Texture, colour, flavour – the essence of India itself, intertwine and explode in this stunning cookbook. Celebrating the patent versatility and abundance of Indian cuisine, India Local focuses on India’s street foods and chaats. It tells the story of a nation through its street offerings, from the bustling lanes of old Delhi and the alleyways of Lucknow to the swarming bylanes of Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The author takes you on a cross-country culinary adventure through the vibrant gullies of Surat to the hilly thoroughfares of Darjeeling, exploring along the way the kitchens-on-wheels from Jaipur to Gangtok all the way down to the hectic curbsides of Chennai.

Ved’s glamorous yet approachable recipes meet Karam Puri’s street-style photography, and together they guide you through the best chaats and street food in India. Pick from usuals like pani puri and vada pav, to special snacks by India’s most innovative minds: hello, tawa paneer chaat and jinni dosa.

The book has recipes generously shared by Ved’s chef friends and those promise to be as creative as they are satisfying. Besides, there are housemade specialities like the inviting papdi ‘lasagne’, barley-couscous tikki with raw mango cream, 8-layers dhokla chaat and more. Want to eat like a local? This book is for you.
