Biting Biting features recipes for fast, easy, 100% vegetarian and vegan snacks that can be knocked up at speed using leftovers and store-cupboard ingredients.

Enter a world of Gujarati-style snacking, where nothing is wasted and every recipe can turn into a whole range of snacks. So a simple Potato Shaak (or curry) can be re-purposed as a samosa, or served up on toast with an egg, or stuffed into a parotha or flatbread. Even if you've nothing in the cupboard but a tin of baked beans, you can make Baked Bean Curry, or why not try revolutionising your lunch with Cumin-spiced Cheese on Toast or the Cheese & Chevro (or Bombay Mix) Sandwich?

Discover more classic 'bitings' such as Reveya (Peanut Stuffed Aubergine) and Patta Ganthiya (gram flour crispbreads) alongside her uncle's legendary BBQ Green Bananas, a full chapter of bhajiya (pakora) and some suggestions for delicious Sweet Biting. With fresh chutneys you can make in moments in a blender and advice on what to keep in your fridge to provide optimum ingredients for Biting, you will never be stuck for a snack again.

A joyful cookbook, grounded in famly life, Biting Biting is crammed with appetising recipes - and I want to cook them all! Here are recipes for enlivening treats such as spiced puff pastry palmiers, crispy potato fritters and jaggery fudge with sesame, and Urvashi's voice - humorous, warm, practical - leaps off the page, making her a great guide to the joys of snacking Gujurati-style'--Jenny Linford
