About this deal

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and believe it is accurate, it is not a substitute for your reading the product packaging and label prior to use. There's a bit of a task making the spice powders but once they're made you can jar them up and get quite a few meals out of them. It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance.

This is one of the first Sri Lankan dishes that blew my mind and made me fall in love with the cuisine. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Seven years, three restaurants and countless trips to Sri Lanka later, we couldn’t be more excited to finally announce OUR DEBUT COOKBOOK is finally here! Love it, love it, want to cook everything, so I want to spend a week in the kitchen with Karan cooking! A beautifully crafted collection of heartfelt, wonderful recipesfrom one of the most exciting chefs and restaurants of the past few years.It’s an easy, well-balanced one-tray supper but equally impressive when served with some sides as an alternative Sunday roast. Amidst a plethora of extremely coveted recipes and absolutely stunning photographs lies the story of a very beautiful journey, which makes this cookbook a fantastic read as well. Abundant photography presents not only the finished dishes but images of cooks, market vendors, and farmers. From spicy devilled dishes to Crab Kari (curry), crunchy deep-fried Mutton Rolls, Dosas and Sambols, Kalupol Chicken and satisfyingly rich Kothu Roti, Karan Gokani explores the classics as well as new recipes developed at Hoppers restaurants. Maybe more pictures of the food would be beneficial for the end products but there were a lot of pictures of the locals which was great and meaningful.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. This collection of Sri Lankan and South Indian recipes comes from a group of three London restaurants named for one of the region’s most distinctive dishes: a bowl-shaped pancake made from fermented rice and coconut batter. To me it’s much more than a cookbook, it’s the story of Hoppers told through imagery, recipes and personal memories. This dish of aromatic rice steamed over a rich curry is hugely popular in South Asia, with each region doing it slightly differently – be it the addition of potatoes, the variety of rice used, the spices that go into it or even the vessel it’s cooked in. Very rarely you see a cookbook that enthralls you and wanting to try the delicious recipes and of course to run to the nearest Hoppers Restaurant.We’re sharing a few of our favourite summer recipes from Hoppers: The Cookbook that Karan’s been demo’ing at festivals around the island so you can enjoy a true Hoppers feast for yourself at home!
