Description

Jamie Oliver: 'I love Maunika's cooking. Her food is a joy - she makes incredible Indian food really achievable at home. A fantastic Indian cookbook.'

Yotam Ottolenghi: 'Reading Maunika's book feels as though you're actually sitting in an Indian family kitchen, sharing stories and recipes. I've been inspired by her to make my own paneer and to play with pickled watermelon rind. Delightful!'

Growing up in Mumbai, Maunika Gowardhan learned the secrets of home cooking, Indian-style. Now living in the UK, Maunika is often asked, 'what do Indians cook on a day to day basis?' And, 'how is it that you can rustle up a curry for an everyday meal when you're so busy?'

The answer is in chapters of this book. Hungry include recipes made from easy-to-find ingredients for when you're starving and short of time. And Lazy contains recipes for when you want something a bit slower, a bit comforting, but still straightforward.

Indian food is also about feasting, so when you have the luxury of time and want to put some real love into a meal at the weekend, you can turn to Indulgent, or when you have friends and family coming over then Celebratory is the chapter for you.

Whatever your mood, Indian Kitchen will inspire you to add Indian cooking into your weekly menu.

Review quote

"One of the most exciting, entertaining and engaging exponents currently championing Indian food" * THE NEWCASTLE JOURNAL * "A new name has taken her place alongside the great Madhur Jaffrey,
and she is threatening her supremacy" * APPETITE MAGAZINE * "Indian Kitchen is packed full of delicious and inspiring recipes which have been split into four groups depending on your mood... as well as bold and unique curries that you'll never have seen on your local takeaway menu, why not try something totally different, like mango and cardamom Barfi" * HEAT MAGAZINE * "Teeming with delicious Indian recipes inspired by traditional family meals. With everything from cakes and curries to chutneys and a rather good five-minute naan recipe, you'll be hiding it from light-fingered friends" * STYLIST * "The first book from Indian chef Maunika Gowardhan is a stunner!
Light and breezy recipes sit alongside rich Indian classics that will get you drooling as soon as you see the cover, and her Tadka Dal rocks!" * GRAZIA * Maunika's book is divided into chapters named Hungry, Lazy, Indulgent and Celebratory; the first packed with lipsmacking quick recipes and masses of other familiar and intriguing dishes (all clearly very true to Maunika's Mumbai upbringing). Later on in the book, rich curries and opulent veggie dishes too, for the hordes. I'll definitely be using this one regularly * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * "Authentic but achievable Indian recipes" * SUNDAY TIMES * Maunika's recipes are delight: elegant, delicious, well though out and carefully explained.They bring warmth and flavour to my table, are simple enough for supper and sophisticated enough for the most special dinner. In short it is a book as charming and beautiful as Maunika herself * THANE PRINCE * Reading Maunika's book feels as though you're actually sitting in an Indian family kitchen, sharing stories and recipes. I've been inspired by her to make my own paneer and to play with pickled watermelon rind. Delightful! * YOTAM OTTOLENGHI * I love Maunika's cooking. Her food is a joy - she makes incredible Indian food really achievable at home. A fantastic Indian cookbook. * JAMIE OLIVER *
