"Born and brought up in Mumbai, I am a food writer and private chef living in the UK. My cooking reflects how fabulous regional Indian food can be! I cook at dining events for clients who want to discover a contemporary approach to Indian food making it much more accessible. I write about Indian food and share my family recipes on my website www.maunikagowardhan.co.uk.
I am so grateful to have an avid following worldwide on the site which has given me a platform to showcase how brilliant cooking techniques, flavours and spice blends in India make every cuisine so unique and exciting.
I also write about the diversity of the cuisine and recipes for magazines, newspapers and have a column in Vogue India where I share what I eat at restaurants, my travels and also the latest on the global Indian food scene.
I have been fortunate to cook with some of my food heroes over the last few years including Heston Blumenthal and Jamie Oliver for his online cookery channel Jamie's Food Tube. For more information, cookery events and news check out my Twitter page @cookinacurry or on Facebook www.facebook.com/maunikagowardhan. Indian Kitchen is my debut cook book.
I love Maunika's cooking. Her food is a joy - she makes incredible Indian food really achievable at home. A fantastic Indian cookbook. (JAMIE OLIVER)
Reading Maunika's book feels as though you're actually sitting in an Indian family kitchen, sharing stories and recipes. I've been inspired by her to make my own paneer and to play with pickled watermelon rind. Delightful! (YOTAM OTTOLENGHI)
Maunika's recipes are delight: elegant, delicious, well though out and carefully explained.They bring warmth and flavour to my table, are simple enough for supper and sophisticated enough for the most special dinner. In short it is a book as charming and beautiful as Maunika herself (THANE PRINCE)
"Authentic but achievable Indian recipes" (SUNDAY TIMES)
Maunika's book is divided into chapters named Hungry, Lazy, Indulgent and Celebratory; the first packed with lipsmacking quick recipes and masses of other familiar and intriguing dishes (all clearly very true to Maunika's Mumbai upbringing). Later on in the book, rich curries and opulent veggie dishes too, for the hordes. I'll definitely be using this one regularly (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)
"The first book from Indian chef Maunika Gowardhan is a stunner!

"Teeming with delicious Indian recipes inspired by traditional family meals. With everything from cakes and curries to chutneys and a rather good five-minute naan recipe, you'll be hiding it from light-fingered friends" (STYLIST)
"Indian Kitchen is packed full of delicious and inspiring recipes which have been split into four groups depending on your mood... as well as bold and unique curries that you'll never have seen on your local takeaway menu, why not try something totally different, like mango and cardamom Barfi" (HEAT MAGAZINE)
