"Singla debunks misconceptions that Indian food is spicy, complicated, and unhealthy. Highly recommended."--Library Journal, starred review
"As with her first book, readers can expect a can-do candor about cooking from the author.... The title reflects the belief of this Indian-born and Pennsylvania-raised woman, a self-described 'nontrained home chef, ' that there's nothing to be afraid of when it comes to Indian food not even the cost of supplies."--Chicago Tribune, Bill Daley
"Through her writing, cooking and educating about healthy, homestyle Indian food, she is poised to become a household name."--Chicago Sun-Times
Indian for Everyone is the go-to Indian cookbook that every home cook should own. This is Anupy Singla's most comprehensive cookbook yet, with more than 100 classic recipes, including many with meat and seafood, but written to be adaptable for vegan and vegetarian diets. The majority of the recipes are also safe for gluten-free readers, making Indian for Everyone a flexible, practical resource for almost every reader.
Indian for Everyone begins with helpful sections outlining the most useful cooking equipment needed for preparing Indian food and a primer on Indian spices, herbs, and other common ingredients. The book is divided into eight sections: The Basics (spice blends, chutneys, drinks); Street Food and Snacks; Vegetable Stir-Fries; Dal; Vegetable Curries; Poultry, Meat, and Seafood; Bread; and Dessert.
From classic favorites like Mattar Paneer (Peas and Homemade Cheese), Tandoori Chicken, and Vegetable Samosas that will be familiar to anyone who frequents Indian restaurants in the US, to less well-known dishes that originated from different regions across India, Indian for Everyone opens up the diverse world of delicious Indian cuisine to home cooks everywhere. This is the one Indian cookbook that every home cook should own.
