Cookbook Giveaway – Saffron Soul

Saffron Soul: Healthy, Vegetarian Heritage Recipes from India by Mira Manek delivers a modern interpretation of Indian classics, creating naturally healthy dishes that are as flavorful as their original counterparts. Mira combines the best of the core elements of Indian cooking with original health-promoting twists. Mira also recreates some perennial favourites, replacing traditionally used grains and sugar with more nutritious ingredients such as millet, chia and jaggery, and cutting down on oils and fats, to make her dishes even healthier.
