Manish Mehrotra is globally recognised as one of the best chefs in India. With his culinary skills, he has succeeded in redefining Indian cuisine giving it a modern touch and thus putting it on the gourmet world map. His restaurant in Delhi is called “Indian Accent”, with branches in New York and London. From the traditional national dish Chaat, Manish Mehrotra created the signature dish “Potato Sphere Chaat, White Peas Ragda”, and uses it to outline the philosophy of his cuisine: “Chaat is one of the most-loved street foods of India. Every Indian has a favourite, feeling the best chaat comes from his city.

A common request is for the potato patty to be crisp. At Indian Accent, we have replaced the potato patty with a crisp potato sphere, topped with yogurt and spicy chutneys, to make a delectable starter.” While Manish Mehrotra is internationally celebrated, and his list of distinctions steadily grows, for him, aromas and taste are the true heroes: “Indian Accent showcases inventive Indian cuisine by complementing the flavours and traditions of India with global ingredients and techniques.
