These include game dishes from places like Coorg in Karnataka, seafood specialities from the coastal belt of Goa, Kerala and Malwan, and more traditional Moghulai, Awadhi, Rajasthani and Punjabi dishes.
“I’ve merged the exquisite flavours of Asia with the timeless techniques of Indian cuisine to create a unique global contemporary style,” said Awanish Roy.
