Tradition meets innovation in this celebration of Indian cuisine made for the American kitchen.
Many of us love the flavours of Indian food but are intimidated by the idea of cooking it ourselves. Amisha Gurbani teaches home cooks to embrace spice and build dishes that play with sweet, spicy, sour and savoury flavours. Inspired by the spices and dishes of her native India and the produce-forward cooking style of her adopted home in California’s Bay Area, Gurbani’s culinary creations are remarkable for their unique flavour pairings.
Mumbai Modern offers 100 recipes, complete with Gurbani’s stunning photographs, including breakfasts (whole wheat pancakes with ghee-sautéed banana and cardamom); appetisers and salads (lentil fritters and yoghurt sauce); mains (masala veggie burgers); bread, rice and snacks (poori, roti, panzanella); sauces, dips and jams (avocado cilantro pepita sauce); desserts (blood orange and hibiscus tart) and drinks (kumquat ginger cinnamon whisky sour).
