Without a doubt, one of the things we’ve missed most since lockdown began in March – besides hugging our loved ones – is feasting on delicious food at restaurants. And one of the restaurants that’s got to be high on any Londoner’s list is Indian eatery Dishoom. But no more. On 18 June, Dishoom is launching their first at-home cookery kit, featuring their hugely popular brunch dish: bacon naan rolls.
The kit costs £16 and comes with enough ingredients to create two bacon naan rolls at home, plus an extra dough ball in case you make a mess on your first naan attempt. In addition to the dough balls, every at-home pack contains smoked streaky bacon from Ramsay of Carluke (which is matured in the traditional Ayrshire way and smoked over applewood and beechwood chips), Dishoom’s signature tomato-chilli jam, fresh coriander, and cream cheese. For the full experience, there’ll also be ingredients to brew masala chai (you’ll just need your own milk and sugar to brew).
In addition to providing written instructions that explain exactly how to re-create Dishoom’s bacon naan roll at home, there’s also a step-by-step video instructional on the Dishoom Covent Garden YouTube channel, which you can watch ahead. Initially, the kits will be available to anyone who lives locally to the King’s Cross, Kensington, and Shoreditch cafés that will be released for same-day delivery at 3 p.m. every afternoon through the Dishoom website.
