For years, acclaimed cooking teacher Manju Saigal had been trying to get a cookbook off the ground. Having taught Indian cookery in Kuala Lumpur since 2000, Manju’s bounty of recipes had been growing with every passing year.

“Many years back, I did start working on a book with one of my students. It was meant to be a teaching tool; not a cookbook. Along with that, there were stories of my childhood because to me, I always felt like I wanted to make not just a record of recipes but also the people who have made me what I am,” says Manju.
