• Modern Indian Food without all the fuss but with all the flavour
• Over 100 delectable recipes that contain 6 ingredients or less
• Monisha Bharadwaj is the winner of Foodwriters' cookery book of the year
Indian food is one of the best-loved and most flavoursome and varied cuisines in the world. It is also an extremely versatile style of cooking - whether you want to cook a quick one-pot meal or a banquet for your friends, there is a multitude of regional recipes, fresh ingredients and aromatic combinations of herbs and spices to choose from. But Indian food is often perceived as too complicated and time-consuming to cook at home - many people prefer to enjoy Indian food at restaurants and as takeaways. Indian in 6 is the first book to show you that you don't need a long list of ingredients to create tasty food in a matter of minutes.
Best-selling author Monisha Bharadwaj has created over 100 delectable recipes using 6 ingredients or less, plus a storecupboard of salt, sunflower oil and ginger-garlic paste. Using recipes from royal India, regional specialities and family traditions, she has distilled the essences of taste, colour and aroma to create dishes that are authentic, modern, but above all, very simple.
Monisha begins by describing the new style of Indian cuisine and explains the basic techniques and ingredients. Chapters include soups and starters, fish and shellfish, meat and vegetables, sprouts and lentils. There are also recipes for rice, breads and pancakes, salads and raitas, chutneys and relishes as well as puddings and drinks. Be inspired by classic recipes such as crab with south Indian spices, modern dishes such as wild mango and mustard salad or the slightly more exotic taste of watermelon bread, chocolate burfi or rose lassi.
For fantastic Indian food without the fuss, Indian in 6 is the only cookbook you will need!
