Anjum Anand has presented two hit series of the BBC cookery programme Indian Food Made Easy and is the author of the accompanying best-selling books: Indian Food Made Easy and Anjum's New Indian, both published by Quadrille.
In India, a curry is a dish whose sauce is flavoured with a harmonious blend of spices. In the new edition of this deliciously spicy book Anjum Anand presents an eclectic choice of her favourite curries. As with all Anjum's recipes, they are written to suit a lighter, healthier way of eating; but every dish bursts with the flavours of India. Some are simple one-pot curries while others recreate the multi-layered flavours of restaurant classics. Divided into chapters on Fish and Seafood, Poultry and Game, Meat and Vegetable curries, there is a final chapter featuring the usual accompaniments: vegetable side dishes, breads, rice, chutneys and raitas. This is the essential book for all lovers of Indian food, whether they are confident cooks or novice enthusiasts.
Whether you want to lose weight or find a diet that chimes with your body type to bring you optimum health, Eat right for your body type is for you. Anjum Anand believes the key to sustainable, healthy weight-loss does not lie in modern Western science or diet experts but in the Indian system of Ayurveda - the oldest and most holistic medical system on the planet. Translating as 'the science of living wisely and well', Ayurveda teaches us how to maintain optimum health and harmony both within ourselves and with nature. In this groundbreaking diet book, Anjum shows how to work out your body type, the foods you should eat (or avoid) and how to combine them into delicious recipes for every meal. Uniquely, this Ayurvedic cookbook includes recipes from East and West, as well as complete food charts stating which food are best for each body type. For anyone purely interested in healthy eating the 75 recipes are all low fat and healthy. Good eating hints and tips, a range of meal plans and advice on recommended exercise and lifestyle for each body type complete the book.
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.
Indian food is one of the UK's favourite cuisines, so why don't we cook it more often at home? This book is the answer: Anjum shows how we can all create a delicious curry in just 20 minutes, and provides tips on stocking your cupboards with time-saving 'cheat' ingredients and a plethora of hints on how to make cooking Indian at home as easy as possible, while the 'Take One - ' feature shows you how to make three great meals from just one storecupboard ingredient. Whether you're feeding the family, puzzling over how to jazz up vegetable dishes, or entertaining friends, there's something here for every occasion. A plethora of spicy salads, using fresh vegetables and grains, will suit the modern lighter style of eating, while a chapter of fabulously fresh Indian 'tapas' makes entertaining a dream. After a busy day at work, throw together Anjum's lamb kebabs with a yoghurt-apricot relish in 10 minutes flat, or make tandoori salmon tacos that children will adore. And save room for pudding; a luscious ginger chai tiramisu will satisfy the most jaded palate!
Following the huge success of Anjum's television debut in BBC's Indian Food Made Easy, the same team came together again for a new series and accompanying book, which focused on regional Indian cooking. Based on the same principles - light, modern Indian food for today's busy cooks - Anjum has now created a new collection of delicious dishes that are easy and often quick to put together and full of flavour. All the recipes from the television series are here as well as many more, divided into chapters on Brunches and Light Meals, Seafood, Chicken, Lamb, Vegetables, Beans and Lentils, Bread and Rice, Raitas and Chutneys. In addition, Anjum gives tips for using core Indian ingredients and the book includes features on the cooking of different regions, as well as suggestions for menus and entertaining.
