The food of India; tiffin; fish poultry vegetables; pulses; rice breads; accompaniments; sweets basics.
A definitive guide to the vast array of Indian food found in this exotic country. Where dishes vary not only from region to region but suburb to suburb, the range and scope of local specialities is endless: Moghul kormas, Assam teas and Delhi sweets being just a few. The research team behind this book travelled the length and breadth of India, talking to chefs, tasting the dishes and visiting local food producers, giving the reader an honest, insider view of the country's culinary delights and history. The photographs of Jason Lowe capture all the vibrancy and colour associated with the East, reflected in the colourful dishes whose recipes accompany them. Special open-out photographic sections illustrate the diversity of Indian herbs and spices, sweets and teas making the book extra special with their freshness and attractiveness. A must for any lover of India or Indian food. - Lucy Watson
