Indian Recipes is a delightful and unusual collection of around 300 recipes by one of India’s leading writers on cookery, Premila Lal (well known to all readers of Femina and Eve’s Weekly). These recipes are not so much for the novice, but rather for the more adventurous and imaginative cook who is no longer satisfied with any common dish. Premila Lal’s recipes very from elaborate and exotic preparations (apple pulao, spring lamb cooked in honey and yoghurt, ripe mango curry) to more everyday dishes (tamarind chops, prawns in spinach or mustard, akoori-on-toast). She has also included a variety of sumptuous vegetable, egg and fish dishes.
This classic in Indian cookery books, published now in an exciting new format, will delight anyone interested in producing a gourmet meal.
Hindi may or may not help in unifying the country, while it is trying hard, there may be no harm in letting an Uttar Pradesh snack win over a Tamil Nadu heart. Mrs Lal’s book, deserves a fair trial.
Those who delight in cooking and want new ideas will find plenty to interest them in producing a gourmet meal.
