In this, her eighth book, Anjum Anand presents her absolute favourite dishes from all over India.
This is her tribute to her homeland, to its extraordinary food culture, drawn from its diverse regions as well as from a host of traders, settlers and immigrants over the years. Anjum offers her personal collection of the most authentic recipes she has gathered over years of travelling throughout the regions of India.
As vibrant as a Delhi spice market, the book reveals the vast range of flavours, cooking techniques and occasions that revolve around this popular style of cuisine, and the evocative chapters cover the times of day and celebrations that typify eating in India, such as Indian Summer, On High Days and Holidays, Sunset Bites, and Street-side Tiffin. There are also features on key ingredients to illustrate how versatile, vibrant and accessible Indian food really is. Anjum is the queen of Indian cooking, and her recipes are brilliantly easy to follow, as well as moreishly good.
