*From the Fortnum & Mason Cookery Writer of the Year 2018*
The top ten bestselling Indian cookbook that will change the way you cook, eat, and think about Indian food, forever.
Real Indian food is fresh, simple and packed with flavour and in MADE IN INDIA, Meera Sodha introduces Britain to the food she grew up eating here every day. Unlike the stuff you get at your local curry house, her food is fresh, vibrant and surprisingly quick and easy to make.
In this collection, Meera serves up a feast of over 130 delicious recipes collected from three generations of her family: there's everything from hot chappatis to street food (chilli paneer and beetroot and feta samosas), fragrant curries (spinach and salmon or perfect cinnamon lamb curry), to colourful side dishes (pomegranate and mint raita, kachumbar salad), and mouth-watering puddings (mango, lime and passion fruit jelly and pistachio and saffron kulfi).
'Full of real charm, personality, love and garlic' Yotam Ottolenghi
'Wonderful, vibrant...deeply personal food, alive and authentic - the best sort - and, frankly, I want to cook everything in this book' Nigella Lawson
**Look out for FRESH INDIA, Meera Sodha's new cookbook**
First-time cookbook writer Sodha takes on the cuisine of India in marvelous fashion. Sodha maintains that "the majority of Indian home cooking is fresh, simple, and quick." This book highlights the natural flavors of India while helping the reader understand how easy it is to replicate those flavors in the home kitchen. Many dishes that sound complicated are actually quite simple and easy to prepare, and they pack a lot of flavor. The explosive taste of pan-fried chicken livers in a cumin butter masala, or the deep, rich tones of dal makhani, will satiate the savory taste buds. For dessert, Sodha suggests pistachio and saffron kulfi or mango, lime, and passion fruit Jell-O. Full-page photos teem with color. Sodha offers helpful sections explaining how each Indian ingredient tastes and the best ways to use it, and how to fix a dish that's too spicy or salty. The power of this book lies in its simplicity both in terms of ingredients and technique.
