Sail down the Konkan coast with Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor on a gastronomical adventure as he glides on crystal blue waters, past shimmering golden sands and brooding forts, the salt sea air thick with legendary exploits of heroes long gone. A proud land so rich in history and nature’s bounty is bound to have a cuisine that is as glorious and exciting.

Konkan food has slowly been gaining in popularity with specialty restaurants catering to a devoted following for this distinct cuisine. Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, who is a strong proponent of home cooking now makes the most well kept secrets of the traditional recipes accessible to everyone in the Konkan Cookbook. Written in his characteristic simple and logical format, he helps you find the right ingredients and tips for authentic results. The dishes cover the traditional fare of Malwan, Goa and Mangalore.

In the book he casts his net far and wide, from Maharashtra down to Goa and Karnataka, and comes up with a catch that will astonish and delight any food lover. Watch your food repertoire undergo a flavoursome sea change with the sourness of kokum and the aroma of triphal. Sip Solkadhi for the soul. Try the crisp Bombil fry, Prawn Ghassi or the Chicken Xacuti. There is enough fare for the vegetarians also with dishes like Stuffed Brinjals (Bharli Vangi) and Potatoes in Spicy Manglorean Gravy (Batata Humman), or the Gram Consomme (Kulitcha Saar). Round off the meal with a sweet Chana Dal Kheer (Madgane) or Moong Dal Fudge (Moogori). All recipes given in the Book serve four people. All the recipes are traditional recipes for contemporary lifestyles, written with the precision and clarity that has made Chef Kapoor the most famous spokesman for Indian food today.

So come aboard the Konkan adventure as the master explorer of Indian cuisine opens up the treasure chest of yet another region of this rich continent.
