Product description

From the Inside Flap

Betty Crocker's Indian Home Cooking Namaste! Vannakam! With this welcome in two of India's many languages, Betty Crocker and culinary expert Raghavan Iyer invite you to join them in exploring the wonders of Indian food. If you enjoy a good food adventure, you'll love Indian cooking! With Betty and Raghavan as your guides, you'll savor the seductive aromas and flavors of Indian food in your own kitchen. Your tour of India's foods begins with a "pantry" guide to the ingredients that can get you started with a quick visit to the supermarket. The "magic" of Indian cooking is awakening your senses to all the wonderful spices that transform everyday ingredients into the truly exceptional. You can experience all the exotic flavors of India with eleven basic spices and a few choice lentils and beans that are widely available. You'll find that many staples of the Indian kitchen—spinach, potatoes, shrimp, yogurt and rice—are your favorites too. Turn to complete glossaries on spices and seasonings; fresh produce; and lentils and grains for in–depth explanations and photographs. Raghavan's lyrical memories, amusing stories and insightful descriptions of India, which accompany the recipes, give each one a context in the culture of this vast land. Now you're ready to cook! With over 180 recipes to choose from, there are dishes for every occasion—from an easy side to add pizzazz to weeknight dinners, like Spicy Potato Fry, to a great center–piece for a party, like Seafood Pilaf with Saffron. Find classic favorites that you've probably enjoyed at Indian restaurants, like crispy potato samosas, grilled chicken tandoori and home–baked naan breads. Always wanted to make Chai, the spiced tea that's so popular in coffee bars? The authentic and easy recipe that everyone drinks in India is here. Whatever you're in the mood for, you'll find it here. If you like to cook meatless meals once in awhile, you'll get lots of ideas and inspiration. Turn to the chapter on lentils for warming options like North Indian Chili. Crazy for breads? Serve Spiced Puffed Breads or Onion–filled Tandoori Breads to make any meal extra–special. Check out the desserts chapter for irresistible sweets like Banana–Coffee Ice Cream and Fresh Fruit with Cooling Spices. Or when you want an unforgettable dinner party or a fun picnic, just glance at the Indian menus section for great suggestions. Filled with beautiful food photography as well as gorgeous photographs of the people of India, her monuments and places of natural beauty, this book will transport you to a far–off land of enticing flavors.
