India: A Culinary Journey
AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 25, 2018
Prem Souri Kishore invites readers on a personally-guided tour across the subcontinent, exploring the beloved foods, history, myths, festivals, and traditions that are unique to each region along the way. More than just a collection of recipes, India: A Culinary Journey gives readers a taste of India's vibrant foodways, whether amidst the hustle and bustle of Chennai, where hawkers fry up delectable aloo ki tikki on a crowded Marina Beach; or in a railway car in Punjab where passengers share not only lively discussions about politics, cricket, and Bollywood films, but also whatever they have brought onboard for lunch; to the tranquility of the family home where the daily routine includes making fresh yogurt, hand-grinding spices with a stone, and taking an afternoon nap in the mango orchard.
Generously spiced with the author's memories and personal stories from an Indian childhood brimming with delicious adventures, India: A Culinary Journey brings the flavors of India alive.
- More than 100 easy-to-follow recipes, all adapted for the North American kitchen
