Pour 100ml/3½fl oz/scant ½ cup boiling water over the tamarind pulp and leave to soak for a further 15 minutes.

Mowgli is an amazing Indian restaurant in Grand Central, Birmingham and an unforgettable dish of theirs is the ‘Monkey Wrap’. Aubergine/eggplant is India’s best-loved vegetable and the reason for this, my Maa and I reckon, is because it is the closest many Indians get to that meat texture. It is brilliant for when you have friends over – kids in particular love it (you can adjust the chilli level).

This is the food that Nisha Katona cooks at home: punchy and delicious Mowgli-style recipes that take you from couch to curry in 30 minutes or less.

Introducing someone to their first chat bomb became something of a cult culinary practice in Liverpool. She is the founder of Mowgli Street Food and shares her passion for simple, honest cookery on the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and BBC Radio 4.

As at Mowgli, the focus is on food that’s big in flavour but also light, healthy and made from accessible ingredients, often just using what’s already in your cupboard or fridge. These recipes convey the truth that real Indian food is healthy, often vegan, and always packed with fresh flavour. When hot, add the red onion and red chilli and fry for 4 minutes or until the onion is soft and translucent. From the Mowgli Chip Butty to the iconic Yogurt Chat Bombs, Mother Butter Chicken to Calcutta Tangled Greens, this is the definitive collection of Mowgli’s signature street food dishes to recreate at home.For a pretty pink colour, try to find a genuine Indian rose syrup (in the Asian aisles of supermarkets or in Indian grocers).
