'Eddie's passion for good food and great flavours is evident in every dish and doesn't disappoint'
Gordon Ramsay, OBE

a collection of everyday European meals brought to life with a blend of Indian spices

Best known for his maximum impact, minimal effort meals, Eddie Scott won the competition and adoration of the public with his heartfelt approach to food. In MISARANA, which translates as fusion in Punjabi, he draws upon his unique memories and heritage (cooking amazing homemade meals with his grandparents, eating in bustling French bistros on family holidays, visiting the vibrant street food stalls in India and travelling the world as a Marine Pilot) to create a collection of inspirational, yet relatable dishes.

From mid-week meals to slow Sundays, MISARANA is full of recipes for all kinds of budgets and schedules, brought to life with vibrancy, panache and spice (we’re talking Delhi street-style bread omelette, Keralan mussels, Burnt aubergine cakes with lime pickle and Chicken Pista Walla pie). 

You’ll learn to view Indian flavors as a vital foundation of home cooking, stimulating your senses and expanding your repertoire with endless variations of exciting, everyday food.

Recipes include:

  • Tandoori butter trout with ginger and lime greens
  • Goan vindaloo pulled pork buns with apple fennel slaw
  • Punjabi spinach and goats cheese tart
  • Puducherry bouillabaisse
  • Kolkata tacos
  • Lamb rogan chops
  • New Delhi baked cheesecake
  • Spiced chai chocolate mousse with poached prunes

What an absolute fabulous book. My passion is curry and cake. Eddie takes you on a journey of his holiday travels with such fabulous dishes all different to what I have seen before and I have lots of curry and cake books. I can't wait to cook these dishes. The breakfasts look amazing and so do the desserts and the mains. I will buy this book when it is published. Love it.

Indian food has enjoyed a huge jump in popularity during the last few years. Most agree it is delicious, but some cooks are hesitant to make it at home thinking it is too difficult to make. Eddie Scott, MasterChefUK champion and amazing cook, has found ways to add an Indian nuance to everyday dishes in his excellent cookbook, Misarana: Classic dishes reimagined with the flavours of India.

The recipes are unique and appealing. There are recipes such as Laal Maas Spaghetti & Meatballs, Shahi Sheermal Buns, Butter Garlic Crab Linguine, Amritsari Fish with Mushy Peas & Tartare Sauce, Grandma Tandoori Pizza, and Kolkata Tacos – all classic dishes with Indian undertones. Most readers will need to make a trip to a good Indian grocery before making these yummy dishes, but it will be worth it.

The recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions. There are also author’s notes at the beginning of each recipe full of vignettes, memories, and tips for successful recipes. Most of the recipes are easy enough for beginning cooks, and those with a little more experience will find them easy.

Most of the dishes include beautiful, professional photographs of the mouthwatering dishes. This makes it difficult to decide what to make next for dinner. There are enough dishes to keep cooks busy for months trying the recipes in their queue.

All told, Eddie Scott has taken a good idea and made it a reality. This is an excellent cookbook for anyone’s cookbook shelf.
