The market will be part of The Alchemy Festival, a mixture of performances, workshops and exhibitions, celebrating the relationship between the UK and the Indian subcontinent.
The market will run for 12 days and feature 30 traders cooking dishes from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. Traders including Anna Mae's, What the Dickens and Blue Top ice cream will all be adding an Asian twist to their signature dishes.
Macaroni cheese experts Anna Mae's will be serving Murgh Mac — mac with black pepper chicken fry, garlic raita and wild mustard leaves, and The Macwari Naan (grilled mac n cheese naan) while What the Dickens will serve the original kedgeree that India gave to the British. Ice cream maestro Blu Top are dishing out Assam tea cookie and cardamom kheer, and toasted almond cookie and pandan leaf ice cream sandwiches.
