Wholesome recipes, bold flavours and easy cheats to create a true taste of India in a modern kitchen '20 Best New Cookbooks of 2018' Independent '3 Comfort Food Cookbooks For Autumn' Huffpost UK 'Her style of simple yet delicious Indian recipes will take you on a journey through this extravagant cuisine' Dr Rupy Aujla Food writer Mallika Basu grew up enjoying exotic flavours from across India in an unconventional, bustling home in Kolkata - and then spent years recreating them in a London kitchen. Now she shares those recipes, techniques and shortcuts so you too can cook wholesome, real Indian food simply. Embrace weekday dinners with lightly spiced fish curry, wok-friendly Goan chilli beef fry or silken kofta curry made with packs of ready-rolled meatballs. For leisurely weekends, tuck into a feast of Vindaloo pulled pork; give your Sunday roast a sumptuous twist with spicy marinades, or enjoy a whole roasted cauliflower encrusted with nut butter. And that's before you even think about swirling dosa and more for a full-on Indian brunch... Mallika's recipes respect the past and celebrate the present in an easy and informal way that will broaden your understanding of Indian cooking, and inspire you to return to these simple recipes time and time again.
