The Patels, who run Prasha in the city, were the surprise stars of the popular TV show Ramsay’s Best Restaurant in 2010 and many of the recipes have been developed by Kaushy Patel who learned to cook as a child on her grandmother’s farm in northern India.
Bobby Patel, operations director at Prashad said: “Prashad means blessed food, and Kaushy has a clear belief that her feelings and love are very much part of the food.
“The Prashad team is determined to show that vegetarian cuisine can be interesting, exciting, and innovative and, above all, taste great!
“We are delighted that we are now able to share our favourite recipes and encourage more and more people to enjoy the flavours and tastes.
“Kaushy challenges even the most committed carnivore to tell her, and mean it, that they missed the meat.”
Published by Saltyard Bookson today, the hardback book will include over 100 Indian vegetarian recipes from simple pickles, dips and street-food to sumptuous family feasts.
Prashad is the only restaurant in Bradford with an AA Rosetter and played a key role in the team that secured the title of Curry Capital of the UK for Bradford. The book will be available at all Waterstones stores (£25) across Yorkshire and will be the Book of the Month in October. It will also be available from Amazon and other download retailers as an e-book – buy it here Prashad Cookbook: Indian Vegetarian Cooking
