What Is dishooms?
If you ever get the chance to visit London, I highly recommend checking out Dishoom which is more than just an Indian restaurant.
In fact, they have several Bombay-style cafes located in London and the UK.
What makes them special is that they are different from the traditional curry houses because their style, menu, and interior design are authentic and unique.
I have to be real here, from my experience in the UK, it is hard to find an Indian restaurant that will blow you away, unless you do your research online.
In central London, there are mostly fantastic Indian restaurants and you will be good after five-minute research on TripAdvisor.
Indian food is so diverse and huge that you can easily create a unique menu that brings us onto Dishoom.
Dishoom is on another level and they have nailed the authenticity factor, and as a result, they often get rave reviews.
The only problem is getting a table; you need to book in advance or wait a while for a table.
Their menu is somewhat in-between traditional and cutting edge.
For example, you can order a black dal or pav bhaji which are respectively familiar.
However, you can also order a chicken berry britannia or bacon naan roll (see below).
Their bacon naan is only available on their breakfast menu which is served from 8am to 11.45 am on weekdays and from 9am to 11.45 am on weekends.
Admittedly, it is my favourite meal on their menu, and that speaks volumes when they also serve lamb chops.
How to make Dishoom Bacon Naan Roll at home
Their bacon naan tastes amazing.
Part of that is because their ingredients is sourced from Ramsay of Carluke; they sell premium and award-winning bacon.
It is also because of the combination of fresh naan bread, crispy bacon, and tomato chili chutney which got me thinking.
What if I try this at home?
This was made naan breads the night before for another recipe and used the spare for this recipe.
I have included the recipe for the naan bread in this post or you could use strore bought naans.
I cooked smoked bacon and used store-bought tomato chilli chutney. Oh, and I also added an egg. It was the best breakfast in a while. If only I made more!Print

DIY Naan Bread
(to make the dough)
- Mix (in a large bowl or stand mixer) the flour, instant dry yeast, salt and sugar.
- Add warm water to the bowl, and add oil to your finger tips, and start kneading the dough until it’s smooth and soft.
- Add a dash of oil to the dough and sides of the bowl. Cover and let it stand for 3-4 hours. You will see it rise by then.
- Continue to knead the dough again and until smooth, you can make around 6-8 balls.
(to cook the naan bread)
- Preheat the oven for at least 20-30 minutes for the best results, on 210 C / 410 F. In the meantime, use a rolling pin to roll the dough ball into a flat base.
- Before you place these in the oven, add a splash of water on the top side of the naan, and place that side down in the oven tray or cast iron pan.
- This should only take 3-4 minutes so keep a eye close eye and remove accordingly.
Note – instead of the oven, you can also use the hob by following the same instructions. Allow your pan to preheat for a few minutes however, and it should literally take 2-3 minutes.
