O n a personal note, I would like to tell you a bit about my background and why I have learned to love being on the go and around the world as often as possible.
My mom is a travel agent and my dad an avid pack-packer – I think my genes alone prepped me for experiencing wanderlust at an early stage and it was only a matter of time for me to move abroad.
And that happened eventually when I was 18 – moving to England for university, where I spent wonderful years in Cambridge.
And with my passion for everything English, many visits to Indian restaurants in London fuelled my cravings for authentic Indian food around the globe. But the very best I have ever eaten was at Tayyabs in Whitechapel – an amazing little eatery that should be on the bucket list of every London visitor.
What I enjoyed at Tayyabs the most was the curried rice – so the following recipe is Tayyabs inspired – a bit more low-key, low-carb but 100% as delicious.
