Book Description

27 Sep 2012
We should all be eating more vegetables, and Anjum's plethora of scintillating flavours and healthy recipes means even the most carnivorous among us will be happy to give meat a miss. As much of the subcontinent is vegetarian by religion, Indian food provides the ideal cuisine in which to discover some seriously tasty new approaches to vegetables, grains, cheeses and pulses. Anjum adapts the true flavours of India, with her trademark concern for healthy eating and a good diet, to make meals that are healthy, light, bright, modern and balanced, providing all the protein and other nutrients we all need for perfect health. This book teaches us all how to eat vegetarian recipes for life. Sandwiches, grills, salads, snacks and appetizers, and of course main dishes and curry recipes with their accompaniments, are all included. Breakfasts, brunches and barbecues supply unexpected treats, such as mile-high chickpea pancakes with Indian purple coleslaw and Delhi-style chargrilled sweetcorn with a spicy lime rub. Many of Anjum Anand's recipes are family favourites or based on the vibrant street food culture of India, adapted to bring them bang up to date.

Recipes include:
Spice-crusted halloumi with fig and pistachio chutney
Tandoori vegetable feast
Paneer tikka masala
Southern black pepper curry
Best ever grilled naan
Ginger-poached pears with pomegranate and poppy seeds

5.0 out of 5 stars I know how to cook 1 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Following the recipes was easy. Little bits outside the instructions are really nice addition, also the little extras she gives along the "real" recipes. I have now made three different items and both myself and the darling wife have enjoyed them very much.

I am not new to Indian cooking and have followed Blumenthal's and Keller's instructions, so if I can recommend this book, you can rest assured that it is a very good buy even for a home cook who just would like to learn to make nice food at home.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something to leven our meals 30 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I greatly enjoy a curry but I do find them very meat heavy. This book is very useful in adding some appropriate vegetable content to what might otherwise be too much Lamb Jalfrezi. The book is executed in sumptuous photography but the recipes are simple enough for even a junior cook. As ever the taste of India is reflected in colour and spice, but now it need not be as heavy as it formerly was.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good inspiration 6 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A good cookbook, especially and unsurprisingly - if you like both vegetarian AND Indian food, as I do.

Recipes are fairly simple to do and I've made a few. A lot of the recipes do, as you would expect, require a fair few ingredients, some of which you may not have. The 'pantry' section at the beginning is pretty useful, though, as it gives you a breakdown of the most used spices.

I have made the spiced cottage pie and also the everyday lentil curry and have been pretty pleased with both.

By emma who reads a lot TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Anjum Anand was already convincing with her previous books (Indian Food Made Easy in particular): she is a wonderful cook, food enthusiast and communicator. She has a particular knack for persuading you to get down the shops and ferret around till you find a packet of chat masala / asafoetida / dried mango powder / jaggery.... And producing easy-to-follow recipes that will make you glad you made the effort.

This book, though, adds to her previous achievements. Firstly, it's entirely vegetarian, but completely tempting. Great for our house: we've been eating less and less meat in 2012 and this book makes that process even easier. But also it represents a more original approach to cooking than her previous titles. Where before she's been advocating a more traditional South Asian home cooking, now she's putting her unique British AND Indian background to use and coming up with original dishes like tandoori baby potatoes, a squash cobbler, a spiced shepherds pie (of veg), masala baked beans, and a outrageous mango, pomegranate and coconut trifle.

One other excellent innovation is a whole additional level of serving suggestions, with extra recipes in smaller print at the foot of some pages to make authentic Indian street food chutnies and raitas. Fresh, rather than our more customary sugary preserves.

So far i've cooked a number of the dishes and (no surprise) they've come out wonderfully - I've ground my own parsi dhansak masala mix, done the Goan egg balchao, but also made her everyday lentil curry. And I may finally get round, at her nagging insistence, to making my own paneer and parathas. Which would be fab.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anjum Anand Indian Vegetarian Feast 9 Oct 2012
By L.H.
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I now have all of Anjum's cookery books! I was unsure at first because, although she seems quite well known by Amazon customers, I had never heard of her!! I am now totally addicted to her style of cooking! I have worked my way through many recipes in her other 3 books and the results totally convinced me to buy this vegetarian book - especially as I am a vegetarian. Every recipe in the first 3 books has turned out successful. Obviously, I have liked some more than others but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't be prepared to cook the lesser liked ones again. But the ones we love are cooked on a regular basis each week. I love the way Anjum has "anglicised" Indian food so that it can easily be eaten alongside English staples. i.e. I just love the Succulent Chicken Tikka which we have with salad and chips but I sprinkle the dried Mango powder on the chips instead of the deep fried new potatoes, which Anjum suggests. I found the new potatoes cooked that way, far too greasy. I substitute Quorn fillets for the chicken and the result is succulent and tasty.

What I love about her style of cooking is that, whilst she suggests what veg to use in any given dish, she also leaves you to choose your preference. She will also reassure you by saying: "Don't worry" if you don't have a certain ingregient - "it will still taste brilliant without it", or she'll suggest an alternative, all of which leaves you feeling far more confident to tackle what might otherwise be "unfamiliar" ingredients. I also love the fact that for the most part, all the recipes can be prepared either very quickly or at least in a reasonable amount of time and are always easy to do. Nothings complicated. I also love her blending of ingredients. Very, very clever and flavoursome. What more can you ask?

I can't wait to try this new edition to my collection! Well done Anjum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 3 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The recipes in this book produce the most delicious dishes imaginable. Anjum gets you to use fresh tomatoes that have been processed with a stick blender where other chefs have you using tinned. I thought it was a bit of a pain at first - then I tasted the difference. The only quibble I have is that it can be difficult to tell how long something will take to cook, e.g. she says to cook something until the sauce becomes "quite thick" but does not give any idea of whether this could be two minutes or ten. It makes it quite tricky to coordinate several dishes, but I'm sure I'll soon come to know how long it all takes as I intend to use this book very regularly indeed.
