Earlier this month, Dishoom announced it had reopened for delivery only.
The move means people can (finally) get their hands on a number of the restaurant’s signature dishes, including the vada pau, chilli chicken, keema pau, biryanis, chicken ruby, mattar paneer and the house black daal.
But foodies have noticed the revised delivery menu is missing one standout dish – bacon naan.
The reason the popular item is absent from the reduced menu is due to the fact that the dish doesn’t travel well.
Thankfully, Dishoom has come up with a brilliant way around the problem – by creating its own DIY bacon naan kits for people to make at home.
From tomorrow, Thursday 18 June, people will be able to order a £16 kit which contains ingredients for two bacon naans.
Each pack will feature smoked streaky bacon from Ramsay of Carluke, three naan dough balls (with an additional one thrown in for ‘experimentation’), Dishoom’s tomato-chilli jam, fresh coriander and cream cheese.
There will also be some loose-leaf Darjeeling tea and chai spices for a cup of Masala Chai to go with it.
A handy instruction manual will be provided in the kit – but there’s also a video for first-time chefs on YouTube.
The DIY kits will be available to those who live near the King’s Cross, Kensington and Shoreditch restaurants. Orders can be made via the Dishoom website and a limited number will be released for same-day delivery at 3pm.
Those looking for more culinary treats can attend the The Great Feast of London on the first weekend of July – a virtual festival which will see some of capital’s top restaurants deliver food to homes, parks and gardens.
Patty & Bun, Dumpling Shack, Kricket and Eggslut are just a few names on the festival line-up.
