A dish from the East Indian community in Allahabad, this fruit cake is made from petha (made from white pumpkin) and soaked fruits and nuts with distinctive flavours of ghee and several spices. If you don’t have access to petha, simply skip it in the recipe, it will still taste as good.

The classic sausage gets an inbuilt Indian spice and flavour hit. In Kolkata, this Anglo-Indian dish is made a few only. With expert hands these sausage makers mix finely chopped onions, spices, salt, green chilli, coriander, mint and celery in the sausage meat before stuffing it into the skin. If you can’t get your hands on this Kolkata special, just follow our recipe for a taste of sheer goodness.
