Sue Baker's view...

If you enjoy eating Indian Food but have never had a go yourself then this just might be the book to get you started. Developed from her blog, Meera Sodha’s book is a charming and engaging guide to the food she loves, home cooked and simple, India at its best. The recipes are well chosen and supplemented with instructions on creating your own spice mixes, making paneer and ghee with an appendix on ingredients - what they are giving both their Indian and English names. A book with real staying power I suspect!

Synopsis

Made in India Cooked in Britain: Recipes from an Indian Family Kitchen by Meera Sodha

This book is full of real charm, personality, love and garlic. The best Indian food is cooked (and eaten) at home . (Yotam Ottolenghi). Real Indian food is fresh, simple and packed with flavour and in this book, Meera Sodha introduces Britain to the food she grew up eating here every day. Unlike the stuff you get at your local curry house, her food is fresh, vibrant and surprisingly quick and easy to make. In this collection, Meera serves up a feast of over 130 delicious recipes collected from three generations of her family: there's everything from hot chappatis to street food (chilli paneer and beetroot and feta samosas), fragrant curries (spinach and salmon or perfect cinnamon lamb curry), to colourful side dishes (pomegranate and mint raita, kachumbar salad), and mouth-watering puddings (mango, lime and passion fruit jelly and pistachio and saffron kulfi). MADE IN INDIA will change the way you cook, eat, and think about Indian food, forever.
