For Chef Dayashankar Sharma, food has always been about respecting traditions and recreating them with a contemporary touch. He opened his Indian fine-dining restaurant Heritage Dulwich during the pandemic and emerged successful. All in a day’s work for the four-time Michelin Plate winner.

In its initial days, it was Heritage Home Dining, available at your doorstep. Created to put a contemporary spin on traditionally grounded recipes, it brought a touch of nostalgia and innovation. For most, it was also an opportunity to experiment with ingredients and foods from lesser-known Indian regions and communities.

Today, the restaurant stands strong as a reflection of Chef Sharma’s three decades’ worth of experience. It’s worth noting that a good chunk of the same was in Tamarind and Zaika – two Michelin-starred Indian kitchens.

Nine months since their launch, the chef has also recently launched a new delivery service and home dining experience. Entitled Jhakaas, Chef Dayashankar Sharma brings his Michelin-starred experience to the kitchen and gives a contemporary twist to some popular Indian classics.

Given his forte, it’s unsurprising that he dabbles in Pakistani cuisine with this Murgh Chapli Kebab. It’s traditionally a Pashtun-style minced kebab, usually uses ground beef, mutton, or chicken with various spices. Shaped like a burger patty, the chapli kabab originally comes from the northern areas of Pakistan, particularly Peshawar, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

Having added his signature touch to the plate and elevated the juicy kebab, here’s Chef Dayashankar’s recipe for you to try!
