Nandita Godbole – Ebook Giveaways

Nandita Godbole is the voice behind the website, Curry Cravings, where she shares her expertise in Indian cuisine. She is also the author of several books on Indian cooking and today I am sharing two titles with you.

Nandita pulled from her grandfathers’ teachings to share the fundamental building blocks of the Indian cuisine in Crack The Code: Cook Any Indian Meal with Confidence. Here she demystifies the seemingly complex Indian cuisine to make it easy and effortless for everyone. Two dozen recipes that showcase the roles of spices & ingredients, highlights the importance of layering & balancing flavors, and most notably, includes fool-proof techniques to build essential taste profiles for delicious Indian as well as Indian-inspired dishes.

Our second title today is Not for You: Family Narratives of Denial & Comfort Foods, Book One, Nandita’s first food fiction and fourth cookbook on Indian food, which shares a heartwarming tale inspired by family lore about conquering public and private versions of ‘denial’ and how food became integral to shaping identities.

The author shared links for two recipes from this title that can be found here Chickpea gravy pithla and Quick puffed rice mix murmurya. Be sure you add those two recipes to your bookshelf. 

Nandita is offering five iBooks of each title, US based, and five copies of each book worldwide on GooglePlay (requires a account). Please enter below.

    I don't have much experience with Indian food but my husband brought me a wrap once from a restaurant he delivers for (through amazon) and it was perfect. It was loaded with veggies, spicy, and probably the freshest thing ever. I also make my own naan bread because it is super fast and easy to do.
