Since opening its first restaurant in Covent Garden in 2010, Dishoom has brought the essence of the old Irani cafes of Bombay to London, offering diners a menu of stylish authentic fare. Following its successful vegan sausage naan roll kit earlier in the year, at-home diners can now indulge in a range of their favourite dishes in the comfort of their own dining rooms. Available for nationwide delivery.
The meal kit
Containing everything you need to create some of Dishoom’s much-loved dishes including Bhel, lamb sheikh kabab, murgh malai, matter paneer, house black daal (yes!), kachumber and tawa rotis. There is even a large bottle of delicious mango lassi and a gulkand mess if you’ve got room for something sweet.
How many does it feed?
Depending on the size of your appetite 2-4 people.
Everything arrived in minimal paper or cardboard recyclable packaging. Extra zero waste bonus points.
Thanks to its vintage fonts and slick styling, Dishoom has created an A4 sheet of cooking instructions worthy of a frame. The sheet covers everything from recycling to allergens and has easy to follow step-by-step instructions for each dish, including a QR code linking to an instructional video with Chef Naved. To top it off there are diagrams and a ruler (to help you measure the rotis).
Brummell prepped all the food and laid out a spread so each person could add as much or as little as they liked to their plates. The fresh and crunchy bhel was not only super easy to create (great news as it’s a favourite in our house), it’s a deliciously mixed-textured treat, and the kachumber was always on hand to cut through the richness of the curries and kababs. Tearing off sections of the soft hot rotis, we scooped up the rich and delicious black daal and creamy matter panner, and wrapped the remaining rotis around the creamy spicy goodness of the grilled murgh malai (one of the most delicious chicken marinades we’ve ever tasted!) and the vigorous spicy flavours of the lamb sheikh kabab. It was all so sumptuous and appealing, we had to wait a couple of hours to create room for the Gulkand Mess. A creamy blend of tart strawberries, whipped cream and meringue pieces, it was the perfect ending to a feast fit for royalty.
Kits are priced at £60, including delivery, and for an extra £20 you can upgrade your mango lassi to a bottle of Frizzante.
The ultimate Bombay-inspired indulgence. Your conversation is likely to be replaced with the satisfied groans of delight that usually escape during an incredible meal. A real treat, perfect for a weekend feast.
