safed Murgh Ka Saalan and Sheer Korma along with the North Indian Navratan Korma, while flipping the pages. From the final chapter, Becoming Ammu, Asma Khan delivers on her promise of recipes that are quick to prepare.

Ammu: Indian Home-Cooking to Nourish the Soul’, to be released on Thursday, is a collection of childhood recipes that celebrates the power of home cooking and the inextricable link between food and love. Many, many articles have been written detailing the numerous and varied achievements of Indian cook – she refuses to be referred to as ‘chef’ – Asma Khan, and more still explaining why this woman engenders such a happy reception from everyone she encounters. I would like to talk to him about that, and I think I would love to have had a meal with him, and I would love to have fed him and listened to his stories. But, through lighting, prop selection and canny compositions, Kim Lightbody’s images manage to make every dish look as good as it tastes.I almost always roast cauliflower and it was a welcome surprise to taste such a deeply comforting dish with cauliflower that had briefly boiled, albeit in a most aromatic spiced sauce. This time, with Asma’s recipe at hand, I made a tamarind and onion sauce in which the boiled eggs simmered.
