Meet the Author

"Any American cook who longs to plunge deeply into the cuisine of India is bound to grow impatient with the cookbooks offered by major United States publisher....But mainstream cookbook publishers are no longer the only game in town." Anne Mendelson, New York Times - July 18. 2007 Pushpa Bhargava is a mother of two who came to the US in 1972 as a newlywed. Pushpa currently lives outside New York city with her husband Vikram. She has two children who are business executives in the greater New York area. She has seen a whole generation of Indian Americans including her own two children grow from birth to highly successful professionals. As rich as their American experience has been, she felt they missed out on the warmth of the touch of mothers, aunts and grandmothers that she had the privilege of having grown up with in a traditional home in India. Her book was initially an attempt to fill that gap that started as hand written recipes for her own children. To her pleasant surprise, there was a huge base of mainstream US and International customers who saw the same value in the book. In less than two years the first edition was completely sold out -mostly through street fairs and personal networking. It was replaced by the second edition - that was available through the main stream book outlets and websites. It also sold out in about a year. The third printing has been available since December 2010. The book exemplifies a wonderful and unique trait of the American life... "If you will build it, he will come." (Movie - "Field of Dreams"). Pushpa dared to "build' a book. And the users came! Thus, this is a story of a loving home maker mother and her engineer husband who had few resources and little knowledge of writing or publishing. Through sheer grit and determination lasting almost eight years and with the help of friends, family and a camera, they toiled on perfecting the recipes, designing the book, starting a publishing company, going to Book Fairs and finding a willing printer.

    amazing and comprehensive book

    I am a first generation Indian in the United States and grew up eating daily the Indian food my mom prepared. As i went out on my own, and tried to cook the dishes i missed, i always would end up calling my mom as she tried to spend the next hour on the phone helping me make a dish that resembled hers. This book accurately spills out what an Indian mom would tell her kids when they try to make what they were used to, growing up. Its in simple to understand recipes with many illustrations. There are no crazy complicated steps that indian cooking many times has. It has most of my favorite dishes. A must have for any person trying to cook authentic indian food.

    Fairly Authentic and Simple Recipts

    I like the bulk of this book but am disappointed that the cook has chosen to use Ricotta Cheese in lieu of the actual Indian ingredients in some recipes. I understand that she wanted to make it easy for Westerners but this is a big NO NO and it does impact the true flavor of a dish. Overall it is probably going to be a staple for simple home cooking in my Cook Book Collection. Enjoy~
