The chefs of the Patiala royal household have more than 140 recipes for pulao in their repertoire. The Rampur royal family used to serve a minimum of 200 dishes at banquets given for visiting heads of state. The royal kitchen of Mahmudabad has in its collection a recipe for a dessert called Sahnak, which is originally attributed to Empress Nur Jehan. The Sailana royal family had skilled chefs who made puris, which when broken had a bird flying out of each of them. In the book, the royals share anecdotes about their and their ancestors' signature styles of cooking, entertaining, and presentation of food. Dining with the Maharajas showcases the extraordinarily rich culinary traditions of the royal families of Hyderabad, Jammu and Kashmir, Jodhpur, Mahmudabad, Mysore, Patiala, Rampur, Sailana, Tripura, Udaipur and in the process presents the variety and distinctness of royal cuisines.

Much to the delight of food lovers the original royal recipes featured in the book and the accompanying kitchen copy unfold the exotic traditional creations from the royal kitchens.
