The Everything Indian Cookbook: 300 Tantalizing Recipes--From Sizzling Tandoori Chicken to Fiery Lamb Vindaloo (Everything: Cooking)
by Monica Bhide
Frustrated by the lack of straightforward Indian cookbooks, Monica became inspired several years ago to develop simplified and healthful versions of her favorite Indian dishes. The result is her highly praised first cookbook, The Spice Is Right: Easy Indian Cooking for Today (Callawind Publications, 2001), a collection of mouth-watering menus tempered with the author's up-to-date touches on classic Indian recipes. Monica guides Indian food lovers on an easy-to-use foray into the flavors, ingredients, techniques, and tips to home-style cooking using over 150 recipes. Indian cuisine constitutes the exotic blend of flavors from the Himalayas in the North to the Eastern Bay of Bengal. Featuring hundreds of recipes, such as Indian-Style Coleslaw, Rice Pudding, and Indian Corn Flatbread, The Everything® Indian Cookbook guides readers through preparing delicious Indian cuisine right in their own homes.
