About this title:


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.

Product Description:

"Looking back on my formative years in Mumbai, I realised that every dish we cooked symbolised an occasion or a mood and I have created dishes and menus to reflect the four main moods we cook in: hungry, lazy, indulgent and celebratory. My mother strived to give us the best Indian home cooked meal every day of the week and this book will introduce just how to do this with healthy, easy to follow recipes. It's all part of my DNA and nothing gives me more pleasure than watching my friends and family tucking into a gorgeous curry. The scent of the spices brings a simple pleasure like no other. It's a heady mix and one that we rarely delve into in contemporary British cooking and in Indian Kitchen I share it all...the spice blends, the family recipes and the techniques."


What really goes on in an Indian kitchen? What is eaten on a day to day basis? And how do Indians rustle up a healthy curry for an everyday meal when most people assume it takes forever to make one? In Indian Kitchen, Maunika Gowardhan shares quick, simple recipes made from easy-to-find ingredients that will suit any mood and occasion, from a comforting weeknight curry, to an impressive feast for family and friends. Indian Kitchen will inspire you to add Indian cooking into your weekly menu.
