"Home Style" Indian Cooking Demystified
With an amazing compilation of over 100 delectable Indian dishes, many of which you can't get in any Indian restaurant for love or for money, this is unlike any other Indian Cook book. What this book focuses on is what Indians eat every day in their homes. It then in a step-by-step manner makes this mysterious, never disclosed, "Home Style" Indian cooking accessible to anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of cooking and a stomach for adventure.
Prasenjeet Kumar, the corporate lawyer turned gourmand, in this second book of his series "How to Cook everything in a Jiffy" explores the contours of what sets Indian "Home Style" food so apart from restaurant food. In his uniquely semi-autobiographical style, he starts with his quest for Indian food in London, wonders why his European friends don't have such a "strange" debate between "Home Style" and "Restaurant" food, and learns that the whole style of restaurant cooking in India is diametrically opposed to what is practised in Indian homes with respect to the same dish.
You may like this book if:
* You are an Indian pining for a taste of your home food anywhere in the world, including India.
* You are an Indian, reasonably adept in your own regional cuisine, for example, South Indian cuisine, but want to learn about the "Home Style" culinary traditions of the Eastern and Northern India as well.
* You are NOT an Indian but you love Indian cuisine and have wondered if someone could guide you through the maze of spices that Indians use, and help you tame down the oil and Chilli levels of many of their dishes.
The book presupposes a basic knowledge of cooking procedures. So if you are a complete newbie, the author strongly advises you to start with his first book: "How To Cook In A Jiffy: Even If You Have Never Boiled An Egg Before."
