Sensuous is the word that best defines the flavor and texture of Indian cuisine, a cuisine that is visually and aromatically one of the most opulent in the world. Marut Sikka, acclaimed food consultant, cuts out the fuss, and shares home-style Indian dishes that are perfect for everyday cooking. He uses his amazing knowledge of combining spices to make dishes taste extraordinary. The recipes are authentic – a testament to simple ingredients producing sublime tastes. Indian Flavours starts with a brief introduction to some of the spices of India. The rest of the book is divided into unique sections such as the Spice Family, Fresh Herbs and Vegetables, Dried Herbs, Seeds and Leaves, and Dried Fruits. As the author explores each section, he gives simple, but delectable recipes, such as nutmeg potato roundels, lamb brains with black pepper, dill-infused grilled fish, jalapenos with jaggery and coconut, and rose petal and rice pudding, with vivid photos that are sure to impress. With streamlined techniques and intense, authentic flavors, Indian Flavours, a classic in its own right, heralds a new generation of Indian cookbooks.
