Indian Street Food Style Eggy Bread
There’s no greater joy than being presented with a piping hot plate of eggy bread (or French toast, whatever you like to call it), wonderfully crispy and golden on the outside with a gorgeously soft centre. Whether you load it with fresh fruit, jams, bacon or syrup – we can all agree it just hits the spot. Check out Atul’s twist with spices, fried onion, tomatoes and chilli, it might just become your new go to.
Kerala Lamb Curry
We reckon this delicately spiced dish with marinated lamb will stop you yearning for your local takeaway. Super quick to rustle up but packed full of flavours, you won’t believe how simple it is. Inspired by a roadside café in Kerala, this is a proper curry.
The ultimate street food snack – a potato salad like no other. Seriously crispy potatoes fried in ghee topped with tamarind, mint yoghurt and pomegranate seeds.
