A Spicy Paneer Cheese Toastie with Mango Chutney, some Chickpea Dokla (bite-sized snacks tempered with toasted coconut and mustard seeds), or perhaps some Carrot and Pistachi Halwa, a sweet and sticky afternoon pick-me-up, washed down with NimboboPani (a sweet and salty refreshing lime soda); the recipes in Bombay Lunchbox have exotic names with flavours to match. Renowned for her imaginative yet accessible recipes, Carolyn Caldicott combines anecdotes and recipes from Anglo-Indian cookery with the culture of the 'Tiffin' lunchbox, cooked at home and delivered to the workplace in characteristic stainless steel tiered tins. Carolyn's collection of sweet and savoury vegetarian recipes for lunch, afternoon tea or any snack eaten between breakfast and dinner, will appeal to anyone who loves India and Indian food. Bombay Lunchbox is illustrated with modern photographs by Chris Caldicott and vintage imagery, bringing together the spirit of the Raj with the brightly coloured buzz of modern India's culture, religion and society.
