3 Indian summer recipes from Mira Manek

3 Indian summer recipes from Mira Manek

I've had a girl-crush on British Indian food writer, Mira Manek for a while. Where Dilli Grey is all about bringing a modern aesthetic to traditional Indian design - Mira is doing the same, but for Indian cuisine - creating light, healthy recipes that use spices creatively - not just in curries! - to infuse the fragrance of India from breakfast all the way through to supper.

Her first book, Saffron Soul is out now - I love it; it's a modern, healthy update of her mother and grandmother's authentic vegetarian Gujarati recipes - perfect for summer. She's also a complete babe!

Mira has kindly let me share three of my favourite recipes with you - an Indian take on a classic Mexican taco (perfect finger food for a crowd), a gorgeously fragrant lazy weekend brunch and my go-to snack when I'm racing about town at our pop-ups, the moreish cacao and cardamom protein balls - enjoy!
