Following the huge success of Anjum's television debut in BBC's Indian Food Made Easy, the same team came together again for a new series and accompanying book, which focused on regional Indian cooking. Based on the same principles - light, modern Indian food for today's busy cooks - Anjum has now created a new collection of delicious dishes that are easy and often quick to put together and full of flavour. All the recipes from the television series are here as well as many more, divided into chapters on Brunches and Light Meals, Seafood, Chicken, Lamb, Vegetables, Beans and Lentils, Bread and Rice, Raitas and Chutneys. In addition, Anjum gives tips for using core Indian ingredients and the book includes features on the cooking of different regions, as well as suggestions for menus and entertaining.
Anjum Anand is well known as the presenter of two BBC2 series of Indian Food Made Easy. Her accompanying books - Indian Food Made Easy and Anjum's New Indian - were both bestsellers. Anjum appears in newspapers and magazines and broadcasts regularly on radio and TV about her light, healthy, modern take on Indian food. Her new book, Eat Right for your Body Type, the super-healthy diet based on Ayurveda was published in January. She lives with her husband and daughter in north London.
