Street food specialists Mowgli arrived in the Corn Exchange after a hugely successful first year in Liverpool. Star dishes include the Hindu speciality, tea steeped chickpeas (£4.95), which had been simmered in a rich Darjeeling and spiced tomato and spinach sauce; green ginger and rhubarb dahl (£4.50) and the classic cheese dish; and Mowgli paneer (£5.50), delicately simmered with peas and fresh spinach. A good introduction is the ‘taster thali’, offering a variety of dishes plus rice. And don’t miss the yoghurt chat bombs – crisp bread puffs filled with chickpeas, spiced yoghurt, tamarind, coriander and mint that explode in your mouth. Mowgli is the brainchild of barrister turned YouTube cookery guru Nisha Katona, who draws on the Calcutta roots of her family. Its lunchtime food offer follows Hindu tradition by being onion and garlic free with plenty of vegan options. Oh, and in a cute take on Indian office food, you can carry out a tiffin box
