Book Description

4 Sep 2009
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.

Product Description


"A blend of tradition and fusion, though some dishes, such as Indian Shepherd's Pie or Keralan Salmon Wrap... however the book does do justice to the diversity of Indian cuisine." -- TIME OUT, August 2008

"Anjum's book is packed with recipes for light, modern Indian food for today's busy cooks, featuring delicious dishes, full of Flavour." -- Hello! 30th September 2008

"TV spice girl Anjum Anand serves up some modern Indian recipes for busy cooks." -- Hello! September 2008

"Alot of Indian cookery books make you feel daunted by the long lists of ingredients and the multi-step processes, but this one is refreshingly simple and straightforwardly tempting. A timely guide to good Indian food that makes sense in an English kitchen." -- Nigella Lawson in Delicious Magazine, December 2008

"Anjum Anan's great supper dishes combine Anglo-Indian flavours to wonderful effect." -- Daily Express, December 2008

"Anjum Anand.... attempts to simplify some of India's more complex recipes for domestic cooks who ahve never handled more than a cook-in sauce." -- The Daily Telegraph, 25th October 2008

"Anjum's book is packed with recipes for light, modern indian food for today's busy cooks, featuring delicious dishes, full of flavour." -- Hello Magazine, 30th September 2008

"Her vibrant puddings would surely please both dinner guests and deities, with many using seasonal ingredients."
-- The Times, 4th September 2008

"Recipes include classics such as Kashmiri chicken and rogan josh as well as hybrid recipes such as Indian shepherd's pie and battered Amritsari sole. As the title suggests, they are simple to make and once you have got the basic spice cupboard, you wont have trouble with the shopping either."
-- Olive Magazine, 1st September 2008

"Take a cuisine that's the nations favourite, an easy-on-the-eye cook whose debut TV series was a big hit, and light recipes aimed at today's busy cooks (think Goan prawn cake and steamed spinanch and rice dumplings). The result is a no-brainer- success!" -- Delicious Magazine, 1st September 2008 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars simple yet tasty indian food 1 Nov 2008
By Dazzer
I've watched the TV series with interest so I thought I'd take the plunge and buy Anjums new book. There are a lot of new recipes I've not heard of before in here but the first one I tried was the good old vindaloo. I was a little skeptical because there didn't seem to be a lot of ingredients but as it turned out it made a delicious curry. These proberbly aren't pure authentic Indian recipes but that's not what the book is claiming, after all the series is called Indian food made easy.
I've bought several so called Indian cook books that failed to deliver but this is not one of them. I'm definately going to be hunting out other books by the same author

I have recently bought this book, as I have her other one and use it all the time, and I love it! This is a classic easy, simple Indian cooking book. She makes things easy and interesting by explaining where the traditional dishes come from and what they were made for in the first place.
I think this book is aimed to make Indian food more accesable to the English to make, rather than the curries etc that we are used to from takeaways. Her writing is fun and approachable and she goes through everything from starters, sauces, pudding, drinks.
I for one, will be buying other titles of hers and would urge people who like simple, easy Indian traditional cuisine without the fuss and expense of a takeawy to buy this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Cookbook for Light, Modern Indian Meals 29 Oct 2008
I found Anjum's latest cookbook a refreshingly light, modern take on Indian cuisine, with a fantastic selection of indian light meals and snacks, such as the Spongy Lentil Cake or Goan Chorizo Sandwich, and adapted Anglo-Indian treats like Indian Shepherd's Pie and Spicy Keralan Mash. Unlike some Indian cookbooks, that can focus too much on just curry's, this book offers stews, sundal's and a plethora of fish, chicken, meat, vergetables, beans and lentils and rice suggestions. Her tips and information on the cooking in different regions of India complimented the contents well. I can't wait for her new TV series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Worth every penny. 7 Jan 2009
This book is brilliant.

The recipe's are easy to do, easy to follow, and the ingrediants are easy to source (and I live in a little fishing village in Cornwall!).

She has a very good grip on the different regional food, and gives a two page spread to each region that helps you to understand the history of the food, and how to combine dishes for dinner parties.

She has an in depth explaination of cooking methods, (the first few pages MUST be read to cook the dishes as they need to be). She explains all of the spices, and often gives alternatives for hard to find ingrediants.

I have tried five different recipies after 2 weeks of having it, and every recipe makes me excited to cook more from her book. Here's a selection of the different recipes:

Red Goan Chicken
Green Chicken Biryani
Pork Vindaloo
Pilau Rice (lots of different types)
Goan Prawn Cake
Lamb Shank Korma
Cannellini Bean Curry

All of the ones I have cooked, have some spice - although she insists that if you don't like spicy food, you can take out the chilli - but the key to every recipe is the flavour.

These recipes are not what you get in Indian Take-Out - they are way better! If you like cooking, like proper food, and like Indian Food, this is the cookbook for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes 26 Mar 2013
Nice selection of recipes-different from other Indian cookbooks. There is a great chicken tikka salad with pistachio and lemon dressing-very easy yet tastes amazing. All recipes are easy-the hardest part is making a paste-just make sure you have a lot of Indian spices as there are many used throughout the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book 21 May 2013
By Franky
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love cook books & I buy them to improve my cooking skills. I do use them and would throughly recommend this book. This book has numerous great receipes. My one criticism is that I would like more ...there are a couple of 'snack' receipes which i don't need - but one brilliant lunch or breakfast spicy eggs & tomatoes which is superb ... as is the bengali fish stew and bengali chicken curry . oh and the tomatoe chutcney .. oh and the mango mousse... Yes I will be purchasing more of Anjum's cookery books.
