This beautiful follow-up to Anupy Singla's widely praised first cookbook, the "Indian Slow Cooker," is a unique guide to preparing favorite recipes from the Indian tradition using entirely vegan ingredients. Featuring more than 50 recipes, and illustrated with color photography throughout, these great recipes are all prepared in healthful versions that use vegan alternatives to rich cream, butter, and meat. The result is a terrific addition to the culinary resources of any cook interested in either vegan or Indian cuisine. Singla--a mother of two, Indian emigre, and former TV news journalist--has a distinctive style and voice that brings alive her passion for easy, authentic Indian food. Some of these recipes were developed by her mother through the years, but many Singla developed herself, including fusion recipes that pull together diverse traditions from across the Indian subcontinent. She shows the busy, harried family that cooking healthy is simple and that cooking Indian is just a matter of understanding a few key spices. As Singla sees it, acquiring and using the proper spices is the key to preparing her healthful recipes at home. Singla has recently brought to market her own line of traditional Indian spice trays (also known as a "masala dabba"), which is being sold by retail outlets like Williams-Sonoma. "Vegan Indian Cooking" builds off of Singla's vast expertise in simplifying and perfecting Indian spices and unique, custom spice blends, making delicious Indian cooking accessible to even the most hurried home chef.

Review quote

Praise for Anupy Singla and "Indian Slow Cooker" "In her friendly voice, Anupy Singla welcomes everyone into her kitchen, even busy and beginner cooks. With her comprehensive guide to ingredients and surprisingly simple and healthy recipes that perfume the house on a cold day, "The Indian Slow Cooker" is a great first book on Indian cooking. We love recommending it to our customers!" -- Lara Hamilton, Owner of Book Larder, Seattle, WA "Of all the world's cuisines, India's is perhaps best suited to the steady simmer of a slow cooker...If you love Indian food, have a look at Anupy Singla's "The Indian Slow Cooker." Folded in with lush food photography are easy, healthful recipes with traditional flavors." --Lois White, "Better Homes & Gardens" "My favorite new slow cooker book is The Indian Slow Cooker by Anupy Singla....Because Indian dishes are rich in spices and robust flavors, they stand up well in slow cookers. Singla actually developed the recipes specifically for the slow cooker so the techniques and ingredients work well in the machine." --Genevieve Ko, "Good Housekeeping," October 14, 2011 "Singla's book goes against what many believe is required of Indian cuisine--infusing hot oil with a whole mess of spices as the base for dishes. Instead, she argues, throw everything into the Crock-Pot and let the aromatics do their thing... the book gives old- and new-school cooks alike ample reason to give Indian food a shot." --Janet Rausa-Fuller, "Chicago Sun-Times," October 20, 2011 "Ms. Singla says her book is aimed at anyone who wants to eat more vegetarian food and she doesn't believe in calling Indian food 'spicy' or 'exotic' anymore." --"Wall Street Journal," India Real Time Blog, August 24, 2010 "[The Indian Slow Cooker] is slim in appearance, a mere 136 pages. Yet the author has packed its pages with 50-plus recipes, lots of guidance and enough enthusiasm for slow cookers and Indian food that fans of either or both wil
