Indian in 6 by Monisha Bharadwaj
Indian food is often perceived as too complicated and too time consuming to cook at home. But, for the most part, modern home cooking in India is quite simple. In Indian in 6 award-winning food writer Monisha Bharadwaj shows just how easy it is to create delectable Indian food that is authentic while also virtually effortless. Each of Monisha's exciting Indian dishes uses just 6 ingredients or less, with the only store cupboard ingredients required being vegetable oil, salt and ginger-garlic paste. She uses simple and healthy cooking methods to bring the rich flavours of the sub-continent to your table, in a matter of minutes, and Gus Filgate's sumptuous photographs bring the dishes to vibrant life. Try a Creamy Spinach and Coconut Soup or Chilli Tiger Prawns with Sesame Seeds as a starter. For a main course, you could have Creamy Silver Lamb Curry or Tandoori-style Baked Red Chicken accompanied by a Wild Mango and Mustard Seed Salad. And then perhaps finish off with a Rose Lassi.Whether you want a quick lunch or a dinner menu to impress your friends, here are restaurant-quality dishes, simplified for your kitchen.
