      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Outstandingly Insightful

    Indias Maharani’s and Maharaja's have intrigued us for generations and have contributed to making ours a magical & mystical land with their their palaces, pomp & pageantry. The royal kitchens have always held a sense of rich, secret recipes which come alive in this fabulous book with its stunning photography. What a wonderful book to own and to gift.

    Photos are amazing!

    The recipes are of course excellent and really make you feel like a king, but the photos have truly captured the essence of royalty. Its like you are in the palaces themselves. And even the food is photographed much better than most cookbooks, I think this is an excellent Diwali, Xmas or even birthday present. Well done!

    Dining with the Maharaja's

    Its an incredibly intimate insight into the heart of the palaces and the stomachs of the Maharaja's. Its a rare invitation to actually see where and how they live and its great to see that there is still a great tradition alive of inter generation culinary knowledge transfer! Good recipes and of course beautifully shot,
