Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Shubhra is a great cooking instructor. She is teaching food she knows intimately, and yet she is always learning something new and bringing that to the kitchen. Her passion for Indian food and her ability to pass that on to her students is her greatest gift. She removes the mystery from Indian cooking and makes it easy, quick and tasty." —Jason Cammack, Culinary Coordinator, Sur La Table

"Shubhra's approach to Indian cuisine is easy, straightforward, and utterly delicious. I have had the opportunity to work with her on a few Community events and her cooking style, the simplicity of the recipes, and the passion behind her work has made me a fan for life!" —Nick Fisher, Whole Foods Market

"What I like best about Shubhra's new book is how she understands the dilemma and stress that comes with being a mother who wants to feed her family a healthy meal that will also taste great. Shubhra's use of Indian inspired spices and techniques is a great way to prepare and serve that fresh produce you got from your local farmers market or CSA. Whether you're a vegetarian, a vegan, or just want to have healthier dinner choices, you'll find a wealth of delicious recipes in Healthy Indian Vegetarian Cooking." —Jaden Hair, author, Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Favorites and Publisher of SteamyKitchen.com blog

"You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy these recipes. Shubhra takes the ho-hum out of eating the recommended daily servings of fruit and vegetables by preparing fresh locally available produce with readily available Indian spices and easy techniques. The healthy results are so delicious and satisfying the whole family will enjoy them and want more." —Peg Lee, Central Market, Event Liaison Manager

"Shubhra makes Indian cuisine accessible to the home cook in Entice with Spice and has made vegetarian dishes exciting and easy in her latest book. A delightful instructor and avid locavore, she skillfully marries exotic flavors with easy-to-follow preparation. Her recipes are a staple in my kitchen as I hope they will be in yours." —Sarah Augustine, Director, The Rice Epicurean Cooking School

"Shubhra has taken the veggie fare to another level. Healthy, delicious, fun, easy, and sexy. A must have for every home kitchen to lead a better life." —Vicky Ratnani, Chef, author, and TV host
