Savour Mumbai – recipes by Vikas Khanna
A celebration of Mumbai’s food with three recipes from the book by the Michelin Star winning Chef, ‘Khubani ka
Shahi Tukda’, ‘Chicken Caferal’ and ‘Kacche Kele ki Asharfi’.
A natural flare with crowd and with a gift of gab, this handsome Michelin star winning Chef did not fail to win a thousand hearts during the Delhi launch of his book ‘Savour Mumbai’ at Imperial hotel yesterday. An event organised by the Imperial’s culinary club had the food enthusiasts absolutely awestruck by the humbling smile and down to earth attitude of super Chef Vikas Khanna, who needs no introduction I am sure. In the star chef’s words ‘It’s not just about cooking or the food’, ‘It’s much more beyond that science’, of course what he meant was ‘unmatched love and endless memories that counts’, and I couldn’t agree more for that is exactly what cooking in India is about. The little anecdotes from his ‘biji’s’ kitchen when she would ward them away as they tried to steal dry fruits as children, or even how the use of dry fruits was limited to occasions when super-special guests arrived, were not just amusing but they also took many of us in the audience a little back down our own memory lanes.
