#3. Beyond Curry Indian Cookbook: A Culinary Journey Through India - Denise D'silva Sankhé
I have been told by a professional chef that Indian cooking is one of the most difficult cuisines he ever tried to learn. He also said, if you can cook Indian, you can cook anything.
According to the publisher:
In Beyond Curry, An Indian Cookbook, Denise shares her rich personal story of Indian cooking with profiles of unique regional Indian food. You’ll explore Indian cooking with convenient, no-fuss recipes, accessible ingredients, and must-know secrets behind authentic Indian food. Discover delicacies from the North (Tandoori Chicken) to breakfast delights from the South (Dosas) to popular Indian-Chinese dishes, and much more.
Whether you long to recreate beloved childhood recipes, are a time-strapped professional, or a home cook new to Indian cooking, Beyond Curry, An Indian Cookbook guides you through a cuisine that is diverse, satisfying—and easy to create in your kitchen.
Let's look at what some of the reviewers have to say about it:
We love Indian food and sadly don't have many option in our town to enjoy it at, so I was super excited when I came across this book. I really liked how there were recipes for some of the common pastes and spice combinations like Garam Masala and Ginger garlic paste.
Bought this book on a friend's recommendation and believe you me my my office lunches are nothing but excellent these days. My dinners are a detour to India sitting right here in Ohio. My wife's really on a ride with this book in her hand and I'm so not complaining!!!
