Overview

Love Indian food but feel it's too daunting to recreate at home? Those complex authentic flavors! Those dozens of spice blends! The long prep time! Fear not. Award-winning cooking teacher Raghavan Iyer puts the breeze and ease into Indian cooking. Taking a heavily illustrated, step-by-step approach, he introduces cooks to one of the world's most popular cuisines. With his natural charm and enthusiasm, Raghavan begins each chapter by explaining the recipe choices, what techniques are included, and a suggested order in which to approach the recipes. The book's 100 authentic recipes use only ingredients readily available at the local supermarket. Taking into account time restraints, each dish can be quickly assembled and will give home cooks the confidence to create knockout Tandoori Chicken, Coconut Squash with Chiles, Turmeric Hash Browns, Saffron-Pistachio Ice Cream Bars, and Mango Bread Pudding with Chai Spices. From basic breads to chutneys and savory pickles, from tasty dal to fragrant basmati rice pilafs, from crispy starters to enjoy with a Slumdog Martini, Indian Cooking Unfolded is a 21st-century approach to one of the most ancient—and popular—cuisines.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Iyer, winner of the IACP Cooking Teacher of the Year Award, moved to Minnesota from Mumbai as a student. Here he shares his hard-won knowledge about creating the flavors of India from the supermarkets of the Midwest. Every ingredient called for will be available in a medium-sized supermarket, no specialty shops required. The book is structured as a series of lessons beginning with basics (e.g., Steamed White Rice, Garam Masala) and progressing through starters; breads and relishes; salads; soups; meat, seafood, and vegetarian main dishes; side dishes; desserts; and beverages. The skills developed in earlier lessons will be employed later on. One recipe in each section (e.g., Ultimate Chicken Curry, Sweet-Scented Pilaf, Funnel Cakes in Saffron Syrup) features a foldout section with step-by-step photos. Iyer's voice is authoritative but friendly and encouraging. VERDICT Packed with tips and information, this book is a treasure for anyone interested in basic Indian cooking.—Stephanie Klose, Library Journal
