Born and brought up in Kolkata, in a high-profile political family, I was despatched to England for my undergraduate degree by my family, with the recipe for one chicken curry and one dal. I didn’t even know how to boil an egg when I arrived at university. After my Master’s degree, I started trying to replicate the gorgeous and wholesome food I grew up on in my very own, and thoroughly modern, Indian kitchen in London.
