Episode Info:

This week on Tea & Tattle, I’m joined by the food writer and chef Maunika Gowardhan to discuss Maunika’s wonderful cookbook, Indian Kitchen, and her passion for Indian home cooking.

Growing up in Mumbai, Maunika absorbed the rich variety of her mother’s Indian home-cooking, and when Maunika moved to the UK as a young woman, she started cooking family recipes to ease her cravings for proper Indian meals. Word of Maunika’s fantastic dishes quickly spread, kickstarting her career as a private chef. Over the years, Maunika has become an established authority on Indian cuisine. She is a contributing editor for Vogue India, where she shares the latest stories and tips from the international Indian food scene. Maunika also hosts regular cooking workshops, teaching classes at Jamie’s Cook School in London and River Cottage in Dorset.

Maunika shares her delicious recipes through her hugely popular website, social media channels and recipe app, Maunika’s Indian Recipes, which has remained in the top 10 recommended apps since its launch. Her cookbook, Indian Kitchen, is a real favourite of mine and brings together many of her family favourite recipes, several of which are inspired by the dishes her Grandmother created.

I had a wonderful time chatting to Maunika about how her childhood influenced her love for food, the incredible regional variety in Indian cuisine, the exciting changes that have taken place within the Indian restaurant scene in London over the past decade, and so much more.
