The first in a brand-new series, chef, broadcaster and food writer Roopa Gulati celebrates the beautifully varied world of vegetarian Indian food. A traditionally vegetarian country, there is much to explore in Indian cuisine, with subtle regional differences often becoming apparent. The mouth-watering recipes within these pages include chard pakoras; twice-cooked cauliflower, saffron and almond masala; paneer and apricot koftas; and traditional channa dal, all of which are photographed by the legendary David Loftus. Alongside the 70 delicious recipes, Roopa also introduces readers to the key techniques and ingredients in Indian cooking, such as the all-important spice blends that will help you create a true Indian vegetarian feast at home. Also in the series: Japan, Mexico and Italy.
