Real fast Indian food? A wonderful Indian feast in half an hour? Surely that's impossible. Not if you follow the new queen of Indian cooking, Mridula Baljekar.
Spending time in the kitchen cooking and preparing meals is getting more and more difficult with the demands of today's hectic lifestyles. The temptation to rely on the bland, ready-prepared dishes sold in the supermarket is strong. But creating attractive and delicious Indian dishes with fresh ingredients is not as time-consuming as it is believed to be and the end result is far superior!
Mridula Baljekar shows in this book that all it takes to recreate her tasty and authentic meals is a little organization and a few simple steps. Then you too can enjoy, in no time at all, Mridula's unrivalled knowledge of traditional Indian cuisine, fathered from her many travels round India - recipes like fried chilli chicken with coconut and curry leaves, masala channa dahl with courgettes, and smoked mackerel on spicy vegetable cakes. After trying Mridula's recipes, you will never want to go back to ready-prepared Indian meals again!
