Do you have cookbook fatigue because you cannot find one that helps you from beginning to end You need cookbooks that take the guess work OUT!
As a third generation cook and passionate advocate for the Indian cuisine, I like to keep things simple, yet find ways to update traditional Indian recipes for the modern kitchen - so that we can create unique, healthy, delicious and well balanced meals.
I DO NOT believe that the entirety of the Indian cuisine should be represented by numbered selections on back-lit signs or in laminated menus. Instead, my approach to cooking Indian food provides a window into the rich diversity, adaptability and accessibility of authentic Indian food.
Each book walks you through an entire meal, so you dont have to guess. Begin your collection with these one-of-a-kind gems. Find them here, via one of these e-reader outlets.
